On Trend: Summer Staples

7.1.14

Sometimes my closet overwhelms me.

It’s organized by color, style, and season with shoes in boxes and pictures of each displayed neatly on the outside.  I have my accessories accessibly hanging cleanly and my sweaters folded like a department store on the shelves (for my favorite closet organizing tips visit here). And still, I stare at a closet full of clothes and get that feeling that I have nothing to wear.

Foodie Friday: Maple and Honey Granola with Pecans, Walnuts, and Almonds

Happy Friday, all!

I know it has been a long while since I updated the blog but I came across a homemade granola recipe that is too good not to share.  It is filled with nuts, oats, and just the right amount of sweetness.  I pair it with vanilla yogurt and blueberries and it makes the most scrumptious breakfast/snack/lunch/dinner? ( I won’t judge).  So, in honor of Foodie Friday, here it is! Continue reading

Wear of the Week: White Pants and a Chunky Sweater

ImageI did it.

It was early October and overcast and was just begging to be worn: I busted out the chunky knit for the first time this season.Image

One of my most favorite things to wear, an oversized chunky sweater is classic and comforting with a hint of boho-chic.  It keeps you warm on a crisp day, is a great cover-up when you have had one too many holiday treats, and still looks effortlessly stylish.

When my mom and I saw this sweater at a quaint boutique last fall, we knew it was a must-have.  The bold colors make it a perfect match with dark denim, brown cords, and (obviously) white denim.  To add a bit of benevolence to our purchase, I bought my mom’s and she bought mine- charitable shopping at its finest.

Wear of the Week: White Pants for Fall

Image

It is the quintessential fashion question: Are white pants after Labor Day a faux pas?

The short answer is no.  The longer answer is to make sure you are pairing said white pants with other season appropriate colors to bring the ensemble together.  For example, closet the bright summer patterns in exchange for neutral hues in a darker palette as Jamie Chung, Cameron Diaz, Kristin Cavallari did above.  Use fall trends such as leather, animal print, and dark graphic tees to modernize your white pants for the season.

Check back in the rest of the week to see how I pair my white denim for fall!
