Lunch :: An Easy Family Meal with Van's Foods, #LIVECASUAL, + Lee Jeans

You guys, how Loudmouth-worthy is the statement "make bold moves"?

I knew I would love Casual 4 a Cause as soon as I saw this shirt. And I knew it would be the perfect item to pair with my Easy Fit Frenchie Skinny jeans. I wore this comfy outfit on my birthday for a day of relaxed celebration with my dudes. We'd already partied a couple weeks before, so I was perfectly content boiling noodles at my photog's house and following it up with happy hour at my fave chain for margaritas.

Van's Foods sent me a bunch of different items including three types of pasta, two types of granola clusters, and even some kitchenware to cook with. The Ultimate Cheddar Penne was a little too rich for me, but we LOVED the Creamy Herb & Garlic. I opted to use less butter than the recipe called for, and it was just perfect. I'd definitely pick up this flavor again, especially since it all comes in a box. I'm lazy.

This is B complimenting me on how domestic I am. Kidding.

Anywho, this outfit was soft and stretchy (which is great for birthday calories, which don't count by the way). I'm obsessed with how high-waisted the pants are, and I'm about to throw down some cash for Casual 4 a Cause's Kickstarter because I adore their gift so damn much. (That's good marketing, people. TAKE NOTES.) They also have a hashtag, #LIVECASUAL, which I can totally get behind. Ours is #LIVELOUDLY, by the way. Everyone needs their own hashtag. Get on that shit!

Next on my wishlist? These gorgeous plus-size jeans.

Okay, that's it. Just wanted to pop in and thank these sponsors for their goodies. And thanks to YOU for letting me talk about them. Mama needs money, y'all. Hope you sexy beasts have a great weekend and I'll see you next week with some helpful new content I've been working on (here's a peek). Supes excites!
