if it’s friday, then it’s time to unwind with a cocktail. and maybe an appetizer to go with it. but we all know fridays include oscar, and it’s great to be back home with my favorite german shepherd. my oh my but the landscape has changed in the space of a week. last friday mr. style and i were walking along a warm caribbean beach. today, it’s nothing but gray skies, rain, and more rain.
but i’m toasty warm inside the comfort of my home, and that’s where i’ll stay the remainder of the day flipping through cookbooks and gathering favorite recipes for thanksgiving which is two short weeks away! since i’ve been perusing Ina Garten’s cookbooks (don’t you just love her?), i’m sharing two recipes from her latest release Cook Like a Pro. the classic daiquiris are delicious with lots of freshly squeezed lime juice. the original recipe called for dark rum but i had bacardi gold rum on hand and guess what? that’s exactly what Ina suggested to use!

cashmere sweaters are perfect for a cold, rainy day. a pair of slim leg ankle pants and cap-toe ballet flats add spit and polish but keep this ootd casual. style tip: when in doubt as to footwear i always reach for a classic silhouette like cap-toe ballet flats.
another week has come and gone. oscar and i wish each of you a lovely weekend wherever you are!

Beth- love your glasses! Could you share where you got them? Thanks!
hi sharon. my glasses are Tory Burch. not certain what the model number is. they were purchased at the optometrists office. xo
Have a cozy weekend. We are just on the edge of a band of wet stuff, but have kept dry here. Very dreary and chilly, though. Oscar and Ollie must be excited to have you both back at the ranch. Love the sweater and pants.
i am all over chunky turtlenecks this year. although i love the streamlined ones too. but a chunky turtleneck adds relaxed charm to my outfit which i love. xo
