What I wore (and cooked)

Meeting at BR Area Foundation
(looking into the sunny window)
Downtown in front of
State Capital

What I wore:
red/orange wool skirt from J. Crew (50% off on Black Friday)
dark purple v neck sweater  from Ann Taylor (50% off  on Black Friday)
dark brown tweed blazer  from  Jones New York (very old- from JC Penny)
dark brown tall boots from Bass
brown and gold "cowboy" belt from Dillards (similar to the one Jessica Simpson wears in the Weight watcher's ad here)

What I cooked:

Cold grilled chicken Greek pasta salad. Original recipe here.
I baked two chicken breasts in a little olive oil and mustard
I boiled half a box of wheat pasta and added two diced tomatoes, a diced cucumber, half of a diced red onion and a cup of feta cheese.
The original recipe had a dressing for the salad, but I thought it was good without it and I skipped the dressing. My husband thought it was dry.

Loving your bright red skirt! I have had that pasta salad and it is delicious. Throw in some fresh mozzarella and it's even better. Heather

I have a weakness for red-orange lately, it's ridiculous. I love your skirt!
