Well, hello there. I’m not going to ask if you missed me or my posts, but it’s been awhile. (I missed you!) Not sure what kind of social media funk I was in, but it seems to have lifted with the crisp autumn air that’s finally arrived. Which gave me the perfect reason to pair these amazing black leather jeans (splurge alert!) with a cozy sweater and teddy coat, as well as some covetable accessories. Happy Fall, y’all!
I love shopping at Farmers Markets, don’t you? For me, that feast of colors, flavors, fruits, veggies, flowers, spices, ciders, breads (and more!) is beyond intoxicating. And inspiring. Hence my latest soup recipe.
When I’m not loving all things leopard print, I’m falling pretty hard for deep-hued florals. They still feel fresh and fun with the weather staying closer to summer temps than those of autumn, especially when they take shape in a fabulous, flutter-sleeved midi dress like this. But cooler days are definitely ahead, so I’ve been playing with how to keep these two trendy patterns going, and better yet, going together.
This black-and-white look is all about looking pulled together when you’re looking forward to some down time. Full disclosure: I shopped my closet for most of it, but that’s because by sticking to this classic palette, it was fast and easy to style old pieces into a brand new look. Sure, keep it casual. But keep it chic, too.
Greetings, fierce fashionistas. The Urban Dictionary defines this classic Yorkshire term (you go, Brits) as “Calm down!” Well, I’m feeling calm, but I’m not feeling Fall. Yet. It was 93 degrees in Jersey City yesterday! So it might just be this tropical jungle weather that’s got me feeling all tiger-y. (Yeah, not a real word, but it works.) Or, it might be WhoWhatWear x Target, the collection that’s killing it this season with all things animal print. (Excuse the non-PC pun, please.) Read on for all the details about what I’m wearing these days, especially this on-trend, tiger stripe top that’s an easy, versatile and affordable way to add this must-have print to your Fall wardrobe.
Animal prints are continuing their reign of the fashion jungle this fall. So move over, leopard. It’s tiger’s turn to make a big style statement. I’m loving the tawny tones and bold graphic impact. And this swingy, puff-sleeved dress is the perfect way to take a walk on the wild side.
It seems that as soon as we say goodbye to Labor Day, everyone is breaking out the pumpkin spice. I like pumpkin and I like spice, just not in my coffee. Or donut. Or candle. Or shower gel. I prefer to indulge my taste for this fall-ready flavor in something that’s calorie free. Like this versatile, belt-able, wearable dress!
Spoiler alert: this is not a fashion post! But we are talking Pom Poms. And if you’ve been along for the Life’s a Spritz ride, you know I’ve probably never met a Pom Pom I didn’t like. (As seen here, here, here, and here, here, here, and here.) They are cute, soft, round, and colorful. Did I say like? How about love! Keep reading if you want some ideas on how to make your life, and your look, Pom Pom-eriffic.
I Queen, you Queen, we all Queen! But for what? How about whatever your heart desires. If I put aside my To Do list for 24 hours, and crowned myself Queen for a Day, where would I start? Hmmm, it’s hard to do whatever you want to do. We’re all so programmed to do what we need to, have to, simply can’t not do. While Queen for a Day is still a work in progress, I’m pretty sure I can come up with one simple thing I really want to do each and every day. And then give myself the time and permission to do it. Baby steps, right? Or maybe a leap now and then.
Good morning, sunshine! Here’s a delicious and healthful new Smoothie recipe that I’ve worked into my breakfast rotation. If you’re new to Life’s a Spritz, you might not know that I’ve been having one Smoothie version or another for…yikes…decades. (As seen here and here.) For me, it’s the fastest, easiest, most nutritious way to get my day going. If you’re not on the Smoothie train, you just might want to hop on once you taste this one!
