Wear It Now & For Fall: Off The Shoulder Wine Dress

23 August 2016

Since my sights are officially set on transitioning my wardrobe to fall I've ceased adding summery pieces to my closet and have started purchasing pieces that not only work for now, but also for the fall season. This dress for example, it's amazing with these sandals and even pair of sneakers. But, my true intention for adding it to my cart was to pair it with my over the knee cognac boots. I mean, these colors together, am I right? Aside from the dreamy wine hue, I love the faux button up detail and the tied bell sleeve - perfect for cooler autumn days. I hate to say it but I'm starting to look more and more forward to crisp fall days and the leaves falling...

Tobi Sundance Lace Up Maxi Dress

22 August 2016

I own my fair share of lace up pieces, mostly in neutral colors like black and cognac (aka tan). They're easy colors to wear and with fall on the horizon I'll more than likely start wearing these go-with-everything hues on a regular basis. But, after seeing this Tobi lace up maxi in plum (also in black!) I realized I needed to add a little color to the rotation. Wear it now, alone with sandals to take advantage of the last days of summer under the sun; or later, layered with a grey turtleneck underneath for some texture and coverage. I chose to keep it somewhat in the middle with a moto topper opened just enough to see the lace up details without showing too much skin for a night out. The addition of sandals keeps it summery, but I have a feeling this dress is going to be just as amazing with suede boots peeking out come autumn. 

Remember, Tobi customers get 50% off their first order, so do a little shopping and check out their midi and maxi dresses, they even have affordable & cute bridemaid dresses.

Pineapple Jalapeno Yogurt Popsicles

18 August 2016

In honor of National Hot and Spicy Food day tomorrow I decided to whip up some fiery yogurt pops that pack just enough sweet and fire that not only fit the bill for tomorrow's 'holiday' but the last days of summer as well. If you're a spicy fan I highly recommend checking out Noosa's New Sweet heat yoghurts. I'm partial to the Pineapple Jalapeno & Blackberry Serano, they are freaking delicious. 

Originally, I wanted to use the Pineapple Jalapeno Yoghurt to top my baked tacos but something about the summer weather steered me straight to popsicles. I am obsessed. They're creamy, fruity with a tinge of heat. I drizzled mine with a little Siracha for extra fire and it was perfection. Plus, it doesn't hurt that they are ridiculously easy to make. 

Pineapple Jalapeno Yogurt Popsicles (Yields 4 Popsicles)
What you need:
1 Package Noosa Pineapple and Jalapeno Yohgurt
1/4 Fresh or Frozen Pineapple, Cut into small pieces
1/4 Cup Milk (I used whole)

Optional: Siracha to drizzle 

1. Combine Yogurt and a bowl, stirring until smooth. 

2. Drop pineapple pieces into popsicle molds. Coat with Yogurt mixture and freeze overnight (or at least 6 hours if you're impatient). 

3. Drizzle with Siracha and enjoy.

Maxi Dresses and Sneakers

17 August 2016

If there's one dress in my closet that has gotten the most wear, it is 100% this dress. I honestly almost sent it back last summer when I bought it because the $168 price tag scared me a little bit but as it would turn out it was one of the best purchases yet. I've lived most of this summer in it, with heels, espadrilles and now, sneakers. I can't help but love the laid back casual vibe with the addition of sneakers. Why didn't I think of this sooner?

Tobi Wrap Dress

16 August 2016

Wrap dresses, you know I'm obsessed. 

Truth, It's hard not to be. They're universally flattering and work for just about every season. Which is probably why this navy version (also in nude) from Tobi immediately caught my eye when I was scrolling through through their new arrivals a couple weeks back. Obviously my fall wardrobe needed it, stat. Wear it now with lace up sandals and transition it later with suede knee high chestnut boots. 

I went a little 'tie' crazy and wore it with a wrapped leather choker, lace up sandals and a leather crossbody. I could easily wear this outfit on repeat until summer ends, and then some. Who's with me?

Pssst. new Tobi customers get 50% off their first order, so do a little shopping and check out their midi and maxi dresses, white dresses, and party dresses (sequin too!).

Summer to Fall Transitioning: Boho Tops and Denim

While I'm not 100% ready to set my sight on Fall there are days where a pair of jeans feels like the only possible fit for an occassion. Sure, it was 90 something degrees last week when I chose to give this look a go, but this top (thankfully) kept me cool as cucumber for my lapse of denim wearing judgement. 

After seeing these pictures I immediately fell in love with this outfit, which means you might be seeing it more than once, maybe on a cooler September day.
