Grilled Peach Dessert

This is an easy, low-fat summer dessert with only 4 ingredients!

For one serving, you will need a peach, cinnamon, agave nectar or honey and low-fat vanilla ice cream.
First, slice the peach in half.
Next, grill the peach for five minutes each side, on a preheated grill.
I start with the cut side down, and don't mess with it until you flip it.
This will ensure that you get grill marks.
When the peach is done, it will have slight grill marks, and will be soft to the touch.
Place in a bowl with a scoop of ice cream.  Lastly, sprinkle with cinnamon & agave nectar.

This is a great, easy dessert, and can be made for any amount of people!  Guests will love it, and be very impressed!!

Outfit Inspiration - Rene Russo

Images from Google Images

One of my favorite movies of all time....Major League was on TV when I got home today.
I never realized how beautiful Rene Russo was in this movie!  What a babe!!
Her outfit in this scene is casual 80's style with a sexy librarian feel.
Also, loving her messy, natural looking ringlet curls.

Here is my modern day take on her outfit :

Cable Knit Cream Sweater here or similar here

Button Up Skirt here or similar here

Oversized Round Glasses here 

You can't see her shoes, but I imagine her wearing these...
Lace-up Booties here
Oxford shoes would also be so cute with this. 
See my post on oxfords and loafers here.

Thanks for reading, and hope you have a great day!!

I am sad that summer is almost over, but excited to enter my favorite season, fall!
I have already started making my wish list, and favoring these menswear inspired shoes, loafers and oxfords.

Dolce Vita has nailed this trend with fun colors and embellishments.
You can find both of these at Free People.

Trend - Rhinestone Necklaces

Rhinestone Necklaces are a trend that I have been following/coveting for the past few months.
These necklaces are not just for weddings and special occasions anymore!

Here are a few blogger looks I found on Refined Style:
Neon on watercolor floral

Fancy mixed with a basic staple, a denim shirt

Spray painted white.  You could do this with any color, for a great inexpensive 
statement necklace!

Loving this layered look

Not sure where the blogger necklaces are from, but here are are some I found, if you want to try this look.

 Mixed trend of faux collar with rhinestones from Asos

Vintage from Etsy
This one would look great spray painted!

Neon from Etsy

What are your thoughts on this trend? Is it something you already have or will try??
