Friday Favorite: Girl Crush and GroopDealz

Ever since I first heard the song "Tim McGraw" I have had a major girl crush on Taylor Swift. I was a big country fan growing up and Tim McGraw was my favorite. I thought that Taylor was very brave putting out a single named after the best country singer - I was either going to love or hate her. And I love her. She also always wears such fun sparkly dresses. When I saw her in concert (Speak Now Tour) I about died with every outfit change. I even designed a collection at FIT based on her (we had to pick a celebrity). I just think she is adorable. Here are some lovely gowns she has worn in the past.

leopard faux fur vest: 2 ways





faux fur vest (on sale): Banana Republic // sweater: J.Crew Factory // pants: J.Crew // shoes: J.Crew
necklace: J.Crew Factory // earrings: Nordstrom // watch: Timex

I am trying to wear all my favorite winter pieces before the snow clears up and Spring comes - that means I am wearing all my faux fur as much as possible. Here are two ways I styled this amazing vest I got this year for Christmas. It is such a gorgeous neutral, I should style it next with a pop of color.

super casual with North Face




tee: J.Crew // jacket: North Face via Nordstrom // sweats: GapFit
shoes: Sperry's via J.Crew // beanie: neff via PacSun

I figured it wouldn't be right if I never posted the outfit I am in most.. this is what I am usually wearing between teaching, workouts, classes, errands, etc. Comfy cozy pants (or workout pants) with my favorite North Face and either Sperry's or Ugg's. Throw on a hat or beanie and the outfit is complete.

Happy Wednesday everybody!

I also thought it'd be fun to share my weekly shopping list. It obviously changes a bit each week depending on what recipes I am planning on making and what staple ingredients I am running low on.

At the beginning of each week I meal plan - breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I have my go-to recipes but I also usually try to throw in at least one new recipe a week. During the week we usually eat fish 3 times, lean meat 2 times, the rest is vegetarian. We split up the meat between lunch and dinner and usually eat at least one green salad and one green smoothie a day. I also plan out 4 snacks per day. My snacks usually include - smoothie/juice, hard boiled egg, nuts and dried fruit, cut veggies, pita chips, etc.

My weekly grocery bill comes to about $80-100. I shop mostly organic and from my local farmer's market.

A little math.
$100 / 2 people = $50/person
$50 / 7 days = $7.14/day
7 days / 7 meals (3 meals and 4 snacks) = $1.02/meal-snack

Thanks to Martha Stewart I have a nice shopping list sheet that I keep on my fridge and update throughout the week when I run out of staple items, then when I meal plan I fill in the rest of what I need.

Weekly Items:

PRODUCE
apples (2 fuji and 3 green), bananas (2), oranges (2), lemons (4), limes (2), berries, mango, pear, spinach, lettuce (romain/spring mix), kale, cucumbers (3), cherry tomatoes, peppers (2), onion, garlic, carrots, broccoli, parsley, avocado (2), cilantro , celery, radish, yams, potatoes

I prepare as much of my food as I can on Mondays - I chop up the veggies and prepare anything I possibly can that can be made ahead of time. That way during the week I have a lot less preparation time which means - I actually eat what I have planned.


Happy meal planning and grocery shopping!
