Welcome to the Weekend and Pops of Color!


Pops of Color

Winter has finally arrived here in Northern California with rain, snow and much colder temps. We need the rain to ease our near drought conditions so this is a welcomed relief. That said, I've seen the images of the incredible ice and snow in the Eastern part of the country and I feel for you. I spent two years in Michigan and remember those endless, frozen, snowy winters where even going out for milk was a major ordeal. I'm thinking what we need today is a pop of color to brighten things up.



These cheery yellow tulips are really brightening up my home office. I've even moved them from room to room so I can enjoy their particular brand of sunshine. When making all that effort to get the milk remember that picking up some bright flowers can help ease those winter blues.

I enjoyed joining the 'How I Wear My' fashion series with a pink theme this month. I have almost no pink in my wardrobe but was able to pull together this outfit at the last minute. See more stylish pink looks on Adrienne's The Rich Life on a Budget and Jill's Everything Just So and thanks for hosting, my friends. Mixing unusual colors together like this hot pink, radiant orchid and coral blend blouse I'm wearing can pop your outfit. Shop your closet this weekend and find some unusual combinations. How about lime and navy? Coral and charcoal?

I have been searching for the perfect animal print shoes to replace a pair that is worn out. I love the styling of the ones pictured above from Report that I ordered from Zappos. The toe box was a bit tight for me though I loved the stability of the heel. Returns are easy so I replaced them with the ones I'm wearing in the photo, from Paris Hilton. They have fun styling and lots of 'cush' so I'm a fan.

We have a trip coming up so Scott and I have decided it's date night in tonight. I have a bright lemony recipe that I'll be making called Rustic Lemon Chicken. It's been a favorite for years and I just found it online from Food Network. If you have chicken breasts, a couple of lemons and some onions you've got just about everything you need. Delicious.

I loved the pops of color in this NYC apartment from Vogue  APT with LSD: Brett Heyman's Upper East Side Apartment. They are a great contrast to a snowy outdoor NYC.

I'm going to reread this post on packing tips for a beachy vacation since we are in packing mode this weekend. Aside from staying warm and dry what are your plans for the weekend?
