Remix #11 of 30 :: black dress + black slingback sandals

I love when weekends strike the perfect balance of rest, play, and productivity. It’s the trifecta, really. We had a great dinner with friends at Nineteen 61, played our weekly round of golf with my step-dad, finished up Stranger Things on Netflix, made it to the grocery store to restock our fridge for the first time in weeks, and knocked out our chore list around the house.

C had to go into the office yesterday morning to meet a client and we planned to grab breakfast afterward, so I threw on my favorite black dress — it’s no coincidence that it ended up in my summer capsule — with my Jack Rogers ‘Liliana’ slingback sandals (that I found on sale for $40 last year!) and a Nine West hat because you know I’m not washing and styling my hair on the weekends.

I love this Moroccan woven tote. I bought it at Boktoberfest last year, and now I stock them in our gift boutique at the flower shop. They’re a perfect durable summer carryall for the beach, pool, farmer’s market, library, or picnic.

    • It’s so good! It’s like E.T. meets The Goonies meets The X-Files. It’s one of the few series I’ve been able to get my husband hooked on all the way through. :)

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
