Hey all! Long time no talk, I know! Life can get pretty hectic, and with graduating from college and getting my applications ready for grad school, hectic has been an understatement. But I am back and so ready to throw myself back into my blog. Today I wanted to show you this soft and pretty little dress that I recently picked up at a local boutique. It is one of those pieces I always gravitate towards because it is just EASY. I love how it can totally stand alone with minimal accessories, or can be really spiced up into fall with a leather jacket. But right now, I’m enjoying keeping it light and fresh for summer(: Hope you all enjoy this one!

Delectable & Dairy-Free: My Favorite Protein Packed Shake

protein

Hey all!! Today I want to share with you all my favorite quick breakfast that is not only delicious, but also packed with protein and dairy-free. I have never really been a breakfast person, and as of late, I have been dealing with some pretty aggressive food sensitivities, especially when it comes to dairy. So, when I came across No Udder Protein I was super excited because I love having a shake in the morning for breakfast, but their are very few dairy-free protein powders out there that also taste good. This protein is super yummy (I love the chocolate flavor!), blends very easily, keeps me full, and most importantly, doesn’t upset my stomach. I also feel good drinking this protein because I know zero animal cruelty was involved in my breakfast – it’s an overall win-win. I’ve left a recipe down below for my favorite shake using No Udder Protein that I always seem to crave in the morning. I hope you try it out and love it just as much as I do.

 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Shake:

2-3 scoops of No Udder Protein Powder

1 ripe banana

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1/4 cup oats

2 tablespoons powdered peanut butter

1 cup non-dairy milk (I use almond milk)

4-5 ice cubes

 

Combine all ingredients in a blender & blend until smooth! You can add more ice or milk to adjust the thickness to your liking. Enjoy!

Hey everyone! So I don’t know if you’re like me, but being fully dressed up for everyday is just not my cup of tea, however, sometimes I need to look a little more put together especially if I have a some meetings to get to. My go-to for days like this is some great denim, a more conservative top, and some cool shoes (in this instance, booties!) Keep it effortless and you’ll always end up looking put together but still like, well, you.

Hey all! So I don’t think it’s a secret that I prefer to wear men’s clothing over women’s half the time. Actually, it’s definitely accurate to say that I go shopping for clothes in my Dad and Brother’s closets more than I hit up the shops (sorry not sorry.) I’ve been bringing back some of my men’s half-zip sweaters that I used to be obsessed with into my everyday attire lately and I have really been enjoying them again. Although they can be a bit preppy for my taste on their own, adding a cool men’s button up or a flannel over top makes it feel a little more relaxed and interesting. Don’t be afraid to turn to the men in your life for some style support – you’d be surprised at the finds you can dig up in their wardrobe!

Hey guys! So I am beyond ready for Spring; to the point where I want to wear dresses everyday and don’t care if I freeze in the lingering winter weather. I have been shopping around a lot lately looking for some new fun staples for the (hopefully!) upcoming warm weather. Here are some things on my wish list that I hope to have in my closet very soon!

Hello hello! I’m not sure if it’s because I am SO beyond over winter & possibly moving out to LA in 3 months (more on that to follow!) but I have been pulling out my anorak jackets to layer over my sweaters and flannels far more than I have been wearing my heavier jackets. I love a good anorak because a) it is super easy and lightweight, and b) I don’t feel like a marshmallow when I’m wearing them haha. They’re the perfect piece to layer with because they’re usually pretty thin so they add some interest without the bulk. Also, really loving ombre lately and that, again, could be me hoping for warmer months to be here! This sweater has probably been worn more than I’d like to admit since I got it, but I can’t resist! Hope you all enjoy this one!
