After a summer of too much work and not enough exercise, I was dismayed—but not at all surprised—that my skinny jeans were feeling snug. I've since resolved to get back to a healthier routine: salsa, yoga, and using the elliptical in my building's gym twice a week. I'm not expecting miraculous overnight results (I'm no fool), but there are tangible benefits already. Better sleep, more energy, and improved digestion are enough to keep me on track.
Until I'm back to my old self, I'll be wearing Things With Forgiving Waists in heavy rotation, of which this drawstring waist silk tunic is a prime example. It's a perfect transitional closet staple, season-wise and weight-wise. So glad I also bought this in another colour.
