I am meeting a friend for dinner tonight so I pulled out my old yellow jeans from J. Crew from like 5 years ago…similar to the ones below. I thought they’d look great with my chambray shirt, sandals, and a sparkly mani – more on that later. Have a great week! Monday Outfit by styledbyjessContinue reading “Monday Outfit”
We’ve had a hectic week this week (I’m back to work part-time and we’re getting used to a new schedule!) so I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend with not too many plans other than a mommy/daughter shopping trip Sunday while my husband golfs…can’t wait! I thought I’d dedicate today’s “couple things” post toContinue reading “Couple Things…”
We did it again… On Sunday night, in celebration of the first Sunday of the football season we made appetizers for dinner…my favorite! We made our delicious hot spinach artichoke dip and then, for something a little lighter, we made chicken lettuce wraps. We had never made them before, but they came out great. TheContinue reading “Chicken Lettuce Wraps”
Have you been watching the shows of NYFW? Here are a few highlights (according to me)… Jenny Packham J.Crew (love these colors!) Carmen Marc Valvo (can you believe this skirt?!) Lela Rose (what a great color!) More to come – there are still a few days left of shows!
We had a couple unripened/still green tomatoes fall off their vine in our garden out back – the tragedy! So what do you do with green tomatoes? Fry them up of course! We thought this recipe was great, the cornmeal added a nice crunch. Fried Green Tomatoes from http://www.simplyrecipes.com 3 medium, firm green tomatoes SaltContinue reading “Fried Green Tomatoes”
It’s feeling very fall-like today! I am wearing a “crossover” outfit (summer to fall) including my indigo jeans, black peplum t-shirt, and woven ASOS flats. All with a fun necklace and nude polish. Have a great week! Monday Outfit by styledbyjess featuring leather flats Dorothy Perkins scoop neck tee dorothyperkins.com Citizens of Humanity mid riseContinue reading “Monday Outfit”
What are you up to this weekend? I am so excited for a Girls Night Out I have planned for tonight with my college friends…don’t wait up! We’re leaving husbands, kids, and babies at home and spending the night in Newport for some fun – if the weather stays warm, I think I’ll wear oneContinue reading “Couple Things…”
I just love elbow patches, don’t you? So preppy, so random, so cute. It seems this season they are taking new shape! I just ordered this sweater from ASOS (extra 20% off, too!). I can’t wait to wear it this fall with my indigo pants.
Don’t you just love beets? We are big fans in our house. We got beets in our weekly CSA a couple weeks ago and after some research, we realized that steaming beets is the way to go (we always assumed you boiled them!). So, I thought I would share the process with you because ifContinue reading “Gimme a Beet”
I mentioned last week that I was going to make iron-on Peter Pan Collar shirts – well, I made the one for our baby girl and it came out SO cute! I saw in my September issue of Martha Stewart Living that she has great download-able patterns to print and make your own tees (andContinue reading “Peter Pan Collar Iron On”
