Jessica Simpson Sizzles in Hot Pink Dress at Friend’s Baby Shower (PHOTO)

jessica simpson hot pink dressWow, this hot mama just keeps looking better and better. Over the weekend Jessica Simpson Instagrammed a selfie in a hot pink dress with pregnant pal Lauren Harrison. Jessica was celebrating at her friend's baby shower -- and she almost upstaged the mom-to-be with her summer glow and HOLY SUPERWOMAN CALVES! I'm just saying. Jessica looks fabulously fit, and I think she enjoys sharing the results of all her hard work with everyone else. Can't say I blame her!


AMIRITE? She kind of makes me want to drop everything right now and run over to the gym for the rest of the day. It's one thing to shed baby weight and get skinny. What I admire more is getting strong. That's definitely what moms especially need more. Being slim is a nice-to-have, but being strong means you have the stamina for your busy life. It's also a great example to set for your kids, and it shows you're here for the long haul. You're investing in yourself now to ensure good health for a lifetime. Good for Jessica!

I think that shade of pink is so flattering on her, too. That dress is a great example of how to look sexy and show off your curves without over-sharing, if you know what I mean. Just a juicy summer color that grabs your eyes in a body-skimming cut that hits that sweet spot about about three inches above the knee. Any shorter and it's verging on inappropriate for daytime (especially a baby shower). But any longer and it would shorten her leg a bit. That's my favorite skirt length to wear, personally.

Jessica is getting fit for her wedding, but I think this is going to be a lifetime affair for her. Once you find out what you can do post-kids, it motivates you to keep going forever. I hope Jessica does! She clearly doesn't need to lose any weight, but we all know that if you want to keep those gams, you've got to use them over and over again.

Do photos of Jessica inspire you to work out more?
