Several weeks ago I went shopping with the primary intention of bringing home a classic, timeless jumpsuit. I thought for sure that when I found one with a great cut and beautiful fit, it would have to be a real splurge wardrobe addition. To my surprise (and delight), I found this one that fit effortlessly at New York and Company. Needless to say it was a lucky shopping day!

Chilled Tomato Basil Soup

While my favorite dish to make in the winter is a soup or stew, I tend to forget about chilled soups as an option in the warmer weather. When I encountered this delicious tomato basil soup recipe in Cooking Light’s July issue, I gathered the ripest, reddest tomatoes I could find at the market and gave it a try. I love the tomato basil combination, and this soup tasted incredibly fresh and flavorful. I added a bit more black pepper and lemon juice to taste. It was even better the next day as the basil flavor was intensified!

As someone who, for years, resorted to the classic black and white ensemble, I have a great appreciation for bright hues and standout accessories. While I will always cherish the beautifully classic monochromatic look, my mood is immediately uplifted while wearing bright pieces, like these neon yellow Old Navy sandals I discovered last month. They’re perfect for any occasion ranging from a lunch outing with friends to a simple weekend errand run.

I spent this week in New Orleans for a work conference, so this weekend I wanted nothing more than to catch up on life, relax and recuperate. After running errands, my mother and I ventured to a cafe in town called Straw Valley. It intrigued us as they’ve recently added a restaurant and raw bar to the cafe, and they host live jazz music every other weekend. The beautiful courtyard outside the cafe holds tables, cabanas, and a bubbling fountain. The area is incredibly serene, and though we went solely for coffee, we are looking forward to spending a Saturday night there for dinner.
