mint silk blouse—J.Crew, remixed
gladiator platforms--Simply Vera, remixed
big brown belt--Banana, remixed
Yesterday was the first day in about two and a half weeks that I haven’t had to travel or leave town. I actually caught up on sleep, went back to the office to catch up there, grocery shopped, made a good dinner, and did some (minimal) cleaning up and unpacking.
This skirt is one of my favorite items that I included in the remix and I can’t believe I waited so long to wear it. It’s a fun shape, pretty pattern, and has pockets—always a winner! I had trouble pairing it with something, though. Theoretically, it could literally go with anything. It has purple, orange, and green in it, so you could pair it with any of those colors or their complementary ones (yellow, blue, red/pink) or, of course, a neutral. But it just didn’t look right until I put this blouse that was such a hit before with it. It’s a little matchy-matchy, but I still liked it and thought the belt and sandals toughened up the silky/floral/girly look a bit.
Like I said, I actually went to the grocery and made dinner last night for the first time in forever. It was a super-simple weeknight recipe from Cooking Light: pork chops with two-melon salsa & garlic bread. It was so easy and quick and made with real food—yum. This salsa was watermelon, honeydew, jalapeno, cilantro, red onion, lime juice, and a pinch of salt. It was spicy and delicious. I saved the rest of the watermelon for watermelon margaritas later in the week. :)
