WEEKEND AT HOME / 102

lately, yellow is taking over my color palette. it’s such a vibrant accent color, and i love how bold of a contrast it lends a space. there’s an overwhelming number of colors yellow works with navy, blush, white, and blackbut my favorite pairing is blush pink with mustard yellow. i’m eyeing so many mustard duvets at the moment and would love to refresh my space with one. rather than a ton of yellow, i prefer subtle ochre textiles as a lovely way to add the pop of yellow to a spacethink mustard hued linens and velvets alongside neutrals. what do you think about adding a bit of yellow to your space?

STYLED / SHOPBOP SALE

(image is from Vogue Brazil August 2015)

is having one of those spend more save more sales which always tempts me to buy one of the more expensive items i’ve been eyeing. but, i’m still on my three months of no shopping so i’ll just keep dreaming. i do like to add a few fun pairs of spring/summer shoes to my wardrobe once a year. a colorful heel to wear with jeans or a pair of white mules (which i have a version of and wear all the time). black and white gingham and stripe is really having a moment right now and i, of course, had to include something in purple which is the color that i (and the rest of the fashion world) can’t seem to get enough of right now. i tend to gravitate towards a block heel for summer, it’s easier to wear and generally more comfortable. all the shoes are from shopbop which tends to run on the pricer side but it’s always fun to get some visual inspiration, even if the shoes are outta budget! – joanie

(FYI: all of the prices are pre-sale since the discount depends on how much you spend! ) 

 $210 – i cannot recommend a pair of white mules enough. i have a pair and have to fore myself not to wear them every single day. they go with everything and the wooden heel is very comfortable.

 $140 – such a sweet pair of slides, i’d love to see these with a pair of pleat front black pants, very Audrey Hepburn like.

 $395- i don’t own anything by Rachel Comey but i silently admire her collection every season. i love this mustardy yellow.

  $120 – the only pair of non-block heels i included. rock these all spring/summer long. would be especially cool with a really light pair of denim.

 $140 – this pair of purple knotted slides is so chic and will certainly sell out soon.

  $120 – the cloth knot on these feels very vacation, which is never a bad thing. and i really like the rafia wrapped heel.

  $120 – a pair of slip ons for every day wear.

 $104 – i own these and they are very comfortable and look great with jeans or a dress. they’d be a good outdoor wedding shoe.

 $375 – never not into Loeffler Randall, these are such a fun pair for summer.

STEAK FRIES WITH CHIMICHURRI

steak fries with chimichurri | designlovefest

i went to south america on my honeymoon and ate some seriously delicious food and drank some amazing wine. one thing we ran into over and over again in Argentina was chimichurri. they’d serve it along side steak or in a bowl as a condiment to be added to whatever you’re eating. the flavor is really garlicky and compliments many types of dishes. i’ve only attempted to make it once since returning but ivan and i made a version with kale last week and it was really good. it packs a punch and is loaded with kale, lemon, garlic and parsley so beyond being delicious, it’s actually good for you. serve on fries like we did, or along side a piece of steak or with a side of crusty bread. but probably don’t plan on kissing anyone after, the garlic really sticks around!   -joanie

• bake fries according to the package’s instructions. heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on a skillet on medium heat. place the skirt steak on heated skillet. cook on each side for about 7 minutes. we prefer ours medium well to serve with the fries. set aside, cover with foil for 10 minutes and then dice.

• to assemble, place the fries on a platter and add the steak, red onion, avocado and dollops of chimichurri throughout. as an option we served ours with our sriracha dipping sauce which is a combination of mayo and sriracha.
