To console myself, I went the tried and true route, which means some retail therapy and something good for my belly. First stop - Target. Second stop - the mall. Third stop - the supermarket. Yes, my credit card got a wallet rash today.
Here's what I wore today - super-casual and kind of similar to what I wore last weekend. This gingham shirt from Lands' End Canvas has become my go-to. And I have it in three colors.
My nickname is "Boogie." No joke.
Shirt: Lands' End Canvas gingham poplin (worn here before)
Jeans: J. Crew bootcut
Belt: Forever 21 metal bead skinny (worn here before)
Shoes: Etienne Aigner Roz wedges
Bags: Dooney & Bourke leather letter carrier
And here's a pic of my shopping haul:
I went to Anthro in search of the Deeply Rooted Henley but they weren't in yet (insert sad face). They did have the Heatwave Shorts (which are really by Hei Hei and not Leifsdottir like the web site says) and I pounced, since I am a sucker for nautical. I also got the Royal Poinciana Skirt because it is so much more vibrant and pretty IRL than online. And some other stuff too ...
I got these shorts one size larger than I normally wear - I like them lower on my waist.
The shorts have pockets, but really small openings for them - I was barely able to fit my hands in them.
The little anchors IRL are a beige-ish color, not white.
The skirt with a new JC tee - FYI all graphic tees are $10 off!
Lastly, I wanted something good for my belly (can't forget the belly!), so I made a tweaked version of the Barefoot Contessa's chicken salad (original recipe here).
The players - I "tweaked" the original recipe by adding in some chopped celery, walnuts, garlic and basil.
I added in the mustard and mayo to taste. A little goes a long way.
Oven-roasting the chicken breast is easier and tastier.
