The Sexy New Celeb Trend That You Can Totally Pull Off at Work
This might be the ultimate proof that there’s no such thing as dressing your age. January Jones and Meryl Streep were both recently snapped wearing the same, super sexy trend — sheer polka dots — and they each looked exquisite, 29 year age difference be dammed.
The former Mad Men star donned a completely see-through Zimmermann top — scalloped bra on full display — to the brand’s LA store opening and Streep wore a Balenciaga jumpsuit with sheer panels that showed off her stomach, sides and arms on The Tonight Show promoting her new flick, Ricki and the Flash. We could easily imagine the stars swapping outfits (and nailing each other’s looks), and it’s all thanks to the addition of the preppy print. Not only does it make the edgy garments feel more elegant — even work-worthy, with a few HR-approved adjustments — but the spots also add a playful touch to the looks without weighing it down, unlike the boho fringe trim you’re seeing everywhere. We’re loving that there’s a chic alternative to the eclectic flare this fall.

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!
