30 for 30: Outfit 17








Occasion:

Oh Man! This is the first time I've ever posted 3 times in one day...but what can I say? I am so far behind in my posts and I have some free time today (I've already baked banana chocolate chip bread, put away all the china from the weekend, cleaned the bedroom, washed the dishes, ran some errands AND taken Keppie for a walk...all in the time that D has been in the city for his LSAT class). I still need to plan our dinners for the week (I just got 3 new cookbooks...Thanks, D!). I want to try some new recipes. We have recently gotten into the habit of repeating dinners over and over again and we both agree we need some new recipes in our repertoire! I made a bunch of new recipes from the new cookbooks for Shabbos and they were super yummy:)

This outfit started with the accessories. I love teal/turquoise and I wanted to focus an outfit around them. Black and turquoise are such an obvious combo so I decided to add in the long grey cardi and denim pencil skirt to give different colors and textures. I matched my beret to my cardi and since it was super cold the day that I wore this, I reached for my UGG boots which always keep me toasty! Y'all can probably tell by now that I am a big fan of the double belt. Here is no exception. I twisted 2 turquoise belts with different patterns/textures together and I really liked the effect. This necklace is such a great statement piece and the chrome and turquoise fit in just perfectly with the grey sweater and other turquoise accessories. The bracelet finished off the look:)

I love all the turquoise. So pretty.

Any good cookbook recommendations? (I'm actually hosting a giveaway on my blog right now for an awesome kosher Asian cookbook.)
