No Where To Go

And here we gooooo day 9 at home! Another day another dollar sweat suit. This hoodie and sweatpants  by Les Tiens, are some of my favorites. They remind me of your boyfriends favorite university logo set; that perfect heavyweight cotton that just gets better with age. Although these aren’t the most flattering set ever…they just might be the comfiest. Scroll through to see how I’ve been wearing these at home. 

Tip if you do buy this brand I’d consider sizing down if you want a slimmer (aka more flattering) fit. I’m wearing size small in both the hoodie and the sweatpants and probably would’ve gotten a size xs in the pants so I didn’t look like Billie Eilish 🤷

Spring Refresh

Oh hiiiiiii. It’s been a minute few years, lol. Well, with the quarantine and all, what better time to bring the ol’ blog back? This time around, I’m going to mix in some of my fun styling work for trend/shopping-focused stories before I force my instagram husband out of retirement. 🤣 First up is this super pop-y spring story Nicholas and I shot in NYC before the holidays. Although my personal closet is still 50 shades of black, I have been venturing out of my comfort zone with colors/prints and I actually like it??! Who have I become?!

I love mixing bright fuchsia with more subdued yellow and cream. I will say pink has become one of my favorite colors to style. It’s such a flattering color on every skin tone. This sunset-y printed tee is the perfect spring essential because you can totally use it as a base layer for tons of looks. Here I dressed it up with a pair of amazing Marni trousers and this yellow Rag & Bone blazer. For the other look I stayed monochromatic for maximum edgy barbie vibes. I paired a sheer fuchsia blouse with this amazing pink Marc Jacobs leather jacket (which I can’t find anywhere online 💔) that I really regret not keeping for my personal closet. Obviously dressing head to toe spring explosion isn’t for everyone, but you can totally mix these types of pieces and colors with your favorite denim, leather, or whites. If that’s still too much, ease in with a pop color accessory and go from there 😜 xo! PS, I forgot how much fun I used to have with this blog thang. Now let’s see if I can keep it up haha

Make This Warm Huckleberry Galette

Where we live it is Huckleberry season, which means these sweet little berries are now available at Albertson’s on Broadway, who I have been working with on several tasty projects this summer. Huckleberries look quite similar to blueberries but their taste is more intense with more juice which makes these intensely delicious once baked as the juices release and mix with he sugar/flour mixture to make a syrup.
This is another simple and quick recipe that appears and tastes more labor intensive than it actually is! Check out the recipe below.


Ingredients:

pie crust (make your own or purchase one ready-made)
fresh Huckleberries, about 5 oz
3 fresh figs
2 tlb flour
2 tlb light brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
pinch of salt
zest from 1/2 lemon
1 egg, beaten
coarse sugar or honey for garnish

Directions:

Roll out your pie dough into a circle, approx 12″ wide. Rinse your Huckleberries and figs and drain. Mix your sugar, flour and spices together and gently toss your fresh berries in them. Now fill the center of your crust with the dusted berries and then top with quartered figs and lemon zest, being careful to leave about 1 1/2″ of dough to folding over the edges. Pleat your edges as you fold them up, brush edges with the beaten egg and then sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake at 350ºF/176 C for 40 minutes. Once galette is removed a cooled slightly you can drizzle it with a bit of honey. Serve with fresh vanilla ice cream or mascarpone cheese!
