Cool Colors

005Ray-Ban Sunglasses, JCP Blouse, Macy’s Jacket, Zara Pants & Heels, Rebecca Minkoff Bag

I love wearing colored denim year round, especially in the cooler months when it’s not so exciting as the spring and summer. These pants are certainly a favorite since they have a very sleek and tailored look to them; they can easily pair with a pair of sneakers and t-shirt or can be dressed up with heels and a button down blouse. However, I wanted to mix things up with a denim jacket and casual bag.002 003 006004

French Onion Soup

001French onion soup has always been a favorite of mine. And somehow when I went to Paris back in May, I managed to not have it when we were there; so making it myself seems to be the way to make up for it. It was about 10 years ago that my dad made this recipe one day, but the recipe just didn’t do the soup justice (and it was a random recipe that he had found); it came out with a taste that was just too strong. The only recipe that I would trust when attempting to make it myself, is from the Julia Child cookbook. Before my first taste, I was a little afraid of what would be the result, and I was pleasantly surprised! It was just as good as when I have had this soup in a restaurant, if not better!

Even the most casual of items can be very glamorous with a few extra details. Like the wide legged pants; I wore them last with sneakers and a blazer (last seen here) and with the zippers on the side, it certainly has a sportier feel to them. But with a pair of heels and sheer blouse, I think these sporty pants have instantly become perfect for a sleek and modern look.

Sweet Moments

A beautiful setting for a wedding reception

How was your weekend? Mine was certainly nice and long! Three day weekends need to come around more often. This weekend, I attended a family wedding at the Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, which was such a beautiful outdoor ceremony that was so romantic. With this short week, I am excited for the weekend because nesting mode is seriously kicking in with staying at home curled up with a book or watching a movie and doing lost of baking. Have a lovely week!
