I am lateraling because my firm has forced us back into the office 5 days a week. My office isn’t super social and we are all slammed, so going into the office consists of sitting alone in my office, just like I would at home, except I wasted an hour getting ready and commuting, am in uncomfortable clothes, and am less efficient. I am actually miserable sitting alone in a cold, drab office as opposed to hanging out in a beautiful home office with my dog. People in power: take note.

In a week, I have a black tie wedding coming up at a beautiful indoor/outdoor city venue. I’m stumped about a dress because I’m also 3 weeks postpartum from my first child. I gained 50lbs during my pregnancy and have already lost 35 since the birth. (It’s amazing how much of it was just baby + bloat!) I am looking for a dress that will hide the mommy tummy (some loose skin that’s still tightening). I’m also nursing and my boobs are HUGE rn. Any recs on how to try to dress this new body?? 🥲
