Post-Labor Day and the unofficial welcoming of fall has arrived. Fall is my favorite season for many reasons but two of the top can be broken down into two categories: food and fashion. Imagine that? As much as I love grilling during the summer, I am looking forward to dinners in the crockpot and oven. When it comes to baking dinner in the oven, I always try to come up with recipes that have quick bake times or are at least easy to put together. If they are quick to put together and have a longer bake time, at least you can accomplish tasks while dinner bakes. I have shared our love for Mexican food with you before but these sheet pan chicken fajitas take quick weeknight dinners to a whole new level.
Happy Labor Day, friends! I hope you all are enjoying the long holiday weekend. Just a quick post today to share a few of the Labor Day sales with you and a fun Back to School Q&A at the end. Have a great and safe rest of the holiday!

If fall is anything like this summer to fall transitioning time, my fall wardrobe is going to be pretty heavy on the sleeve show. Bell sleeves, statement sleeves, I can’t get enough! I spotted this grey bell sleeve sweater during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and knew it had to be mine. I mean, look at the sleeves!
With the start of September only two days away, I am totally in a fall state of mind. Bring on the layers, jackets and autumn colors! Whether it’s dressing casually or dressed up for work, there are certain versatile pieces in my closet that I love wearing for both, especially in the fall. Today’s post is dedicated to styling one jacket, two ways.
It’s no secret that my love for peanut butter runs pretty deep. I eat it at least once a day and I am always look for excuses to eat more. Peanut butter power bars were always my go-to snack while playing college tennis. Now, they are my favorite pre- and post-workout snack. Last weekend, my mom and I decided to remake the power bar recipe from college and switch up the ingredients. Since we lost the original recipe, it was a good excuse to create our own. As much as I loved the power bars in college, I am completely addicted to this new peanut butter power bar version.
It has been unseasonably cool here in the D.C. area the past few days. Very uncharacteristic for August, but I won’t complain! I spotted this fall floral blouse during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and loved the darker colors. This weekend’s weather presented the perfect opportunity to break out the fall colors for this summer to fall transitional look.
With summer nearing it’s end, I wanted to round-up and review some of the beauty products I have been trying out for the past few months. There are a few things that I have been absolutely loving recently and some products that have been just alright. From makeup to skincare to hair products, here is a summer beauty round-up and review!
As summer is quickly coming to an end, one of the things I will miss most about the warmer temperatures is quick weeknight dinners on the grill. The grill has become our go-to the past few months. You can’t beat how much of a time saver it is! Once a week, we reach for one of our favorite summer meals on the grill, al fresco chicken sausage. I always love coming up with new ways to serve this “better for you” sausage, but this sweet Italian style has become our favorite. Today, I am sharing the perfect quick weeknight summer dinner with al fresco.
Pattern mixing in the fall is one of my favorite things. And although it isn’t fall yet, I could not resist sharing this stripe and leopard combination with you a little early. Especially these leopard ankle booties. Of all patterns, stripes and leopard are one of the easiest to experiment with. Today is all about pattern mixing with leopard and stripes.
Yesterday’s post was all about my color crush with rust for fall. But when it comes to a basic, go-to fall color combination, I will always gravitate towards camel and black. It’s an easy combination of two colors that fill my closet and I love the contrast of the two shades. This oversized camel cardigan will be a closet staple for the entire fall season.
