Must Have's

I had a meeting yesterday right next door to a strip mall and got the chance to pop into Old Navy before heading back into the office. I'm on the hunt for more work clothes and cute clothes for Paris, and this dress checks both boxes. It's fit is incredibly flattering and it's $20 dollars.

::: Patterned Pants :::
Printed pants & simple separates. I don't think I could pull this off but I like it.Patterned pants with denim shirt
I also want to get my hands on some fun, navy or black patterned pants for those boxes listed above (work and Paris)

:::Claritin D:::

AKA, speed. My allergies have been bugging me this week and I popped a 12hr Claritin and was the figgen energizer bunny all day yesterday. I'm seriously thinking about keeping a box by my desk for days I'm lacking motivation.

::: This Haircut :::
This is the exact look I'm going for. I think right before Paris I'm going to go in for a trim and color, and this is hair-do is spot on.

::: Friends With Better Lives ::: 

Did you catch this? It premiered after the HIMYM finale, and it's actually really entertaining. I have a major girl crush on Brooklyn Decker so I hope this makes it to a full season.

:::Orchids from Trader Joes:::
No joke, I bought two orchids seven weeks ago and they still look as fresh as the day I brought them home. I've been putting 1 ice cube in each pot once a week, and they're actually thriving. I read that little trick on Pintrest and I'm here to tell you it actually works. TJ's flowers are amazing.

Kale Salad with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette - Perfect as a light lunch or even a meatless Monday dinner option! 

So I made this salad (without pom seeds) and it was absolutely bomb. I added tomatoes and carrots for a little extra crunch, but the quinoa and goat cheese take this salad to a whole other level. We made it for dinner on Monday and then had left overs all weekend long. The dressing is pretty strong, so just add a teaspoon full to each bowl rather than the whole salad. 

::: This Sign :::


  1. This is so weird- I just bought a strip dress from Old Navy AND ordered their print pants! I am TOO excited to get them and try them out! I also pinned a kale salad and can't wait to try it and had my eye on a few of Trader Joes orchids! We are definitely on the same page! Have a great week love!

  2. I just put in a HUGE order from Old Navy yesterday and I was pretty devastated that the tall size of this dress sold out. I'm not that tall, but the tall sizes just fit me proportions perfectly. DAMN. But I've got at least 5 new dresses coming, so yay! They have some CUTE stuff this season, but I'm way bummed they don't have any fun spring trench coats. I was hoping for a hot pink one.

    I love patterned pants, but my thighs are just completely opposed to it.

    I love Claritin D. It's actually one of the reasons I'm NOT sad we aren't having babies anytime soon - cause you can't take it when pregnant. No clue what I'm going to do when I can't breathe.

    I DVR'd the new show after HIMYM. Catching up today!

    And that's my novel of a comment. xo

  3. I'm major crushing on Brooklyn Decker too and recorded the show! I thought it was ok. It has potential for sure. Love those printed pants. I swear you can add a chambray top with anything and it looks good. I love TS's hair cut! It would look super cute on you!
