FAUX LEATHER & FINE DINING

So glad it is Thursday!! The weekend is right around the corner and the temps are rising! Spring is here to stay this time... hopefully. 

I had a, "Girl's Night", at mi casa on Tuesday and it was fabulous! I have such a great group of friends and we have fun no matter what we are doing! And as usual, I took the opportunity to get a little glammed up.

-Faux leather pants in merlot by Rock & Republic for Kohl's (this color is AH-mazing)
-Suede merlot heels by Lauren Conrad for Kohl's

For dinner I did what most girls do these days: browsed Pinterest, duh! I made Buffalo Chicken stuffed peppers with a side of guacamole, and...




Italian style beef stuffed peppers with a side of marinara. YUM! 




This Pampered Chef beer bread is SO freaking good... I drool just thinking about it!




Paired with two Pampered Chef dipping oil mixes




And of course... WINE!




Oh yeah, and dessert.... Uhh yeaahh!

"Brownie Batter Dip" and "Funfetti Dip" with fruit, pretzels, animal crackers and honey graham sticks. So freaking good, especially paired with a Sweet Rose!






I think we all had a great time :)

SUMMER ESSENTIALS

Well, the weekend went a little something like this...




My man at the grill...




Warm weather...




...and now the temps are plummeting to freezing, grill cover is on, hanging baskets in the garage for coverage so my flowers don't freeze and jackets are again a staple of my everyday. BLAH!! Can the weather make up its mind? PLLLEEeeaase!

It is clear I am yearning for warmth because at the first sign of it I was rocking a crop top and some wide leg pants, both from Forever 21. Love! I've said it before and I'll say it again: high waisted, wide leg pants are a MUST for this Spring/Summer. And, in case you haven't noticed, crop tops too!

That cute clutch I'm holding is a new piece from Stella & Dot's Summer Collection. Love, love, LOVE it!

And these earrings are to die for! The coral is just the right pop of color and the two lower links can be detached for a short look. Genius!

At least I am hosting, "Girl's Dinner", tomorrow night at my house so my mind is preoccupied with things other than this terrible weather! Here is a sneak peak of what is in store!






Details to come!

P.S. Has anyone shopped the Peter Som Collection at Kohl's?? I haven't gone yet! GASP, I know! ha!
