Busy as a...

This week has passed so quickly because I've been so busy at work. I'm glad it's Friday, and I'm looking forward to spending the evening with my good friend, Erin, who is in town visiting. We are headed to one of my favorite Atlanta restaurants: JCT Kitchen. I definitely plan to sample some fabulous cocktails so I can really unwind!

Today's photo and outfit details:

Dress: French Connection Black and Grey Sheath Dress

I bought this dress back in 2013, so it's no longer available. I don't wear it all that often, honestly, because it's not lined, and as you can see, it's supposed to fit your every curve. My advice when you're wearing a close-fitting dress like this one? Spanx. My husband hates when I wear Spanx, but it makes me feel better about myself (and not so self-conscious about my hips and thighs).

There's nothing wrong with Spanx-ing it up from time to time. Even celebrities as skinny as Kristen Stewart love Spanx, and Miranda mentioned the brand on more than one occasion on Sex and the City.

Shoes: BCBGMaxAzria Black and Silver Pumps

This weekend, I will be running a 5K - Lauren's Run to Cure Childhood Cancer - with my dad. I haven't run a race since the Peachtree Road Race in July, so I hope I can improve upon my time from last year. My knee has been giving me some problems lately, so we shall see... Wish me luck!
