Honeydew Smoothie With A Twist

Honeydew Smoothie With A Kick I Adorned With Love

I’ve never had the discipline for juice cleanses. No solid food for days? No thanks. I am, however, a big believer in incorporating juices and smoothies into my diet. When I’m not buying them at juiceries around LA, I’m making them at home with my Nutri Bullet. I generally keep the ingredients simple, combining standard greens like spinach and kale with some of my favorite fruits, but when Williams-Sonoma invited me to partake in their “Not Your Typical Smoothie” challenge, I jumped at the chance to get a little more creative. The goal was to create a smoothie that was uniquely different from something you might normally find, so I set out in search of a couple of ingredients that felt a bit unusual. My picks? Beans and avocado. Apart from the obvious health benefits of each (including fiber, protein and iron, to name a few), they provide a rich and creamy consistency that goes down easily, but is substantial enough to leave you satisfied. I had my reservations about gambling with such an unusual combo, but the result was surprisingly delicious. And if I hadn’t made it myself, I wouldn’t have known they were even part of the mix. Here’s the recipe I came up with:

Ingredients

1/2 cup chilled cannellini beans
2/3 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
2/3 cup vanilla almond milk
1/2 juice of a lemon
1 1/2 cups sliced honeydew
2/3 cup spinach
1 avocado
1 frozen banana

Instructions

Place all ingredients into a blender (I used my Nutri Bullet, but Williams-Sonoma offers a great selection of blenders here). Blend until smooth and serve immediately.

Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding - a healthy breakfast recipe.

I always assumed that as I got older I’d outgrow the days of ordering indulgent dishes for breakfast (or really any meal for that matter). But it turns out my sweet tooth is prominent as ever, and so is my lack of discipline. I’m coming to terms with the fact that I may never mature into the girl who “craves” salads, but since I’m a relatively healthy eater during the week, I cut myself some slack once the weekend rolls around, especially since brunch is one of my favorite ways to celebrate the days off. I typically alternate between cereal and oatmeal for breakfast at home, but since that routine can quickly turn bland, lately I’ve been spicing things up with other guilt-free alternatives. This Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding is one of my recent favorites (no surprise there with “pudding” as part of the title), but it’s actually packed with healthy ingredients, meaning that even though it’s technically a breakfast recipe, the flavor is sweet enough to double as a healthy option for my dessert cravings.

Sweater Weather

Cozy casual wear I Adorned With Love

Sweater: Brothers On The Blvd, Tee: Brandy Melville, Jeans: Citizens of Humanity, Sneakers: Forever 21 (similar here), Bracelets: Madewell

Growing up in Southern California, it can almost feel silly stocking up on sweaters and coats, but that changed for me recently when my boyfriend accepted a job in San Francisco – a city so notorious for fog, that it has its own Instagram account. I was naive to think that my version of “outerwear” in Southern California would suffice during my visits up north. Let’s just say my first trip up was a miserable awakening, involving cold wind and frizzy hair. Needless to say, it’s a different ball game from the weather that I’m used to, but with each visit, I’m more prepared than the last, and it’s actually been fun to invest in heavier layers that are suddenly practical, like this knit cardigan that makes you feel like you’re wrapped in a cozy blanket throw.

Leather Details

Leather Details I Adorned With Love

Red 23 Jacket: Brothers On The Blvd, Tee: Equipment (similar here), Skirt: H&M (similar herehere  and here), Heels: Express

To be honest, I bought this skirt with the sense that it might never actually get worn. I know that sounds weird, but it felt edgier than my style at the time, so although I loved it, I wrote it off as one of those pieces that I may never actually make use of (a bad habit I am working on!). Thinking back on that now is funny because it’s become one of the most versatile pieces I own. In fact, it changed my feelings about wearing leather, and I’ve been adding it into my wardrobe wherever I can now – boots, purses, leather trim, you name it. It’s no surprise then that this jacket had my name written all over it. I love a draped jacket to begin with, but the leather panels on the sleeves were what sealed the deal.

Loose Trench Coat

Loose Beige Trench Coat I Adorned With Love

Trench Coat: Sheinside c/o, Dress worn as a top: American Apparel, Jeans: Citizens of Humanity, Boots: Steve Madden, Purse: Old Navy (sold out, similar here & here), Bracelet: Gorjana c/o

This past October, I put together a holiday wish list that included a few pieces of clothing I’d been hoping to add to my closet, including this trench coat. I couldn’t stop thinking about all of the ways I wanted to style it, so I was pretty excited when it finally arrived in the mail. I was planning to layer it over a minidress with a pair of strappy heels for a chic holiday date night look, but the colder than average night time temperatures had a different plan in mind, and I soon realized how impractical that was. Still, since I loved the way it looked with the high neckline of the minidress, and in my stubborn refusal to find another option, I bunched the dress up and wore it as a top instead. Pairing it with some black skinny jeans and boots was a more realistic alternative, and I actually loved the way it turned out, with the trench being the focus of an otherwise all black ensemble.

