Me, I would prefer if it didn’t have the party in the back because who needs to deal with bra dilemmas. Still, I imagine that’s the defining feature for almost everyone else. Full Article

I’m not big on belts. Like if I was wearing this dress I’d go without the belt and let it hang baggy and loose. That said, the way she’s wearing it with this belt, and exactly the position of the belt, looks great. The silhouette that’s created, with the skirt sort of fanning out at the waist and falling below the knee is really, really pretty. Full Article

Dear Duana, I have a sweet yet spunky daughter named Flora. I get that some people find the name choice strange (bacteria! margarine!), but overwhelmingly, the reaction has been positive. It helps that we live close to Italy! The name struck a chord with me because I'm a fan of 1890s novels. Full Article

Hayley Posted by Hayley at August 5, 2016 19:04:14 August 5, 2016 19:04:14

Hi Hayley, I recently had my second (and last!) baby and am eager to restart a fitness routine. Prior to having children I ran full and half marathons, cycled, swam, and the only strength training I ever stuck to is barre-style workouts.
