A few reasons Stella’s got her groove back. And yes, I did just call myself Stella.
ONE: This dress!
You know I’m normally a caftan kinda gal. And while that will likely never change, this dress, which is a bit more figure-flattering, made me feel good again.
On a good day, I might feel cute. But sexy isn’t a word that’s normally used to describe me. But this dress made me feel, dare I say, sexy? Who am I?!
If you’re feeling a little low, I couldn’t recommend it more. Retail therapy for the win.
I’m wearing a size XS and it’s perfect (I’m usually a 2 in dresses, if that helps). I’m also considering getting the pink version I love it so much.
FYI: This isn’t sponsored or anything (though feel free to hit me up, Rixo!), just a dress I bought and loved and certainly a brand I think you should know about.
TWO: Inspiration Vacation
We shot these pictures at the Aven, a new luxury residential building in downtown LA, who was kind enough to invite us for an influencer stay.
I’ll write about this more later this week, but being in a different environment always makes me feel more alive. This was the jolt we needed in our daily routine. I’ll share more snaps in a future post, but it’s a good reminder to do something a little out of your usual routine.
THREE: Face Time With Friends
I got in some really good friend time this weekend and today. Joy’s surprise birthday party had me feeling grateful to know so many great people for so long, and to reconnect with people I hadn’t seen since the last big party.
Same today, for a lovely event Jen hosted for a collaboration she did with Artemis. I also got to catch up with Sal, who was so sweet to puppysit Odee when we went to Joy’s party.
They say that the key difference in longevity and people living longer, happier lives is having a rich social life — and meaningful connections. This weekend was proof of that.
While there were so many more friends I wish we had time to see, it definitely has me looking forward to much more of that soon. And feeling super grateful.
Okay, I’m off to take my bebe Odee for a walk and soak up being back home.
Peeks of our weekend over on Instagram + Stories, and I’ll share more here soon.
Thanks, as always, for reading + I hope you had a great Monday xo!
