Passing by

It's lovely to have the weekends to breakup the monotony of the Monday-Friday schedule. A time to sleep just a bit later and be able to start my day by baking muffins and keep alive that feeling of optimism that the days might just last a little bit longer before the 7:30 a.m. alarm rings again.

Saturday I visited New Haven and had lunch at Caseus, which is a restaurant that has a menu built around cheese. Clearly I love this place. While I have a strict rule to never order in a restaurant an item I could easily cook myself, here I ordered the grilled cheese. I am satisfied to report that it was an item worthy of being ordered out.

Sunday I had the Styled by James panel at South Moon Under, which was a fun event, and I'll hopefully share a little more about it later this week.

As for that closet clean out... maybe next weekend? This weekend I just went and bought more hangers.

  1. Can we talk about how amazing the scallops are on that jacket????? I can't believe I missed it when H&M had it!

  2. Weekends really are a wonderful thing. Mine went too quickly, as it always does, and sadly, the only cheese that I ate turned out to be a bad life choice (which, at my age, I should really know by now) but it was totally worth it. I do wish I could have hopped on a very quick flight down to attend your event - maybe one of these days! - but I hope we'll get to hear all about it later this week. As for this outfit, I love that your jacket matches the blossoms on the trees, what a lovely coincidence!

  3. What a great spring outfit! A great grilled cheese is worthy of an order at a restaurant though I generally agree with you too!

  4. You look pretty...
    Nice outfit..

  5. Oh the scalloped blazer is making a comeback !! Love it.
    I had the wort burger over the weekend.

  6. Such a lovely Spring outfit! And gotta love all the trees! One thing I do like about Spring, hehe.
    And yea, I did a closet clean out on Saturday...aka I moved my warm weather clothes into the center of my closet and put my sweaters in rubbermaids

  7. The scalloped edge of your blazer is so pretty! Also enjoying your blue printed tunic; so perfect with your jeans and those amazing gold pumps. I bet your grilled cheese sandwich was positively delicious. :)

  8. I love the scalloped detail on the blazer! The colors in your top are so pretty and complimented by the blazer!

  9. I'm a cheese head, so the grilled cheese would have sucked me in too! I love the details of this look - the jewelry is really beautiful and accents the scalloped blazer so well.

  10. can't get over the print of this top, so pretty. Great blazer as well.


  11. What a great spring outfit! I love the scalloped detailing!

    After co-writing the classic book,"The Millionaire Next Door", Thomas Stanley wrote this book,"The Millionaire Mind", which is an entertaining and updated version of his previous book. Here are some thoughts about "The Millionaire Mind".

  16. So in love with the print of your top! Lately, I've been seeing a lot of "gourmet" grilled cheese popping up in restaurants...totally worthy of ordering!

  17. Nice outfitand I love the necklace and the bracelet! You look fabulous!

  18. Beautiful look !

  19. A restaurant focused around cheese sounds like heaven. I bet that grilled cheese was outstanding! I love the pretty print of that blouse, especially with the scallops on the jacket.

  20. Very nice ensemble! Lovely top!
