This is such a simple recipe that makes busy mornings super easy. I’ve been making big batches of this and dividing them for the week to grab in the mornings before work – so filling {and healthy – bonus!}

Ingredients

+ ½ cup old fashioned oats (not instant)
+ ½ -3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or water
+ 1 – 2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder
+ ½ tablespoon chia seeds
+ ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
+ ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
+ berries, sliced almonds, almond butter (for topping)

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a container, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Bring out of the fridge in the morning and stir. Add additional almond milk if the mixture is too stiff. Top with berries, almonds, and almond butter, serve and enjoy.

A few images I’ve been pinning lately that have me wanting to take a more neutral, classic direction with my Spring dressing. Skinny jeans {loving Frame lately}, these Steve Madden booties, and light layers from Joie are on constant rotation around here, especially with the little teases of warm weather we’ve been getting!

Around Here

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

01. Enjoying the sunshine. I’m wearing a coat by Mackage and sunglasses by Ray-Ban.
02. Pretty pastel houses lined up in Notting Hill.
03. I’ve spoken about it before on the blog, but Granger & Co. Is one of my favorite places to go {especially for breakfast.} The line is always out the door on the weekends but the wait is totally worth it. Their ricotta hotcakes with honeycomb butter are to die for {and I’m thinking about attempting my own}.
04. Kendall Jenner made me do it {shop Calvin Klein}.
05. More Notting Hill.
06. Love this pretty dessert spread at Granger.
07. I think we still have a long way to go before warmer weather comes to London but this J.O.A. top is getting me super excited for Spring. {Rebecca Minkoff has a super cute and similar black option}.
08. Driving down Regent Street.

I’m personally over the red and pink themed Valentine’s Day clothing and decor — I’m way more into feminine and subtly sexy for February. I’m in major need of a new black blazer {my current one is a $10 eBay find} and I’m eyeing a few from Theory and Helmut Lang. I also just ordered that turtleneck {side note: I’m always so embarrassed when a NastyGal package comes for me at work — I swear it’s not what it looks like!} and I’m excited to wear it with some black denim to channel my inner Parisian.
