Zesty and fresh, with just the right amount of tang…

Based on what I’m pinning lately, this color scheme has been screaming my name! Shop the look below and let the bold brights inject an extra dose of flavor into your Monday morning. ;)

Ps. – Just snatched up this dress for a wedding we’re going to at the beach this weekend, and LOVE that it goes perfectly with today’s Color Crush! ;)

Sunday Sprinkles // Butterflies + Raccoon Eyes

peonies [image found here]

+  Have you ever tried this genius eyeliner trick?  I’m on my first go (as of this morning), and promise to report back ASAP… Raccoon eyes, BE GONE!

+  You may have already seen my mention in last week’s love note, but Mr. Pepper and I are starting a new thing very soon!  As usual, my butterflies are flapping around like crazy.

+  These are the chicest jogging sneakers I ever did see. (Though something tells me they’d be a disaster to actually work out in.  Can anyone confirm?)

+  Anyone who knows someone dealing with anxiety (which is actually pretty much EVERYONE) should read this post.  Descriptive, honest, and a heartfelt account of some of the very same things that so many of us experience daily.

+ Rosemary, sea salt + vinegar beet chips… Something tells me these are TOTALLY worth the pink fingers.

Happy Sunday, Chickadees!

Peppery Picks // Studs + Slippers

7.17 peppery picks final

Just a few little pretties to distract us from the fact that I’m simply BURIED in boxes this weekend…

Trying not to worry about a single thing, and relying on my own studly husband to lift the heavy stuff (while saving enough energy to make us delightful drinks afterwards).  Ringing in the week with a few friends at a local taqueria, and then spending as little of our Sunday as possible wearing actual shoes. (Opting for these little guys instead.)

What are you up to on your next few days off?

Concrete Catwalk // Summer Uniforms


So far, our summer highlights have included big leisurely brunches, exploring new terrain, and dozens of date nights with my main man… Dressing for all of the above is made much more effortless by the of something that every laid-back-season should have: A summer uniform!

I always try to adjust my look based on the outing at hand, but one thing that stayed as a stylish constant last weekend was this light linen scarf that tied all of the looks together. (…See what I did there? *Wink!*)

Today, I’m sharing THREE separate looks that are all wrapped up around a weekend of fun and I love that they all have one thing in common…

Keep reading to spot the gauzy little swath of goodness doing it’s job, and share your favorite summer uniform by playing along in the comments below!

Nutrish & Delish // 10 Ways to Eat Strawberries

Healthy Cooking_Strawberries

Summertime just SCREAMS fresh, sun-ripened berries to me… Eating them by the bushel and shoving them straight into my mouth is the preferred method of eating them here at home, but every once a while I try to get fancy by working them in to an actual recipe. ;)

I’ve rounded up a few delightful ways to prepare them by this glowing gal, and I’d love to have you tell me your all time favorite way to eat strawberries below this post!

Ps. – My mom and I used to dip them into a little dish of sour cream and then a big pile of brown sugar when I was a little girl (has anyone else ever done this?)…  The combo of flavors is INCREDIBLE, and I only wish there were a way to recreate without the serious sugar high!
