Weekend Ready

Jeans | Shoes | Shirt (only $12!) | Necklace

I have been struggling this week, not only because it is the week before a holiday weekend, but also because of my lack of inspiration for work outfits. My office is very causal so this outfit is pretty much the norm of what I wear along with everyone else. I was pretty pleased about how simple but still put together this outfit turned out to be. I was worried it would look a little “waiter” – ish, but I added the lariat necklace and slides which I think helped.

I think the real shinning star of this outfit is the white tee. I have such a hard time finding a white tee that fits well and can stand the test of time. This one checks all my boxes and fits true to size. It is a must have!

Have a great weekend!

Denver Eats | To The Wind Bistro

If you drive by too fast you just might miss this little gem on Colfax. To The Wind Bistro is a tiny 10 table restaurant, but the food is incredible! I was told to get there early since they do not take reservations, are only open for dinner and have very limited seating. I made G get there at 4:45 since I was starved and wanted to make sure we got the first seating. I am not sure if it was just that particular night, or if Friday nights are not that busy, but the place didn’t fill up until about 7. IMG_4278

The menu changes seasonally and they start you out with their homemade peanuts which were unique but delicious. G and I shared the Cornmeal Waffle (which is a menu staple), and the Roasted Quail. I was a little nervous about the quail being too gamey but it was actually really good and would highly recommend it.

For the entires G got the Salmon and I got the chicken. Both were amazing and filling. We commented at the end of our meal that we were very happy with the portions. Sometimes when we go to a fancier place we feel like the food is awesome but the portions are so small and sometimes we leave wanting more. Not the case here, we were stuffed!

We finished off our dinning experience with some tea, coffee and the bread pudding. We each also had a couple of glasses of wine and our total bill came out to about $150.

I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the mood to try something new and tasty. The atmosphere was totally relaxed and not stuffy at all. Jeans were appropriate and below is what I wore.

A Fashionable Hound

IMG_4004

Charlie has often been told that he is one good looking hound, so I thought I would share his fashion secret with everyone, bandanas! I love searching the internet for fun and unique bandanas. I first got the idea when I saw that Chelsea Handler always has her Chow’s in them and I thought they looked so cute.

When we got Charlie two years ago we started his collection. We have even started hunting for bandanas when we travel to bring him back a souvenir and remind us of a fun trip. When he was a puppy we did have issues with him chewing on the ends when he would get bored, but he eventually grew out of that and now he wears them 24-7 (except for at the dog park or doggie day care).  I swear that he likes it better when he has one on and when you look good, you feel good!

They also make really cute gifts for people who just got a pup or if you are going over to someones house who has a dog.

Here are some of Charlie’s preferred bandana companies:

Willowear – They have great packaging that is standard so they are ready to go gifts.

Wagged – This company also donates a meal to a dog for every bandana that is sold.
