I’ll take Silk over Cotton Any Day

Another day, another day off in pictures!

It started with me trying to organize this mess:

Which I think I tackled pretty well.

Then I met up with one of my girlfriends for an afternoon of pastries, coffee and consignment shopping!


And a close up of my skirt!

Remember what Diane Von Furstenburg used to say:

Be a woman, wear a dress!

My lunch (we actually split each one of those pastries in half 🙂 )

My new car NOT

My J.Jill $12 jacket:

Masha and I also ran across some interesting looking pants while at Fashion Avenue on 50th and France:

So what it’s going to be? Parrots? Dolphins? Dachshund? Or flowers?

When I came home, I made this recipe

It’s super easy and really tasty, and it’s okay to stray away from the ingredients list every once in a while, I didn’t have any fresh rosemary, but it turned out just fine! Also if you’ve ever been to Russia and tasted the Country Style Potatoes at McDonald’s there – those are even better! Seriously!

And for dessert, I had an Ugly 😉

It’s a giant meringue pastry from Patisserie 46 in South Minneapolis, tastes divine and costs only $1! Yes, I got myself 2 🙂 Plus the nuts used in this are walnuts, which makes it even better!

How was your day? And what do you think of the dress and the blazer? Please do share!



Anthropologie Arrangement

Since I am going to be at 50th and France tomorrow, I might as well pop into Anthropologie, and check some things out, hopefully even buy something. But knowing me, I’ve already checked everything out in the catalogue (both physical and on-line), and I created this board of fun Anthropologie stuff. Call me crazy, but I think this pharaoh one piece swimsuit is something I would totally wear!


stay warm if you are in Minneapolis!
