Woman Crush Wednesday: Olivia Wilde

Helloooooo! Or maybe I should rephrase that to “hello?” Anyone there? It’s been a while (sorry!), but I’m back and excited to reconnect with each of you. In my last post I talked about how I was starting some contract work from home, which has been all sorts of wonderful. I just wrapped up a project that was really fun and packed with learning, and perhaps the biggest lesson I took away was that of balance and ensuring I give proper attention to everything on my plate at any given time. I’m really grateful for opportunities like these because such lessons are something I will face at one point or another, so I always prefer to embrace them sooner than later. And the learning – my hungry brain does a happy dance with each new task I take on!

I thought it would be fun to come back with a #wcw, or Woman Crush Wednesday post. One where I talk about the big lady crush I have on this gal right here:

Olivia Wilde is someone I admire for a lot of reasons – her talent, style, wit and humor are but a few of them. She recently joined the ranks of motherhood, too, and I just loved her take on her post-baby body in the April issue of Shape Magazine. It can be an intense battle when you combine your own insecurities and the societal pressures of what women should look like after growing a human! But she comes along and casually injects these bits of hilarity that bring everything back to reality again. Bottom line for any woman nitpicking each part of their unique selves (myself included) – love the evidence of bringing a child into the world and have fun while getting in shape. And if you so choose, make like Olivia and dance your butt off!

Which woman are you crushing on?
