Mint all around

Friday, May 31, 2013



Hello! Happy Friday! It was so nice today- 90 degrees and almost no humidity. Finally summer is here!  As you may have noticed, I am obsessed with cardigans and big costume jewelry and I was so excited when the piping on my cardigan matched my necklace and watch! I don't have any big plans this weekend, but I am very excited about chilling out and catching up on my reading! Do you have any big weekend plans? I would love to hear about them! 

Shoes: Sam Edelman- they are so comfy! 
Shorts: Anthropologie- like these but bluer 
Shirt, necklace, and watch are anthropologie. I couldn't find any of them but here is a similar necklace and two watch choices, 1 and 2
Cardigan: J Crew
bracelet: The View On Elm

Changes

As you may have noticed I have made some changes to the blog, but don't worry, it's just to make it easier to navigate. I have also created an email (leftylivinglife@gmail.com) and you can email me if you want to chat or have suggestions or anything. I am also planning on adding a couple new pages so expect those soon. Have a great day!

A new cardigan and dress plus mixing neutrals!

Tuesday, May 28, 2013



Hello! Mom and I had a fabulous lunch outside. It was a little blustery, but very pleasant. My dress and cardigan are both new and I wanted to wear them together, so I just decided to be all neutral :) Have a fabulous rest of your week!

I couldn't find the exact dress or cardigan, but they are both from Anthropologie and here is a similar dress in black
Purse is Kate Spade , who I would definitely recommend for bags
Shoes are old Stuart Weitzman, but I heard Jeffrey Campbell, might have cheetah print heels. Also here is a flat version from Madewell

One of my new cardigans!

Sunday, May 26, 2013


Hello! This is one of my new cardigans I bought the other day! It is so comfy and cute. Mom, Dad, and I went to see the new Star Trek this afternoon and it was fabulous! If you haven't already seen it, it is a must see! Have a great Sunday evening. 

Blouse: from Anthropologie last year, but is just a plain black button down
Flats: Madewell and some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn!

Yay it's Friday! Mom and I spent the day together getting our nails done and shopping. I will post my new clothes soon hopefully and I am going to have a whole post on the restaurant we went to, which was fabulous! I hope y'all are having a good Friday and happy Memorial Day weekend!

Homemade Pita Chips

Thursday, May 23, 2013

So as I mentioned yesterday,  Mom and I made pita chips from scratch! They were fabulous and so easy!

Herb Pita Chips
2 garlic cloves, minced
6 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. fresh thyme of 2 tsp dried
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
4 pita breads, white/ whole wheat

This recipe does not have to be exact at all so add as much as you want or don't want. Also, I would recommend whole wheat pita bread because it worked better and had a better flavor than the white pita bread!

Preheat oven to 350

Adding thyme 
Cut pita into 5 strips (approximate) with scissors. Snip end of each strip and separate to make 2 single layer strips. Place pita strips split side up in a single layer on baking sheets.

Stir garlic into oil and brush pita chips. Sprinkle with thyme, salt, and pepper.

Bake until crisp and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Cool.


Brushing on olive oil mixture

Shoes: Pour La Victoire- they are so comfortable! I have them in coral swede too!
Skirt: old gap
Belt: Anthropologie, but I borrowed it from my mom :) 
Bag: my dad gave me this bag for graduation and it is amazing! So many secret pockets!

Happy Derby Day 2013! I love the Kentucky Derby. My family is from Kentucky and we have a party every year. It is so fun to get dressed up and watch the horse races. Maybe one day I will make it to Churchill Downs to see the races in person!
