It was a bit cooler this past weekend, so I put together this look for a Friday night casual dinner and drinks.
I still can’t get over how much I love these jeans. They were definitely a splurge but are so much nicer than any other pair of white jeans I’ve ever owned and wash so nicely when, inevitably, I spill something on them.
Grey and white will always be one of my go-to summer combos!

I’m definitely one who will snack on whatever is around me, so I’ve been trying to make a big batch of healthy snacks to always have on hand.
Since I seem to have lost my food processor blade (seriously, still not sure how that is possible, but I can’t find it anywhere!), I needed something that could be mixed by hand but still sticks together.
Luckily, coconut flour makes a great binder–it absorbs liquids like crazy! If you had a food processor (and a blade!), you may get away using a little less water as a binder.
Coconut Fig Balls
Makes about 1 dozen
6 dried figs, chopped
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup almond butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons honey, softened
2 tablespoons shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
2 tablespoons water
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until dough sticks together when pressed with fingers.
Roll into balls and place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Place in freezer for at least one hour.
Remove and eat immediately, or store in fridge.
Time: 70 minutes, with freezing time
Curated boxes are such a fun treat to subscribe to so when POPSUGAR sent me this Must Have Box to try, I jumped at the chance to share it with you all.
The POPSUGAR Must Have Boxes are a monthly subscription box filled with lifestyle, beauty, fashion, and food items curated by the POPSUGAR editors, one of my fav lifestyle blogs. Each box costs $39.95 if you pay monthly, or you can save up to $25 if you purchase a 6-month subscription.
Here’s what was in the June box:
Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes ($9 value). These will make the perfect travel companion and the packaging is adorable. Plus, I love that they have coconut milk and kale extract.
NCLA Born on the 4th Nail Lacquer ($16 value). I can’t wait to try this for 4th of July festivities–it’s perfect!
Hat Attack Neutral Diamond Print Sarong ($58 value). This was my favorite item in the box. It’s a great size and while I can see myself wearing it as a swim cover-up as intended (see graphic below), I think I’ll get much more use out of it as a lightweight scarf.
Ridley Games Who Am I? ($13 value). This game was a fun addition and looks very simple to play, which is always a bonus.
Sisters of Los Angeles Cheers Gold Bottle Opener ($12 value). Our go-to bottle opener is getting a little worn out, but this one is so pretty that I’m hesitant to use it! It’s definitely sitting pretty on the bar cart for now.
Knock Knock Are You Ready (For Your Close-up?) Compact ($10 value). This was probably my least favorite item but I know it will come in useful in my purse.
Pressels Sriracha Pretzel Chips ($1.29 value). These were delicious, though I probably wouldn’t purchase them on my own.
Total Value: $119
