Floral Off the Shoulder

Happy Monday! Hope you’ve had a great weekend. I’m currently in vacation planning mode for my upcoming trip to Riviera Maya. Technically, the trip is for a work conference, but since it’s in Mexico it’s essentially a vacation…right? I haven’t been to the beach since spring break, so I’m looking forward to some sun and relaxation. This top is definitely coming with me for our more casual events. The off the shoulder silhouette along with the floral print scream summer fun. Packing for this trip is going to be interesting; we need casual, business casual and formal attire throughout the…

20 Summer Watermelon Recipes

My mom gifted me with a watermelon today(she doesn’t think I eat enough fruit), so I’ve been brainstorming summer melon recipes that are outside the box. Since watermelon is a prime summertime crop, I’m sure it’s plentiful wherever you are and I hope this inspires you to create something different! Yes, I know watermelon tastes amazing on its own, but taking the fruit to another level is always more entertaining in my opinion. Fortunately, watermelon is James’s favorite fruit, so the more melon-y products the better! I found tons of awesome options (mostly desserts) and thought I would share my favorites,…

Teal, White and Blush

Happy Wednesday! Cotton candy came to mind when I was putting together this look. Pastel colors are a classic staple that is so fun and feminine. Although they are mostly pulled out in the spring season, pastels can be worn year round and can easily be substituted for neutrals making them extra versatile.  Wearing two different soft hues together is a little unorthodox, but the pale shades complemented each other well and don’t get too overpowering.  Top- Banana Republic Factory, similar, similar :: Shorts- Vineyard Vines :: Shoes- Jack Rogers :: Bag- Tory Burch :: Necklace- Similar, Similar :: Sunnies- Illesteva  My favorite…

Since I’m starting to feel more like myself, I was in a very PINK mood. I had to pull out my favorite shift dress to brighten up my day.

These golden Jack Rogers Luccia Wedges pair perfectly with this dress.…

Thai Green Curry with Tofu

Hello hello! Happy Thursday ladies! Hope your week has been great so far! My parent’s vegetable garden has been booming this season, so I’ve been enjoying tons of freshly grown vegetables and herbs. Since veggies are plentiful, I have tried testing out tons of recipes that feature the garden treasures. James and I try to eat fairly healthy throughout the week, so the organic fares are much appreciated. #thanksmom This Thai Green Curry with Tofu features garden fresh bell peppers, tomatoes, chili peppers, basil and lemongrass. A full recipe follows the pictures. I honestly feel that the garden veggies taste substantially better than grocery…