Relaxed In Rails

Rails Hunter Button Down I Adorned With Love

Rails Button Down: Brothers On The Blvd c/o, Tank: StyleMint, Jeans: Citizens of Humanity, Booties: (similar here and here), Purse: Old Navy, Bracelets: Madewell

If you’re in the market for a high quality flannel made from some of the softest cotton you’ll ever come across (seriously, you could sleep in it), then look no further than Rails. They’re a celebrity favorite, which is no surprise to me or anyone who owns one, because the quality exceeds any other flannel I’ve worn. They come in a variety of colors, too, which makes choosing just one a difficult task. But I finally settled on this newer style since I’d never seen it before and loved the way the colors popped. In the few weeks that I’ve owned it, I’ve worn it so much and have received so many compliments that I ended up adding this one to my Christmas list. Although they stand perfectly on their own, I think they look great unbuttoned and layered over a dress or tank. They’ve been a cozy addition to my day-to-day outfits this winter, but I’ll be just as excited to pair them with denim shorts once things start to heat up again.

The Last Of Fall

Neutral monochromatic look I Adorned With Love

Coat: Forever 21 (on sale), Sweater: Old Navy, Jeans: J Brand, Shoes: Converse

It’s funny – these photos seem to have fall written all over them with the colored leaves scattered all over the cobblestone streets, but this was one of the coldest days by far during our time in New York, and felt much more like an official transition to winter. I braved the weather just long enough to snap these photos, before immediately rushing back to our apartment to layer up with boots, gloves and a chunky knit scarf. Even though I think of an all white monochromatic look for summer, there is something clean and crisp about the color that just seems to belong with winter. And throwing a camel coat on top made it feel perfect for this transitional time of year.

Winter In The West Village

Winter Fashion I Adorned With Love

Coat: Aritzia, Sweater: Nordstrom, Skirt: H&M, Scarf: Aldo (similar here), Socks: Forever 21, Gloves: ASOS, Booties: Similar here, Bag: Old Navy (sold out, similar here & here), Lipstick: Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in “Aubergine – eggplant”

While I don’t like having family as far away as New York, I do love being able to visit them. My brother didn’t make it home for Thanksgiving this year, so I convinced my boyfriend that we should take a trip there instead. We thought it would be fun to switch things up by ditching the conventional hotel stay for a different experience, opting instead for an Airbnb rental, and I’m so glad we did. I’ve always loved the charm of the West Village (probably because it’s one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city), and because there aren’t many hotels in the immediate area, I knew that renting an apartment was the only way to guarantee a stay in the heart of it. I think our decision to live like the locals was really what made the difference, because we both agreed it was one of our favorite New York trips. It was also some of the coldest weather I’ve ever experienced (hello, 27 degrees!), but despite the freezing temperatures, it was fun to bundle up in clothing I don’t normally get the chance to wear, and experience a true winter on the East Coast.

All black outfit featuring a mesh penel skirt by Fevrie

Cami: Madewell (similar here), Skirt: Fevrie c/o, Necklace: Gorjana, Bracelet: Gorjana c/o, Heels: Express, Clutch: similar here, Lipstick: Lancome in “Lucky Kiss”

If you follow my blog, you’ve probably caught on to the fact that I try to avoid short-lived trends, instead focusing on classic pieces (and colors) that can be worn for years to come. This isn’t to say that I don’t love a good trend, though, so when I can sneak one into an otherwise classic look, I consider it a major win. This skirt offers exactly that. The mesh paneling gives it a modern, edgy feel, but the black pencil silhouette is a timeless one. Fevrie is filled with endless options just like this, and I’ve teamed up with them to give one lucky winner a $50 gift card to their site! To enter, head on over to my Instagram. In addition, they’re offering 40% off your entire order from now through 1/31/15 with the code: adornedbyjenna

2014 Holiday Gift Guide For Her - Under $50

1. I’ve been drawn to all things copper lately, so it was love at first sight when I spotted these Moscow Mule Copper Mugs. (Free shipping on www.nordstrom.com)

2. I love the way antlers bring an outside element into the home and these Faux Deer Antlers in silver add a fun, modern touch.

This DRINK box, complete with gourmet hot chocolate ingredients and a festive pashmina, would be perfect for cozying up this holiday season. (P.S. – you can enter to win one here!)

4. Scarfs are undoubtedly useful during winter, but I wear them surprisingly often during warmer months, too. They look just as great bundled over a heavy jacket as they do layered on top of a tank (like I did here). You can’t beat the price or endless color options of this one. (Free shipping on www.target.com)

5. Gold bangles are an accessory staple and Madewell makes some of the best in my opinion. I love the look of these Hammered Bangles. (Free shipping on www.madewell.com)

7. This Dwellstudio Giraffe feels youthful and sophisticated all in one. It reminds me of something you might find in the Jonathan Adler collection; only this one is a fraction of the price.

8. If you’re familiar with Kat Tanita from With Love From Kat, then you might already know of her recent travel collection collaboration with GiGi New York. These leather luggage tags come in a variety of colors and are one of my favorites from the collection.

10. My brother gave me the Humans of New York book as a gift last year and it immediately earned a spot on my coffee table. It’s filled with funny and moving quotes that truly capture the spirit of humanity.

11. These Square Lacquer Trays serve endless functions (I use mine for jewelry and nail polish storage) and I love the idea of monogramming them for a more personalized gift.

12. If I had endless space in my kitchen, I would own these Milkglass Cake Stands in every color possible. I own one in white (seen here) and I love the vintage feel they add to any cake presentation.

13. It’s always wise to keep thank you notes on hand and it doesn’t get cuter than saying it in French with this Merci Set.
