I bought this striped dress & I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW UNBELIEVABLY CHIC it was in person. Likeeeeeeeee guys.
It’s the perfect summer dress. I’ll take an Instagram today to show you.
And then the white dress I’m wearing just kind of gave me the oomph to do a full post. Between the two you can’t go wrong, you know?
Also, to be dead honest, I was looking for inspiration for this post & ended up on this red vixen number ( $63 dollars!! It’s going to sell out in a minute )…& couldn’t NOT buy it for the holidays. SO, I swiftly added it to my ASOS cart & now it’s on its way to me…whoops. I’m planning on wearing black suede pumps & my hair STICK straight. MEOW.
Ok so. These babies are dresses I’d rock any day of the week, rain or shine:
Also, lately I’ve been loving navy so number 5 is pretty damn sassy too.
Anyway, I’d love to hear about your favorite summer dresses? Share some cute ones below. I like simple, fitted, not too short, but not too boring. A pop of color sometimes. Think: lady in the front, party in the back.
While looking for back to school stuff for you guys, I accidentally ( whoops ) bought this for myself. Why? Because there are a million snakeskin leather backpacks that are like thousands of dollars & I FOUND THIS ONE FOR $80. It comes in white too but I think I love it in black. Literally guys, this is a legit find…you wouldn’t believe how much designers are charging for backpacks like this one. I’ll be using this for traveling.
Uhhh because duh. Every girl needs white shoes for school or work. Kendall Jenner was caught recently rocking these white tennis shoes. They’re under $100 ( YES ). When I was in college my feet would get so damn sore because the campus was HUGE. I’m not a girl who wears heels to class, so if you’re like me, check these out. They are totally comfortable ( just got them in the mail a few days ago ) & your feet won’t get sore from walking around campus.
Ummm, get in my office. These are full-on the chicest notebooks I’ve ever seen. They’re basically like marble notebooks & I love how they have a little ribbon that holds everything in. So fun for back to school or for a workspace.
If you’re anything like I was in college ( eer, I’m still like this now too ), you like to stick with what looks good & re-wear it. I would rather have one pair of kick-ass, insane jeans that I wear five times a week than 20 pairs. If you’re more of a legging girl for class, check out these leggings…you’ll never look back. They’re great hangover pants too, lol. Anyway, back to the jeans, these ripped TopShop ones are inexpensive, durable, & make your butt look perky. YES PLZ.
I take my planner as seriously as a heart attack. It takes me like 10390258 years to pick the perfect one. It needs to be perfect. After finding this black & white striped one, I have never looked back. If you’re a worker bee, mom, or going back to school, check it out. I’M HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH IT.
& of course, don’t forget your Lisa Frank folder, Trapper Keeper, & Jan Sport. Also, pack sliced apples with raw nut butter & a multi-green Kombucha, HA. Do I sound like a mom? Happy back to school shopping!
Which can be VERY easily whipped up by YOU GUYS in 4.5 seconds.
Jam is my jam.
I LOVE it. It’s just so damn yummy on a piece of toast with a little grass-fed butter. But it’s full of weird fillers.
Don’t worry though, I gotcha covered. Check out this video:
Basically all you do is take your favorite berry ( mine’s raspberries but I also like boysenberries ), 1 to 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, & mash it together with a fork on a cutting board. Spread it on your favorite bread & you’re good to go. For a recipe without chia seeds click here.
& of course, chia seeds are full of healthy benefits: they’re filling, a total superfood, and full of calcium, potassium, iron, & protein.
I seriously make this recipe at least four times a week. & honestly? This jam is ideal for anyone’s who’s always running out the door like a freaking psycho every morning. AKA me.
Sometime I add a pinch of stevia or a squeeze of lemon too.
Ultimately, the goal of The Skinny Confidential is to make things simple for busy people who want to live a balanced life. And this recipe is SO simple!! It’s one that will work EVERYDAY.
Because sorry I’m not sorry, that I don’t have time to make handmade perserves like Suzy f-ing Homemaker.
Try this & let me know your thoughts! Happy Thursday, x.
Seriously though, I have three pairs & wear them ALL the time.
(( First things first, little disclaimer: as posted last week, this is a new series I’ve started to showcase my favorite…everything. These aren’t sponsored posts…just some real deal realness. If you want to know a specific product fav, let me know below & I’ll make it happen )).
Ok so back to biz: these jeans…are well, phenomenal.
They’re perfect for a day super profesh day at the office, a night out on the town, &/or lounging around the house.
These aren’t the type of jeans that you want to unbutton when you’re in the car because they’re so damn uncomfortable. No, no the material is like stretchy butter ( if that were a thing? ). So not only are these babies the most flattering jeans ever, they’re superrrrr comfortable. Literally so comfortable you could practically workout in them.
Uhhhhh…so do you blame me for buying three pairs? Plus they’re a measly $59 bucks ( not that $59 bucks is measly, but seriously in this day & age, for jeans it’s kinda a steal…right?! ). I’m not interested in owning a bunch of $300 dollar jeans— because honestly jean trends come & go.
& let’s be real: jeans are hard to find. So when I find a pair I love, I freak out gnarlier than Oprah’s audience during Christmastime.
Anyway I’ve worn these black dimes for three years (!!!). THREE.whole.years— same pair. These jeans have obviously seen some shit ( kind of like The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants but without the sisterhood stuff ). They’ve been everywhere!
Oh, & the best part? If you get these jeans & they don’t fit you like a freaking glove, have them altered. For some reason these particular black skinny jeans are a dream to alter!!! The material just melts to your bod.
Note: they’re kind of high waisted ( which I personally love ).
What’s your favorite pair of black skinnies? Do tell.
Here’s how I rocked these jeans for a business casual Monday:
