I think I deserve a cookie for making it through an entire work day without a single spot or stain on my white denim. Maybe a sugar cookie; I’d hate to ruin all this good progress with a dropped chocolate chip.

Can we talk about how much I love an easy chunky sweater? I tossed this one on this morning with hopes of a little coziness to keep me calm and relaxed today {does that work for anyone else?}. When I finished getting dressed, C was all, “Oh, you look really great today.” Apparently a good pair of white jeans doesn’t only attract stains… ;-)

    Oh, I just love and adore this outfit! The sweater is such a great way to style white pants for spring, and the necklace is soooo fabulous. I always like the bonus of a sweet hubby comment too :)

  7. LOVE the crisp jeans and chunky sweater! I really wish I hadn’t already packed up my sweaters (or grown out of them). We’ve had some cooler days when I’d really have benefitted from an easy, but classic outfit like this one!

    Haha I’m always so much more nervous when I’m wearing my white jeans too! But then I figure, I don’t normally get my blue jeans toooo dirty, so it shouldn’t really be any different, right?! I love a chunky knit too, they’re the best cold weather gear :)

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
