I realize that blue stripes and white jeans are not exactly appropriate for January, but yesterday the sun came out, it was 50 degrees (practically tropical around here!), and I felt so excited to feel sunshine on my face and soak up some vitamin D. I suffer from mild seasonal depression, and at some point every winter decide I want to move to California. Then days like yesterday come around and I fall back in love with Connecticut again. Anyway, it was one of those days and I was in a summery mindset, so I wore a summery outfit. Winter white is a thing though, right?
I was also feeling extra high on life because Anel and I are back on our usual, clean, healthy diet, and the lethargy I felt with all of the extra gluten and sugars that the holiday season inevitably brings, is dissipating. For those of you asking on my Snapchat, this is the detox lentil soup I made for dinner last night, and it was insanely good! I added some extra salt, but for the most part stuck to the recipe. If you have a slow cooker, I highly recommend this recipe. It’s full of veggies and full of flavor. I bought most of the ingredients pre-chopped (don’t judge me!) which made it super quick.
Ok on to my happy little outfit now. When I got these red flats earlier in the week, my mind went straight from holiday reds to nautical summer reds. Clearly someone needs a warm-weather vacation! Not to worry, I have two coming up so stay tuned. The flats are from what has become my all time favorite shoe company, M.Gemi, which is having a major sale this week. I have The Fortuna in a few other colors, but right now it’s on sale in red, blue, and green. Is it awful that I want all three? Don’t worry Anel, I won’t do it!
In other news, my red coat that so many of you have been asking about is still sold out, but J.Crew Factory made an almost identical one that is still available in a bunch of sizes. Hurry, it’s selling out quickly too!
