Instagram Round Up

This blue hue has been on repeat lately. This polish is really long-lasting, especially with how my fast my nails have been growing.

The countdown is on to meet our sweet baby boy! I’m gravitating towards basic tees, comfy lightweight cardigans, and my favorite maternity denim and ankle boots (even though they’re becoming a little more difficult to zip on and off! haha)

breakfast

My favorite weekend breakfast, vegan sausage patties, gluten free cinnamon raisin toast and fresh fruit. When in need of a caffeine fix, this Black & White Cold Brew with Almond Milk is pretty yummy!

The Freshly Picked team sent Baby H the cutest moccs! I can’t wait to stick his little feet in them!

This Week… Glitter, Pumpkins & Sweater Weather

This Week... Glitter, Pumpkins & Sweater Weather | Kate Spade New York Glitter Sneakers

I swooped up some fabulous finds at this weekend’s Friends & Family Event at Kate Spade. If there is anything you’ve been eyeing up, now is the time to pounce! I swooned when I spotted this shoes, and have been sporting them since.

Another great Kate Spade score, and my go-to accessory, to bring along on my New York trip next week.

Visiting fun Fall festivals, pumpkin patches and markets with my bestie has become a weekend fixture.

The perfect sweater.

Camo has become my fave “neutral print,” as of late. A piece in the print lets me go totally girlie on the rest of my ensemble or accessories.

I don’t think there’s any catalog I get more excited to dive into than when the shiny J.Crew one arrives at my doorstep. I’m so intrigued to see what fab pieces are sprinkled throughout it for the upcoming season. The edgy touch upon their classic pieces this Fall has me swooning over every. single. item.

Camo Cupcakes

Camo Cupcakes

While baking, I’m usually as girlie chic as it goes. But when it came to baking something for my best friend’s husband’s birthday party, I had to think outside “jewelry” box. I found this fun camo cupcake recipe from Crafty Mama, and decided would be perfect!

Camo Cupcakes

Separate one white cake mix into four different bowls, and color accordingly. I use gel food coloring for all my baking needs. It works much better than the liquid form for cakes, cookies, and icings.

Camo Cupcakes

Fill pastry bags, or ziplock bags (which I used because it was much less messy, while using multiple colors) with each of the colored cake mixes.

Camo Cupcakes

Pipe a dollop of each color into two cupcake pans evenly. Bake according to recipe instructions.

Instead of making one large cake, I liked the idea of simply making a “24” shape out of the decorative cupcakes.

Instead of going full-out camo, I opted for a Creamy Chocolate Icing to frost the cupcakes.

**To veganize this recipe, start with a making a batch of vegan cupcakes and substituting all natural food coloring.

Club Camo

This season is all about prints. I’m having fun with this unexpected army inspired trend! Adding a pair of pointed toe flats instantly polishes a casual and cozy look.

In Disguise – Camo Accents

  1. Old Navy Printed Flats
  2. Topshop Camo Army Jacket
  3. Current/Elliott The Ankle Skinny in Army Camo

I’m not one for camo, but I’m loving this unexpected accent. An army green utility jacket is essential in my closet, so this hyped up version serves as a great statement item. If you dare to wear, be sure to incorporate just a single piece of the print. Anything more is taking the trend overboard. A utility jacket, skinny pant or subtle shoe is a safe bet!
