Fall Fashion

Happy Tuesday! So let's talk. Or just gawk at the new Free People October 2014 Catalog. Free People hits it out of the park with this one guys. I love their holiday catalogs! The whole look of this catalog is absolutely amazing. The styling and location paired with these killer new pieces, lands them on the top (in my opinion). There are some new and [recycled] fashion trends I'm seeing this fall: plaid is back in a big way, like this top,  jumpsuits are huge again this session, maxi skirts, and sequins- sequined skirts, and jackets. My recommendation to boost your fall wardrobe? Buy one amazing piece that can compliment and finish many other outfits you already have hanging in your closet...like splurging and buying this amazing Sequined Jacket. This jacket you could layer on top of almost anything in your fall wardrobe. The colors that keep arising for fall is that gorgeous wine color! And ofcourse military greens are a classic for fall as well. So kick back, relax, enjoy some Free People and treat yourself to a killer fall piece this season!! Shop the collection below.

Emily's Breakfast Bowl

Good morning readers. I thought I'd share a new recipe with you! Cooking and developing new things that I'm able to eat is one of my favorite things. So I want to start integrating more food and recipes to the blog. Some of you know this, but I am allergic to a lot of foods. I cannot eat gluten, dairy, or eggs...and there are some other little random things too but these are the main foods I cannot eat. So it is hard because most GF foods contain eggs, and most Vegan foods contain gluten. So it is a rare find when the food is GF and Vegan. And if I do find something like this...most of the time, it isn't too yummy. But I can say with 100% confidence that this breakfast is one of my favorite things to eat! And I'm going to share my perfected recipe with you :).

This is the breakfast of champions. In fact, I eat this breakfast every morning. It is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and Egg Free. It contains lots of protein, healthy fats, and carbs. I usually work out in the morning, so the carbs come in handy after my workout. I try to not eat too many carbs, but I can never cut out fruit. It's nature's own dessert. 

Emily's Breakfast Bowl

1 cup of frozen wild blueberries or other frozen fruit mix (raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries)

1 handful of spinach (about 2 cups)

1 banana (frozen is better)

1 tablespoon natural peanut butter

1 scoop Vegan Chocolate Protein Powder (I use Sunwarrior Brand)

1 tablespoon cocoa powder 

3-4 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla Almond Milk (add to desired texture of bowl- I usually only add enough for everything to blend, because I like a think textured bowl)

Toppings:

I usually mix these up all the time, but lately I like using a sprinkle of cranberries, walnuts, almonds, unsweetened dried whole cranberries (I get these at Trader Joes- they add a touch of tart), sliced banana, and a whisper of cocoa powder on top (to add some more rich chocolate flavor) 

Other ideas would be cocoa nibs, cashews, manuka honey, sunflower seeds, strawberries, oats, chia, flaxseed, sprinkle of instant coffee, or any other kind of cereal.

Add everything (except of course the toppings) to blender and blend. Pour into bowl :)...then add your desired toppings!

Airstream Inspiration

Hi readers... I have a bit of inspiration for you today. While "blog browsing" the other day, I stumbled across these amazing photos of Blogger, Sarah Schneider of @lovesarahschneider on the Anthropologie Blog. And I must say, her work is absolutely incredible. I am a huge of re-doing airstreams. Not obviously because I've done so many, but I'm obsessed with projects...I always thrive on having some big task that I can do. I also love making old things new again...flea marketing, garage sailing... creating. My mom and I actually redid our vintage airstream for my wedding (pics to come :)). My mom bought a vintage (from the 50s!) airstream that we gutted, buffed, and painted. We made it for guests to come in and relax. We set up a bed, bistro tables, and chairs. At the end of the wedding, we found three kids in there asleep on the bed :) haha. 

This airstream that Sarah did was loads of fun to look at to see what she differently and how she used all things Anthropologie for the decor (how could it not be a stunner, right?). I love love love the Wandering Star Pillow over the gorgeous Bells Throw. Sarah said that the Wandering Star Pillow was her inspiration for the whole airstream...the colors and the word wander. Sarah in her blog post states, that she wanted the airstream to be comfortable and inspiring. To evoke imagination, adventure, and creativity. "I wanted it to feel wild and free...a "wandering star."  

Another thing that I loved about this airsteam is her use of layering quilts! The gorgeous Rivulets Quilt she used on the love seat, with the multiple pillows (Luminous Dots Pillow- gold dots & the metallic peach pillow). And those horseshoes... my goodness...that just put me over the top :). LOVE the ranch subtitles.

Stitch & Feather

Tis the season to snuggle up, layer up, and fall up. It's time to pull out our sweaters, booties, and maroon lipsticks. It's finally starting to feel like fall. I made our first pumpkin spiced latte of the season...so I mean...come on. I'm so excited to share with you these amazing clothes from Stitch and Feather. They are this adorable boutique nestled in the cutest beach towns of all time, Seal Beach. They of course carry beautiful clothing, but also shoes, books, cards, and jewelry. They are open from 10:00-8:00 and there address is: 

127 Main Street 
Seal Beach, CA 90740

If you'd like to call and make an order on something I'm wearing today, their number is 

(562) 594-8200

I wanted to show you how you can transition some of your summer wear into fall. Like the white dress I have on is a perfect dress for a warm summer day...but to transition it into the season, I layered this grey sweater on top. This sweater, too, I love with anything. The hi-low design is right on trend and the allusion of two layers at the bottom of this sweater, makes layering even more effortless! I finished the look today with my favorite booties from Sam Edelman
