It is hot. Wish I had some lighter cardigans that matched this dress. Guess I'll go with the bright blue, because looking like Mr. Met is what all the cool kids are doing. Wait, what? If I wear two incredibly bold and seemingly unrelated colors next to eachother, I can call it colorblocking and get away with it? Sweet.

And the jersey dress + light cardigan formula rears its comfortable head yet again. What can I say? Heat makes me a creature of habit. Today I went on a wild goose chase to one thrift store that had nothing I wanted and two that didn't actually exist in the listed locations. The last being about a mile away from the subway station. Thank the Lord for my flat-wearing ways, or I'd have been hobbling all the way home.
We're hosting Sabbath lunch this week, and I unknowingly created a mostly Mexican meal: Gazpacho for a starter with homemade pita chips, grilled skirt steak salad with arugula, shallot and tomato, grilled BBQ chicken breast, roasted corn salsa, Israeli couscous with pesto and toasted almonds, grilled asparagus, tomato and baby zucchini, watermelon, lime, basil and mint sorbet and cupcake brownie surprise. Which is essentially what it sounds like: a vanilla cupcake with a gooey brownie center. I got a head start on cooking this afternoon, so I thankfully don't have too much on my plate tomorrow. Yet another perk of unemployment.
What are your weekend plans?
