cheers to friday, gang! we made it through another week. for me, it was by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin as i’ve been sniffling and coughing my way through each day. so when it came to meal prep for fridays with oscar soup won hands down (mr. style has the sniffles too). chicken soup is always good for the soul when you’re under the weather. and i threw out some immune boosting choices like carrot, ginger soup that got a thumbs down from my significant other. but there was unanimous agreement when italian wedding soup was mentioned. so i grabbed my recipe from the archives and got to work. this is a hearty meal with the addition of meatballs. add a salad and crusty bread and you’re set.
there was finally a break in the weather today with the sun and warmer temps making an appearance. the warm weather will be sticking around, but not the sun… anyhoo, a refreshing springlike cocktail sounded good. aperol immediately came to mind so i flipped through the pages of The New Cocktail Hour and found Intro to Aperol. i’m not necessarily a gin drinker but the addition of aperol and the bitters make a mighty fine cocktail. go ahead, try it. i think you will like it.
i finally broke down and bought coupe glasses. the shape is so delicate and romantic. how could a cocktail not look good when poured into a coupe glass? exactly!
friday’s outfit is laid-back with a utility shirt from J.Crew and cropped flared jeans (similar here). the suede pumps are from Ann Taylor (similar here) and the belt is one of my favorites from Ralph Lauren (similar here).

oscar keeps one eye on ollie who just happens to be lounging in the corner out of sight.
italian wedding soup is an easy recipe to whip up. and it makes a big batch so there’s always leftovers.
