fashion. food. friday. High Five for Friday!
1. Getting over jet lag
I made one of the smartest decisions I've made in a while by having it be that I'd only have a two-day work week last week after coming back from Bali. Doing so let me experience the depths of jet lag during the weekend. I'm almost over it (evenings are still really rough), but I'm sleeping more than 3 hours a night, so I consider that a move in the right direction.
2. Favorite color combinations
I've been celebrating this delightful spring weather by wearing dresses without tights. Hurray! I haven't put a ton of thought into my outfits this week (thanks, jet lag), but I did wear one of my favorite summer dresses, in one of my favorite color combinations (black and brown), with my favorite shoes:
Dress: Loft | Espadilles: Clarkes | Belt: Gap | Earrings: Charleston sweet-grass basket weaving
3. Broccoli & Chicken and Asian Slaw
I haven't cooked in weeks, and I'm making up for lost time this week. I hosted a friend for dinner last night and made a broccoli & chicken combination over rice and an asian slaw. No photos because we were too busy eating it.
4. Stripes and lace.
I wore this the week I left so I forgot to post this pic, but it's one of my favorites to wear:
Skirt: Banana Republic | Shirt: Loft | Necklace: Entourage | Flats: Target
5. Refrigerator Oatmeal
On my nightly to-do list I have a new item "prepare oatmeal."
Go and fix this tonight for yourself tomorrow. Your welcome.
*In mine I use 1/2 c. oats, 1 tbsp. chia seeds, a lot of cinnamon, a handful of raisins and craisins, a tiny amount of honey, a few chopped up almonds, and 1 c. milk. I was putting flax seeds in there, but those are useless if not ground up, so those have since been kicked off the menu. Combine dry, add milk and honey, stir well, cover, and keep in fridge at least 5 hours.
