Krack Krispies


About two years ago, I stumbled upon this recipe and was inspired to make it as an Easter holiday treat for my family. They were more than a hit. Since that time, I've re-made them for birthday celebrations, parties, and holiday get-togethers alike and people are always obsessed. Hence the reason that I've re-named them krack krispies ;) The best part? They take all of 10 minutes to make . . . who's Miss Betty Crocker, now?!
 All you'll need is . . . .
Enjoy :)

Well, in typical PNW fashion- here I am dressing like it's fall. Because it feels like fall. And the rain is back. BLEH.

Built-In Beads

Top: Collective Concepts {old, via Nordstrom}; Minnie Pant: J. Crew;
Heels: Zara; Jacket: Old Navy; Bangles: J. Crew Factory, gifted

So it looks like I'm doing Beyonce's 'Single Ladies' dance in the first photo. The real reason I look like that is because these damn pants don't fit me anymore. I am both happy and depressed with this fact. Because I LOVE these pants. And I don't want to buy a new pair. But I also like having abs now. So at least there's that. Goddamn Crossfit. I need to buy all new pants. They're all saggy in the butt. YUCK. At least there's a built-in necklace on my shirt . . . that's pretty fun.

Neon Lace

Dress: Ann Taylor LOFT {no longer available, similar here}; Shoes: Christian Louboutin; 
Sunnies: Karen Walker; Earrings: J. Crew Factory {similar here}; Bangle: Alexis Bittar

I wore this shifty lace number last Saturday for my brother's graduation baccalaureate and brunch. Not only did I snag it on sale, it has proven itself worthy on more than one occasion, from walking the streets of Soho in New York to sitting in the sun in Seattle for a baby shower. And really, who can get over the subtle neon beneath the lace? Hashtag swoon. Happy Friday!

{My} Baseball Uniform

Tee: Tart {old via Nordstrom Rack}; Cutoffs: Forever 21 {old, similar here}; Anorak: Old Navy;
Hat: Lids; Sandals: Havaianas; Bag: LV; Avaitors: Ray-Ban


My boyfriend plays in a very competitive adult baseball league in the summer. Since I began dating him, I have gone to most of his games (sometimes in near snowy conditions). The home opener was last weekend and it was a surprisingly hot morning. I shed this coat a mere 15 minutes after sitting down. N's team is the Pirates (hence the hat) and I have absolutely no issues with attending his games if they keep up with this weather :) This outfit will undoubtedly become my very own "baseball uniform." GO PIRATES!

Inspo Nation: Bring It


My (not-so-little) brother is graduating from college this weekend and I feel that this photo is truly reminiscent of all that lies ahead for him. It should serve as a reminder to us all that life has so much to give, and we should be excited to embrace it. Happy Weekending!
