Chrissy Teigen Has the *One* Layering Piece You Need for Summer
You love Chrissy Teigen, aka baby Luna’s mom, for a variety of reasons. But if there’s one thing she slays at (besides making us all crack up… and indulgent cooking… okay, AND being an overall #girlboss), it’s style.
Over on Instagram, she debuted a really cool item that will make all your summer dressing super easy: a kimono. In the pic, Chrissy is shown wearing a printed version that features contrasting flower prints over a simple white crop top and denim cut-off shorts. It works because it’s definitely tying together her casual at-home outfit with a bit of flair, color and print.
And while Chrissy is wearing it almost as a sweater here, don’t be surprised if it makes another cameo further down the line this summer as a beach cover-up robe (fancy word: dressing gown) or even a trench-like layer for colder summer nights. Chrissy’s super real when it comes to fashion, so it’s a good bet she might wear it again when she shares another at-home pic — hopefully one with her adorable baby girl and hubby!
Go ahead, give it a try. Ease into the piece with a pair of jeans and a white tank while the weather is still *fairly* cool, or wear it around the house to give your mornings a bit of a Hollywood vibe. But the best use for it might be on your next trip to the beach, where it can do both of these things, plus act as a cover-up when you take a break from the sun and fun.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
