Simple Stripes + Leather Skinnies.

Every Thursday is homemade pizza night at my house. Its our way of winding down from the week and easing into the weekend. I always have some fresh dough on hand, prepped ahead of time. I usually make a large batch, then throw some in the freezer for later. We find it weirdly relaxing to knead out dough and chop up toppings together. Throw in some music and wine; bonus points for a cheap date night. (full disclosure: I definitely wear a full-on apron while doing this…though I hope the affect its more Ulyana Sergeenko than it is Grandma…).

This week however, with my swimsuit wish list growing ever longer, I opted for a lighter choice. We still rolled out the usual thin crust amazingness for TDF, but for myself I attempted my first Cauliflower Crust Pizza. The results: Tastebud Heaven. I was sincerely surprised to find that a cauliflower could actually resemble the likeness of chewy, crispy dough! My google search produced this recipe as ‘the best cauliflower dough’, the blogger whose site I found it on was so enthusiastic about the results, I had to try it. This recipe did require extra prep time however; shredding an entire head of cauliflower florets by hand. Obviously a food processor has now made the wish list. I also subbed out dried herbs in place of fresh rosemary, which made for major flavour and aromatic satisfaction. I topped my baked Cauli-Dough with some chopped grilled chicken, kalamata olives, artichokes, some melty brie, then tossed on some fresh arugula when it came out of the oven. A delicious and light alternative to keep enjoying our pizza date night…while I add some more swimsuits to the wishlist…

Speaking of wish lists, now that spring has finally arrived, I can get serious about making some spring/summer additions to my wardrobe. I always like to look ahead a few months to see what events are on the spring/summer schedule (eg: weddings, girls wine weekend getaways…etc.). Then I compile wish lists of possible looks on my favourite online sites. I now consider myself a pro online shopper. Actually going to stores has now become painful. Lets face it, shopping at major mall/outlet destinations, usually requires an elbows out approach. I buy everything online…clothes, makeup, doggie winter booties… I like that I can sit with my possible purchases for awhile. Compiling a list then stepping away for a little bit before making a purchase allows for a very seamless editing process.

I always like to include a couple basic pieces on every shopping list. Being able to mix one simple piece a variety of ways is key to building a wearable wardrobe; like this striped t-shirt I am wearing in this post. An easy t-shirt like this will go from leather skinnies to boyfriend jeans, to this seasons sweet mini skirts all while maintaining stylistic integrity. Sometimes its the simplest piece that pulls a look together best…
