With the recent heat wave we’ve been experiencing in New York, I haven’t been wanting to bake for my family as much I normally do. And my kids were getting upset with me for not letting them eat all the store-bought frozen desserts that their friends in the neighborhood regularly enjoy. So we came to a compromise and decided to make our own popsicles – that way I could control the ingredients to ensure they were healthy & they would still feel like they were getting a special treat. I bought these BPA-free molds & we have since used them to make fudgesicles, fruit pops & orange creamsicles.
It’s important not to take fashion too seriously, so I try to challenge myself to have more fun with my wardrobe, play around with trends & take risks. I’m not 100% certain I can pull off a neckerchief, but I love the classic Grace Kelly-esque look of a silk scarf knotted at the neck. I’ve been hunting at local thrift shops & antique stores for a vintage version, but also just ordered this black patterned one. I plan on tying it like this and wearing with a striped top or crisp button-down. (This cotton one is another good solid-color option for summer.)
