Casual Spring Look

The weather has been so up and down lately its hard to know what to wear when heading out. I usually bring some kind of jacket since I'm always freezing, even when its 70 degrees! This camo one is my favorite since its light weight and it can pretty much be paired with any outfit! I recently got these sandals from French Connection and can already tell I will be living in them this summer. They're super comfortable and I love the warm grey color, they also come in black & white - swoon! I've been so busy lately washing my hair just hasn't been a priority, it's more of a chore..you know what I'm sayin? Hats and dry shampoo are just so much easier:) Have a great day hump day loves! xo

It's perfect for dinner parties, dates or a night out with the girls! I paired it with these killer Jeffrey Campbell heels and my Gigi New York uber clutch for a Saturday night out!

Fit Friday (and 3 quick + delicious salad recipes)

Happy Friday babes! As I mentioned on Wednesday, I'm prepping for a major health makeover - aka the Isagenix 30-day cleanse. I've never done a "cleanse" before, but this one seems realistic (nothing too crazy, you are allowed to eat regular food), their products are organic, and I have personal friends who've had great success, and continue to use the Isagenix products in their everyday lives. I'll be documenting the process, and would be more than happy to share it if you ladies are interested - please let me know! 
I've been super into making salads lately, and have three recipes you need to try. I was never all that crazy about home-made salads until I actually took the time to put a decent plate of greens together. Each of these only takes about 5 minutes to make (I had the couscous and chicken pre-made), and I promise you won't be disappointed! 

Mediterranean Chopped Salad With Couscous 
Ingredients: 
spinach - about 2 cups, chopped 
cherry tomatoes - handful, chopped 
cucumber - 1 cup, chopped 
feta - 1 tablespoon
kalamata olives - 1/4 cup, chopped 
couscous - 1/2 cup (I purchased the box mix, which only takes 5 minutes to make) 
salt + pepper to taste 

Dressing: 
olive oil - about 1 tablespoon (or less)
fresh squeezed lemon juice - 1/2 lemon
red wine vinegar - 1 tablespoon 

Fruit + Spinach Salad 
Ingredients: 
spinach - about 2 cups, chopped 
grapes - handful, chopped 
1 apple, chopped 
feta - 1 tablespoon
dried cherries/pomegranate/craisins - 2 tablespoons 
pine nuts - 1 tablespoon (or less) 
salt + pepper to taste 

Dressing: 
olive oil - about 1 tablespoon (or less)
fresh squeezed lemon juice - 1/2 lemon
red wine vinegar - 1 tablespoon 

Chicken + Tomato + Avocado Salad 
Ingredients: 
spinach - about 2 cups, chopped 
cherry tomatoes - handful, chopped 
1/2 avocado - cubed 
feta - 1 tablespoon
pine nuts - 1 tablespoon (or less) 
1/2 chicken breast - chopped 
salt + pepper to taste 

Dressing: 
olive oil - about 1 tablespoon (or less)
fresh squeezed lemon juice - 1/2 lemon
red wine vinegar - 1 tablespoon 

I hope you will take the time to try one of these salads (I promise they are delicious!). I have to say the Mediterranean chopped is my favorite - I'd like to add chicken to it next time. In addition to my 30-day cleanse, I'll be continuing my workouts...and had to share a few Pins that keep me motivated ;). Have a great weekend loves - we wish we were heading to Coachella ... anyone else feel the same?  



Maxi Weather

Hi babes! The weather this week has been on point and I've been taking full advantage! Maxi dresses are one of my warm weather favorites - they are so comfortable and easy to wear! This one is a favorite of mine, its simple and I love the ruffles and low-cut back. It looks great alone but I wore this necklace with it for a little flare! I couldn't find any similar dresses online (I bought it a couple years ago) but I did find about 10 more I need want in my closet!

Quilted Leather

Happy hump day loves! Hope your week is going well - I'm gearing up for a major health makeover next week (more on that to come), so I'm taking things easy this week (I went to Crumbs yesterday - it was delicious). I wore this look last weekend - the weather has been so up and down in NYC lately, and it was very chilly (and windy!) Sunday morning so I opted for these quilted leather boots and a blazer. I'm so in love with these boots - they remind me of the Givenchy version, with a much lower price tag, I'm so happy with them! This blazer was a steal from F21, and it has such a great fit - I don't wear blazers that often, so I definitely didn't want to spend too much. I'm off to breakfast with a friend, have a fab day!

Spicin' It Up


I'm sure most of you have noticed from my recent Instagram pictures, I am obsessed with my Sam Edelman boots. They can change the look of any outfit - they definitely spiced up these jean shorts and sweater! The shorts are from Urban Outfitters and sweater is from Topshop (and on sale!). One of my favorite items for summer is distressed denim, these and these are on my wishlist. I'm especially loving the bermuda shorts, or as I like to call them, 'man repellers' ;) Hope you love bugs are all having an amazing week so far! xx
