Transition to Fall with Madewell

Oh hey! (Insert hand wave emoji). It's been a while since we've done an outfit post! With Fall finally here (or cute outfit season) and Madewell having a big sale this weekend, we thought it was the perfect time!


If we don't say so ourselves, how cute are both of our tops?? :) You can get them both at (you guessed it) Madewell, and they are having a sale through the weekend for 20% off $100 and 30% off $200!


Also, if you STILL haven't gotten yourself a pair of high waisted denim, just trust us and buy some already. They will make your legs look sky high and skinnier than they really are. Need we say anything else?


Paige is wearing a 10" rise from Madewell, but those might be a little TOO high if it's you're first pair. We recommend these if you're getting your first pair :) We've posted about them before, and will definitely be posting about them again. They're our absolute favorite.


Also, Regan's cute watch is from Arvo! We love their watches. So elegant and simple :) Scroll to the bottom for links to our whole outfits!

Burgundy Birks

I jumped on the Birkenstock train a couple weeks ago when I saw this cute burgundy pair in a store and I have to say, I GET IT.

Why I waited so long to get a pair of these magical sandals that make you feel like you're walking on clouds...I have no idea.

I will also say, I've seen a few pairs that were little manly looking (sorry not sorry), and I think that made me a little skeptical.  Also the fact that I'm not hipster enough, but let's just pretend I'm a hipster when I wear these, k?


Summer's basically over, but that won't stop me from taking every last chance to wear sandals that I can get before it's boot season (or Ugg season for me) forever. And by forever I mean March 2018 which seems like a VERY long ways away.  Thank you Utah.



This burgundy color makes these Birks the perfect transition from sandals to fall booties and I am in love! Scroll down for all outfit details, including my baseball hat that matches perfectly. 

Side note: my husband won't let me rock any team EXCEPT for San Diego, so that means I've made it my goal to own this hat in every color - find them all below.  San Diego fans, you're welcome.

Fall Popcorn: White Chocolate and Caramel Corn

If you know us Salty Blondes well, then you KNOW all three of us love a good bowl of popcorn.  You can bet the very first thing each of us registered for when we got engaged was a popcorn popper.  

Our go-to is obviously freshly popped corn with a half a stick of butter and salt (obviously).  Sometimes we like to switch it up and, if we're feeling super UNhealthy, we go for the white chocolate or caramel corn.



WHITE CHOCOLATE POPCORN

This one is super easy.  
1. Pop your corn 
2. Pour about 2 tablespoons of melted butter over
3. Sprinkler with salt and mix
4. Melt about 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips
5. Drizzle melted white chocolate over top and mix
6. Add more salt if desired
Let the bowl sit out until the chocolate hardens or throw the bowl in the fridge for about 10 minutes.

Tip: the white chocolate chips melt best in a double boiler.  We don't have one, so we make our own by boiling a little bit of water in a pan, then setting a glass bowl with the chocolate chips on top, making sure the water isn't touching the bowl.  Stir continuously until melted.  See picture below :)







EASY CARAMEL CORN

1. Pop your corn
2. Melt 2 sticks of butter + 1/2 Cup of brown sugar + 8 large marshmallows or 1 Cup mini marshmallows in pan
3. Stir ingredients continuously until melted and bring to a boil. Boil for about a minute. Keep stirring.
4.  Pour over popcorn and mix

Note: our original recipe calls for one stick of butter, but Paige uses two, which makes it a little less sticky, but obviously more fattening.  At this point though, does that really matter? 








These are both so yummy and perfect to bag up and give out at a Halloween party or even to trick-or-treaters! Let us know what you think in the comments if you try either of these!
