Style: Summer Blues



Dress: Old Navy // Shawl: DIY from a vintage scarf // Bag: Gap // Shoes: ? // Sunglasses: vintage // Agate Necklace: Vintage, 70's // Daisy ring: Wal Mart 

Now that summer is in full swing, I've been catching myself wearing a lot of blue and white (and gold) together. All three colors are neutrals, so they combine easily and look fresh and crisp for those hot summer days. 

This white and navy blue gingham dress from Old Navy has been a favorite of mine since I bought it three weeks ago. It's the best, lightest flowy fabric that keeps me cool while still looking great after a full day. I paired it with a big gold bag, nude heels, and a vintage agate slice necklace I inherited from my Grandmother. I'd like to think good taste is genetic! 

The best part of this outfit, though? The blue tribal print 'kimono,' that is actually a scarf worn as a kimono. I'm going to show you how to turn your own scarf into a breezy kimono wrap without sewing a stitch later this week. Be sure to check back, it's a wardrobe hack you don't want to miss!

What are your favorite color combinations for summer?

Spaghetti Squash in Creamy Cheesy Seafood Sauce Recipe

Spaghetti Squash in Creamy Cheesy Seafood Sauce Recipe

If you've been following me for a while, you know I've been a huge fan of spaghetti squash as a noodle substitute since starting to eat more paleo meals.  I'm kind of in love. Check out how well they turn into noodles:

The best thing about using this noodle substitute is that you don't get the heavy car crash after eating them. You can eat a mountain of noodles and sauce and you don't feel bloated and awful. Plus, they're delicious and really pick up the flavor of whatever you put on them! 

The recipe I'm sharing today for spaghetti squash with seafood white sauce is not strictly paleo, but it is totally healthy, low fat and low calorie, light and delicious. Perfect for a summer night!

DIY: Gold "dipped" spray painted jewelry dish (the perfect do-it-yourself gift for Her!)

DIY: Gold dipped jewelry dish (the perfect do-it-yourself gift for Her!)

You might have noticed, but I've kind of been obsessed with shiny gold things lately. 

DIY: Gold dipped jewelry dish (the perfect do-it-yourself gift for Her!)

This craft is the Mother's Day version of the DIY gold-dipped heart jewelry dish I made for Valentine's day. I loved it so much, and I still use it so often, that I decided to make a version as gifts for Mother's Day for the ladies in my life (act surprised if you get one!).

I love the mix of a modern, fun spray painted gold and the traditional design juxtaposed. I also love taking something old and ugly and making it cute. And I love gold. It's the perfect trifecta for a fun craft project! Today I'm going to show you how to make your own cute, fun and inexpensive DIY Mother's Day gifts!

DIY: Make your own breezy boho dress for summer!

DIY: Make your own boho dress for summer!

It's here you guys. Spring, and weather warm enough to wear sundresses!

Hi guys! I've been sitting on this idea for a super easy DIY sundress for about three months now, ever since I started dreaming about warmer weather. I love the new midi-length dress trend, and the boho looks I've been seeing everywhere! This dress is the perfect blend without being too "prairie."

Last year, I was lusting hard after the Selva Silk Maxi Dress at Anthropologie with it's gorgeous handkerchief hem. I found a lookalike at the thrift store, but I kept the idea for this literal scarf dress with me for the time when warmer weather was back upon us. 

This handkerchief- hem scarf dress is probably one of the easiest projects I've ever made, with the most spectacular result. It's literally made from three thrift store super lightweight scarves, around $10, 1/2 yard of 1/4 inch elastic, and 30 minutes.

That's it. 

This is my favorite kind of project, loves. The kind where I get compliments and asked where I bought my dress, and then I get to proudly tell them I made it. 

Today I'm going to show you how to make your own, because I love you all, and I want you to feel just as fabulous about making your own scarf dress. There's no way you can feel anything less then fabulous wearing this gorgeous, billowy dream!

Cook: Low(er)-fat from scratch hummus recipe

Cook: Low(er)-fat from scratch hummus recipe

Sometimes, you just gotta dip your food in something. You gotta. Sometimes just eating a carrot or chip isn't enough, it just feels incomplete. 

Cook: Low(er)-fat from scratch hummus recipe

I like dipping things in stuff, personally. I like it when my food is interactive. And though I love vegetables, they lack some luster sometimes. The problem is that most dips are just terrible for you. Ranch is amazing, but it's not healthy by any stretch! 

Today I'm sharing my favorite thing to dip other things into; home made hummus! I love hummus and it can get expensive. Making it myself at home is cheaper, healthier and lower fat. Plus, you can customize your hummus with any flavors you want!
