4 Tips To Maintaining A Flat Belly During The Holiday Season + My Go To Party Outfit

IMG_4514 IMG_4499 IMG_4493 Tis the season! But what to wear? And what should I eat to stay slim throughout?

I have 4 rules I like to stick to in effort to avoid holiday outfit stress and weight gain:

1. SPANX and sparkle. Always wear a good pair of SPANX (my personal favorite item is the Trust Your Thinstincts Camisole) and a little bit of sparkle to a holiday party. SPANX will keep you feeling your absolute best and the sparkle will make you feel festive. Case in point, this outfit I wore to a recent holiday party. I started with my SPANX cami because I wear it under everything. It has a flattering sweeping neckline and it’s super thin, sleek fabric slims my tummy and love handles. Then I added a pair of sparkley Isabel Marant for H&M pants (interchangeable with a sequin skirt or shorts) and the rest is pretty simple: black button up, cool necklace, snazzy clutch and a good moto jacket.

2. Curb the booze. Be careful of your alcohol intake, drinking your calories can really pack on the pounds, so try to stick to one or two drinks. If you’re like me and like to hold a drink while at parties, sort of like a security blanket, try sipping on glasses of sparkling water in-between alcoholic beverages. It can really help curb your appetite for additional cocktails.

3. Make wise food choices. Before I go any further I MUST say that it’s important to indulge. I haven’t met a warmed baked brie that I haven’t fallen in love with and it’s pretty much impossible to pass up a glass of bubbly – allow yourself those pleasures (espeically if you already have your SPANX on!) but maintain a healthy balance. When it comes to foods choices at the parties keep an eye out for these top 8 flat belly-friendly foods:  (1) Spinach, (2) Kale, (3) Eggs, (4) Salmon, (5) Beans, 6) Nut Butters [like almond & walnut], (7) Apples, (8) Avocados. It’s no surprise that all of the ingredients are super high in protein, fiber and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Not only are all of these ingredients great for obtaining that flat belly, but they’re beneficial for cardiovascular health, bone health and much more.

4. Move your body! It’s easy to get lazy and slack on your workout regimen during the holidays but DON’T. Simply getting up and taking a walk makes a difference. Just remember, champagne, cheese and then cardio!

I’m wearing: Trust Your Thinstincts Camisole, Everlane silk round collar blouse, DYLANLEX Harper necklace, AllSaints Balfern leather jacket, Isabel Marant for H&M pants, vintage clutch and Isabel Marant Gatsy zebra-print suede pumps

No Sign Of Fall

Geri Hirsch
It’s November 10th and still no sign of fall weather here in LA. It was 85 this weekend. 85! Really not fun for girls like me who love layers and outerwear.

Dresses, booties and this fringe bag have been my uniform as I try not to melt while impatiently waiting for the days of bombers, scarves and hats.

I really hope those of you getting chillier weather are taking full advantage of your fall wardrobes. Us Cali girls are definitely envious!

Details: Sam + Lavi Elodie dress, Paul Smith boots, Saint Laurent fringe small bucket bag, Ray Ban sunnies
