I love a good shift dress. More so, one that I can take from Summer to Fall and that’s the case with this long sleeve and blush style from Wal G. I can’t wait to style this little number with some booties, but for now I went with my trusty Guess Gladiators. This dress could also look ultra feminine with some sleek heels, but I thought I give it a sportier look. Especially since I’m not a fan of pink, whenever I wear a shade of it I like to edge it up!
A shift dress and statement sandals are great for a weekend look and have definitely been a combo I’ve sporting a lot lately. Easy and Comfy!
Leave the pretty striping drips down the glass.Or mix it all up for that classic float look.I workout everyday, I drink almost two gallons of water a day and I eat one raw meal a day. Will I ever give up my beer? HECK no. I’d like to say I do all of the above, so that I can indulge happily and guilt freely. And beer is one of my favorite indulgences. So the other day I bought a big ole bottle of Guinness Draught and while I love dark beer enough to drink it straight, I wanted to make a little something special with this bad boy. Behold, this Guinness beer float recipe.
Growing up I was actually never a fan of root beer floats, I wish I can say I was just a float snob and was waiting to be of age to try the real deal. But in actuality, I just respect ice cream so much, I wouldn’t dare add anything to it. (so does that make me an ice cream snob?) That’s what I love about these floats, there is no ice cream in them. Instead, I used condensed milk to sweeten it up and added a dollop of whipped cream on top. Guys, so good. For these dwindling days of Summer, I would so recommend making this for a weekend afternoon on the porch.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have a penchant for kimonos. They’re just so versatile and I’m pretty excited to soon be transitioning them into my Fall wardrobe. Stay tuned for that post-until then I’m still all about these kimono cardigans for the last days of Summer. Most likely with denim cutoffs and gladiator sandals, because what the heck else is a girl to wear when it’s 97 degrees outside? Got to love Miami!
P.S. I’m sure you’ve noticed my new blog design, I’m in love! I can now offer you all so many more cool options. One of them being that you can now shop my current favorites! On my sidebar you’ll see a “Shop My Favorites” button, if you click on that you’ll be taken to my page that displays what I’m loving lately-shoes, dresses, sunnies etc. Or you can scroll in the box beneath the “Shop My Favorites” button and click on a specific item to be taken directly to where you can purchase it! You can also shop my Instagram Pics in the section below that…too cool! (I’m kind of excited about it all, can’t you tell?)
Today I’m sharing with you a little DIY I created this past weekend. I absolutely love rustic decor and love coming up with ideas to give any gathering that extra touch of woodsy. This DIY is for a Seating Chart Board displayed on a Welcome Table, which is pretty much a table set by the entrance of your party/lunch/dinner to greet guests with their seat placement and a place where they can go ahead and grab a glass to serve themselves a drink. (No need to keep the waiting!)This DIY is so simple and that’s what I love about it. Simply cut and glue the ribbon along the edges of the board, I used spray glue. Then tie together the branches with a piece of ribbon and glue them to the board, followed by gluing the heart on top. Next, focus on simple and delicate lettering as you write the names and table labels. All it takes is a steady hand and simple lettering to ensure guests can see their names clearly. I’m no calligraphist, but it’s fun playing around with different styles of lettering! After writing, glue the papers onto the board and place clothespins (I used gold glitter ones, to tie the look together) on top of the seating lists as a finishing touch. There are so many different color schemes and styles to go with when making a seating chart, but a cork board is definitely a great and inexpensive way to start!
Happy Monday beauties! I thought I’d have today’s style post be full of color and fun since today is Monday. How does it get here so quickly? Anyway, I had my eye on this cute little shift number from Lulus for quite some time and now I’m so happy it’s made its way into my closet. What I love about shift dresses is the fact that you can wear them very mod, like I did here, or you can belt them and modernize them like I did in this post. I also loved juxtaposing the femininity of the dress and print with structured and edgy gladiator sandals. The pair I’m wearing is from Prima Dona and are sold out, but I’ve linked up two very similar pairs up top!
I recently wore this dress to my best friend’s bridesmaid’s brunch and knew it was the perfect choice for these dwindling Summer events. Can you believe there is only less than two months left of Summer? Time flies! I am pretty excited though to start incorporating those warmer tones into my wardrobe soon…
Have a wonderful week!
This dish would’ve had me just at fritters, but it has Parmesan, cauliflower and carrots too…upping its game immensely. Even if you’re a self-proclaimed “I don’t do cauliflower” person, I guarantee you are when it’s bundled in these fritters.
No single ingredient in these fritters is striking, it all blends so well. Add some garlic aoili to dip (or drizzle, if you’re fancy) and make sure you cook a dozen just for yourself. You know research. To make sure you’re really into this new cauliflower thing. Yea, self-discovery-research.
Yields: roughly 13
2 1/2 cups cauliflower florets, or a 18-20 oz bag
8 oz/ 1 cup matchstick-cut carrots
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
pinch of salt
3 green onions, thinly sliced
2 egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons olive oil
pinch of salt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 1/2 garlic cloves, pressed and finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tbs fresh lemon juice
In a small pot, combine Cauliflower, carrots and just enough water to cover them + another inch of water. Boil for roughly 5 minutes, until soft. Drain, allow to cool and dry with paper towel. Then finely chop.
Toss the veggies into a bowl with the flour and gently coat. Then add the beaten egg, Parmesan, Romano, green onions and salt. Form into fritters (basically mini patties).
Heat olive oil in a skillet and place fritters into pan, flipping every four minutes until each side is golden brown.
To make aoili, simply mix everything together in a small bowl.
