Red Gingham Dress With Statement Sleeves

Head to Toe: Dress, Thrifted (similar) // Bag, J.McLaughlin (similar) // Sandals, Cambiani 

For me, nothing kickstarts Monday like a good outfit. I was super excited to wear this Who What Wear dress I nabbed at Goodwill over the weekend. I tried it on for Sean and said, "I am aware I look like a giant tablecloth and I love it." To which he replied, "It looks nice." He's a smart hubby.

I also like to kickstart Monday by working out of my Dad's office, and we were lucky enough to get in a good walk by the water before the storms started. I also dodged the rain long enough to go grocery shopping without getting soaked and recovered an earring I thought I'd lost. Sorry for the mundane details, but it's of all the little things that can add up to a good day. These would be good tidbits to write in my gratitude journal, which I am considering taking up. Do you keep one? Let me start with this: I'm thankful for you, dear readers! XOXO, Gossip Girl Annie.

Overalls, a Dad Hat, and my Ugly Fitbit

Head to Toe: Overalls, Marshall's // Hat, NYC vendor // Shoes, Sebago

I wore this outfit last week for "casual Monday." Because when you're a freelancer everyday can be casual, and this is actually pretty "dressed" compared to my typical leggings/T-shirt combo. One accessory that is too casual, in my opinion, is my black Fitbit band. I always try to remember to take my it off for blog photos but forgot for these. In general, I wish there was a more attractive way to wear it. I just ordered this cuff on Amazon for a slightly more attractive option, but I have to admit I'm not jazzed about it.

I was bummed because I was in a wedding last weekend and did all the steps on the dance floor, but couldn't wear my clunky fitness tracker. (And if you're not wearing your tracker, did the steps even exist?) I'm toying with the idea of sewing some kind of pouch into my underwear, or finding a chic way to wrap a silk scarf around it. Or should I just embrace the 2019 and stop being so bothered by the little black band? Tell me, do you wear a tracker? And if so, how do you rock it?
