DIY: Pumpkin Spice Lattes

For all you Starbucks lovers out there, this blog post has your name written all over it. Us girls at P+C love a good Pumpkin Spice Latte just like practically every other human out there. Nothing says Fall like this signature drink. Although the original at Starbucks is a classic, dishing out $5 a day to indulge in heaven in a cup isn’t the most ideal situation for the fashionista’s wallet. We need that money to go towards more important things, like bags, shoes, and clothes! 

 

We found two great recipes on Pinterest. One for a Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Latte the other, a skinny alternative!

 

Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Latte

Adapted from Urban Nester

8 tablespoons pumpkin puree
4 tablespoons vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 cups strongly brewed coffee
6 cups milk
8 tablespoons sugar
Whipped cream

  1. Combine milk and coffee and pour into the slow cooker. Whip together remaining ingredients – except the whipping cream – and pour into a crockpot. Mix together and use an immersion blender to get it mixed well
  2. Cover and cook in the slow cooker on high for 2 hours.
  3. Serve with whipped cream

Fall Trends: Denim

We have finally entered into the final phase of summer! School is about to start, vacations are about to end, and the weather will start to get cooler, we can only hope. Summertime is always a good time, but fashion-wise Fall is just simply the best. The sweaters, the boots, the denim!! I am a huge jeans fan and I can only hope that y’all are too! It is so classic and versatile, and if you’re lucky you can get a few wears out of a pair before you have to wash them. (No one needs to know)  Whether you are a bootcut, skinny, flare, or boyfriend fan we have great options to pair with your favorite pair of jeans.

 

For the cooler months, and especially football games and tailgates, boots are a must. We have cowboy boots and booties that you will live in.  When you don’t feel like rocking your favorite jeans you can pair these with dresses or even shorts if the weather permits! We also have to great riding-style boots that look great with jeans or leggings tucked in!

 

 To pair on top of your favorite bottoms a simple tee is all you need.  Any of our PIKO’s will look great with jeans of any color this fall. From short sleeve V-necks to long sleeve tunics we have a variety of colors. Made from bamboo, PIKO’s are the ultimate comfy top that features a loose fit in the torso. Dress for total comfort or make a statement with a great bag, pair of shoes, or statement necklace. Another great tee option would be our Steel the Show! It looks just like a soft grey tee from the front but features a lace floral back. Wear with sticky boobs for a bare back look or pair with a bandeau or cami of your choice!

 

Don’t let the name fool you, but our Denim Summer’s at the Beach dress is another great transition piece! Wear it to all of your Labor Day Barbecues and Back to School events with sandals and wear it with boots and a sweater when the weather starts to cool down. A denim dress is incredibly versatile and with the dark wash and dark embroidery it can work in all seasons!

 

 

We can’t wait to ring in Fall with great fashion. Shop these items online at www.pandcboutique.com or visit us in store! We also have a some last-minute summer pieces that are on sale in store!! Stop in and see us 11-6 Tuesday-Saturday at 3209 Westheimer!

Fall Whites!

Although September is here and August is over, you don’t need to shun your white clothes! The rule is no white after Labor Day, but HELLO rules were meant to be broken. Especially in warmer climates, where it feels like summer all through September and even into October strut your stuff in your white denim.  White tops are timeless and classic so those can definitely stay in your wardrobe. When it comes to those white jeans that you love, keep them out and flaunt them! Pair them with your favorite navy blazer, black leather jacket, or suede ankle booties. As long as the rest of the outfit reads Fall you can still rock them past September 1st , I promise.  Black and White are projected to be huge this next season in addition to gray anything. Pair a great gray tunic or chunky sweater with your favorite boots from now until the end of the year. Plaid is also another great option to pair with white!  Don’t forget about your other white favorites. One of ours is Summers at the Beach Dress, which we will continue to wear into fall with booties and cardigans. Need help picking out what to wear with your favorite white jeans or other white items from Summer? Come in and let us help you find some great options!

Transition Pieces: Summer to Fall

It’s getting to be that time of year, the temperature outside is scorching, yet we are all planning our go-to fall outfits. I love fall fashion but thinking about sweaters in 90+ temps make me feel a little light headed!  My mom always taught me to shop for items that were versatile and carry across more than one season. When I have something in my hand I need to come up with at least one Spring/Summer outfit and one Fall/Winter outfit. Why not get the bang for your buck?? Some current items that we have right now that I love as transition pieces include: Gray Area, Kaleidescope, American Pie, Blushing Bride, Sheer Bliss, and Oui Madame. (Just to name a few)

 

Gray Area is great now over shorts. It is loose and soft, great for high temps. Gray is THE color for Fall though. This top would look great with leggings, leather pants, skinny jeans, you name it! Throw on your favorite boots, short or tall, and maybe even a black fedora or bowler if you are feeling like taking a fashion risk.

 

Kaleidescope is one of our kimonos which features a great graphic print and jewel tone colors. It is great over a swimsuit or casual dress during the crazy August temps. When the weather starts to cool it is great to throw on over your favorite tee or tank with your favorite jeans. You can throw it on over your workout clothes to jazz it up for a lunch date with a girlfriend!

 

American Pie is great now with denim or white shorts. This loose fitting top is breathable in the hot and humid dog days of summer. The embroidered detail is a great boho touch.  Pair it in a few months with your favorite boots, leather jacket, or comfy cardigan!

 

Our sheer tops can make an appearance any season out of the year. It is a great layering piece. Throw on a nude, ivory, or your favorite color cami, tank, or bandeau with any bottom. When the wind picks up throw on your favorite jacket!

 

Our Oui Madame vests are available in Champagne and Floral. These oversized vests are great for summer with your favorite shorts or dress. The menswear inspiration is going to be perfect to take into Fall. Whether you want to make a statement with the Floral or keep it neutral with the Champagne, you will have plenty of opportunities to rock this piece. 

 

 

Shop these items online or stop in store and let us help you style them for Summer and Fall!
