Chambray Culottes.

The past few months have been cold and bitter, which means that most days I could only get away with wearing jeans. Don't get me wrong, I love a good jean, but I am just so tired of wearing them day after day. I just needed some change in my wardrobe. Thank goodness J. Crew Factory came to the rescue and released these adorable chambray culottes with their new Spring collection! These tie front culottes have totally brought my wardrobe back to life! I have paired them with striped tees, button-down shirts and pretty blouses like I did here in today's post. I totally feel like a new gal in these pants! Culottes might be a little scary to those of you who are a fan of skinny jeans (like I am) but I promise you that when you slip these beauties on you will love how you look (hello there, long legs!). Go ahead and spruce up your wardrobe just in time for Spring by adding these chambray culottes to your closet... you won't regret it!

How To Make Raspberry Macarons.

A few days ago my bestie Kayleigh and I had ourselves a gals day and we made raspberry macarons with cream cheese filling! They turned out absolutely perfect- sweet, chewy, and oh so instagrammable ;) This was my fourth or so time making macarons and each time I made them I used this same shell recipe and its never failed me, so of course I wanted to share it with you! The recipe I have below is for raspberry macaron shells, but you can substitute the flavored extract for just about anything your heart desires- mint, lemon, vanilla, etc. and you can also change colors for the food coloring to match whatever flavor you choose. For these raspberry macarons, Kayleigh and I simply used this cream cheese frosting recipe to fill our shells, but you could use anything from chocolate ganache to lemon buttercream to fill them. The possibilities are endless! If you make these macarons make sure to tag me in your photos on Instagram so I can see your creations! XOXO.

Bandanas & Blooms.

I am currently obsessed with bandanas... I just think they give any outfit that certain je ne sais quoi! I pair them with dresses, sweaters and even t-shirts. (One of my favorite looks at the moment is a striped tee tucked into high waisted jeans with a bandana and a red lip. It's so simple yet so chic!) 

For a trip to the nursery this morning in search of some flowers to plant around our house for spring, I wore this super comfy striped dress with a jean jacket and my Hunter rain boots. To add a pop of color to my outfit I simply added a pink bandana around my neck and voila! I absolutely adore this look and know I will be wearing variations of it all spring and summer long.

Morning Coffee Run.

This morning my parents and I were in the mood for a little coffee and shopping so we made our way over to Lancaster to do just that! Our first stop downtown was Passenger, of course. It is no secret that this place is my favorite coffee shop around (see previous blog posts here and here) and it must be everyone else's favorite hangout spot too because there wasn't a single seat open! Because there was nowhere to sit, we just decided to order our mochas to go and then we strolled around town for a bit.

As far as my outfit went for the day I was in the mood for something that felt Parisian, so I slipped into this velvet bow tee and my favorite high rise skinny jeans with some black bow flats, my trusty trench coat and a leopard beret. Oh la la!

Styling Nike Sneakers.

For Christmas, my husband got me these adorable blush pink Nike sneakers and I have been wearing them non-stop ever since. Until these beauties, I was never really a sneaker type of gal but these pink sneaks changed my entire outlook on the whole "athleisure trend." I have styled these shoes with everything from jeans and a white tee, to dresses with a jean jacket and of course leggings and quarter zip sweatshirts. I'm telling you these go with everything!!

Yesterday was absolutely beautiful so my husband and I decided to grab some coffees and go for a leisurely walk around the neighborhood. I wore my pink sneakers with white high rise jeans, a striped tee and a jean jacket overtop and I absolutely loved the way this outfit turned out! It was casual, comfy and still cute and put together! 

Galentine's Day Treats.

Galentine's Day is all about treating yourself and your gal pals! Its about chocolate, champagne and lots of pretty pink things. I've compiled a few goodies that I think would make for the perfect gift this Galentine's Day. From rose scented candles, to a monthly panty subscription, to heart shaped sugar cookies, I've got a little something for just about every gal! How will you be celebrating Galentine's Day this year?! 

Say Goodbye To Under Eyes.

From waking up at 6 am for work day after day and the stress of everyday life, my skin had not been at its best over the past few months. I found myself caking on concealer to hide my tired eyes in the morning but even that wasn't enough to disguise my dark circles. I tried everything from getting more sleep, to drinking more water and just about every eye cream and moisturizer I could find, but still nothing would help my eyes come back to life! Talk about frustrating. 

I thought I would have to live the rest of my life with dark under eyes but then I discovered VII Code's T2 Oxygen Eye Cream and let me tell ya'll this stuff works wonders. After trying it out over the past few weeks I have found that my under eyes are less puffy and dark and my skin is incredibly soft and supple. Finally an eye cream that actually works!! I simply applied the Oxygen Eye Cream around my under eyes after cleansing in the morning and instantly my eyes would feel awake and rejuvenated. This product was easy to use and showed results quickly. If you struggle with tired eyes like I did, I would highly suggest you invest in this eye cream. Your eyes will thank you later ;)
