    Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

    Okay, I know it’s not exactly soup weather here with it being in the 90s and forecasted to reach 100 this weekend, but if you’re in the mood for comfort food then this soup is for you! Years ago, my favorite soup at Panera was the Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup and I would order it every time I went. And then, of course, they took it off the menu. Didn’t they know it was my favorite item on the menu?! Anyway, I found a copycat recipe that tastes really good so I thought I would share it on here. I basically followed the recipe linked above, but the only changes…

    Red Floral Romper

    We’re at the height of the summer so there won’t be a slowing down of the florals and rompers for me anytime soon. But, let’s be real – I’m all about the floral prints all year long and not just in the summer. I mentioned the other day (either on here or on Instagram – or both) that I’ve been wearing more linen than usual lately and this romper is also linen. What drew me to it was it’s bright colors and floral design. The crossover design in the back is a nice touch and I love the neckline and length of the shorts. All around it’s a winner for…

    Pineapple Envelope Purse

    I love cute summer prints as you can tell from the popsicle tee I shared yesterday. Today I’m sharing pineapple print! I got this cute little foldover envelope purse with pineapple print last summer, but didn’t have a chance to show it off on here. Overalls: Kohl’s | Top: American Eagle | Purse: Avenue Be | Shoes: DSW The purse is small, but the perfect size for a small summer bag to take out for lunch or dinner. The zip at the foldover portion offers extra space and I love the delicate gold chain and gold detailing. I paired the purse with my acid wash shortalls and off the shoulder…

    Popsicle Sequin Tee

    How was your weekend? I went to see Spiderman: Far From Home on Friday night and I liked it. I thought it was an inventive approach to a villain when it comes to these superhero movies. I wore this tee to the movies because I like being comfortable at the movies and this tee is so casual and fun for summer. The popsicles have sequin detailing and it says “Stick Together” on the tee. For these photos I wore the tee with denim shorts, but to the movies I wore distressed jeggings so I’ve included a few mirror selfies of that outfit. Tee: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s | Jeggings:…

    Book Review: Hope and Other Superpowers

    In general I’m not a big fan of self-help type books. Memoirs, true stories, etc. I’m good with, but I don’t generally lean towards books that are meant to help me be the best version of myself or whatever. It’s not that I don’t believe in them, it’s just that with the time I do have to read I’d rather be entertained than work on self-reflection. But, when I was asked if I wanted to read John Pavlovitz’s book Hope and Other Superpowers: A Life-Affirming, Love-Defending, Butt-Kicking, World-Saving Manifesto I was intrigued. John Pavlovitz is a writer, blogger, activist, and pastor. I’m not particularly religious so I was also wary that…

    Green Asymmetrical Button Dress

    Remember when I wrote about my red short sleeve dress with asymmetrical buttons and how I loved the trend? I think I mentioned in that post that I had a spaghetti strap green dress with the same button style and today is the day that I’m sharing it! This green linen dress is perfect for summer and can easily be dressed up or down. The long dress has a front, off-center slit and spaghetti straps. I wore it with fringe flat sandals but you could dress it up with wedges or heels or dress it down with sandals, slip ons, or if you’re really stylish then even white sneakers. Dress:…

    Basta Pasta

    Happy Friday! I hope your week has been good so far. It’s been another busy week for me. Lots going on, people to see and hang out with, work to do, and a beach photoshoot with Lauren (which turned out great by the way!) but it’s been a pretty good week! Today I’ve got more work to do and some chores to do, but I’m hopefully seeing Spiderman: Far From home tonight so I’ll let you know what I think! If you remember, I recently wrote about my time at the book launch party for Spin the Dawn in the city. After the event, I went to dinner at Basta Pasta.…

  • Plane Window View

    #fbf Plane Views

    I love photos from plane windows. They rarely come out bad unless the wing of the plane is blocking a gorgeous part of the view or you get your reflection in the window. But oftentimes, you get really good photos. I thought I would do a Flashback Friday, #fbf, post highlighting this photo I took on my way home from Toronto back in May. I love this photo because of all the green hills and the windy river cutting through. Most of all I love how the clouds are just dappled over the landscape. Like someone just sprinkled dollops of clouds overhead. I don’t know where this photo was as…
