Paisley Pants

Paisley Pants I’ve been gravitating towards light, chic pants like this for summer days and nights.  These pants are even more GORGEOUS in person and feel like silk.  They’re the perfect shade of navy blue, and have such a pretty paisley print on the bottom.  They run true to size (wearing a small here.)  The waistband is elastic making them easy to throw on and move around in.  I didn’t have to hem the bottom (I’m a little over 5’6”) and usually pair them with a gold or tan strappy sandal.  They would also look great with a heel or wedge especially if you’re under 5’6”! Paisley Jumpsuit Can we talk about how cute the jumpsuit version is?!  It just got marked on sale for under $18!  Both paisley printed pieces are from the Scoop collection at Walmart Fashion.  I own several pieces from the Scoop collection at Walmart Fashion and love that they’re all flattering and don’t get super wrinkled (yay for low maintenance clothing!) Easy Button Down This short sleeve button down is from the Time and Tru collection at Walmart Fashion.  You may remember the white dress I wore a few weeks ago was from there.  I honestly really love this collection – it’s full of great basics to round out your wardrobe.  This boyfriend T-shirt with a pocket is so cute and under $10 and this short sleeve henley is still a favorite of mine.

White Dresses + Jumpsuits For Spring

White Dresses + Jumpsuits For Spring I love a crisp white dress or jumpsuit for hot spring/summer days. There are so many great pieces on sale right now, so I wanted to share the select few that really stood out to me! I broke them up by casual dresses, cocktail dresses, and white jumpsuits. Casual White Dresses For Spring One of the easiest pieces to throw on for spring or summer is a LWD. Reformation makes the most gorgeous white dresses. They tend to sell out really fast, so if you see a dress you like, jump on it – seriously!!! I am loving this one (so classic and easy), this long sleeve one (just ordered), this dainty eyelet/lace one, and this one (the details on it are too good.) In terms of dresses from other brands…I really like the cut on this dress and it’s super reasonable, this dress would be great belted, I can see myself living in this easy linen shirtdress, LOVE this organic looking apron dress, and this is such a pretty strapless dress for the beach. !function(d,s,id){ var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? 'http' : 'https'; if(!d.getElementById(id)) { e = d.createElement(s); e.id = id; e.src = p + '://widgets.rewardstyle.com/js/shopthepost.js'; d.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.__stp === 'object') if(d.readyState === 'complete') { window.__stp.init(); } }(document, 'script', 'shopthepost-script'); Cocktail White Dresses For Spring This dress was one of the most popular dresses I’ve ever worn. I got so many questions about it! I also love that it’s fitted, hugs all of the right places, and isn’t see through. It would be perfect for a night out, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, bridal luncheon, etc. It’s soooo elegant and under $300. This dress is beautiful on and I wore it on my last trip to Miami – it’s one that can definitely be dressed up or down, I actually wore it with flats in Miami. You can’t go wrong with a white blazer dress, and this long sleeve Alexis dress is dreamy. !function(d,s,id){ var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? 'http' : 'https'; if(!d.getElementById(id)) { e = d.createElement(s); e.id = id; e.src = p + '://widgets.rewardstyle.com/js/shopthepost.js'; d.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.__stp === 'object') if(d.readyState === 'complete') { window.__stp.init(); } }(document, 'script', 'shopthepost-script'); White Jumpsuits For Spring A white jumpsuit is timeless. You can also wear a white T-shirt underneath it – this one would look great styled that way, or alone – I love the cut out detail on this one. There are only a few of this one left in stock and this strapless one looks so comfy.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been baking wayyy more than usual and I’m not mad about it. Today I wanted to share the absolute BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe ever with you! I found this recipe years ago when I was living in LA, and have never looked back. It’s the only chocolate chip cookie recipe I’ll ever make! BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe1 cup unsalted butter softened (2 sticks)1 cup white sugar1 cup brown sugar (dark or light doesn’t make a difference)2 eggs2 tsp vanilla extract1 tsp baking soda2 tsp hot water1/4 tsp salt3 cups all purpose flour2 cups chocolate chips FYI this makes A LOT of cookies, so I often halve the recipe. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg one by one, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water and add to the batter. Stir in the salt, flour, and chocolate chips. (I like to make my own chocolate chips and cut my favorite chocolate bars into big chunky pieces!) Scoop spoonfuls onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy! Cozy Outfit At HomeRemind me never to wear white again while baking with chocolate? LOL Luckily my pants made it out unscathed!!! Anyways, I’ve been living in sweatpants, so I thought I’d put on real pants for a few hours and it honestly felt so good. I felt more put together, but still comfortable. These white denim jeans from Walmart’s Fashion section have so much stretch to them and run true to size. I paired them with my favorite henley also from Walmart (they really do have the best basics!) I’m wearing a size small here. I love pairing a simple cardigan over a plain white T, and can’t say enough good things about this one. I own it in grey, black, and this taupe color. I’m also eyeing this pretty knit one for spring and summer. I love the look of a light knit over a white sundress. A few other pieces I love from Walmart’s Fashion section are this classic tote (I bought it for my sister’s bachelorette party over the summer and have gotten so much use out of it), these terry joggers, this casual hoodie, and these gorgeous gold lace up sandals. I also have my eye on this light blue floral dress and this fun denim jumpsuit.
