Simple Studs and Delicate Drops

Shiny things.

Hello, everyone! I didn’t intend for this post to be a gift guide for the holidays, but now that I’ve put the graphic together it feels like it could be just that. Because what girl wouldn’t want a new pair of earrings?
So I own a few pairs of Kate Spade over-sized studs (in the top left corner) in various colors and I love them. They are the perfect everyday earring and despite having many more pairs I hardly ever wear anything else. A classic pair of studs is an obvious accessory staple and they would make a great gift. In my dream wardrobe I own the totally drool-worthy Mise En Dior Tribal Pearl Earrings (in the top row) but really any pair in a neutral color is a great option. Side Note: there are plenty of Dior look-a-like options on Etsy for anyone who wants these earrings but doesn’t want to pay hundreds of dollars for them.
The second option I’ve shown hear is something that I have slowly been growing more fond of, which is the delicate drop earring. I own the silver Tiffany’s option shown in the bottom right and they have become my go-to earrings for getting dressed up, although there is no reason why I couldn’t wear them during the day either. Swarovski also has some amazing options in this category. I am particularly obsessed with the pair all the way to the left in the collage I’ve put together above.
If you click on the image above it should take you to all the shopping information you need to track down any of the pairs pictured.
What do you guys think? What jewelry do you wear every day?

Hello everyone! I purchased these BlankNYC overalls awhile ago, thinking I was going to push the sartorial limit and be one of the first badasses over the age of 10 to rock overalls in a public setting.

Then I chickened out.

But then… THEN I saw a photo of the one and only SJP wearing the same pair. THE. SAME. PAIR.

I might have freaked out a little…

TWINZ

So I did it. I wore them. And you know what? They are the most comfortable article of clothing ever. I wore them grocery shopping, I wore them to the mall, I wore them to Thanksgiving (best decision ever), I probably could have worn them while running a marathon, and now I can’t wait to find more ways to style them. In the photos above I’ve paired them with an American Apparel thermal and Converse sneakers, garnished with a vintage scarf and Prada sunglasses.

What do you guys think? Would you rock overalls? I’d love to hear how you would style them.

Have a great day!

Hello everyone! So I had two reasons to celebrate this weekend. One is that as of Friday I am officially 23. I know I’m technically still a baby but with each passing year I feel like I’ve learned a little more and am one step closer to “having it figured out” which I find exciting. It’s nice to reflect a little every now and then and appreciate all that you’ve accomplished in one year… Then of course you focus on what really matters: macarons. Macarons of the honey sage, lemon lavender, and sugar plum varieties to be exact. Needless to say, they were delicious. I also had dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Local 121, and tried beef tartar for the first time which was exciting (it’s not pictured, because it was gone pretty quickly).

My second reason to celebrate is that Fashion Food Fotos now has over 300 followers =). I don’t advertise the fact that I have a blog in my day to day life so it’s been really fun watching my followers grow organically. I’m glad you’re all enjoying the blog! Thank you for all the cyber support you throw my way, it’s great to know there are so many others out there that share my style and general aesthetic.

Have a great day!

So there’s this food truck in Providence, Mama Kim’s, that parks near my office every Tuesday and serves some crazy good Korean Barbecue. For a while I went every week because I couldn’t get enough of their Beef Bulgogi. Eventually I realized this was not fiscally responsible and so I decided I needed to learn to make it myself. After trying a few different recipes I finally found one that is just as good as the food truck.  I can’t even put into words how excited I am. Time to over dose on some Bulgogi goodness:

Beef Bulgogi Marinade (for 1 pound of shredded beef): 

3 Tbsp chopped garlic (about 2 cloves)

3 Tbsp soy sauce

2 Tbsp sugar

1 Tbsp honey

2 Tbsp fresh squeezed juice from an Asian pear (I just sliced up half of a regular pear and put it in with the marinade)

1 Tbsp Japanese rice wine (mirin)

1 Tbsp sesame oil

3 green onions, finely chopped

 

Marinate the beef overnight and cook in a frying pan until it is done. Serve with rice. Boom.

Have a great day!

IMG_3067.JPGHey everyone!

Today’s outfit is casual and in a somewhat muted color palate. I’m wearing a BCBG black button down with gray skinny cargo pants from Joe’s Jeans. Smoking slippers by Ralph Lauren, sunglasses by Michael Kors, and the scarf is something I just picked up about five years ago at an airport in Germany.

I feel like having this new mirror has been great for taking photos of my outfits for the blog, but has also opened my eyes to the fact that I wear very similar outfits everyday. I guess it doesn’t hurt to have a signature style, but maybe I’ll start coming up with some new combinations every now and then to shake things up.

What do you guys think? Do you have a “uniform” that you tend to wear all the time and if so how do you break up the pattern without spending too much time getting ready?

Have a great day!

Hey everyone!

As you know I moved recently and I’ve been working to come up with a culinary routine that is both easy and not too boring. Call me crazy but with a new start at a new place I’ve been feeling inspired to be a little healthier with my food choices. I don’t want to use the word diet because, well I’ve never done one and I don’t plan to. I’m the type of person who would decide not to eat carbs anymore and then immediately go order a large pizza with breadsticks and tell myself to suck it. It’s just basic instinct to want what you can’t have, am I right? But I have been trying to find healthier foods that are both easy to prepare and enjoyable, that way I can have the best of both worlds.

So I jumped on this year-old bandwagon and tried avocado toast. And it’s good. Better than I was expecting. I’ve been putting it on a whole wheat bagel thin with some tomato and a little sea salt and it’s yummy, fresh, and filling.

Are you guys on the avocado toast trend? What are some of your favorite healthy breakfast recipes?

Have a great day!

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the poor image quality, it was pretty dark and gloomy this morning. As you can see I went for a bit of a cowboy/biker hybrid look today. My boots are Vince Camuto, worn with jeans from Joe’s Jeans, a Ralph Lauren flannel, vintage scarf, Prada sunglasses, and Michael Kors jacket and bag.

It’s can be hard to find something that is both weather appropriate and sartorially savvy when it’s so blustery and rainy out. What do you guys wear when it’s gross out?

Have a great day!
