F❤vorite Things for March

In like a lion, out like a lamb.  It's my mantra lately to remind me spring is around the corner. Come on, mother nature, we are all ready for you!

A little bleak end of winter pickup is some retail therapy.  Here are my favorite things for March.

1. Simplicity Tunic - It's just a basic striped shirt but it's my new favorite staple.  I've worn it when in winter with a turtleneck underneath or alone for warmer temps.  I generally can't order anything from Modcloth because everything is very short waisted but this tunic is perfect.

2. Ipanema Sandal - Ok I realize this kind of footwear is probably not on the top of your list right now but keep them in mind for summer. I ordered them on a whim before our Dubai trip and wore them all week long. I rarely can find a shoe that doesn't require some breaking in period but these were great. Cheap, comfortable and durable - works equally well with capris, shorts or maxi dresses.  I want them in every color!

3. Cauliflower - I live in Brooklyn so it's probably somehow breaking my contract not to love Kale. We just never got along but meet my new BFF -  Cauliflower.  It had a big popularity boost back when Atkins was all the rage and people swore to me it could be made into mashed potatos (Um, no!)  Thankfully I gave it another try and I'm crazy for it.  Simply cut, toss with a little olive oil and roast in the oven.  It's goooood.  Throw a few browned butter breadcrumbs on top and you've elevated it to a dinner party side.

4. Cheap Orchids - (I'm looking at you ikea!) Affordable, low maintenance, bloom for months and remind me of warmer months.  Why do I always forget about you cheap orchids?  You are my flower booty call that I take for granted. I can never seem to get them to re-bloom once they wither but for $10, I'll take 3 months of pretty flowers happily.

5. Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Geranium- No newsflash here, everyone loves this stuff. I just resisted and clung to my bottle of windex (yes, I windex everything!) for far too long.  I just love the geranium scent. I'm addicted.

Anything new favorites in your life? Please share!

    1. Despite my love of tomato (I could eat those til the cows come home), I can't eat salsa. I know, weird. But i've never even thought to eat it raw..ill have to try that.

  2. Great favorites! That's my favorite scent from Mrs. M, although I also like the lavender hand wash. Those orchids are especially pretty in the clear containers.

      Ikea has this container that fits the orchids perfectly and is a steal at $4.

  3. Orchids are the best in spring months! I find the quality of Ikea cheap orchids surprisingly good compared to those at nurseries and greenhouses. You are right for $10 ($14 here in Canada) I will take 3-4 months of blooms before worrying about getting them to re-spike.

    1. I always have great luck with Ikea orchids. They seem to last way longer than the ones I buy elsewhere. I never thought of buying a whole collection like in the photo but that seems like a great Easter or general spring centerpiece. Maybe an excuse to go back to ikea? :)

  4. I love that tunic! I've been looking for something similiar and I really love the idea of layering with a turtleneck since it's still so frigid! I'm also embracing the cauliflower trend too - I have ton of recipes pinned and next on the agenda is pairing with some curry for a spicy side dish.

    1. Oh i definitely recommend it. I'm thinking of maybe getting the one that is white with black stripes but how many striped shirts does one girl need?

  5. I'm going to have to try this spray when my MM lavender runs out. I love a cheap orchid as I have a black thumb, Trader Joe's is my go-to place! Have you tried tossing the cauli with balsamic and parm after roasting? TO DIE FOR!

    1. Oh I never tried that. Just regular balsamic and cheese? How much balsamic do you use?
