The Blues


LOFT chambray tee
LOFT curvy ankle zip skinnies
Brian Atwood flats (via Hautelook)
Lauren Merkin tote (via Hautelook)
JORD Ely maple wood watch (c/o)

Just in case you thought I was bluffing last week when I said I lurve doubled up denim! ;-)

I’m a big fan of LOFT lately; their curvy fit jeans fit me so well, and you can’t beat their basics. I signed up for emails so I get notifications of sales and promotions, and between the storewide fall sales happening lately and the occasional LOFT cash they dole out for every $50 you spend, I just keep going back (and back) for more.

All of their pieces mix so well together; it’s kind of like Garanimals for grown-ups, and I’m all about easy dressing these days.

  5. I love how you style simple pieces! I’ve bought tops and dresses at LOFT before, but never jeans. I’ll definitely check it out now, because curvy is always good!

  • 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
