Boot season is almost here and the selection this year merits all the heart eyes! From rain boots, to riding boots, knit boots and short booties fall is overall the best!

Some staples that have survived multiple seasons in my closet are these riding boots (worn here), these wellies (worn here), and these UGGs for indoor wear. This year I'm especially loving these teal booties and might just have to add them to my collection. 


Following up last weeks Disney Style with well....more color! Sully is an easily lovable pixar character and his bright blue and purple hues make for an easy combo. 

Have a magical Wednesday!


Sharing what I wore on Sunday morning to walk the dogs along the beach. We had the best time at the coast this weekend and layering was a key to my outfit success with the crazy strong winds. It was such a treat to be in a place that was in the 60-70 degree range and now I seriously cant wait for colder weather to arrive full time!

Im all about bright, whimsical, and frankly ridiculous home accessories. One could go so far as to say I only like that category of home decor and boy oh boy do I have heart eyes for what I'm sharing today. 

These Throwboy emoji pillows are right up my alley and make an unexpected recent addition to my living room. With back to school season approaching, they would make a great gift for any social media oriented grads in your life. I totally wish I would have had one of these cuties in my freshman dorm room! 

Happy Tuesday Friends! I hope your day is filled with heart eye decorated texts!

I try to pack protein into my lunch while I work at my desk, but it often feels like an uphill battle. Im allergic to most protein bars (don't be fooled by the images above, my boyfriend called dibs on the peanut butter!) and protein powder has to be just right to be tasteless.  Ive been trying different nut butters as a substitution and was delighted to be introduced to the Portland based brand, Wild Friends

Im a little partial to my "hometown" but Portland has a notoriously great health food selection. These little squirrel adorned jars (so cute!!) are:

-Available in fun flavors, I mean chocolate coconut? sold!
-Fairly Inexpensive (nut butter can get costly fast!)
-Non GMO
- Peanut Free/Safe, which makes me a happy camper.
-Dairy Free
-Palm Oil Free. Which is increasingly important, palm oil can harm orangutan populations and rainforests! 

And besides all those good things, its overall delicious! I've been adding it on carrots, in smoothies, on toast, and in baked goods. I tried the honey sunflower seed butter in banana bread recipe last week and that was by far my greatest kitchen brainchild. So yum!

I used this recipe and added a half cup of nut butter into the batter.

How do you weave protein into your day?

Ive talked about this on the blog before, but 6pm is my all time favorite place to find deals on designer goods. I was browsing the Lilly Pulitzer new arrivals yesterday and while I (always) love everything, I sorta feel like the price point is right on the edge of too high for what you get. Just me? 

Anyways 6pm is not only my favorite for discounted Lilly, but a ton of other brands including: 

Very awesome and very guilt free! Have you ever scored a great item from 6pm?
