So the title of the post says “Wednesday” and today is Tuesday, but we’re planning for tomorrow, so don’t stress. We’ve got a great activity lined up for you and the perfect top to wear.
This tank top is by Sachi favorite TruLuv. It has a cute digital pattern with a lightweight, silky feel and raw chiffon trim. Pair it perfectly with skinnies (any color), white shorts, or cropped leggings. Grab some colorful sandals and an Emi-Jay to finish off the look.
Now that your outfit is all set, get out your agenda and pencil in “Brooks Museum” from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm for tomorrow. It’s time for Wacky Wednesday at the Brooks! This summer, they’re featuring a very cool exhibit called “The Art of Video Games.” In addition to checking out the exhibit, you’ll be able to watch movies in the auditorium or stop by the studio to make your own art. Wacky Wednesday finishes just in time for lunch at the Brushmark or a picnic at Overton Park. Can’t make it tomorrow? You’re in luck, because this event will be recurring weekly through June and July.
This floral tank top from Truluv is too cute to wear only one way. It has criss-cross spaghetti straps and a swing cut. The print has a wide range of colors: blue, mint, burnt orange, taupe, mauve, and black. We’ve given you three options for how to wear it, but we know you’ll find more. Pair it over a lace-trimmed tank with denim skinnies for a relaxed but feminine look. This lacy tank from Daisy Jayne is available in cream and navy as well as taupe. Thanks to the wide variety of colors in the top, you have plenty of bottom options. We’ve shown it here with two colorways of knit short from Tea Collection: navy and dark teal. Whether playing in the park or bumming with a book, you’ll be comfy and stylish in this top, however you pair it.
We’re going galactic for this Ragdoll and Rockets skirt with Truluv tank top. The tie dye, the zipper, the high-low…the details are just out of this world. The accessories have even more details: holographic Nina sandals, cosmic-print Maddyloo hair ties and nebula-blue Baked Beads earrings.
Hey, Sachi Gals, welcome to Foodie Thursday! This is when we post an awesome item you can buy at the store as well as a recipe/local food find inspired by that item. Here we go!
Okay, so this adorable new top from Sachi fave TruLuv totally makes me crave all the nommable junk food. But I’m gonna be good and leave the notsohealthybutohsoyummy stuff where it’s safe – on the shirt! However, most a lot of these goodies can be made in healthier ways, without sacrificing any of the deliciousness. Today, we tackle – the French Fry.
Aren’t these fries gorgeous? I love the paper cone. Since it’s our first Foodie Thursday, I’ll just be reblogging today from the lovely Naturally Ella. I’ve posted the recipe below, but hit this link to find Ella’s original post and helpful pictures. And don’t forget – get an adult to help you when you need it, such as using a sharp knife for cutting potatoes!
Homemade Baked French Fries
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 45 mins
Total time: 55 mins
1 large Potato
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon garlic
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon oregano
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon parsley
salt to taste
Preheat oven to 425˚.
Scrub and rinse the potato before cutting it. Then cut off the ends of the potato. Next, stand it up on one end and cut 1/4″ thick slices from the potato. Take the slices and cut into narrow strips – fries!
Once you’ve cut all your fries, place them in a medium bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Toss it until all the fries are well coated. Spread them out onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper*. Don’t overcrowd the pan- this will result in uneven baking.
Bake for 25 minutes, flip the fries, and then bake for 10-15 more minutes until fries are crispy (35-45 minutes total.)
Nom nom nom your delicious baked fries!
*Don’t have parchment paper at home? Cut open a brown paper lunch bag instead!
