Thai Basil Peanut Pesto

Thai Basil Peanut Pesto

What do you do when you have an overwhelming amount of basil and the fall frost is about to hit? PESTO TIME! Ok, but what if you don’t have pine nuts…or parmesan cheese? PEANUT PESTO TIME! With the summer waning and my plants slowly saying […]

Clutch fall cell accessories

Clutch fall cell accessories

My second favorite season is finally here and I think we’re all ready for the cooler weather (or at least the NOT sweaty weather)! While spring is my absolute favorite, fall is definitely a runner up – there’s something about the changing of colors, the new menu items, a new cooler breeze flipping your hair under a cozy beanie, the moments curling up under a blanket (without being frozen)… it speaks to my soul! 

This month, I joined up with our local Verizon team to try out some stylish items to transition into fall. While I typically have a lot of bright and bold colors, the fall season does help me explore some more neutrals. I’m loving this new dusty rose/nude colored Rebecca Minkoff wristlet! It’s perfect for me for a few reasons: 

  • It’s COMPACT! I’m always on the run, so I need a wallet/purse that will be easy to carry that doesn’t take up a lot of room. 
  • It can fit TWO phones! Even though it’s small, this little clutch can handle my two work/personal phones with ease! 
  • It has a WRIST BAND! It goes without saying that a wristlet has a wrist band, but it really is convenient so I can hold it and use my hands at the same time! 
  • It’s CUTE! I’m not usually one for a super fashionable wallet, but this one is pretty cute! The black hardware over the matte leather are just subtle enough for my style! 

 

I also tested out the new Michael Kors Phone Pocket Sticker. While this pink pocket is super cute, it’s not really my style to have everything on my phone. It was easy to attach and stuck on once I did, keeping my cards safe and secure! 

After using these cute rosy neutrals, I’m feeling even more ready for fall in Baltimore! Soon I’ll be trading in my chilled iced teas and juices for some toasty teas and yummy treats! 

NOTE: This post was in partnership with Verizon but all opinions are my own. Thank you so much for supporting the brands that keep this blog going!
