Monday Blues

Confession: I have a thing for coats. Having grown up in Chicago, I know the value of a solid winter coat and also the value of a good looking wool coat for those not-as-frigid days. There is something so cool about seeing someone whose coat adds to their look. Enter: this gem of a coat from J. Crew. I stalked it for weeks, waiting for it to go on sale, for my size to come back in stock, for it to be on sale and in my size. One day, it randomly worked out and I got this coat for 30% off. I knew I wanted an office appropriate coat, but I also wanted something that wouldn't age me. So, I thought this coat was a happy medium of being sleek and work-appropriate, but it being navy instead of black with the piping kept it young and fun. This coat also has a belt, but I like to wear it open to take advantage of the movement of it.

Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Chocolate chip banana anything is pretty much my favorite. Bread, muffins, shakes, all so good. I have been making these muffins for a while now, but I usually have three or so recipes open in different tabs, then mix and match the ingredients that I think make baking sense. Last time I made these treats, I decided to document my process and share it with you all. These muffins are soft, fluffy, and non-vegan approved.
