How To Style The Printed Slip Dress With Style Lullaby

The slip dress is one of the year’s most versatile pieces – you can dress it up or down by playing with layers, and whether you’re going for a grunge, boho or classic look, it effortlessly translates into different styles with the help of accessories. Some of our favorite ways to rock a slip dress are over a cropped t-shirt or paired with an oversized cardi. Blogger Sharon Wu from Style Lullaby brought this 90s fave into 2017 with a washed out white jacket and heels. Check out Sharon’s look below featuring the AEO Printed Slip Dress, and if you love her style, you can find her past post here!

Shop the Look: Printed Slip Dress | Denim Jacket

What Inspired Sharon’s Look:
“I’m usually not one for too many prints, but this dress stole my heart the moment I saw it. Firstly, the eyelash lace trim reminded me of the perfect bralette I’ve been looking for to layer under my cozy sweaters! This type of lace is just as flattering on this little number. I can wear an oversized sweater over it, or opt for a knit cardigan… but for this look, I chose to wear AEO’s white denim jacket from last summer’s collection. Since the dress is black, I wanted to bring out the feminine florals & brighten up the look a bit. Lastly, the dress and jacket pairing makes a fairly simple outfit, so I dressed it up with a statement pink bag and nude heels.

Until the sun starts to shine again, I’ll be wearing this dress under my favorite cardigans and sweaters. I love versatile pieces that I can easily style with other loved items in my wardrobe. This one is definitely my latest favorite. Not only is it comfortable to wear and super lightweight, it’s also a fantastic transitional piece from Winter to Spring!”

National Strawberry Ice Cream Day: No-Churn Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwiches

Our good friend Erin, the blogger behind The Almond Eater, is back again and celebrating National Strawberry Ice Cream Day with us! For more from The Almond Eater, check out her recipes herehere, here and here

Hey, hey, hey–happy National Strawberry Ice Cream Day! I know, ice cream day in January? Who thought that up? To be honest, I’m not mad about it. Though I’m a year-round iced coffee drinker, I tend to gravitate toward warmer foods during the colder months, which leaves me missing some of my favorite cold foods like ice cream! I know a lot of people who drink smoothies in the winter, so why not eat ice cream too? It’s baaaasically the same thing except, well, better.

The awesome thing about this recipe is that you don’t need a fancy shmancy ice cream maker–nope! This no churn strawberry ice cream is just that: no churn. One of these days I’m sure I’ll cave and purchase an ice cream maker, but until then I’m going to keep doing things this way because it works and it’s GOOD. ….and because I feel like the majority of people out there don’t own an ice cream maker, but maybe that’s just me.

National Strawberry Ice Cream Day No Churn Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwiches

ANYWAY, let’s talk out this ice cream recipe real quick so you can see how easy peasy it is. You’ll heat the strawberries and sugar over the stovetop essentially until the strawberries turn into a sweet strawberry compote. Then you’ll let them cool off while you whip the whipping cream. Whipping the whipping cream (<–hate that I love saying that) requires a liiiiittle bit of patience, but nothing crazy. Five minutes, max. You got this.

So yeah, you’ll whip the whipping cream until stiff peaks form and then you’ll add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla, fold the strawberries into the whipped cream and BOOM that’s it!! You freeze it to form hard serve ice cream for these ice cream sandwiches, or you just eat it straight up like the ice cream-obsessed person you are.

The trickier part is getting the ice cream sandwiches to actually look presentable. If you make this recipe, PLEASE tag me on Instagram @thealmondeater so I can see your pretty creation and how you one-upped me in that department.

These no churn strawberry ice cream sandwiches are LEGIT and you need them, even if it is the middle of winter.

National Strawberry Ice Cream Day No Churn Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwiches

Recipe

Ingredients

For the ice cream:

  • 1 lb. fresh or frozen and thawed strawberries, chopped
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the cookies:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions

For the ice cream:

  1. Place the strawberries and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to a simmer and use a wooden spoon to break down the strawberries, forming mashed strawberries. Simmer for five minutes or so.
  3. Remove from heat and set aside, allowing mixture to cool completely.
  4. While mixture is cooling, make the ice cream.
  5. Place heavy whipping cream in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer for about 5 minutes, allowing the cream to form stiff peaks. Tip: mix on low for about 2 minutes, and then on high for the final 2-3 minutes.
  6. Once peaks have formed, add the condensed milk and vanilla and mix until everything is combined.
  7. Fold HALF of the strawberries into the whipped cream mixture and transfer to a baking pan.
  8. Pour the rest of the strawberries on top and stir so that there are some swirls and some strawberry chunks.
  9. Cover pan with aluminum foil and place in the freezer for at least 6 hours, but preferably overnight.

