Spring Stripes + FF Link-Up!

Happy Wednesday loves! Hope you are having a great week so far. We have so much going on right now that I can't even tell y'all--it has been a crazy month or two! I'm excited for the weekend because Steven and I are going to celebrate my birthday by going to the Boston aquarium and then we're going out to eat at Row 34. I've been wanting to try it for so long because I've heard awesome things about their lobster roll but we wanted to wait for a special occasion to go.

I have been living in lightweight sweaters like this and will continue to do so as the weather warms up! I love anything striped and these stripes are neutral perfection.

My Favorite Pinterest Crockpot Recipes!

Happy Monday friends! Who else is majorly struggling this morning? I had a really fun weekend because a few of my friends were in Boston so Saturday we went out for drinks and caught up which was such a blast. Sunday, Steven headed out of town but he'll be back tonight so I honestly didn't do a ton. Just cleaned up the apartment and relaxed!

Almost every weekend Steven and I will make something in the crockpot so that we have lunch for the rest of the week. It's the perfect routine for our busy schedules and honestly saves us so much money because we're never really eating out for lunch! I have made up a few of my own recipes but for the most part I try to find something on Pinterest the week before then stock up on all of the ingredients to make the recipe on Sundays. After trying out SO many different recipes, I thought I'd share my top 5 that we've made and really enjoyed!

An Easy Slow Cooker Taco Pasta recipe that you can prep ahead. With just 10 minutes prep, this comforting crock pot pasta dish is so fast and easy to make! |
This one has been our absolute favorite so far. It had so much flavor and a bowl of this keeps you extremely full! I also love how inexpensive the whole recipe is.

Meatless Monday never tasted so good! Hearty and chunky lentil chili much healthier than your traditional chili but tastes exactly like your favorite bowl of ground beef chili! | @littlebroken #meatlessmonday #vegetarian #chili
Steven would probably disagree with having this one in the top 5 just because he's not a fan of meatless meals haha. I LOVE them and I also loved this recipe! Lentils are so yummy and filling and are a great source of plant protein. This recipe had a ton of flavor and is very heart.

Two white bowls of easy tortilla soup with chicken made in the slow cooker.
We've tried a few variations of chicken tortilla soup and this one was definitely my favorite! Definitely had the most flavor. I think with chicken tortilla soup it's also all about the toppings you add. This one was delicious with cilantro, avocado, tortilla or taco chips and a little bit of sour cream!

Pile of golden, crispy and juicy Pork Carnitas on a white plate.
I'm sort of weird because I'm not a big pork fan at ALL but I LOVE pork carnitas! This is a great, easy recipe and we typically will pack up the carnitas for lunch along with corn tortillas, a little bit of salsa and avocado. Such a delicious and protein-packed lunch!

This one is probably the easiest and also has the cheapest ingredients! It's super yummy and heart especially during colder months. One thing I would suggest is adding a little bit more salt/pepper and also garlic powder for more flavor. I found it to be sort of bland until I added more! 

Hope you enjoyed this post! Would love to hear some of your favorite crockpot recipes in the comments below.

Styling a Utility Shirt + FF Link-Up!

Utility Shirt, Thermal (old, almost identical here), Jeans: Topshop, Booties: Vince Camuto, Earrings: Free People, Bag: Louis Vuitton
Happy Wednesday friends! I hope you're having a great week so far. It has actually been a little bit warmer in Boston this week which I am definitely happy about along with the longer days! Those extra few hours of sunshine just make a huge difference in my mood.

This utility shirt has been such a great purchase since I got it a few months ago. I love wearing it on it's own and also LOVE pairing it over tanks like this one! It's definitely a perfect transitional piece for spring and summer. The material is so soft and doesn't easily wrinkle which I am all about!
