Bust Out the Bold Denim

When it comes to denim - color, fringe, and cool buttons are just a few of the things I'm seeing in my future. We've been seeing the denim with patches trend for a while now (and, yes, I am still into it) but I want to play MORE!

Cold Weather Uniform

Streamline your life, and your wardrobe, when you can. This is my advice to you. Clutter doesn't bring anyone legitimate joy. It weighs us down and frankly makes things more complicated than they have to be. I often have trouble pairing down my closet in the summer.

Blue Velvet

Lana once wrote a song about a girl who wore blue velvet. She croons on about the velvet that was bluer than the night and the girl's eyes, which were also bluer than the velvet she wore. I've always loved the song. Call it self-indulgence, but I connected to it. To me, the song was about me. 

Dad's Classic Old Fashioned

If my father is behind the bar at a party or family dinner you will likely find him smiling while muddling a bit of cherry and orange together in a glass. He is always the bartender - whipping up cosmopolitans, Bloody Mary's, or espresso martinis for friends, but nothing does he make with quite as much excitement as he does an Old Fashioned. 

Flower Power.

I love this simple outfit because the blue flowers in the top play so well with the color of the denim. The throwback detail at the bottom of these jeans is perfect and really helps to add something extra to a simple look.

Creamy Avocado and Lemon Pasta

During the week, when I get home from work, I need meals that are made out of the stuff I always have in my fridge or pantry. For me, that "stuff" is usually a couple of avocados, some lemons, and several half-empty boxes of pasta. Seriously, my pantry is mostly pasta. Isn't yours? 

Kielbasa Pasta with Mushrooms and Homemade Marinara Sauce

This recipe for kielbasa pasta with mushrooms and homemade marinara sauce is delicious fresh from the pot or as leftovers! This sauce gets even better when it's been sitting in the fridge overnight. All the flavors really marinate and blend. Not to say it isn't great straight from the pot - it totally is! Just to say this is the perfect meal to make ahead of time in a large batch.

What I'm wearing this week. | Denim skirts and dainty scarves.

When small square neck scarves started popping up in the accessories section on some of my favorite brand's websites I was super excited. I have always LOVED wearing a neck scarf. It nods back to a different era, one that I am a big fan of, and adds a little personality to an outfit. I am also a huge fan of a higher neckline, and adding a scarf to a blouse or dress where the neckline is lower gives me that same flattering effect.
