CAUCHY PANT

Here I go again, wearing the baggiest pants I can find! Honestly, I do this for health reasons. I can't just go around wearing skinny jeans everyday! Having poor circulation to my legs is a valid concern - I mean, they're are always cold! Also, I hate seeing those lines that tight jeans leave on my skin. Oh, and I love hearing my boyfriend complain about my baggy pants and how he will never ever like them.

HEALTHY GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE


January is officially heath and wellness month. EVERYONE I know is doing some kind of diet, challenge, or cleanse - including myself. Well maybe not including myself, I've broken my cleanse several times already! Since being healthy is all the rage right now, I thought I'd share my favorite green smoothie recipe with you. I make these in large batches so I can just grab one in the morning on my way out the door.  

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 bag of spinach
  • 1 cucumber, medium chop
  • 3 celery stalks, medium chop
  • 1 pear, quartered and seeds removed
  • 1/4 bunch of cilantro
  • 3 carrots, medium chop
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 cups coconut water, you could use regular water but then your smoothie wouldn't be trendy and cool 
I start off by placing the coconut water and spinach in my Vita-Mix and blending at medium speed. Then, with the circular piece removed from the lid, I add the rest of the ingredients in one-by-one. Once everything is in, I turn the blender on high for a few minutes. This recipe makes just over four servings. I typically drink one right away and store the rest in mason jars (they'll keep for three days max). Also, drinking from a mason jar is just the cool thing to do.

LEATHER EFFECT MIDI SKIRT



I didn't think I'd be wearing pleated midi skirts until I was well into my nursing home years. Looks like I'm ahead of schedule.

OUI OUI

Michael Stars oh darling hat // Jonathan Adler oui oui silk scarf // Vintage shaggy cardigan // Dolce Vita silk button down // Mother the looker ankle fray jeans // Joe's Jeans blare boots   

My boyfriend's mother recently lent me a Herm├ęs book that shows off different ways to wear a silk scarf. Did you know there are a shit ton of creative things you can do with a silk scarf?? Not all of them are cute, and some styles you can only pull off if you're Mariah Carey in the Loverboy music video. But still, I spent a few good hours flipping through the book trying out all the different variations. I was bored, it was fun. The style I'm wearing above ended up being my favorite. I think it's very French meets Western. I call it... The 'Frestern' Method.
