dress life


I've always been the type of person who runs hot.  Like, if I go to the gym, I leave dripping sweat. And if it's mega hot outside, same. I've always envied those who can endure these types of conditions without their makeup sliding down their face. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy both exercise, and summertime. But just when I thought I couldn't be more disgusting of a human, I became a mother - and now I'm even more sweaty. Like, what is going on?

I'm not sure if it's because as a mom I'm always on high alert, or because I'm constantly carrying around a child who is growing at an alarming rate? Or perhaps it's something to do with these hormones. So many hormones...

In any case, light, airy dresses are my new best friend, and this coral one was recently on sale for $30 at Zara.  Who could argue with that? It has these cute ruffley sleeves, pockets (!!!) and a tie waist, and it's just so darn effortless. Not to mention, coral is the new it colour. Seriously, it's popping up everywhere! I'm now on the hunt for a wide, neutral belt - I think that would be a super cute alternative to the tie! (Let me know if you find one!)
