it’s the last friday in march, gang! which means three whole months have zipped by in a nano-second. at least it seems that way to me. next week we’ll grab our umbrellas. those april showers will soon be upon us. so let’s bid adieu to march with a refreshing cocktail and an easy sheet pan dinner. don’t worry oscar is here for his weekly gig just like always. although he sure wanted to stay outside a bit longer. it doesn’t get dark until 7:30ish these days. hooray! 

today’s post is short and sweet as mr. style and i are headed to panama city beach for the weekend. this is my first travel campaign. i’m delighted to tour the beaches of the panhandle of florida. it’s the perfect time of year for a beach vacay as the temps will be a balmy seventy-five. they don’t call florida the sunshine state for anything. blues skies will greet us.

today’s ootd is simple and chic. and i’m taking a cue from my style uniform (blazer, button-down, blue jeans, and ballet flats). but i’m certain you noticed i exchanged the button-down for a graphic tee (old similar here and here) and the ballet flats for pink suede kitten heels. i’m sporting a new pair of boyfriend blue jeans from Banana Republic Factory. boyfriend jeans have a relaxed fit. i’m wearing a size eight but i wish i sized down to a six. a pair of heels glam up blue jeans in no time flat. but the star of the show is a simple tweed blazer (old, similar here and here). and we all know how much i love blazers.

    The ootd, minus the heels, really grabs me! I have a new navy “Chanel” jacket with fringe that I am dying to wear in a week or two when spring decides to stay in NW PA.

    The dinner looks scrumptious, and is something I am going to make for myself on Sunday!! Thanks for the idea.

    Hve a safe & fun trip!

      Hi Beth – I love your blog and have purchased a lot of what you have worn. I look forward to it. Where are the most current ones? I somehow end up looking at outfits that are from a few years ago.

    Confused by the recipe. We’re there steps left out??? Where does the hosin sauce go and are the instructions for the beans, potatoes, or both??? Clarification, please!!!
    Happy weekend.

      The hoisin sauce is brushed over the tenderloins before cooking. I think there was just a major typo in the recipe and potatoes are mixed in the large bowl, not the green beans. I’m going to try this soon. It looks great, and so easy!

    • Beth Djalali

      this might help clear things up:
      Arrange green beans in center of baking sheet.
      In the same bowl, toss the potatoes with 2 tablespoons of olive oil 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper.
      these two sentences were inadvertently left out of the recipe today. and the hoisin sauce is brushed over the top of the tenderloins as a glaze – the recipe included this step.
      hope this helps!

    Recipe directions don’t make sense ??

    The recipe is somewhat confusing. I make something similar and the potatoes go in first, then put in meat with green beans going on sheet pan last, otherwise the beans are way too done and potatoes not enough. Just checking as I love sheet pan recipes, clean up a breeze!
    Love the outfit and jackets always look so stylish.

      the great thing about recipes is that they can be tweaked to suit your taste. but this recipe called for the green beans to be placed in the middle, potatoes on the side, and tenderloins on top. that’s the way i assembled the sheet pan then popped it in the oven. the green beans came out yummy. i think the tenderloins protect them from becoming too crisp.

      Loving your recipes!! Are they on pinterest?
      You look adorable, think I need a new tweed jacket. As always, I just love your boy, Oscar!

  • Ellen Baptie

    The recipe looks delicious! I think step 2 is confusing. Perhaps it refers to potatoes rather than green beans, as stated? If so, are green beans seasoned before adding to the sheet pan?

    • Beth Djalali
      March 29, 2019 at 4:13 pm

      these two sentences were inadvertently omitted:
      Arrange green beans in center of baking sheet.
      In the same bowl, toss the potatoes with 2 tablespoons of olive oil 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper.
      hope this clears things up!
