My Little Black Dress

Post Type

It’s what some women refer to as their little black dress. Unfortunately you aren’t going to see me wearing one, haha. It’s a term used by people who are wanting to either lose weight and/or tone up to fit into their Christmas party dress.


Every Christmas I treat myself to a new shirt and this year I turned to Mainline Menswear and their Ralph LaurenLong Sleeved Custom Fit Shirt In French Navy. I like a shirt to fit me well on my chest and shoulders and this certainly did that, it was a great fit. The shirt is 100% cotton so feels great on my skin and as an eczema sufferer this is very important to me.


If you’re after a new Christmas shirt, I’d highly recommend Mainline Menswear. They have top brands available at great prices. Delivery was top notch too! They don’t have any little black dresses but they do have designer jeans, t-shirts, jumpers, jackets, footwear and several accessories.


Christmas is normally the time of year where we feel relaxed and let our hair down in terms of our health and fitness. For the past two years I’ve trained for charity challenges – the 12 Days of Christmas for the Percy Hedley Foundation and the 12 parkruns of Christmas for the Tiny Lives Trust. This year will involve a challenge something along the lines of the 12 Pubs of Christmas! I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on my fitness though. I never train on Christmas day, to be honest I’ll probably take a full week off. It’s all too easy to curl up on the sofa, watch TV and eat chocolates all day though. I’m hoping with the addition of Yogi, we’ll be doing more walking over the festive period.


I wish you all the best and I hope you fit into your little black dress or shirt!


Stay fit, stay healthy.
