NYFW Recap

New York Fashion Week is coming to a close so I thought it would be fun to take a look back at all the gorgeous pieces presented and the trends we will be seeing popping up all over the place…Lets just say we have a lot to look forward to come Spring/ Summer 2014.

Crop Tops still rule! I love the proportion a crop top and a high waisted skirt or trouser create. So flattering!

White Out Head to toe white will continue to transition through the seasons and I’m thrilled. It’s so crisp and classic.

Pastels Although they can be a bit expected of Spring, I feel like Pastels are great wardrobe staples and look super feminine. Just be careful to not overdo it, while monochrome looks are cool and very in, you don’t want to look like a Laduree macaron 😝.

Back to Basics Navy blazers, white shirts and shift dresses get a fresh makeover and I’m a huge fan!

Shortcut to Delicious

I’m usually one for going all out and cooking weeknight feasts…I said usually. Today I was just tired and not looking forward to spending an hour in the kitchen, so I decided to get a little creative and take some shortcuts. I’m sure you guys know by now I have a slight pasta addiction and that was definitely the first thing that came to mind. I tried this sauce a couple of weeks ago and was amazed at how delicious it is, so much so that I just had to have it again. I have never been a fan of jarred pasta sauce but this one can give some home made sauces a run for their money; it is perfectly seasoned (not too heavy on the sodium) and can stand alone or be a great companion to chicken or seafood. The ravioli have a butternut squash filling (light and savory) and the shrimp were pre-cooked to perfection (thanks Whole Foods!!!). I added a little chopped basil, arugula and spinach. Voila! Dinner in 15 minutes! I hope I can inspire you to be a little lazy too 😉
