Coated

Boho Chic | Santuary Tunic + DL1961 Skinnies | Charleston Blogger Tour | Luci's Morsels :: Denim Blogger
According to all of our wedding-related websites, our big day is 127 days away. That sounds manageable at the moment, but I know the second it drops into the double digits, I'm going to have a meltdown! I think things are under control, but I'm scared that I'm forgetting something - it's too calm right now! 

On to things that I'm much more sure about - jeans. Many times, coated jeans are rough and unflattering, not molding well around curves. These coated skinnies were super comfortable and fun to wear. They were soft and fit nicely. During our Charleston Blogger trip, we had a blogger tour (more below) and we got to borrow clothes from a local boutique for the day! I took the chance to try out a denim company I hadn't previously owned. These are by DL1961 and if these skinnies are any indication, I'll be falling in love with that brand shortly!

7 Layer Sweet Potato Bean Dip

7 Layer Sweet Potato Bean Dip | vegan, dairy free, and gluten free appetizer for Cinco de Mayo | Luci's Morsels :: LA Healthy Food Blog
I live for Mexican food. I can blame it on being a California girl, I suppose. Luckily, my guy is at the same fiesta! After two weeks of delicious Italian food in Rome and Florence last year, we came home and had Mexican food at least four times that first week. I could've handled more too. I'm a fajita lover and my guy is into burritos and good enchiladas. I'm always finding new ways to eat these comforting flavors at home. This seven layer bean dip ended up being a salad topper for me and a soft taco filling for him. I love the idea of these individual servings though. These are plain drinking glasses, loaded with the seven layers. And these tasty treats are dairy free, so they can sit out at a party without the worry of spoiling cheese or sour cream.

Eating My Way through Chicago

Eating in Chicago | Restaurant Recommendations | Luci's Morsels :: Travel Blogger

These "Eating my Way Through..." posts are so much fun to put together. I get to relive the deliciousness and it makes me (almost) ready to travel again! I'd been to Chicago at the end of undergrad, but it was for less than two days and we did not get to experience the city. I knew I had a lot to make up for on my recent trip to the Windy City. I was so excited by all of your fabulous recommendations on Instagram. Those combined with a long list of recommended stops from a dear friend and I knew I wasn't going to be able to do it all on our short trip. My mom and I tried to hit many of the suggested places and discover a few of our own and I think we did a pretty good job. So here are all of my recommendations for food and fun in Chicago!
