Amazing-Bookends--a-DIY

My sister Carol was so inspired by Anthropologie's creative wood block bookends that she used her DIY talent to create her own version. Didn't they turn out great? Follow along for her instructions!

WHITE CUT-OFFS + GINGHAM

Red-Gingham
I hit the J. Crew men's sale hard--I stocked up on great shirts to wear with cut-offs on these 100 degree plus days. Easy breezy for summer time on the patio with a margarita.

A few months ago, Teen Vogue came over for a tour of my place. I had a blast with them here in Texas. I'm so excited the feature has gone live and I can share with you all.

CROP TOPPING

Crop Tops!

 

Crop Tops!

I do love a good crop top, and even though this American Apparel turtleneck one has become a bit ubiquitous these days I think it's still a solid look with a simple black mini. Crop tops really make me wish I was not so flat chested but what can you do. They're liberating when it is 100 degrees plus!

Skinny Antioxidant "Ice Cream"

Healthy Skinny Ice Cream

I'm here for weekend at my mom's house to unwind, and after a trip to the gym we were craving a healthy reward. With a little experimentation we came up with  a delicious treat. It has the consistency of ice cream with none of the bad stuff. Read on for our recipe!

Healthy Antioxidant Ice Cream Ingredients

THE RECIPE: Skinny Antioxidant Ice Cream
(Serves 3-4)

The insides of one ripe Haas avocado
One apple of your choice, cored and chopped
One ripe banana, peeled and in chunks
2 cups of frozen antioxidant blend fruit (strawberries, blueberries, pomegranate and cherry)
2 cups tightly packed mixture of greens (we used baby kale and spinach)
1 cup of almond milk
1 teaspoon of chia seeds
2 teaspoons hemp hearts
2/3 cup of ice cubes
1 tablespoon honey or agave (optional, only if you like it a little sweeter)

Put ingredients into blender and blend until smooth and creamy. You can add or subtract almond milk or ice cubes to get the right consistency.

Hope you are enjoying a relaxing weekend! xo

My Best Skinnies: ANINE BING

Anine Bing Jeans

There is damning evidence of my habit of uniform in this post...but its time I paid tribute to some of my favorite jeans. The Anine Bing charcoal grey skinny jean has been my go-to for about a year now. I've probably posted them fifty times. Definitely the most elongating jeans I own, the zippers make them so flattering and versatile!

WHITE SANDS

These photos were taken a few months back outside of Marfa, TX...the memory is seared into my brain. The sand was practically frozen! The morning light in West Texas was amazing. I'm dying for another trip back.

The lace top and cardigan I'm wearing here were purchased in Tokyo years ago. I believe the line is called FurFur. The skirt I'm wearing is from my mom's old clothing line Atlantis Underground. It is called the 'Russian wedding skirt', one of her best sellers.
