Balancing Colors and Flavors

La mode: Lately I’ve seen some bold looks combining the primary colors: red, yellow, and blue. I love how bright and cheerful it looks, but for some reason, I haven’t been able to get it to work for me. However, I did like what I got when I modified the colors a bit and combined wine, mustard, and navy.

Sweater: Gap; skirt: Gap; tights; Merona, Target; shoes: Merona, Target, gift

When I was experimenting with color combinations, I discovered a lack of cold weather-appropriate colored skirts in my closet. I’ve got sweaters in nearly all colors of the rainbow, but when it comes to skirts, this mustard one is feeling pretty lonely. I think I know what I’ll be spending my Christmas money on. (Is it too early to think about that?)

 What color combinations are you crushing on right now?

Le dîner [dinner]: It’s pretty rare that a week goes by at my house without a pasta dinner. Aaron and I both love pasta, especially since it’s one of those meals that keeps on giving (read: leftovers). So I’m always on the lookout for easy, delicious pasta suppers.

Although the sauce, with enchilada sauce, cream and cheese, sounds heavy and rich, it’s surprisingly light and the flavors are perfectly balanced. I can tell that this one is going to become a household favorite.

  1. That skirt is so cute! I love the color and that you paired it with that shade of red.


I really appreciate hearing from you!
