My favorite”Fall Transition” picks… Evereve edition!

Earlier this week I posted a few of my favorites from Loft. Today I’m telling you about a few of my favorite picks from Evereve.

  1. This Slit V Tee is a nice play on a basic tee.  It comes in charcoal (shown above) and olive green.
  2. This Gingersnap Sweater is so pretty!  I don’t know which I like more, the beautiful color or the fun sleeves!
  3.  This Piper Mesh V Tee is another play on a basic tee.  The mesh overlay is so pretty-this would be perfect for date night or drinks with the girls!
  4.  These Biker Skinny w/ Zippers are such a nice change from basic skinny jeans.  The zipper details are great!
  5.  This Floral Bell Sleeve Top is one of my favorites!  I love the shades of blue in this 3/4 length top and the lace up neckline is great.
  6.  This Leopard Jacquard Coat is so cute!  I own nothing like this and I love the length of it.

So there you go, a few items that caught my attention from Evereve.  If you haven’t shopped with them before I highly recommend you check them out.  They have many brands that I like and have shoes and accessories too…oh and be sure to check out there sale section too!

Have a great day!


Quick Peach Cobbler ​

I wanted to share a really quick and easy recipe I made this weekend.  I used peaches, but any fruit could be used.  Oh, and I forgot to tell you it only has 4 ingredients (I forgot to take a picture of the vanilla extract…oops!).


1 box yellow cake mix
1 29 oz. can of peaches in heavy syrup (cherries would be a good option too)
1 stick of butter, thinly sliced
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread canned peaches and syrup on the bottom of 9×13 glass baking dish. Add vanilla extract to peaches and stir. Sprinkle the cake mix over the peaches evenly. Place the thin slices of butter evenly over the top of the cake mix. Bake for 45-50 minutes (or until top is slightly browned). Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (the way my family likes it) or serve alone.

See I told you it was easy! I hope you enjoy this not only yummy but really simple recipe.

Have a great Monday!


Stella & Dot September new releases!

Good Morning!  For those who don’t know I started selling Stella & Dot a couple of months ago.  I thought about it for quite a while before I took the plunge and I’m happy I did.  I have had a really good, positive experience with the company and I’m totally in love with all of there jewelry, accessories and last month the launched tops and I’m loving them too!  I thought today I’d share my favorites from the September new releases.  Let me know what you think!

  1. Everett Cold Shoulder Top  I love the flattering neckline of this top and it has an exaggerated shirt tail in the back.
  2. Covet Kensington Tote This genuine leather tote with shiny gold hardware is beautiful.  It has a zip top too and a detachable strap.
  3. Avery Bell Sleeve Knit Top These bell sleeves are perfect and very on trend too.
  4. Charlotte Druzy Earrings I think druzy stones are so cool.  I love how no two are alike and they wrapped around a delicate chandelier frame.  These also come in raspberry and pale blue (shown in emerald).
  5. Philippa Bracelet I love the vintage gold finish this bracelet has and I think it could be a great piece to go with just about everything.
  6. Reversible Infinity Scarf This is the perfect piece to throw on and look put together instantly!  It has two different neutral leopard prints that would work with a lot of the colors in my wardrobe.
  7. Roz One Shoulder Top This top is just beautiful in this gorgeous shade of burgundy.  Not only could you wear it with jeans, I think it would be perfect for holiday parties with a black skirt too.  Very versatile!
  8. Covet Sunday Bag This bag can be worn cross body or over the shoulder and looks beautiful in olive suede with silver hardware.  This bag also come in burgundy suede and saddle leather too!

Ok so those are my picks from the just released September collection!  It was really hard to narrow it down to just these, but I think the pieces I chose are really versatile and at good price points too.  Please let me know if you have any questions about any of these or any other item from Stella & Dot.

Have a great weekend!


Roasted Asparagus


I love grilled asparagus, but I wanted to try something different so I mixed a few recipes together and came up with a recipe that goes in the oven.  It was SO good and really easy to make.  The crispy topping from the panko and parmesan was just AWESOME!  It’s all mixed in a freezer bag too so clean-up is super simple.

1 bunch of asparagus

3 cloves of garlic

1/4 tsp. pepper

1/2 tsp. salt

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1/3 c. panko breadcrumbs

1/3 c. shredded parmesan cheese

Wash and  trim asparagus. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line pan with parchment paper (highly recommend this for easy clean-up!).  Put trimmed asparagus in Ziploc bag and add remaining ingredients.  Shake bag until all of the asparagus is coated with mixture.  Empty bag onto pan and bake for 15 min.

SO that’s it-I told you it was easy!  Above is the picture of what it looked like when I took it out of the oven.  It was a hit in my house and will definitely be made again!  Let me know if you give it a try, I’d love to get your thoughts on it.

Have a great day!



My favorite “transition to Fall” picks…LOFT edition!

I woke up this morning to 60 degree temperatures and I was ready to pull out the jeans and sweaters!  I know I should wait a few weeks since the temp are bound to go back up so I thought I’d share some of my top picks from LOFT for transitioning your wardrobe to Fall.

Textured Blouson Sleeve Sweater

I LOVE that this sweater is cotton, not wool (which can make my skin itch).

Modern Frayed Cuff Jean

These jeans have a great frayed cuff hem that will go great with either flats or heels.

Sateen Utility Jacket

This jacket looks great.  I love the zipper closure and all of the great details.  This gray color is a great shade too.

Peony Ruffle Tie Neck Dress

This dress is rocking the floral trend I keep reading about.  You could pair this with either a jean jacket or sweater for those cooler evening temps.

Sleeveless Coatigan

I think this “coatigan” is a great idea for temps that seem to start cooler and rise a bit during the day.  I love how this is paired with a striped shirt and would look great with the cuffed jeans shown above.

Cold Shoulder Mixed Media Sweater

I don’t have a lot of the cold shoulder tops, but I like this one.  I think the round neck and ribbed cuffs looks really good together and navy is one of my favorite colors.


Okay, so those are a few items that caught my attention.  I’d love to know what you liked or what you found that your excited about wearing as the temps start to cool down.

Have a great day!

Happy September!

I still can’t believe today is the beginning of September!  In my world it’s the beginning of Fall which means everything apple, apple, apple!  Here are so of my favorite apple items!


  1. Bath and Body Works Farmstand Apple Wallflower  I love this scent SO much.  It’s a perfect combination of apple scents that makes me feel like I’m standing in the middle of an apple orchard.
  2. Bath and Body Works Spiced Apple Bourbon Hand Soap This soap smells amazing!

  3. Chobani Flip Apple Crisp Twist This yogurt is awesome.  It’s like eating a mini apple pie that only has 190 calories.
  4. Ketel One Vodka Apple Kicker For those who are of age to indulge in a cocktail I      would highly recommend this for a nice flavor of vodka and apple…it’s like grown up apple juice!!
