Olive

Outfit details: Talbot's sweater, Stylemint T, J Brand jeans (similar here), Dolce Vita booties, Stella McCartney bag, Hermes bracelet, HRH Collection necklace

Sunday was an easy day; a jaunt to Whole Foods and Target and then brunch at Coppa with my blogger buddy Lani.  We brunched at Coppa where I've been for dinner but never brunch.  I had a delcious fontina, prosciutto and egg panini, Lani had a breakfast pizza, we shared the nutella and banana panini for dessert and we were both bad bloggers and remiss in photographing it for you.  If you find yourself in the South End I definitely recommend you check it out.

More Pink and Camel

Outfit details: J Crew sweater and cafe capri trousers, Rachel Zoe cape (similar here), Valentino flats (similar here), Moschino belt, Stella McCartney bag, J Crew and HRH Collection necklaces, Hermes bangle, Elisha Daniels ring

I really love the combo of pink and camel and again, I'm a poster child for J Crew.  These are my spring weight cafe capris which I bought since i loved the winter/fall version so.  I bought these in the tall size and I like how they hit lower at the ankle then the regular length.

Sunday Supper- Eggplant Parm (and a dose of sibling rivalry)

Last weekend I was in NYC with my sis and we decided Saturday night to cook in instead of going out.  Since she gave up meat for Lent and I'm trying to limit my meat intake, we decided to make eggplant parmigiana.  My sis and I are alike in multitudes of ways but in our eggplant we differ.  She likes to bread hers and I don't bread mine. 

She painstakingly breaded each sliver of eggplant (flour, egg wash, bread crumbs) and then fried them in olive oil.  I sliced mine then roasted them in the oven with olive oil and that was it.

We use provolone for the main cheese with a sprinkling of grated pecorino romano.  We assembled the casserole with layers of fresh made tomato sauce, eggplant, cheese, repeat.

We also made delicious garlicky cheese bread.

Both versions of the eggplant were delicious.  My sis's breaded eggplant was delicious on its own as well as in the eggplant parm though I still prefer the non breaded version.  One of my favorite things about eggplant is its silky quality which is more obvious when it's not breaded.

Dark Navy/Neon Pop

Outfit details: H&M sweater, Equipment blouse (similar here), Elisha Daniels necklace, Saks boots, Proenza Schouler bag

February is over and we got lots of rain and some snow yesterday.  Such weather doesn't make for being able to wear what I really want.  This H&M sweater (that I've worn over and over again in both navy and camel) was the perfect antidote for the bad weather blues.  It's cozy but still stylish and I paired it with skinny jeans and motorcycle boots.  To counteract the monochrome navy I added my fluoro Proenza Schouler cross body bag.  Happy happy Friday!

Orange

Outfit details: J Crew jacket (old but cute red Rebecca Minkoff one here) and pencil skirt, Zara striped top, Jimmy Choo booties, Tiziana handbag, Chanel necklace, Hermes bangle, Elisha Daniels pin

I broke out of the winter rut, despite the snow, with a favorite bright orange pencil skirt and an even brigher orange bag.  What can I say?  I like all shades of orange and color perks me up!
