(The downside to chronicling your life online is that you can control+F almost anything you've blogged about; the last time I wrote about this, back in January, I set myself a goal that I clearly didn't make. Oof.)
The past month, though, has felt good. I signed up for a 10k at the end of October, so I'm back on track with my running, I'm making better decisions about food (and, not incidentally, drinking less), work is going really well, and Jon's here. I feel great, and that means I'm ready to put my health first again in a way that I really wasn't able to nine months ago.
Because of that, when it came time to get a dress for my organization's annual gala, I didn't want to buy anything. I'm currently a size I haven't been in years and I didn't want to spend a silly amount of money on a dress that, hopefully, will be too big for me when next year's gala rolls around. Thank goodness for Rent the Runway, right?
I browsed these four gorgeous dresses on the site, finally ordering the pink Badgley Mischka because I'd worn it (in red and in a smaller size) to my former employer's gala in April 2013 and it made me feel fabulous. I haven't yet figured out which accessories I'll wear it with, but keep an eye on my Instagram this weekend - you'll know as soon as I do!
