Happy Monday, my friends!
We finally reached the high 80s over the weekend. This is what summer is supposed to be like and I am not complaining. The best part of summer is the fact that I get to wear shorts, skirts, as well as skorts, like this one from Zara. I love the gold button detail on this skort. They give a nautical vibe, one of my favorite looks for summer. And I know we love our denim cutoff shorts but what about about a denim cutoff top! The frayed edges on this Zara top adds a relaxed casual feel to this boxy denim shirt. I could seriously wear this outfit every day.
Speaking of summer favorites, a craving of mine in the summertime are light yet satisfying desserts. Very few desserts that I like fit the bill. Popsicles are light and I love them but they’re not quite satisfying. Anything chocolate is super satisfying to me personally, but they are almost always the opposite of light. Enter macarons. They’re light and airy and extremely satisfying. Read more about them below.

So let’s talk about macarons and how much I love them. Is it just me, but every time I see macarons in a fashion post, my eyes totally zero in on them and nothing else seems to matter. I even tried to make them at one point…and failed miserably. That’s why I’m so happy to have been introduced to MacarOn Cafe! They specialize in macarons, hence the name, and they have several stores throughout NYC and over a hundred retailers across North America. And the best news ever is that they ship anywhere in the US and Canada! They use 2 Day Air to ship out these charmingly packaged macaron sets to ensure freshness.
So if you’re planning a party anytime soon, perhaps a bridal shower, a birthday party, a ladies’ get together or even dinner at home with friends, these refined French treats will definitely add a little flair to your event. Visit MacarOn Cafe for details.
