Winning Combinations: Cardigans and Belts, Cilantro and Lime

Wearing: For this look, I was recreating this outfit, but with a different cardigan and jeans. I don’t know what it is, but something about this blouse makes me want to put a cardigan on and belt it. I think this version turned out okay, but I like the original outfit better. Something about the jeans and shoes… they just don’t look quite right. Oh well, lesson learned. I do love the colors together though.

Eating: Aaron and I had our own mini-cookout last night. He grilled shrimp and corn, and I cooked rice on the stove. I love the combination of cilantro and lime, so this was the jumping off point for my dinner. I used this recipe for the shrimp marinade, but I substituted ancho chili powder for the dried ancho chile. I loved the way the shrimp turned out—they were spicy and so flavorful!



I’d been drooling over Kitchen Belleicious’ recipe for lime grilled corn, so when corn went on sale this week I knew I had to try it. It was delicious; I love the combined flavors of the sweetness of the corn and the smoky taste from the grill.  

Finally, because one starch just isn’t enough, I made rice. I had Chipotle on mind as I stirred in cilantro, lime juice, lime zest, and a little butter into the cooked rice. How can you go wrong with that? 

What are some of your favorite combinations, either culinary or sartorial?
