The Return of The Low Rise:
For some reason I'll never understand, Express discontinued their very popular low-rise "Stella" jeans awhile back. I noticed they had lots of complaints about it on their Instagram account, and it seems like they finally listened to the voice of the people and brought back a low rise option. I didn't hesitate to order these when I saw them online (when I hesitate, they seem to sell out in my size!) and they are just as soft, comfortable, and flattering as the original Stellas! I also love the distressing on this particular pair, and I actually wore them twice within my first week of getting them! They fit true to size for me, and as usual at 5'4" I went with the Short inseam option. Here's how the look on me vs. the Model:

Sometimes the color depiction of denim online can be confusing or misleading, but in this case I felt it was rather accurate. Looking at these photos together I would say it's slightly less bright than the website display, but that may just be the studio lighting the used. All-in-all I'm very happy with these!
(The Last) Workout Recap:
As the title of this section implies, this will be my last workout recap. I started doing these in October, and by March I had made my way through my entire DVD library. I debated whether to continue at that point, and based on some reader feedback at the time, I decided to keep continue for the time being. It's been almost two months since then, and I have to say my heart is not in it when it comes to creating fitness content...especially now that I'm just repeating myself. I enjoy doing workouts much more than I enjoy writing about them! With that said, I appreciate those of you who have connected with me through this section and a big thank you to Margaret for suggesting it in the first place! I am glad I experimented with some fitness content and that I have 7 months worth of workout diaries as a reference point for those who ask about my routine! It was definitely worth the effort, but I think going forward I'll only share fitness content if there's something new I'm doing/trying that feels worth mentioning.
(Update: I'm also considering sharing my workout of the day on Snapchat since that might be an easier way for me to pass along the same information for those interested. Feel free to follow along there: @ontheDailyX)
Also, for those of you who asked some questions in my March Fitness Content Survey (or for new readers!), I would recommend checking out this post and this one as I addressed a lot of common diet and fitness questions there!
