Sequin Jacket: Summerfied

This sequin jacket was a Christmas present this past holiday. Here it is in the winter. Today, I decided to see if I could summer-fy it in order to get a little more use out of it. I must admit, this was an outfit I would’ve kept on all day had the temperature not kept crawling upward. The weight of those sequins add a little too much warmth for a nearly 90 degree day at the end of June. Perhaps I’ll bring it back out on a 70-ish degree day. ;)

The Happy Color

I am all about the yellow lately (see previous post ;) )…summer always brings out my desire to wear yellow. It just seems an appropriate color to wear because everyone seems happier in the summer, and yellow is such a happy color :) I found this pretty yellow chiffon top at Nordstrom Rack a few weeks back for about $15. At the time, I had pictured it with white pants or a white skirt…but really the possibilities are endless since it is such a simply designed top. I will have to experiment quite a bit with it this summer.

Yellow Schwinn, No Punchbacks!

YAY! I finally got a new bike! :D I am SO excited. This sunny Schwinn bike was my birthday gift this year :) I’ve wanted a cruiser bike for quite some time…every time we go to Put-In-Bay in fact, I come home wanting a cruiser bike because they are just so much fun to *literally* cruise around on (especially on an island).

Needless to say, this summer is going to be spent on many bike rides through the CLE Metroparks on this pop of color. The husband and I kick-started that goal the other morning too…we made ourselves some yummy egg and avocado breakfast sandwiches, rode to the closest coffee shop, and then headed down into the CLE Metroparks to have a little morning picnic. :) Maybe our next adventure will be a lunch picnic?

Le Petit Post

Sorry it’s been a while! June is always a super busy month , it seems.  So this is going to be a small post, too. 
I just wanted to share a couple photos from our dinner last week at Le Petit Triangle in Ohio City.  We had only gotten brunch there before, which was equally as fantastic.
First, they have a really great cocktail list, but for dinner I got a yummy steak and the husband got a chicken dish with mostly lemon and olive flavors.  For dessert, we split one of their amazing chocolate souflees.  One thing I love about their menu is how perfect the portions are. Not too much or too little.

Le Petit Triangle, my friends, is one of CLEs gems. Give it a go. You will leave perfectly satisfied.
