Olive Green Overalls + Linkup

Happy Monday!

We had planned to visit Memphis this weekend, but plans shifted last minute.  So instead I did some organizing/cleaning and may have binge watched season 4 of Jane the Virgin (OMG that cliff hanger at the end?!  I can't take it).

On Saturday, we also stopped by Frankly Sausages and Ikea.  While their namesake sausages are delicious, I live for their fries.  They are SO crispy, while being insanely creamy in the middle.  The house smokey catsup doesn't hurt either.

This time, I got their wild boar sausage with pickled green strawberries and mint.  The sausage was pretty tasty, but I was indifferent about the topping.  Husband got their burger (a recent addition to the menu) and oh my.  It was SO good.  I might cave and get that next time, despite their self-proclaimed specialty.

Since we were going to Ikea after, comfort was key in outfit selection.  I went with an old favorite pair of linen overalls, and these super comfortable, soft leather shoes from Diba True.  They very generously let me pick a pair from their new releases, and it was a tough choice because there were SO many cute options.  I ultimately settled on this style, No Evidence, because I think they'll look adorable with both skirts and jeans, and I love that the back is convertible so they can function as slides too.  They also provided a coupon code for readers- get $30 off any pair with 'JENNAMARIE'.  Winning!  I also love this wedge sandal style and these olive suede wedges.

I finished my outfit off with a few other items I've been repeating over and over- this $14 scarf (last seen here and here) which I recently ordered in another pattern (sheer pink multi) and this ruffle-sleeve henley.

The $100 cashmere sweater + linkup

Last weekend we were in Chicago, and this week was a whirlwind between after work commitments and planning a big event for my team at work.  So I was excited for a chill weekend at home and cooking dinner for my mom to celebrate Mother's day.

Panda bamboo sunglasses [similar]  //  Cashmere sweater [exact only $100]  //  Tunic tee [exact under $20]  //  Release hem jeans [similar]  //  Everlane Day Glove flats c/o [exact]  //  Straw tote c/o [exact]  //  Ear crawlers [exact - my fav, these are fun too




She love veggies, so I went with an arugula, beet, citrus, avocado, pistachio, and goat cheese salad, steak (not pictures cause steak's not pretty), and husband's homemade bread.

I also made Girl & the Goat, Stephanie Izard's sauteed cauliflower.  It's SO good, I highly recommend making it, even though there's quite a few steps involved to make the peppers and the compound butter.

Picnic Apparel + Linkup

Hi Friends!

I wore this on Saturday in Chicago.  We grabbed sandwiches (and I had to try the black cherry chocolate chunk rice krispy treat...) at Publican Quality Meats, threw them in our picnic basket, and headed to the park for an afternoon catching some rays and enjoying the warm Spring weather.

Panda bamboo sunglasses [similar]  //  Ruffle sleeve henley [exact under $20]  //  Pleated knee length skirt [exact]  //  Madewell bandana [similar]  //  Everlane Day Glove flats c/o [exact]  //  Straw tote c/o [exact]  //  Ear crawlers [exact - my fav, these are fun too




This tote was perfect for the occasion.  I fit a few more goodies for lunch, plates, a cheese board, my camera, and my usual purse contents with ease, and the strap fits over my shoulder too!  I loved this 100% cotton ruffle sleeve henley too.  It's under $20 right now, comes in a bunch of colors, and is also super cute tucked into or left out high-waist jeans.


Not sure I can say enough good things about them.  I've worn them SO much since getting them, and I usually share the shoe love across my collection pretty evenly.  Not anymore.  These are so insanely comfy and the pale blue seems to just go with everything.  And speaking of over-wearing, this skirt has become a staple as well.  I love that it has a zipper and elastic in the waist for the most perfect fit.  The pleats and length are also super flattering.  I've worn it at least once a week since receiving it in the mail.

Spring Flowers + Hello Monday Linkup

Happy finally feels like Spring!

Seriously though, Mother Nature has been a little cruel these last few weeks (not that it matters since I literally (but not really) lived at my office.  (I did go home at night, but late, and to eat/shower/sleep in preparation for back to back marathon days at the office, YAY WORK!)

But I made it out alive, and those deadlines were met, so I celebrated Spring and my recently rediscovered work-life balance with flowers 💜
