All. Time. Favorite. Dress. Ever. 

I'm so pumped to introduce to y'all one of my all time

favorite

stores, Shein (previously Sheinside). Let my preface by saying I'm in no way sponsored by them, I just really love them this much! I initially found the online store years ago, and have loved it ever since. A few months ago, I was in desperate need of more clothes but didn't want to spend thousands to get it. Shein was the perfect answer! Because of their more than reasonable prices, you can score tons of adorable new pieces without breaking the bank!

This dress in particular was one that was totally calling my name. I love anything flowy, bohemian, and printed (

so basically all of Free People

), so when I saw this dress for less than $25, I was sold!! I've been trying to not wear it every single day, but when I do wear it everyone always loves it! The fall colors of the print make it the perfect transition piece, or fall dress for a place like Texas that doesn't

really

 experience fall! This same dress comes in a ton of other colors, and I'm actually pretty in love with the 

black

 version. You can never have too many boho dresses, right?:) 

Thanks for reading!

This is one of those weeks that I just want to lounge in workout clothes with unbrushed hair, but I always regret that halfway through the day when I look in the mirror... 

Instead, I put together the perfect fall outfit for those days where you want to look nice, while still maintaining an element of effortless ease and comfort. I'm also really loving each of these pieces individually, which makes them definite fall staples! 

A majority of the items are from

Sincerely Jules

, which perfectly captures that effortless look. The rest of the pieces are a little on the pricy side compared to what I usually share with y'all, so I linked similar options below!

Thanks for reading!

Hey, y'all! As you've probably figured out by now, I'm all about a laid-back, minimalistic outfit. I found this t-shirt in my brother's closet and it is seriously the softest thing ever. I kept this look very simple with my favorite pair of black jeans and a big oversized (

and reversible

) tote. By adding a statement necklace and shoes, it dressed the look up just enough to make it look like I didn't actually just roll out of bed!

Thanks so much for reading!

fall inspired: tiger stripe cake

PRINTABLE RECIPE

Disclaimer

: There is absolutely nothing healthy about this recipe whatsoever. I normally try to modify unhealthy desserts to be a little bit healthier, but this is one of those recipes you just have to try as is! 

Growing up, tiger stripe cake was my absolute favorite dessert. The combination of decadent chocolate cake and the quintessential fall pumpkin bread made the sweet treat irresistible. My mom had a small baking business, and Mizzou fans always loved this treat as a cute way to celebrate football games. 

We usually make this recipe in a bundt cake (

which looks precious

), but I thought putting it in individual mason jars would be perfect for fall! Not only are mason jars super cute and trendy, but it makes it easy to give out as gifts. By adding a little bit of ribbon to the jars, it's the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season with your friends and family. 

I have to confess, when my mom and I make this, we use her homemade pumpkin bread recipe. To make it easier on y'all, I would suggest just buying a boxed version. Because I make the homemade version, I'm not sure how much the boxed kind will make. I halved our recipe for pumpkin bread, and there was still enough left over to make a small loaf of the bread. When layering, use your best judgment for how much to add on each layer. I added measurements as a guideline, but it really just depends on how large your mason jars (

or other containers

) are and how full you want them to be! You can see from the picture above how much batter I layered in the jars, and it actually was a little bit too much! Unfortunately, the cakes fell after I took them out of the oven, but they were still at the brim or over. 

Before baking the cakes, I wanted to make sure it would be safe to bake in the mason jars. One recommendation was to place the jars in a baking dish filled with hot water. I started off doing that, but when I saw the batter overflowing into the water, I decided to switch them onto a cookie sheet. The water will definitely change the way the cakes bake, but if you're afraid of baking in mason jars, that may be a good route to go!
