Fall is the best season for prolonging those summer staples you just don’t want to say good-bye to yet, and this weekend was quite possibly the most beautiful end of summer send-off (I know it’s already fall but it felt like summer!). I try to keep my denim shorts out as long as possible (I’m too old for the denim shorts and tights trick come late fall). I’ve being seeing a lot of denim on denim this season, which I love, but it can also be tricky to pull off, so I layered this look with a light gray sweater to break it up a little bit. I’ve been on quite the hat kick lately and I was a little intimated by this big floppy hat because I was afraid it would be too much, but I think it works with this outfit (and it’s under $30!). And can we talk about these boots from Talbots?! They are SO comfortable and stylish. I had a hard time deciding between the black and the brown but ultimately went with black because I didn’t have any other pairs that were similar. The leather is really soft and I don’t often wear shoes or boots without a heel but these are so chic and easy to wear with any outfit they’ll definitely be on rotation in my fall wardrobe. Hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for the week ahead! Stay tuned for lots of fun fall content this week. xx

SOCIAL MEDIA “SELFIE” CHALLENGE

photo 1

I’ll be the first to admit that I am lost without my phone, and I’m willing to admit it. I’m constantly texting, Instagraming, Tweeting, Pinning, taking photos. I get that sinking, sick almost going to barf feeling when I can’t find my phone in my bag or my car, even though I know it’s in there. So I was intrigued when PopSugar asked me if I’d be interested in doing a social media cleanse, and then sharing my experience with all of you. I’ll admit I was a teeny bit terrified, I mean my phone is my lifeline. I often find myself saying, “what did we do before cell phones?” But I’m also constantly trying to find ways to live in the moment, take a step back and appreciate what’s around me, and in ABC’s new comedy, Selfie, the main character, Eliza Dooley is trying to do the same. We could all benefit from a day of living in the moment and taking our heads out of our…cloud.

So last Saturday, I did just that, I turned off my phone (ok I put it on Airplane mode) and lived in the moment, and it couldn’t have been the more perfect time. Last Saturday my cousin got married. I was a bridesmaid along with my two other cousins. We grew up together, and this was the first cousin wedding, so it was a big deal. I had to use my phone in the morning to coordinate some timing, but once I got to my Aunt’s house to get ready, the phone was off. It was really a lot easier than I thought. Yes I was definitely tempted to check Instagram, my email, and to see if anyone had texted me but I felt liberated too. It was so nice to enjoy being with my cousins and my Aunts, getting ready for the wedding, chatting, doing our hair and makeup and just enjoying each other’s company. It was such a beautiful day and we sat outside, drank wine and talked while we got ready. I think many of us can admit that like Eliza, the main character in the show Selfie, we are social media addicts, spending more time checking our Instagram feed or Facebook status than living in the moment and enjoying what’s around us. And even though I went without a phone for one day, I felt a greater appreciation for the people around me, and thankful that I got to experience my cousin’s wedding uninterrupted by email or Facebook notifications. What do you guys think? Are you up for the Selfie challenge? I encourage you to try, even for an hour, and see how you feel, and what you discover! Find out how to watch the new ABC show, Selfie, below.

BERRY MANGO SMOOTHIE RECIPE FOR BETTER SKIN AND HEALTH

IMG_1064

SHOP THE POST

 

Fall is the season of changing leaves, football, cozy knits and comfort food. As the seasons change though our skin can go haywire and our immune systems are compromised. This super quick and easy smoothie recipe is packed with nutrients and is a great on the go breakfast or snack. Blueberries and strawberries are loaded with antioxidants, fiber and Vitamin C, while mangos can help clear skin and lower cholesterol. Bananas contain fiber, potassium, vitamin C and B6 all of which support heart health. Chia seeds which are naturally gluten free are high in important nutrients for better bone health, like calcium and manganese, and are high in antioxidants. They also are loaded with fiber and protein which can aid healthy weight loss. The granola is also a great source of fiber, minerals and healthy fats. For those of you that can’t eat gluten, you can skip the granola or use a gluten free option. This smoothie takes about 5 minutes to make and is great for an easy breakfast on the go. Put it in a ball jar, throw on the lid and you can take it with you on your commute to work or if you’re running errands during the day and need a quick and healthy snack! 

INGREDIENTS

Frozen blueberries, strawberries and mangos

1 ripe banana

Yogurt (I love Siggi’s because it’s not loaded with sugar, but any greek yogurt is great)

Fresh orange juice (for store bought get it with Vitamin D added)

Chia seeds (about a tablespoon or less)

Granola

DIRECTIONS

Combine frozen fruit, banana, yogurt, orange juice, and chia seeds in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour smoothie in glass and top with granola. Stir granola into smoothie and enjoy!

For our sushi date night I wanted to be comfortable and casual but also feel chic. Lately I have been living in boyfriend jeans (as seen here and here) and I particularly love this pair from Paige, the leather trim is such a cool detail. To elevate the look I wore these Snake print heels from Sole Society (on sale for under $30!) which are so insanely comfortable I almost can’t believe it every time I throw them on. It’s the perfect type of weather for light layers, so this quilted vest is great for slightly cooler nights, and even better layered under a sweater or jacket later in the season. This is a great example of subtle easy print mixing too, with the colors in the blouse and heels complimenting the leather trim detail on the jeans nicely. This week really flew by and I’m excited to finally have a weekend with no plans! Tomorrow I’ll be sending out the first edition of the Prosecco & Plaid newsletter! So if you’re not signed up make sure you do so here.

Ankle boots are an absolute standard in my wardrobe, and one of my favorite things about fall is wearing them practically every day. I love these Ariat boots from their Fall 2014 collection because they’re a combination of city chic and classic country, and they are super comfortable. I’ve started quite the collection of Ariat boots (see how I styled another pair here and here) and they have become a reliable source of comfortable and classic boots that are stylish and great quality. Not many boots are comfortable enough to wear them all day right out of the box, but that’s what I did with these and they were awesome all day long. For an easy, chic look I paired them with skinny jeans, a leopard coat and piled on the jewels, but they will be so cute with a flowy dress and oversized sweater too. And lucky for you, Ariat is giving away four $250 gift cards so make sure you enter below!

I’m pretty exited about these Sole Society boots for fall. The neutral gray goes with everything and they are super comfortable. This is a great run around town outfit because it’s comfortable and chic for fall (and my Brahmin All Day Tote fits everything and then some!). And this wool bomber jacket I found a few years ago at a thrift store is such a great jacket for this season because it’s easy to layer and warm. All of a sudden it’s getting chilly and I’ve noticed the leaves just starting to turn this week. Perfect time for apple picking and pumpkin pie making! Stay tuned for some fun new things coming to P&P including some really easy and yummy fall recipes! xx
