Ok, I lied. On my crossover post Monday for at The Blended Blog I said I wasn't ready for Fall Boots but these booties were a must with this free flowing tiered boho dress from Target. I wish Target had a Secret Garden, I picture having tea and feasting on special items, lol. No, this dress is part of Xhilaration's "Secret Garden" line and their floral prints are so pretty and the material loose so you can move easily in all their pieces without compromising style. The muted Fall colors just spoke to me in this pretty boho frock. A hat and my new laser cutout booties from Nordstrom seemed the perfect compliment to this versatile dress that's going to look great with tights and tall boots too.

We are winding down our Summer Series styles with The Blended Blog. Make sure you link up. Always LOVE to see what everyone styles.
 Look how pretty this print is up close and the darling necklace from Forever 21 that I had yet to wear but found it matched so well. 
 BEST PART: This dress is $27.99
The dress is lined and the sheer sleeves add such a feminine vibe

I love to experiment with new recipes and even give them a whirl if there are boo coo ingredients and challenging steps. However, there is just something so glorious about a recipe with ingredients you can count on one hand. I get a certain kind of kitchen satisfaction about only using a few ingredients and the dish still coming out tasty as can be. Yum

My 5 Ingredient Chicken and Pasta has had the most views of all my recipes on YUMMLY so others must love simple dishes as much as I do. I am happy to say this dish has just 4 ingredients and simple directions!!! Many of you may have heard of this one but I use a different dressing than the original called for and cut back on calories with the light version and sugar free jam. We like the flavor so much better. Leftovers taste even better and it's a go to when I'm short onetime. I make sure to keep the ingredients on hand so it can be whipped together as quickly possible in a pinch.

What you'll need

3-4 large chicken breast, cut in large pieces
10 oz Lite Catalina Dressing
1 cup apricot jam, I use sugar free
1 envelope dry onion soup mix

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place cut up chicken in a 8x8 baking dish. In a large Pyrex glass measuring cup or bowl, combine dressing, jam and soup mix and pour over chicken. Cover and bake for an hour. Remove from oven, Let sit about 15 min. after baking. We serve this over brown rice with egg rolls.
With the sauce poured over before it gets covered and goes in to the oven.

We just love the little mini egg rolls and pretty tasty to dip in the saucy goodness!

The in between season dressing can be so hard so today I am over at  The Blended Blog  where I'll show you a lil more of this outfit along with several I've used to transition to the Fall Season where cozy and crisp won't be long friends, it won't be long.

The cycle of seasons is actually super cool, so hop on over to The Blended Blog and see what I've got for ya.
