An Amazing Salad + Shopbop Sale!

First off, I want to share this amazing salad that we have made twice already this week. I had it at my parents house several weeks ago and couldn't wait to have it at home. I get sooo tired of a basic salad that I just don't even care to eat them. This changes all that and its super easy (no chopping extra veggies!) The one thing that makes it is definitely the dressing, which is from Whole Foods. I had my Mom bring me some last week since we don't have one here! 



BLACKBERRY PECAN SALAD

Romaine Lettuce
Blackberry Vinaigrette 
Gorgonzola Cheese
Glazed Pecans {I actually used regular chopped pecans}
Dried Cranberries

Wash and dry chopped romaine, and top with ingredients!



I served this with Christina's Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin on Sunday night...and Stephen was impressed! Wowza, that tenderloin is a new favorite!! Really, such a fantastic fall meal!

I know I usually don't post back to back shopping posts, but this is too good to skip. Shopbop just started their Friends and Family sale, which is so exciting. 25% off y'all. Some people shop sales for things that they never would buy under normal circumstances, like a fancy dress or tall leather boots. I take these opportunities to stock up on staples! I'm talking jeans, booties, jackets, etc. These are my investment pieces that I do spend more on, but I do like to price shop when I know I am spending a good amount of money on something. When you know you need these things, you can easily coordinate your buying during sales. I picked out some of my favorites below to get you thinking...

I'm secretly obsessed with Sorel boots {and if it ever gets cold enough} I hope I can wear them all weekend long running errands and grocery shopping in comfort, or even just taking the dogs out for a little walk. I love my slim illusion jeans, but my Mom is bragging on the Photo Ready pair...tough choice! I've heard great things about the Spanx leggings and I love the leather touch. And it is hard to pick a favorite between all of these booties. You pretty much can't go wrong!
