The Monday Rundown: Beginning of Summer Edition

AE Relaxed Boyfit Denim Shortie: I’m so not a shorts girl so this is kind of major for me.  Even though my legs are pretty toned, they’re on the thicker side (thank you dance) and I’ve always been super self-conscious about wearing shorts and, up until recently, even wearing shorter dresses.  I like these, in particular, because even though “boyfriend jeans” usually look atrocious on me, when it comes to shorts, the boy cut makes sense.  They hang lower on the hips and don’t ride up in the thigh area, which is usually all too familiar for me (though I still recommend going one size up).

Anthropologie Vertices Drink Dispenser: There’s something so spa-like about drinking your water from a fancy glass dispenser.  I’ll be cutting up fresh cucumber and soaking them in this container for an extra fancy bonus.

AVEDA Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Color: I love, lovvvve this gorgeous red lip color.  I saw it on a friend a few weeks ago and honestly, it’s a show-stopper.

Truffle Kale Macaroni and Cheese: The food genius, otherwise known as Felicia Sullivan, re-created this recipe on her blog and I nearly died.  This recipe combines three of my favorite things: kale, truffle (anything) and macaroni and cheese.  Now if only I could cook…
