Oh my goodness you guys…last week was one of the absolute busiest weeks I’ve had in a while. Between flying to West Palm Beach for 36 hours to shoot a video all day, to launching my 4th Travel Collection with Gigi New York, creating and executing my new Wellness Series, running to meetings, shooting content, dealing with paperwork/contracts, and having friends in town – I was a complete and total Z-O-M-B-I-E by Saturday. I decided to cancel all remaining weekend social plans and take 24 hours to recharge solo. I did yoga, took a bubble bath, caught up on emails, burned my favorite candles, and watched trashy reality TV shows. It was magical and much needed and I feel like a whole new woman. Over the years, I have come to value the importance of alone time. As somewhat of an introvert/homebody, it is 100% necessary for me. I love my friends and being out and about, BUT can’t function without “me” time. This is a topic I’m really excited to expand on more with my Wellness Series. If you missed my instastory yesterday – you can sign up for the series here! I’m giving away amazing products in the beauty, fashion, travel and wellness categories every single week this summer so you don’t want to miss out! This off the shoulder dress is a new favorite and I wore it to a beautiful brunch with Net-A-Porter and Reese Witherspoon in celebration of her Draper James collection. It was a glamorous day set inside a stunning home in Beverly Hills. One second I see Rachel Zoe to my right, and the next I see Garance Dore (my idol), Chelsea Handler, Jennifer Garner and my dear friend Louise Roe to the left. I’m so glad I wore heels with the dress (I changed into sandals to snap these photos later) because it was definitely a dressier lunch. When I buy clothes, I always think about cost per wear. Will I be able to dress it up with heels? Will I be able to wear it casually with flats? Can I wear it throughout the year, styled different ways, and will it be timeless for years to come? This dress checks all of those boxes AND it’s currently on sale. You can snap it up here!
