Super Stripes 2: Day 4

Vest - Papaya, thrifted
Star Skirt - Versace Jean, thrifted
Boots - Fluevog, ebay
Necklace (actually bracelets) - Target

Wow, onto Day 4 of Stripes Week. I rarely do scheduled posts, but I've got a doctor's appointment and my classes afterwards. This was an outfit I wore shortly before our temperatures skyrocketed on into summer-like days. I adore this striped skirt, but due to it's length, I don't wear it nearly enough.

In lieu of anything better to write, how about a way to beat the heat! Or just treat yourself.

Strawberry - or not - Smoothie
1/2 box of strawberries (8 ounces?), rinsed and capped
1/3 can of coconut milk (my advice: stir the solid bits before pouring)
cup of ice (I used crushed)
Optional add-ins: banana, orange juice, any other berries or fruit (fresh or frozen), fresh mint leaves 
Put it in blender... Blend! Garnish with whatever you used. Drink.

I picked up a bunch of fresh fruits and veggies for super cheap. These strawberries were just a bit tart, but blended with ice and coconut milk, no dairy or added sugar needed, was a perfect dessert.


  1. Great clash of patterns.

  2. Oooh, that smoothis looks good! I've never used coconut milk in a smoothie before... I bet it gives it a tropical taste.

    I love the pattern mixing you're doing here!

  3. Great pattern mixing Megan and I love the vest! That smoothie looks yummy too.

  11. You look modern and smashing as always, but seriously, how did you get bracelets around your neck? I still get tangled up with I try to double my long strands of beads or freshwater pearls :P