For the cookies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Cream butter and sugar together in a separate bowl; add eggs and vanilla and stir to combine.
  4. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients and then, once everything is mixed, stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  5. Scoop dough out a spoonful at a time and transfer to a baking sheet.
  6. Place cookies in the oven and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until cookies are harder around the edges but still soft in the middle.
  7. Transfer to a cooling rack and cook completely before making the ice cream sandwiches.

For the sandwiches:

  1. Scoop ice cream out onto a cookie and then place a second cookie on top, carefully smashing it down on the ice cream.
  2. Repeat this process until cookies are done. You will have ice cream leftover, but I don’t think that’s a problem!
  3. Place cookies on a plate or baking sheet and back in the freezer for at least an hour, allowing time for everything to harden and solidify.

MOVE With Fo Porter

Dressed in our Chill. Play. Move. Collection, #AerieREAL girl Fo Porter shows us how she MOVES in her Aerie. “I tried Pilates for the first time, about 6 years ago, I absolutely loved it! My next door neighbor at the time (who is now my mentor and close friend) was the one who had been training me over the years. Having her kick my butt in the studio and seeing my body transform always kept me coming back!” Read on below for more of Fo’s fitness tips, shop the Chill. Play. Move. Collection, and more!MOVE With Fo Porter

How does your regular workout help you throughout your day-to-day life?

My two ultimate favorite ways to work out is Pilates and hiking, both benefit me in SO any many ways! Pilates is where it’s at, it’s toned my body, core and my posture is incredible. I feel strong from deep within not just on the surface muscles. Hiking not only contributes, cardio wise, but it helps me to think and clears my mind. I can put on a good album and get lost (in the best way possible!) in my atmosphere, not to mention having the visuals of a hike, “one with nature”, type of thing, also helps to take my mind if the workout part!MOVE. With Fo Porter

What makes Pilates stand out from any other workout you’ve tried?

What makes Pilates stand out from most work outs I’ve ever done is the strength I’ve gained from deep within my core. I’m the strongest I’ve ever been because of Joseph Pilates method and style. It’s beautiful how much you can do with your body and how much your body can transform from an hour long work out made up of  20/30 moves, 8-12 times. I walk out of the studio feeling more poised and taller then when I came in.. I’m obsessed!MOVE. With Fo Porter

How do you stay motivated on days you would rather be doing something else?

Ohhhh boy! To be perfectly honest, just getting out of the house is first and foremost. Trust me, there’s days where I’m just so tired that I don’t feel like doing a damn thing! Once I get my butt out of that door I feel so much better, almost instantly. The power of nature and being outside consumes me.. When I’m really struggling, there is a BEAUTIFUL hiking trail/ neighborhood by my house that I love to wonder. If I’m feeling totally out of wack I’ll force myself to hike up, taking it easy…MOVE. With Fo Porter

What is your favorite Aerie product from our Chill. Play. Move. Collection?

Awe man!! You can’t ask me that! Every single piece has a special place for me.. Ask the stylist on set, all you heard out of me, “OMG!! When does that come out?! OHHHHH, I loooove that!! This is soooooooo comfy! I need this in every color, I’m serious!!” There’s no way I can possibly pick just one, I genuinely love it all!MOVE. With Fo Porter

What advice do you have for girls who want to become active but don’t know where to start?

My advice to girls/ women is to take it one day at a time. Simple as that.. Its great to have a goal but don’t beat yourself up trying to get there. Just worry about what you’re going to do with your body today, be in the now. Try something new, don’t be afraid of what your beautiful body is capable of. Don’t be afraid to try a new class, a different hiking path or a whole new work out method. Most of all, start by fuleing your body the proper way, with cutting back on the bad foods whatever it may be (and you know exactly what I’m talking about!). Start replacing them with better choices and options. Even if it’s just changing up to having a yummy salad at lunch instead of that gourmet sandwich you love. Trust me it sticks in a way where if you can change one meal or snack option a day, it becomes easier to diceplne yourself in the long haul. Baby steps and one day at a time.. Remember to always love the skin your in, cause it’s all you got and all you will ever get, make the most you can of it!MOVE. With Fo Porter
