avocado ice pops meet nautical stripes

This week has been absolutely crazeballs, you guys! But finally, I have an outfit for you... from last week. Like I mentioned previously, Purple Week has been moved to next week, so send in those purple outfits to to be featured! I'll be talking submissions throughout next week, too.

Work has been hectic, and I've been trying to train myself to wake up earlier to work out in the mornings before trekking off to the ol' job. I found that a lot of the time, I skip exercising after work because I'm just so freaking tired after spending 8 hours behind a desk. So, working out when I'm still fresh and new (and too groggy to make a compelling case as to why I shouldn't be on the elliptical at this hour) should help me stick to my "get healthy!" regime. Wish me luck!

And now, a pretty straight-forward and basic OOTD:

top, j.crew
cami, cotton on

jeans, gap
sandals, lauren by ralph lauren
bangle, kate spade
evil eye rope bracelet, kiosk

skull ring, ebay

gold ring, f21

You can't tell by the way I'm dressed, but it has been in the triple digits over here, temperature-wise, for the past few weeks. Whenever I'm not freezing in the office, I'm broiling outside. It's ridiculous. But for those of you who are also suffering from "it's way too damn hot"-itis, here's a cool remedy:

Avocado ice pops. I know it sounds weird, but I swear that they are delicious and absolutely refreshing. The recipe is simple, too.

2 avocados, pureed
1/2 cup sugar dissolved and boiled in 1 cup water, then cooled to room temp
1 tablespoon lime juice

Mix it all together in a blender or food processor, scoop into popsicle molds, and freeze. A perfect "see ya later, summer!" treat.
