A Short Week, This Skirt, and Salmon Make Me Happy

La mode: The bad news: the three-day weekend is over. The good news: this is only a four-day work week. I love short weeks—they always fly by. I have to tell you all thank you so much for the get-well wishes Friday. I think all your wishful thinking worked, because I’m feeling much better now.


Blouse: Loft; skirt: Merona, Target; earrings: Target; belt: Old Navy; wedges: NY & Co

I got lots of rest this weekend, which was wonderful, but the best part of my weekend was meeting and holding (yay!) my new niece Briley. I might be a little biased, but I think she’s the most precious, perfect baby I’ve ever seen. 



As for what I’m wearing, (Oh, this is a personal style blog? Right.) I broke out my new favorite skirt once again. Wearing this skirt makes me happy. I love the mix of colors and the funky print, and I can’t get enough of the fact that it has a sleek pencil skirt shape but is ridiculously comfortable to wear.

La nourriture: Living in Kansas on a tight budget means that I don’t get to cook as much seafood as I’d like to. So when Atlantic salmon went on sale last week at my grocery store, I snapped up a few fillets.


I love the flavor of salmon, and while it can stand up to grilling and adding a lot of heavy flavors, I wanted something lighter this time. I found this recipe for Poached Salmon with Pesto and Feta, and it was exactly what I was looking for. I love the way the flavors of the basil pesto and feta cheese balance out the delicately cooked fish. This is a recipe I would definitely make again.
