Give ‘Em The Slip

August 10, 2016

Slinky slip dresses are back in a big way this season, with street style stars everywhere embracing the look. The secret this time around, is to take an irreverant approach to styling. Layer it over a tee, add a sneaker and suddenly what started out as sexy lingerie is now a fun, casual piece to wear during the day.

This blush toned slip gets toughened up when layered over a grey heathered tee shirt and topped with a chunky cardigan. Boots take the look into fall with ease.

Unrecipe of the Week: How To Pack A Mason Jar Salad

January 21, 2016

 

How-Make-Mason-Jar-SaladAhh, mason jars; Pinterest’s vessel of choice. While we are totally tired of seeing them as mugs, vases and other types of kitchsy decor, we still love them for what they were originally intended to be used for, which is hold food. They are recyclable, don’t have any BPA’s or other harmful chemicals in them, and can go into the freezer, refrigerator and microwave when the metal top is removed.
The glass jars are the perfect vehicle for storing soups and sauces, and grains. They also allow you make a salad complete with the dressing and not let it get soggy. You can actually pack a few lunches in advance, and store them in the fridge until you are ready to eat them. The trick is the order in which you layer the ingredients in the jar.

First, add the dressing. It might be a tablespoon or two, or even more, depending on how much dressing you like and how big the salad is.

Next, layer the heaviest ingredients on top of it, that will not absorb the dressing. This means items like carrots, cucumbers, celery, and beets.

Add any grains, pasta or beans on top of that.

Next up is the protein layer, containing any chicken, meat, fish, hard boiled eggs, tofu or cheese.  Don’t add these yet if the salad is going to sit for several days. We recommend adding it within 24 hours of eating for best, freshest results.

Any soft vegetables and fruits such as avocado, tomatoes, or berries go on next. Again, if you are keeping the salad for several days, add these at the last minute. Avocado or apple should be soaked in lemon juice to avoid it turning brown.

Add any nuts, croutons or seeds in the next layer, followed by a hefty helping of clean and well dried greens. Screw on the lid, pop it in the refrigerator and anticipate lunch!

Chopped Salad

When ready to eat the salad, give it a little shake and dump it into a bowl. The lettuce will be on the bottom, and the other items on top of it. The dressing will mix in as it is poured. Enjoy!

The Shirt Off Our Back

April 27, 2015

We love playing with the classics and finding new ways to style our  favorites. Reinventing the white shirt through dramatic proportions takes an old standby to a new level.

When one great shirt is not enough, try layering two! We love this crisp white tank over the superlong blue shirt.

A Lighter Shade of Pale

December 29, 2014

This season, it’s time to break the age old rule that one should not wear white after Labor Day. Layers of pale whites, greys and beiges look modern and oh-so-chic, when winterized through texture, fiber and accessories.

Go ahead and pull out your white jeans.  These ladies will show you how it’s done.

Shades of winter white layer to create a look of relaxed elegance. A textural sweater,  worn over a sheer blouse, effectively winterizes a white suit. The boiled wool coat in a slightly deeper tone adds richness and depth to the outfit.

Full cut and fluid trousers pair with a simple turtleneck for a minimalist approach to winter white dressing. Light shoes with heavy black soles and a black bag and eyewear balance the look. Bonus points for her expertly cut pale grey hair.

Skinny jeans and sneakers in pure white get the winter treatment when topped with a textural wool coat in a slightly deeper hue.

Shades of grey from icy silver to deep charcoal add dimension to this casual look. White sneakers and a black and white bag complete the illusion of effortless dressing.
