Casual Leather

Hello hello!

Happy Monday!

Can you guys guess what I've been doing all weekend? Like every other Netflix viewer, I have been watching House of Cards episode after House of Cards episode. I started late Saturday night and plan on finishing the season tomorrow. The show has not disappointed me so far and I'm excited to see what else is planned. If you don't watch House of Cards, I highly you start. 

Enough TV talk; for this outfit I wore simple separates(distressed denim, flowy blouse, leather jacket) for an overall edgy-casual look. The most defining piece here are the cage shoes, which work so well with the leather jacket. I recall seeing lots of gladiator/cage style sandals on the runway for spring/summer 2015 so this is my attempt at being trendy. I've also linked up some gladiator sandal options below...

Neon Rain

Hello hello.

Unfortunately, snow did not hit my part of the world, so I was stuck in rainboots the past few days. Here is a quick rainy day look that I brightened up with a lime green tee and a light-weight spring scarf. I also threw on some mint earrings for more color; I love how lime and mint look together. My one necessity on a rainy day is an article of clothing with a pop of color. Its the only way I can stay cheerful on an otherwise grey day. I can guarantee that this look, or a variation of this, will be on repeat during the upcoming rainy spring days!

Tribal Wrap

Hello hello!

Yay we made it through Monday! Y'all, there's a very slight chance of snow here in Georgia, so I'm excited to see if it gets cold enough. Snow sounds so much better than 3 days of rain, which is more likely. Due to the colder weather, I've been throwing on as many layers as possible. Here I have on two shirts, a tribal wrap, and a peacoat. I thought the patterned wrap added some character to this otherwise mundane look.

Oscars Style

Hello hello!

Happy Monday y'all! I hope your weekend was relaxing; mine definitely was. I thoroughly enjoyed spending 4 hours in front of the TV watching the Oscars last night. I especially loved admiring all of the stunning red carpet looks on my favorite celebrities. It is indeed one of the greatest fashion nights of the year. So I thought I would share my favorites from last night...


Did you watch the Oscars last night? Which was your favorite?!

iPhone 6 Cases

Hello hello!

Guess who just upgraded her phone! Me, me, me!! You guys have no idea how thrilled I am to finally have a new phone; I was previously using a completely shattered iPhone 4 that was barely working. It was rough because pieces of the screen were actually falling off. Now I no longer have to worry about cutting my fingers when I use my phone. Yay!

The first thing on my mind after I gained possession of my phone was the phone case. The barrier that protects my new favorite gadget from my clumsiness is almost as important as the phone itself. Part of me wants a completely minimalistic case but the other part wants a fun and colorful cover with some personality. I've narrowed it down to these wonderful options that are all under 100$s (if you can call 24 options a short-list)...

Minimalistic Cases: Gold, Black, White & Clear
Fun & Colorful Cases

What do you prefer? Minimal or bright?

Reeses Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Hello hello!

Please tell me you've seen Reese's Spreads in the nut butter/jam aisle of your local grocery store?! If you haven't then I strongly recommend you search for it. I can honestly say that it rivals Nutella, and I'm a Nutella fanatic. The best way to describe it is a spreadable Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (I know, the name tells your this already)! I can just imagine the numerous combinations I will make with my spreadable Reeses. Annnnd if you're too lazy to pair your spread with something, its also tastes delicious by the spoonful; I'm guilty of doing this every once in a while!


Here's a Reese's Peanut Butter Spread and Banana Smoothie recipe I came up with...its the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. Did I mention it only has 4 ingredients? It can't get simpler than that!











Ingredients:
2 Tbsp Reese's Spreads
1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 Frozen Banana
1 tsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
**Add protein powder to make this a post-workout protein shake**

Instructions:
Add all ingredients to blender and blend on high until smooth. For a thinner smoother, add more almond milk; for a thicker smoothie, add a few cubes of ice.
