Favorites for February!

For the Ladies:

Want to spice things up for Valentine’s Day or just add some more sexy to your wardrobe? Then the Celine off-shoulder dress is what you are looking for! It’s short, sexy and the cheetah burn-out is too cute!

Another fun and flirty dress that is perfect for a date or a night out on the town is the Kava dress. It’s a great fit for any body type and the ‘sunset’ print is so stunning and different.

 

For the Men:

We chose the Lines V-neck tee because of the hot color. This orange is fab and the v-neck adds a touch of sex appeal!

The Rattray Navy Jean has the perfect dark wash so that you can dress them up or down. Pair the with the lines tee for a picnic date or a vintage snap western for a night of bar hopping with friends.

Alright ladies and gents, our favorites for February! Hope you all have a sweet Valentine’s Day and are gearing up for a fun Mardi Gras!

Louisiana produces some of the best oranges around and the Satsuma is my absolute favorite! I couldn’t resist sharing this great recipe from the Crescent City Farmers Market. Enjoy!

Satsuma Cane Syrup Pecan Pie


Louisiana citrus season got off to a bit of a slow start this year, but it’s well underway now that both the L’Hoste’s and A&K Citrus are back at the Market. Pick up a few sacks for this Satsuma Cane Syrup Pecan Pie.

Ingredients:

  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • 1-1/4 cups Karo light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup satsuma juice
  • 1/4 cup cane syrup
  • 3 tablespoons grated satsuma rind
  • 1-1/4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pastry shell
  • pecan halves

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, corn syrup, sugar, satsuma juice, cane syrup, satsuma rind, flour, and salt; beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Stir in chopped pecans. Pour mixture into pastry shell and arrange pecan halves on top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes. Cool pie for 8 to 10 hours or overnight. Cut into wedges to serve.

Picks for January!

For the men:

the Costanza eco-fleece sweat pant! perfectly named for a television character who wished he could live in sweats, these are the perfect pair of sweat pants…you won’t want to take them off…seriously!

the Rattray Bomber jacket is a instant classic. For those who aren’t into the leather version this is a great alternative.

 

For the women:

the Turner Hooded scarf is such an amazing piece. It’s a scarf, it’s a hood and it’s super cozy! Great for spicing up any wardrobe!

the Arden Thermal is a staple for the Curator brand and it could make us happier. The cowl neck is just georgous and this beautiful color flatters every skin tone.

So there you have it folks, our perfect picks for January! Hope you had a safe and fun New Years and we can’t wait to see where it takes Branch Out. Thank you for all your continued support!

Love,

Lauren + Thiri
