Sweater: Ann Taylor (Similar here $25) // Jeans: 7 For All Mankind ($90) (Also seen here)
Bag: Ann Taylor (Similar here) // Sandals: Vince (Similar here and here)
Lipstick: NARS (Scarlett Express) // Watch: Michael Kors

This comfy casual look is made up off a lot of deals - I picked up this sweater and bucket bag last year during Ann Taylor's clearance sale.  I got both of them for around $20 each, which is an amazing price for Ann Taylor.  They do have great sales - if you wait for the item to go on markdown.  I also picked up these Vince sandals for more than 50% off.  I had been watching them and noticed a fellow blogger post about them being on sale - and I was lucky enough to find my size.  I have linked up a few very similar options.  Lastly, as I have mentioned before, I look for deals on designer jeans.  Also, Macy's carries 7 For All Mankind - and right now they have some jeans on sale plus and additional 25% off (Discount Code: VIP).

MOLTEN SPICED CHOCOLATE CAKE
Lastly, a little deviation from my fashion posts.  One fact about me is that I love molten chocolate cakes.  A few years, I found this recipe for a spiced molten cake that you can assemble and bake in less than 15 minutes.  It is so simple and easy to make, which is a good thing - but also, not so good, because I end up making it more than I probably ought to.


Recipe adapted from McCormick
4 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate (I use the 4 oz. Ghirardelli chocolate bars.)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 tbsp. Cabernet Sauvignon or other wine 
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup confectioners' sugar (I use about 3/4 cup.)
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
6 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Melt butter and chocolate in microwave for 1 minute. Whisk until completely mixed. Stir in wine, vanilla, and sugar until blended. Whisk in eggs.  Stir in remaining ingredients (flour and cinnamon).

Place in ramekins.

Back at 425 F for 8-9 minutes (It says 15 but if you want them more molten - mine are done in under 10 minutes.)
