Some Olive Love

Top: Buffalo Exchange  |  Skirt: Anthropologie  |  Belt: Thrifted  |  Shoes: Target

First of all, thanks everyone for your kind words yesterday.  Today is a better and easier day.  

I don't know why, but I don't think I've worn this skirt since the 30 for 30 ended.  I started to crave bright colors shortly after starting this blog and a neutral olive skirt didn't fit the bill.  And then once I found this bright green skirt, this little olive one didn't seem so fun.  But I'm giving it some love today.

Yesterday we went to a cooking class on marinades and rubs, which was pretty fun.  The teacher became more obnoxious over time as he tried too hard to be sarcastic and funny.  I felt bad for the poor assistants who had to work under him, but it was still an enjoyable time.

Anyway, yesterday I wore a sweater with a white shirt underneath, and though it was so hot I was resistant to taking off the sweater because they didn't provide aprons (weird) and I didn't want to stain my white shirt.  If any of you follow me on Twitter you might have read about how I'm amazing at running into door frames, cracking eggs on myself, and dropping things.  I cook often and I'm fine in the kitchen, but some days are just those days and I stub toes and drop things like crazy--both in and out of the kitchen.  Well, the heat eventually won and I reluctantly took off my sweater, but I'm proud to say that I made marinades, rubs, and learned to cut a whole raw chicken without getting anything on my white shirt!  Considering how clumsy I can be, I am very surprised I got out of there spot-free, but I don't think I'd dare try that again!

    Oh, and I love your outfit! You are so adorable and visiting your blog always makes me smile. I seriously love you, Audrey!

  5. I'm so glad to hear things are looking up. I hate those bad days and I'm sorry you had one of them. This outfit is awesome! I used to hate olive green, but it's one of my favorite colors now! And may I just say, I just tipped my hat to you. Nothing on the white shirt?! That's talent right there.
