The last thing I wore: This fun floral dress that I got on clearance last winter for under $14 at Target and this teal blazer, a clearance find from Kohl’s last winter. I added the belt for a pop of color and love how it turned out!
Dress- Target (old)
Blazer- Kohl’s, options: J. Crew Factory | Kohl’s | Macy’s | ModCloth | Target
Heels- DSW (similar)
The last show I watched: Tuesday nights are my jam in terms of TV shows. Giuliana and Bill. Real Housewives of NYC. The Little Couple. Love them all! But recently, I’ve been catching up on the series Orphan Black on BBC America. It is SO good! Season 2 just started so I’m binge watching the first 10 episodes from Season 1. Highly recommend it…so many twists and turns. Don’t wait to spoil it for you but here is a shot of all the characters that ONE actress plays…amazing.
The last person I texted: My friend Andrea, to tell her about the awesomeness that is Orphan Black. See above.
The last food I cooked: Last night, I prepped the “Chicken Parm with Saucy Pasta Swap” recipe from the
Hungry Girl Diet (see my recaps here) for lunch tomorrow. The noodles are replaced with broccoli slaw. Hope it tastes good!
The last thing I drank: Drinking coffee right now as I right this post. Thinking I may need a refill soon…
The last workout I did: 3.5 miles during lunch at the gym…it was my first run after the half marathon this weekend. Felt good!
The last thing I bought: Just purchased my next outfit from Fabletics…went with these awesome camo shorts and fun yellow tank…I mean we are expecting 80 degree temps the next couple days…just hope it sticks around!

OMG Valerie you are totally 100% chic in that all-green ensemble. I recently purchased a Blazer in that shade of Green and love mine. Cute dress and hair too. I love it darker.
You should check out my latest post. It is all about Florals. If you want, let me know in the comments if you’d like for me to feature this outfit of yours next Wednesday. It would be my pleasure. =)
Thanks and Happy Wednesday! Ada. =)
Thank you Ada- so sweet! I’ve been loving the darker hair but am actually going a little lighter at the end of the week (more of my spring/summer hair look haha). Will check out your post now- thanks and Happy Wednesday to you!
That dress is so cute, what a steal! And that shade of green looks really great on you. You should always wear jewel tones, they really pop with your coloring!
I know right?! Damn you Target and your good stuff! I’m getting my hair done and going a little lighter at the end of the week, so I hope these colors will still work!
Love this dress and the blazer is perfect with it!!!!
Thank you Agi- this is definitely one of my favorites for spring!
Um, can I steal this whole outfit? Green is my absolute favorite and I am pretty sure I need this dress and the blazer. Sooooo cute!
Broccoli slaw noodles sound interesting – I want to know how it turned out!
Steal away :-) You look so fab in green- this would be cute on you!
Just had the broccoli slaw noodles– it was ok. Hard to get used to vegetables as noodles when there are no carbs. Ugh. Also think it would taste better if I made/consumed it in the same day (I made mine last night and took it for lunch today). The recipe also calls for canned, crushed tomatoes, and I wonder if spaghetti sauce would make it taste better? Hmmm!
That belt is so perfect! I love that dress! I’m curious about broccoli slaw in place of noodles, I hope it’s good!
Thanks Laura- I think the belt really breaks up all the teal going on!
The slaw was ok…I bet if would taste better if I prepared it and ate it in the same day…I also think I could smother it in more sauce to give it more of a spaghetti taste!

I love this outfit, especially how you found a way to make such a bright blazer work appropriate. I have a similar colored blazer from Loft that may be a little brighter. I just may pair it with a floral dress now!
Thanks Ele- I’m so happy with how it came together! I’d love to see your look!

Those two pieces look like they were made for each other!! Great finds!
I’ve only ever put broccoli slaw in salads and stir-frys so I’m intrigued by the noodle idea. Do you just steam it?
Thanks! I can’t believe I didn’t pair these two together sooner!
You can either cook it on the stovetop for 10-12 minutes until soft, or you can steam it in the microwave, which I did. But I tried to understeam it because I knew I would be reheating it again for lunchtime today. It turned out ok, but I’m curious if it would taste better if I made it and ate it right away?
What a gorgeous look! I love this teal color and the dress fits you perfectly… so pretty!
Thank you Rachel- I’m loving the color!
Kelly W told us about Orphan Black and Steven and I really enjoyed it!
Yay for first run back!
It is SO good! Are you guys watching Season 2 right now? And speaking of good shows, what kind of movie do we want to watch on Sunday? I can browse Redbox…any good ones come to mind?!
We aren’t! I didn’t know it was back on! We will have to see if it’s on On Demand. I think that is where we watched it before :)
Hmm, it will be tricky to find a movie we all haven’t seen! (We just watched Nebraska and Dallas Buyers Club this week). Maybe Labor Day?
Oh my gosh I totally just binge watched Orphan Black last week! I’m obsessed, it’s so good! I’m loving this beautiful dress too!
YES! Isn’t it amazing?! SO many twists and turns…we are on episode 7 of season 1, will definitely finish it and catch up on as much of season 2 that is out!
Ok, I FOR SURE need to watch Orphan Black, because everyone is talking about it! :)
Seriously- you will thank me. SO dang good!
