I Spy {Stripes Done Right}

Don't you love how stripes can add that perfect splash of chic playfulness to your spring and summer looks?!
I know some of you out there are thinking, “No way in “HELLo” will I be putting horizontal or vertical lines anywhere on my body"!!
Stripes can be intimidating but, stripes done right can offer up a sophisticated and flirty statement.

Here is a little Stripe Street Style to inspire…

If the Music is Good, You *Dance* {#Dchic Top 5 Downloads}

Happy Friday lovies!
I'm super excited to have tix in hand to go see the Lumineers in June with one of my fave girlfriends.
The Cold War Kids are opening for the Lumineers and to be honest I'm not sure I even know one of their songs.  So this week I decided to check them out and as luck would have it they actually just released a new album the first of this month and I totally am diggin'!  "Miracle Mile" and "Jailbirds" are my two faves.  Phoenix, as you know I have recently developed a new found obsession for, dropped their album Bankrupt this week.  Their first single, "Entertainment" is still my top pick but, I'm loving "Don't" as well!
Will.i.Am's new album #willpower launched last Friday and last week I shared his collabo with the Biebs but, I have to say his track with Miley Cyrus has my body swaying too!!
The last download this week comes from The Dirty Heads.  A total sweetie told me about this group just this week and I have to say every time I hear one of their songs I just wish I was somewhere with a cold tropical concoction in my hand, big sunnies on, and water all around!

Y'all enjoy and have an unforgettable weekend!

For The Love Of Cooking

  With every passing day we get closer and closer to slipping into our swimwear and hitting the beach, lake, and pools.  So I'm sure I'm not the only one who is trying really hard to watch what I eat and up the daily workout routines.
As you know I am not a huge meat lover but, I do love a good salad.
Eating a salad as one of your meals everyday can turn into boresville extra fast so I am constantly on the hunt for different variations.

I found this colorful salad, sans the green leafy stuff, over at Love and Olive Oil that I think would be just perfect to incorporate into my meal plan. 

Peach and Roasted Vegetable Salad

Stop by Love and Olive Oil for the super easy how to's!

What are some of your favorite salads that break away from the norm?!

If the Music Is Good, You *Dance* {#Dchic Top 5 Downloads}

This week I am actually only bringing ya one newbie and it comes from Will.i.Am and "the biebs"!
I know some of you may not be a huge fan of Mr. Justin Bieber but, I'm also sure there are a few of you out there that are long past your adolescent years that totally have that Bieber Fever.   
No, I do not think JB is some hunka-hunka burning love, but, I will say almost every single song he has put out in the past couple years and EVERY collabo he has done recently I have found myself busting a move like it's the last time I'm going to ever dance again.
So it's no surprise #thatPOWER has had my solo living room dance parties at high this week!
The last 4 songs on the list this week are songs that I love to blast on hot summer days!!

So go ahead hit play and kick your weekend off!!

For The Love Of Cooking {Booziness}

I know last week I skipped on a dish to bring ya a boozy cocktail so let me just go ahead and say I'm sorry but, this week I must serve up another concoction that pairs perfectly with the amazing weather we are having!

I never refuse an offer to sip the bubbly stuff and with the right tequila (cheap "te-kill-ya" is just a recipe for disaster) I will sip a margarita on a hot summer day. 
So to say I hit the brakes like a cute little squirrel just ran out in front of me when I stumbled upon this tasty would be an understatement.

I Spy {Celebs at Coachella}

Last weekend marked the kickoff of  Coachella and per usual all the hippie chic festival attire had me swooning in delight and tossin up a few peace signs! 
Free People is probably one of my all time fave stores to shop and we all know I have one insane love affair with music so you can imagine my obsession with the Coachella Festival!

I was completely the lame-o watching the live feed from the comfiness of my couch Sunday night swearing AGAIN this year that next year I am sooooooo there!! 
One day...One day!
Tons of celebs hit the event every year...
I just love seeing how they embrace their inner flower child.

My vote has to go to the VS Angels, Alessandra Ambrosio,  Miranda Kerr, and Candice Swanepoel for not only the happiest pic of the weekend but their AMAZING attire!

If you missed the fun this past weekend have no worries, weekend #2 kicks off on Friday!

If The Music is Good, You *Dance* {#Dchic Top 5 Downloads}

Did anyone catch SNL last Saturday with the forever hilarious Melissa Mccarthy hosting?
That woman seriously cracks me up!!  Phoenix, a French alternative rock band from Versailles, was the musical group to perform.  Have you ever heard of these guys?  They are new to me but, I instantly became a fan.  "Entertainment" (I've had stuck on repeat) is their first single off their new album Bankrupt, set to release April 23.
Song number two, "Run" by Kill it Kid (another new group to me) caught my attention on a commercial (I don't even recall the advertisement) but, immediately pulled out the iPhone to shazam the tune. 
We all know Kelly Clarkson, her new song "Don't Rush" I love for the pure fact it's bee-boppy and it reminds me of old school 80's country/blues, like K.T Oslen and Bonnie Raitt. 
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis had me with Thrift Shop and no surprise I 'm totally diggin' their second release "Can't Hold Us".  It makes me dance...so it's a win!
Carly Rae, "Tonight I'm Getting Over You"...Just makes me wanna have a girls night on the town with again LOTS of dancing!
A bonus track from non other than my childhood heartthrobs... New Kids On The Block!!
"We Own The Night" is the first track on their newest album "10".
AND...my sweet mama's personal fave off their lastest album (who knew she was such a fan) "Remix".

I hope you enjoy...Crank it on up and Dance!
