I have a few adult skating friends who feel, like me, that the costumes are skimpy and they didn’t feel like themselves. I knew I would have to find something that fit me. All of the skating costumes from the 1940s and 1950s were perfect. When I found a pattern I loved--- it had fit. It had flare. It met all the criteria for my skating test.
I loved the dress. It felt like something I would wear even when not pregnant: it was sophisticated, the fabric was beautiful, and it was even flattering.
You can be creative with Kit. There are guardrails for the creativity, but you aren’t starting from a blank page. If I went out to do this by myself, I wouldn’t have even known the place to start. Merin has great taste and an amazing eye for fabrics. You can trust her and know she will make your vision work.
It's been a good day if... I've been able to positively impact someone else, whether through a networking intro or a special dress that fits them perfectly.
Right now I'm grappling with: creating a vision board for my life 5 and 10 years from now.
The one thing I try to do every day is: practice mindfulness and be thankful.
My current season in life: is there a season called survival?
The best part of my day is: dinner, when the kids really start talking about school and their days. It is hilarious to hear a random song learned in music or playground story.
My best 'getting ready for the day' hack is getting up in time for "me time" - this allows me to wash my face, make a cup of coffee, and have a moment before forced into action.
Most days are pretty unpredictable with lots of shifting appointments, deliveries and trying to wedge in some basic errands that I’ve needed to do for weeks!
