Old Clothes, New Look, Big Flavors

La mode: Well, it’s Monday. How was your weekend? Mine was a nice mixture of fun and relaxation, with a side of housework and paper grading. Friday night I was completely lazy, and it felt wonderful! Saturday I went to my friend Abbey’s wedding, and had such a fun time. Once again, I danced the night away. But this time my feet stayed comfortable—she provided a basket of flip flops for all the girls. Is that a great idea, or what?

Blouse: Banana Republic Factory; dress: Loft; necklace: thrifted; wedges: Merona, Target, gift

I’m still behind on outfit photos, so this is another one from last week. I’ve had all the pieces in this look for quite a while, but I’ve never put them together quite like this. 

I can’t deny the pleasure of wearing a newly purchased item, but every once in a while I’m reminded that it’s almost as fun to shop my own closet. How do you breathe fresh life into much-worn items?

La nourriture: The other night I made a dinner that was so incredibly full of flavor that I’m still thinking about it. The main dish was Mexican Inspired Grilled Pork Tenderloin from Kitchen Belleicious. This pork was the perfect mixture of sweet, spicy, and tangy. Aaron barely even talked during this meal… I just kept hearing “yum, mmmm, this is good”.  

On the side I roasted some sugar snap peas. I love snap peas on their own, but adding bacon, parmesan, pine nuts, and garlic took them to a whole other level. If you’re looking for a side-dish upgrade, you should definitely give these a try.
