I’ve noticed an ever increasing number of life coaches. One thing I noticed is that the majority of them have not really achieved (professionally or personally) much and are trying to coach others? That makes me wonder… is there real demand for all this? Are people so lost that they really see value in it?

Favorite work-appropriate fit and flare dresses? (Ideally something around or just above the knee.)

Context: Newer mom sitting ~15lbs higher than my usual and nothing in my closet fits. It’s been 8 months, and I think it’s time to bite the bullet… I’m a little extra curvy on bottom after pushing out a baby, so I’m feeling a little more confident with something less fitted on bottom these days! 😅
