Happy Friday all!  Are you excited for the long weekend?  I sure am.  The Mr. and I are headed to the city for a date night and hotel stay while "Amma" watches the nuggets.  We're super excited.  Follow along on my INSTAGRAM for all the fun.

Nothing can be so classic and easy as black and white.  Even with the basics, you can add simple touches to make the look chic and modern.  Bow tie blouses are popping up this fall and I love this style.  Pair it with jeans for a dressed up casual look or with a pencil skirt for work.  I picked up this leather jacket at the #NSale.  It's now on sale for 50% off and it comes in petite :)  What works better than leopard with black and white?  This is a beautiful clutch and a beautiful price.  Check out more picks below at all price points!



Thanks for reading!  
Pop back this weekend for all the Labor Day sales.  I'll have the best picks for you!

Blackberry Shortcake

blackberry shortcake, bisquick

It's been a long time since I've shared some yummy food recipes.  Being honest there hasn't been much cooking going on in the Lulu house in the last year.  Life has been crazy with working, the Mr. changing jobs, the nuggets and their schedule - homemade meals haven't made it to the table.  Don't get me wrong, we still eat healthy options, but in a more shortcut route (organic freezer options!)  But I'm hoping to change this now with school starting, I have a bit more time.  This is an easy and delicious summer recipe with only 6 ingredients (a little help from Bisquick too :)

Ingredients:
For shortcake:

  • 2  1/3 cups of Bisquick
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 2+ cups of blackberries 

For topping:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Follow the recipe on the Bisquick box for the strawberry shortcake recipe.  Bake the cake according to the recipe instructions less 5 minutes.  While the cake is baking melt together the 1/4 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of brown sugar.  Remove the cake from the oven.  Take a fork and cave in the cake a bit so that when you pour the blackberries onto the cake they will not all fall off!  :)  Distribute the brown sugar mixture over the blackberries and cook again (at the same temperature) for 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool.  Enjoy!



Thank you for reading, have a wonderful day!

Work Wear Wednesday

jcrew plaid shirt, baublebar necklace

jcrew plaid shirt, jcrew gray wool skirt, baublebar necklace, kate spade beau bag, schutz heels

jcrew plaid shirt, jcrew gray wool skirt, baublebar necklace, kate spade beau bag, schutz heels
  J.Crew shirt (on sale!)  |  J.Crew skirt (now JCF & on sale!)  |  Schutz heels (similar)  |  Kate Spade bag (similar, loving this version)  |  Prada sunnies  |  Nordstrom earrings  |  Baublebar necklace  |  Stella & Dot bracelet |  Clinique lips "two ton tomato" & Dior gloss

Work style does not have to be all gray and black suits.  It also should not be mini skirts and low cut shirts!  Elegance, professionalism, and some trends mixed in can make a perfect work look.  This wool skirt is a beautiful piece hitting just at the knees.  With the added tuxedo stripe detail, it's also not boring.  An unexpected plaid shirt and the leopard heels (last worn here) also spices things up (appropriately!).  Some fun accessories with this Baublebar necklace finishes the look.

Do you stick to the black and gray suits for work, or do you kick it up a knotch?  :)  
Have a great day!

So I didn't plan on this being a Sam Edelman post...  I happened to just pick these pieces because they are beautiful and a beautiful price point!  :)  

My 4 must have shoes for fall?

1.  Heels - sort of a no brainer.  But there are so many gorgeous options this year.  Classic still reign, but check out more fabulous patterns and colors HERE.  I'm completely coveting these!

2. Flats - comfort is key, but so is style.  Flats are great for when you're out and about.  Find more great pieces HERE.  I just ordered these - how cute are they? (and everything at C.Wonder is 30% off!)

3. Boots & Booties - again, these are a necessity for fall/winter.  Nordstrom is my favorite place to shop for boots/booties.  They have a great selection in all price points.  I am saving my pennies for these and these :)  Mr. UPS man just delivered these (heart).

4. Sneakers - hello comfy shoes!  There are SO many cute pie options for 'sneaks' these days.  Find great fun and comfort HERE.  I posted these last week HERE!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Hello and happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a good weekend.  Ours was pretty low key with just a lot of family time.  The nuggets were pretty pooped from their first week of school and I'm hoping things get a little more smooth as time goes on.  We'll see... fingers crossed and lots of prayers!

If you read my blog frequently you know I have a slight (ah em...) love for J.Crew.  When their fall pieces came out, this endless shirt caught my eye.  However, it did not come in petite - poo J.Crew!  BUT, Loft now has a similar shirt and guess what?  They have it in petite - score!  So obviously I scooped it up :)  I do love these J.Crew Factory straight leg jeans that I recently added to my denim collection.  I may have them tailored, but I sorta like them long.  What do you think?  And this camo scarf?  LOVE!  If you're not into camo, this a perfect starter for you.  The colors are beautiful and even a little feminine!  This is a beautiful scarf for fall and perfect for gettin' cozy.  These Kate Spade heels were a #NSale purchase.  You can't go wrong with a fabulous nude heel.  These are completely fabulous, and these are great too for a great price.
