Fall Classics:  Fashion and Fun Food Inspiration 

A striped button down might be the most basic menswear staple, but on a woman it becomes fresh and sexy. 

If this Sateen-Striped Non-Iron Tunic from https://foxcroft.com received a report card it would read, “Plays well with others.” 

You can dress it up or down, and it will never go out of style. 

I loved wearing it with tights.

It was easy to layer with a faux fur vest.

I think it would also look fabulous with a belt. 

It’s an easy top to pair with jeans for a chic weekend look. 

I found this tunic on a shop I follow on Instagram: @foxcroft. They have classic styles for every woman. I follow them to see latest styles, trend alerts, contests, and giveaways. They offer free shipping and returns so ordering is risk-free. This tunic is only one of the great items I found @foxcroft. I’ll be sharing lots of other fabulous finds from this company within the next few weeks. 

Speaking of stripes and fall classics, this is a really easy recipe I make every fall. 

It’s great to bring to a Halloween Party or just serve after dinner as a special treat. 

Striped Delight Dessert

You need: 

1 1/2 chocolate graham cracker crumbs 

1/4 cup sugar 

1/3 cup melted butter 

1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened 

1/4 cup sugar 

2 tbsp. milk 

1 8oz. container Cool Whip 

2 pkgs. instant pudding 

3 1/2 c. cold milk 

Combine crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar and melted butter. Press firmly in the bottom of 13X9 inch pan. Chill 5 minutes or for firmer crust, bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. Cool. 

Beat cream cheese with sugar and milk until smooth. Fold in half the whipped topping. Spread over crust. Prepare pudding as directed on package using 3 1/2 cups milk. Pour over cream cheese layer. Chill overnight. Spread remaining topping over pudding. 

Another easy classic recipe for this time of the year and perfect for a party is this fun fondue.

Zombie Slime Fondue

You need:

9 oz. white chocolate, broken into pieces 

1/2 cup whipping cream 

7 drops food coloring 

1 oz. semi sweet chocolate 

10 pieces gummy candy 

10 jet puffed marshmallows 

2 Granny Smith apples, each cut into 10 wedges 

Microwave white chocolate and cream in microwaveable bowl on high 1 to 2 minutes, or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir until completely melted. Stir in food coloring until blended. Pour into serving bowl. 

Melt semi-sweet chocolate as directed on package; drizzle in spiral pattern over fondue. Starting at center, use a toothpick to draw a line through chocolate to side of bowl; repeat to make several lines. Repeat, but start at outside edge of bowl and draw lines through chocolate to center to resemble spider web.

Serve with remaining ingredients as dippers. 

Hope you are all enjoying this lovely fall season !

  2. I love a good classic striped top, its such a versatile piece. And I love that you styled it with a fur vest, it add just a touch of edge to it. And by the way that dessert look so good, I love cream cheese. Even thou I’m lactose intolerant! Lol
    Have a great weekend!
