Outfits File: Lace romper and Leopard Pumps

I stumbled upon this lace romper a couple of weeks ago at Zara and I was immediately drawn to it. I forever regretted not getting a navy lace dress months ago (here I am trying it on), so when I saw this I felt like I was given a second chance ;) Best thing about it is that I think is even more versatile than the dress, aaannnd it was cheaper, so definitely a win win :)

Wearing: Ray-Ban classic aviators / Two Penny Blue Sutton Blazer / BaubleBar Crystal Mesopotamia Earrings (just $20 right now!) / Kate Spade clutch (old, similarka) / Zara Lace Jumpsuit / Marais USA Leopard Pumps (old, similar)

Fashion File: 4 easy ways to transition into Fall

With Fall just around the corner, here are four easy ways to help you transition from Summer to Fall:

. TOSS ON A LEATHER JACKET: In my opinion, leather jackets are definitely a Fall staple, and throwing them on a white summer lace or on your favorite summer number, not only helps you get the most out of your wardrobe but creates an interesting and contrasting look. So don't be afraid to pair it with delicate pieces like a lace or eyelet dress ;) - Gap quilted leather moto jacket / Madewell perfect leather motorcycle jacket / Sunday Best Franzen Leather Jacket / Madewell Summerhouse dress

. PAIR SHORTS AND BOOTIES: Shorts and booties together are a great combo and can make the whole open-toes to boot transition easy while still making you feel like you have not surrendered completely to the cooler temperatures ;) Just keep in mind that the wider the boot is around the ankle, the slimmer your leg will look, and vice-versa. - Lucky Brand Basel Booties / Sam Edelman Petty booties / Gap 1969 destructed sexy boyfriend denim shorts / Gap Sunkissed scallop-hem shorts

. THROW ON A FEDORA: Hats are a great way to update your look as they always bring in a cool vibe to any outfit and instantly transform it. A simple tee and skinny jeans outfit can be taken to the next level if you toss on a fedora, so don't be afraid to sport one! - Banana Republic Blair Felt Hat / Bailey for J.Crew Felt Hat

. LAYER SOME PLAID OR TARTAN: Layering is definitely the way to go during the Fall and its varying temps, and what better way to do it than with a plaid or tartan shirt? For an effortless and relaxed look, just throw it on a simple tee. - Gap Fitted boyfriend plaid shirt / rxmance® 200 peace tee

Food File: Nut free granola bars

A couple of days ago I shared these on Instagram and some of you were asking for the recipe, but since I rarely measure my ingredients, I had to take notes the following time I made them, so here it is :)

Making granola bars is seriously the easiest thing to do, you just throw it all in a bowl, press it down on a baking pan, bake it, cut it and that's it. It's just as easy as it sounds, trust me. This recipe is an adaptation to my usual bars because now that Matthew goes to Jr. Kindergarten he can't take anything with nuts in his lunch bag to school. So here's a nut-free granola bars recipe:

What you need:
- 2 weetabix bars (crushed)
- 1/2 cup quinoa flakes (if you don't have it just replace it with oats)
- 3/4 cups oats
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tbsp. flaxmeal
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 tbsp. ground chia seeds
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 12 dried apricots cut into small pieces
- 1 tbsp. raw honey
- 1 1/4 cups unsweetened applesauce

What to do:
. Mix all ingredients in the same order as above.
. Press down onto a square baking pan.
. Bake for 20 min at 350.
. Let cool and cut into squares or bars.

My life file: Last week's bits and pieces

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend! I had a lovely lunch on Friday with Jenny, Victoria and Julie at Colette followed by a great night with my friend Daniela from Curious Citizen at Lululemon's Half Moon and The Stars rooftop party. You know it's a great party when you're in great company, Natural Animal is in charge of the music, and the appetizers include mini grilled cheese sandwiches and personal guacamole bowls! Oh and to top it off, you leave with a tank top with some inspiring words....yeap, I call that a good party :) 

Wishing you a great week, here are some snaps from last week!

Great Finds File: Zulu and Zephyr

I know that we are soon stepping into Fall but I just couldn't resist to share this fabulous Australian Swimwear brand, Zulu and Zephyr, with all of you. I feel like every single time I come across a great swimwear brand it turns out to be aussie. I've shared about Zimmerman and Triangl before, so I feel like they sure know their business down under ;) Here are a few of my favorite looks and some shots from their instagram account, which is beautiful!

Outfits File: Tartan and Faux Leather

I think I'm ready for Fall fashion, especially plaid and tartan shirts :) I've worn this combo twice already: the first time was with these sandals, and absolutely loved it, so if the weather wants to cool down a bit, I'm ready for some layering :)

Wearing: Joe Fresh Hat (similar, similar) / Ray-Ban Aviators / J.Crew Tartan Popover (old, similar, similar) / Zara Faux leather shorts (old, similar, similar) / Nine West Instafun Heels / Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise Satchel
