Tropical Print Romper












For those of you that don't know... I will be interning for Show Me Your Mumu this summer in Los Angeles! Excited is an understatement. It as given me an excuse to buy a ton of Mumu from their recent collections. They have been killing it with their new spring prints and silhouettes. I linked some that I have my eye on below. I love this romper because it would be easy to dress up or down and you can wear it off the shoulder or as a tube top. I am thinking about wearing it to a brunch event next week with some wedges. 

I have about two and half weeks of school and I am low key freaking out. I can't wait for all this end of the year craziness to be over. I move out to LA May 27th so I am excited to have some time at home before I leave. Thanks for reading bbys! xx Brianna

Lemon Garlic Salmon


So I have been having this recipe on different types of meat a lot lately and I wanted to share it with you! This is only my second year living in an apartment and I really only learned to cook this year. By no means do I really know I am talking about. I am a 'throw it together' kind of chef haha. This recipe is super easy and quick to make. I usually don't measure when I cook so I apologize for the vague-ness of what I am about say l o l.

What you're gonna need:

Salmon (Thawed - I buy frozen Salmon from Aldi)
Garlic
Lemon
Olive Oil
Garlic Salt
Pepper
Brussel Sprouts

One of the reasons I love cooking this is because it requires very few ingredients. I put my salmon in a pan with olive oil and juice from half a lemon. Then I sprinkle some minced garlic, garlic salt, and pepper over the salmon and top it with two slices of lemon. I preheat the oven to 425 and cook it for about 20 minutes. While that's cooking is when I cut up the brussel sprouts (don't forget to cut off the bottom!) and make them. I heat olive oil with more minced garlic in a pan on medium heat. When the oil is hot I put in the brussel sprouts and some garlic salt. I cover the pan for a few minutes and then let them sautee for another few. This way they get a little softer but still crispy. When the salmon is done, you have a meal! Sometimes I also make cous cous. You can also swap out olive oil for about 2 tablespoons of better to make a butter garlic sauce as it's cooking. I have tried to recipe on salmon, tilapia, and chicken!

Let me know if you try it!

Star Top + Cutoff Levi's










Backpack c/o Rebecca Minkoff | Top | Shorts (similar) | Hat | Boots (similar)

I have so much fomo this week not being at Coachella. Anyone in the same boat? I have been super inspired by all the festival fashion I have been seeing all over Instagram and Instagram stories. I thought this star top + denim is a great casual festival inspired look that you can also wear in "real life." I hate buying things and only being able to wear them once so I always make sure that I am able to pair them with other things in my closet. Adding the right accessories to a festival look can really make it stand out...like this bag and hat and booties. I actually made these cutoffs ($6 mom jeans for the win), but I linked a super similar pair.

Thanks for reading! xx Brianna
