Lani Loves: Super 

 

What I am loving this week.

Or what I just bought.

More often than not, both.

 

Meet the sunglass version of my glasses by Super. Shiny. Neutral. Pleasing to the eye in all ways.

 

I want these in my life.

A Cool Mom Dress (Yes, They Exist)

Above: Ace and Jig dress via Covet and Lou, Isabel Marant Crisi boots, Jerome Dreyfuss bag, Club Monaco belt (old)

 

See, I told you cool mom dresses exist. This number from Ace and Jig is comfy. Stylish. Added bonus, the pattern is a nice deep blue that hides stains from dirty little toddler fingers. Mom for the win. 

Another super comfy trend I am digging (seen on all the stylish ladies in NYC last weekend)....sneakers as cool wear, not athletic wear. Not so much the wedge Marant sneaker, though they are still around and kicking, but B&W Nikes (saw tons of Roshe), old school New Balance, classic Vans, or very fancy sneakers, they all looked amazing. Your feet can thank me later.

Who: As in, who am I listening to. Jack White, Lazaretto. Rock god. Secret boyfriend. 

What: As in, what went down this week/end. Much needed girl & shopping time with some wonderful friends. Picked up Frame Le Garcon jeans (seriously, OMG comfortable denim) and a new Killian scent, Sacred Wood. There are a couple new Killian scents coming out next week that I am dying to try too. Good scents just make great sense. 

Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about. 

Local brainchild/app Boutikey from Tiana Haraguchi launched ecommerce at http://www.shopboutikey.com/ further expanding your local shopping options on the internets.

CSA Cooking Totally Unplanned, Totally Delicious: Panko Baked Fish Tacos W/Pico

 

It really hit home that it was fall when my summer CSA ended abruptly. Never fear, I have the fall CSA too, and I am read to get cracking on some recipes that make the most of this season's bounty. Thinking about lots of butternut squash and apple cobblers.

I have one more summer-esque recipe for you, great for those last tomatoes kicking around. This fish taco actually batters the filets in panko and then bakes them- a healthier alternative to the infinitely delicious fish fry. While your at it, keep things simple with a pico on top. Doesn't get any better than those two, layered up on a corn tortilla, with some sour cream and lime? Well, it could get better with a margarita, but what isn't improved by a margarita?
