Memorial Day Packing ..

 

 

Mem day #3

 Hi Everyone!

Yay!  The weekend is finally here!  I had extra long days at the office this week  so it feels good to finally be home with several days off to look forward to.  Work hard, play hard they say and I think I need to do that!

   Whether you are traveling or enjoying a stay-cation, I hope you have fun and return next week fully charged and ready to go:)

For the weekend ahead I’m thinking about adding nautical pieces to my usual neutrals. Nordstrom is having their half year sale and I’ve already picked up a few basics like this pretty and functional Tory Burch tote. Tory Burch swimwear is classic and a few suits have built in Sun Protection Factor.  This is a great idea for those of us with fair or sensitive skin.

Sonja Dakar has a beautiful skin care line and  I will be packing her Pear Lip Fitness Balm with sun protection.   Don’t forget to protect your ears, hands, and lips for the sun!  Also,  I am obsessed with Davines products!  The line is perfect for dry or compromised skin and hair.

I’m off and running trying to catch up after a long work week.  Have a fun weekend!

Day/Night

day night

Sometimes I go from the office to an evening event and naturally, after a long day I want  to keep the transition easy and minimize what needs to be changed.

Trading out pretty neutrals in favor of darker accessories is an easy way to create a fun and edgy evening look!

    I like both of these dresses!  There is also a  Triple Eyelet Shift Dress on Sale at J Crew that I don’t have listed, so take a look! (here)

 One of my favorite parts of summer is  the abundance of fresh produce.    It makes it SO much easier to eat healthier when there are more tasty options available.

Years ago when my husband and I were visiting Cozumel, Jicama was served with almost all of our meals.   This crisp root vegetable is very refreshing and has a mild flavor making it a fun addition to any crudité tray.

 Today I am sharing an unusual combination of flavors that is perfect for the warmer months ahead.  I find this salad so refreshing after a run or my gym class.

Cut up a small seedless watermelon, a cucumber and small jicama. Next  add  fresh lime, a sprinkling of chili pepper, and you’ve got a very unique and healthy salad.

Head out to your local Farmer’s Market or Natural Foods store and enjoy the taste of Spring!

Spa SALAD

Ingredients: 

 seedless watermelon

jicama

cucumber

2 or 3 limes

sprinkle of chili powder

Process:

Cut up the watermelon, cucumber, and jicama and place them in a bowl.  Squeeze the juice of 2 or 3 limes over the ingredients and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes.  Plate and sprinkle chili powder over the top.

Soft Silk

 

 

THREE

 

 A soft silk blouse is one of my favorite wardrobe pieces.  Add a pair of distressed jeans, a black pant, or a pencil skirt and you’ve got an easy go-to look.

While browsing through the Nordstrom sales I picked up this  Draped Silk Blouse .  The color is so pretty and I know I’ll wear it plenty over the next few months.   Soft pink silk look great with a pair of white or faded denim and a soft nude pump like these Jimmy Choos.   Here in Seattle women wear lots of black and gray for most of the year so wearing nudes and pinks is a welcome change!

  Silk also looks pretty with a  Cropped Black pant  and a pair of sandals.  Tory Burch Sandals  are on sale so make sure to check them out!  How cute are these Bi Color Glasses for the upcoming summer months and I absolutely love the subtleness of this Nars ‘Nude Scene’ Blush!
