Why: This is actually a fall remix of an outfit I wore and loved for a summer wedding. I wore the skirt and booties then with a sleeveless peach lace top. This time I chose a longer sleeved peach top and added a scarf to stay warm. I’ve found that’s a great way to get use out of my more “summery” pieces in the cooler months — pick one element from an outfit I loved in the summer, like this skirt, and add different pieces more suitable to the new season.
What’s your favorite trick for wearing pieces year round?
For Ross’s birthday we went to Chefusion for dinner — and oh my goodness. It was amazing. My favorite was a tie between the lobster croquettes and the lava cake, Ross was crazy for the mussels. It made me thankful for the ability to taste — and how God gave every single thing in the universe a way to appeal to each of our five senses. So crazy and wonderful. This happy little guy joined Ross and I on our run earlier this week — my husband was blissful “owning” a dog for a half hour. And okay, I was too. Unfortunately he belonged to a man who was working on a house nearby — if he lived in the neighborhood we would’ve asked to pick him up every time we go running! A grocery store in town puts a coupon on the rosters at every Packer game. This week it was for free bananas, which of course lead to some gluten free banana bread! I think the best part about it was how it made our whole apartment smell amazing — makes me want to have a loaf in the oven at all times!
