DELICIOUS DINES | Fully Loaded Brownie

You know the food was great when you can still imagine the taste of it months after you actually ate it.  That's what this brownie does for me.  The Fully Loaded Brownie at RePUBlic Gastropub in Oklahoma City left me fully satisfied, yet I was wanting to repeat that experience once more the next day... and the next day, and the next day.  This isn't just any ordinary brownie a la mode, it's topped with RePUBlic's house made caramel and chocolate sauces, which certainly tickle your sweet and salty taste buds.

OOTD | To the Max(i)

Hello there and Happy August! I hope everyone's summer is going swell. Summer in Oklahoma has been quite mild and I am loving every bit of it! Today, I wanted to share with you all a recent outfit featuring this gorgeous printed maxi from the Banana Republic outlet.  I scored an awesome deal on this dress ($15!!) about a week after their 4th of July sale.  I don't really own anything from Banana Republic, because I didn't think it fit my style, but I browsed around to see what they had, and landed this beauty. The dress fits well, but like every other maxi that I own, it's a tad too long. Whenever I wear it, I gather up some of the fabric at the bottom and tie a cute little knot so that I don't trip when I walk.

OOTD | Proper in Pleather

Happy Monday! Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite ensembles that I wore recently.  It consists of a pleated-back blouse from Francesca's and a pleather A-line skirt from Marshall's.  I spotted this blouse at work and the uniqueness of the pleats on the back captivated me, but I never gave in to buying it until it went on clearance.  Even then, it sat in my closet, collecting dust, because I had no idea how to style it.  How exactly do you style a cropped (but not too cropped) top with a pleated back? I tried to look at Pinterest for outfit inspirations, but had no luck.  One night, I played around with different bottoms, and found the perfect pairing: a pleather skirt.  I think the edginess of the skirt contrasts extremely well with the poshness of the blouse.  It's proper on the top and punk on the bottom.
