For my look today, I was inspired by this post on the blog Spry on the Wall. I loved Jenny's takes on the combination of turquoise and olive green. I wouldn’t have immediately thought to pair my olive button-up with turquoise accessories, but I love how it turned out!
Olive button-up: Gap; jeans: Loft; necklace: Forever 21; flats: Merona, Target
Don’t forget to check out Everybody Everywear today to see countless ideas for how to wear lace. I do have a little lace peeking out from my button-up, but I don’t think it’s enough to count. I’m sitting this challenge out due to lack of lace in my wardrobe. (This needs to change, don’t you think?) But I can’t wait to see what others came up with.
Eating: Tell me, have you ever seen a photo of shepherd’s pie that is visually appealing? It’s just not a pretty food, people. But it’s delicious, so I’m sharing.
This Turkey Shepherd’s Pie is found in Rachael Ray’s Book of 10, but I found it originally in her 365: No Repeats cookbook. I've been making it for years, and it’s one of Aaron’s favorites.
I made a few modifications to her original recipe (found here): I substituted corn for the peas (I think it makes it more summery. Oh, and I don’t like peas.) and I left out the carrots, celery and peppers. In the past, I’ve made this recipe with ground beef as well; I happen to like the turkey better, especially with the addition of the corn. But this one is an easy one to modify based on whatever meat and veggies you like!
