I'm a Rebel: With Color and Lasagna

Let me preface this post by saying that my heart goes out to the people of Joplin, Missouri, whose lives have been torn apart by a devastating tornado. Countless homes have been destroyed, and over 100 lives were lost. If you'd like to help, one place you can go is Heart to Heart International

Wearing: I can’t get enough color blocking with pinks and oranges. Plus, I was hoping that wearing bright colors would encourage the sun to come out—it’s been rainy and dreary lately. 

Cardigan: Loft; ruffle blouse: Express; jeans: thrifted Gap; earrings: Target; belt: Old Navy; wedge sandals: Target

Every year I get excited about wearing spring clothes; they’re always more bright and colorful than winter’s darker hues. However, this year especially seems to be all about color. All the rules about not wearing too many bold colors at once have been thrown out the window, and I love it! That’s why I added the turquoise belt: it’s an unexpected dash of contrasting color. (It’s hard to see but my toenails are painted a similar shade of blue.)

Eating: Rules aren’t just being broken in my wardrobe, but at my dinner table as well. Who says lasagna must be made with ground beef? Who says that it has to take twelve years to make? And who says it even needs to use pasta? Well, the blog Can You Stay for Dinner? rebelled against these lasagna “norms” with her Petite Lasagnas, made in a muffin tin with ground turkey and wonton wrappers. I joined the rebellion and made them for dinner last night. Breaking the rules tastes good.
