Denim shopping tips

Curating a denim collection is an important part of building a wardrobe that you love! However, it can be a daunting task and one that most people don’t love. I can’t say that standing in a dressing room and trying on a million and one pair of jeans is my definition of fun. What is fun though is finally finding jeans that work for you and make you feel great. A few tips for denim shopping-

  • Trial and Error- Try and try again. You might buy a pair of jeans, think that they work, and then realize that they don’t. That is totally normal and part of the process. It will help you make a better decision next time- don’t beat yourself up about it- just donate, consign, or give them to a friend. If they don’t fit you well and don’t make you feel amazing, it makes no sense to keep them!
  • Keep your beautiful chin up! You are a gorgeous soul, inside and out, and no pair of jeans shall tell you otherwise! Jean fitting can be so frustrating, but don’t let it get to you. If they don’t fit, they are out. You will soon find a pair that you LOVE that loves you and your body right back! And that is a perfect match.
  • Stick with what works. After a few years of trial and error, I have found that Joe’s jeans, Paige denim, Express, Loft, and rag & bone pants work for my body. Therefore, I will only buy my jeans from those brands! Once you find brands that work for you, the hard part is over. When it comes time to add a pair to your collection, you now know what brands/stores to visit. That makes the shopping process that much easier.

Dark Chocolate Bark

615 615 Melissa Mayer

Dark chocolate, almonds, and coconut flakes

Words cannot explain how easy this chocolate bark is to make! I am not a baker whatsoever, so the fact that I made this is saying something. I love to cook, but baking is just not my thing. However, Hamilton loves dark chocolate so I whipped this up for a Valentine’s Day treat. I was inspired by this recipe from A Cup of Jo, but made my own version. Below are the ingredients + steps! xo Melis

Ingredients (from Whole Foods)

  • 1 bag of dark chocolate chunks
  • Organic shredded Coconut flakes
  • Slivered Almonds

Steps

  • Melt the chocolate chunks over medium heat in a small pot
  • Once melted, stir in a handful or two (up to you!) of the slivered almonds
  • Line baking sheet with wax paper
  • Gently pour chocolate and almond mix on lined baking sheet in a thin layer
  • Sprinkle coconut (as much/little as you want) and a few more almonds on top
  • Lightly place wax paper on top (don’t have it touch the chocolate- just cover)
  • Put in fridge until hard and solid- about 30-45 minutes should do
  • Take it out and break into pieces- the size is up to you!
  • Enjoy some now and store the rest in a container with lid or wrap in plastic wrap
