Dusty Pink Tee


Happy Friday! Sharing an easy look I wore on one of the beautiful days we've been having lately! This top is a new favorite - it's super soft and comes in other colors, but this dusty pink was my favorite, and at $10 it can't get better! 


Also these jeans were a recent splurge but I grabbed them on sale and thought they had the perfect amount of "distressed" look to them - and they fit me perfectly! They look so good with pointy toe pumps! For my petite girls the length is really perfect to hit right at the ankle.


Outfit details:  top ($10!)  //  jeans  //  shoes (mine are the $12 version of these)  //  watch  //  sunnies

This pink top is seriously going to get some heavy use - I literally wore it the next day for our super quick trip to Miami! See the instagram pic below!

PS - my polish is OPI alpine snow! It's my absolute favorite white! I've gotten it now twice in a row!

Almond Joy Protein Oats


Today I'm sharing the easy recipe for my favorite breakfast! I've literally eaten this every morning for the past two weeks lol! My favorite part is that you can prepare it in advance if you want and just grab it from the fridge and go in the morning! 

-------------------
Ingredients:

(this is my favorite brand)!

(this brand mixes the best and has the best taste)





Simply mix all ingredients and let sit in fridge overnight. Or, if you like it warm sometimes I'll quickly cook my oats in the morning by just pouring a bit of boiling water over them and letting it sit for a couple of minutes (while I get other things ready) and then add all of the other ingredients and mix! So easy to eat on the commute too! No more excuses for not eating breakfast! 



It's not particularly low-calorie, but it keeps you full all morning and is full of whole grains, fiber, protein, and lots of vitamin E (so good for your skin)! To make it even healthier you could use unsweetened shredded coconut and unsweetened almond milk (sorry I'm not parting with my bit of sweetness haha)!

PS - my container photo'd here with twist on lid (the best!) came as part of our Nutri-Bullet.

In Living Color

Sharing a fun look worn the other day - wearing bright florals for Spring even though I still have to wear a coat and there is snow on the ground! It's April!!! This top is super fun and pairs really well with high waisted jeans or a high waisted pencil skirt for clinic or the office! And at less than $20 the price doesn't get better!

UPPAbaby G-LINK Stroller Review

Guys - the weather is FINALLY getting warmer (and of course just as I type that, tomorrow they're saying we're supposed to get snow!!!) But we had a glorious couple of days and I happened to be off (I'm on my ED rotation right now so there's actually time off)! It was perfect weather to get the girls out and try out our new double stroller! 


We recently got the UPPAbaby G-LINK and I was instantly really attracted to the sleek all-black look and all of the fantastic features (cupholder that doesn't make the stroller any wider, seats that individually recline at 4 different positions, amazing sun shades, easy to clip straps, a single brake, peek-a-boo windows, and - believe it or not - really easy opening and closing)! There's even a snap on mesh foot barrier and head inserts for smaller babes that I haven't attached yet but will be perfect for Elli! It also easily fits in my trunk which was a huge plus.

My biggest concern with this stroller was its width - I was terrified I'd get stuck in a doorway or not be able to get through! But we walked all around town and I was able to get in and out of everywhere - including our front door, Dunkin Donuts, and even a small playground gate! The best part of the stroller - Liv loves looking over and checking on Elli. It's the cutest thing. She also loves waking her up (just watch the video below lol)! 


Shopping info:  UPPAbaby G-LINK (in Jake, the all-black version)  //  new Nike sneakers (more sizes also available here)  //  Patagonia fleece jacket  //  long tee  //  leggings

Hope you guys all have a great weekend!
