It's almost Valentine's Day -- and that means I'm craving all things girly and pink.  While J and I typically stay home and cook something in our PJ's for Valentine's Day, I thought this white lace dress would be a perfect outfit for those of you who do have dinner plans!  We will probably continue the tradition this year...in addition to dinner we usually watch a movie at home.  Any movie suggestions you guys have would be highly appreciated, as we usually spend about 2 hours trying to find something before we actually agree on one and watch it!

You might recognize my heels, as they are very similar to the ever-popular Aquazurra heels (only without the high price tag!)  I chose purple since I wanted a color that would be appropriate for the upcoming spring season.  (Side note - if you have wider feet, I do suggest sizing up in these as they are a bit snug but will stretch a bit). 

What are your plans for V-Day?

I've been getting a lot of use out of this Forever21 skirt... which is great seeing as how it is extremely affordable.   I am honestly surprised at how versatile the color is and how well it pairs with things!  Being that I am not super tall, I like to wear high-waisted things that will make me look taller.  I also like to wear belts around the waist area to give the illusion of curves -- something I am lacking.

The leopard belt is a staple that I think everyone should have.  This particular one is from Target, and I love how it pairs with the tortoise sunglasses.

I hope you are all having a great week, and thanks for stopping by!

Well, another weekend has come and gone!  This weekend was extra special (if you follow me on instagram, you already know) as Jesse and I took a little weekend getaway up the coast to Santa Barbara with our two pups.  It was my first time exploring the city and it is so adorable and there is so much charm.  We talked about making it an annual thing... so hopefully we keep it up.  I'll be sharing more about the trip in a future blog post... so stay tuned!

For now, I am loving dresses like the one above as we're getting a lot of mixed weather signals -- one day is hot, the next is cold.  I'm highly appreciative of the lightweight fabric, but it still has a winter look to it and allows you to layer.  It is of course black and white stripes because frankly, I have an obsession with black and white stripes.  Jesse's sister and I laugh about it because anytime we're shopping together she has to forcefully tell me "no" to anything B&W striped...it's an addiction.

These booties are on MAJOR sale right now (half off from what I paid), and they are one of my favorite purchases this season.  I tried them on in stores back before the holidays, and loved them but didn't end up getting them.  Then I thought about them for weeks after (you know the feeling), and knew I had to get them.  They're the perfect shoes for when you want to wear a heel but want to be comfortable at the same time.

Vegan Valentine's Day Sundaes

hotfudge2  

One of the hardest things about being vegan or lactose intolerant is missing out on delicious desserts when you eat out or you're at a party. Every year on Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend and I stay home and cook together in our pajamas, but we usually don’t make a dessert. 

This year, I thought it would be fun to put together an ice cream sundae bar so we can each make our own creations. Instead of buying hot fudge and caramel, I decided to make my own – and the result is to die for. Both recipes are super easy to make with only a few ingredients, and they are dairy-free. 

After you make the hot fudge and caramel, pour it over your favorite vegan ice cream; I used cashew ice cream in a vanilla bean flavor. (Note: Vegan ice cream does not have the exact same consistency as regular ice cream, but in my opinion, it tastes just as great!) I also put out some small bowls with fun assorted toppings, so we could each get creative and make our own hot fudge sundae!

Cook time: 20 min | Prep time: 2 min | Serves: 6 

Ingredients (Hot Fudge): 
  • 1 can (13.5 oz.) full-fat coconut milk
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp. vegan butter
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract

Ingredients (Caramel):
  • 1 can (13.5 oz.) coconut milk
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • Small pinch sea sal
hotfudge3

 
Directions:

1. Hot Fudge: In a blender, blend the coconut milk, coconut sugar and cocoa powder until smooth (helps ensure the sauce will not be lumpy).

2. Caramel (optional): Blend coconut milk, coconut sugar and maple syrup.

3. Pour each mixture separately into a small saucepan and bring it to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes, then remove from heat.

4. Whisk in the coconut oil/vegan butter and vanilla.

5. Allow the sauces to cool for 20 minutes. A thin film will naturally form over the top of the fudge sauce, which is perfectly normal. Simply give the fudge/caramel sauce a good whisk before pouring it into an airtight glass container. The sauce will continue to thicken while it cools.

6. Store the fudge in the refrigerator; it can be served cold or hot. Consume within 4-6 days.

I'm not a big pink person, but something about the month of February inspires me to try it out.  I think the shade of this dress is the perfect "pink" for my fellow ladies who also don't wear pink often.  It's a girly shade without being too youthful.  I love that this dress looks like it is a shirt layered under a shift dress but it's all one dress -- I'm all for things that add simplicity to getting ready!  (I also can't resist anything black and white striped, as displayed in my other outfit post this week).  

This outfit would be the perfect sweet outfit for a Valentine's Day date night -- wouldn't you agree?
