One would think I wouldn’t have much of an appetite after Taste of the Nation last night – not so.
And it’s not like I worked out all that hard this morning.
30 Min Elliptical and Arms do not an athlete make.
Yet I still grabbed a snack at 10:30.
I was trying to tide myself over for a luncheon hosted by Mindy’s Catering today in my office. An apple would have been a better choice, I realize this.
Goat Cheese, Walnut & Dried Cherry Salad
Potato Salad on the right made with Blue Cheese Crumbles – OMG
Curried Couscous with Raisins
Salmon Skewers with Spicy Avocado Sauce
Assorted Wraps & Sandwiches
Bars & Brownies
I sampled a bit of everything. Hands down though, potato salad was my favorite. It was really light, and I typically hate potato salad!
How to Series, Having Signature Style
So, probably the single most important item a woman needs to have in her closet is a Little Black Dress.
Flattering photo of me in the locker room this morning, huh?
There are a multitude of reasons you should have this item in your closet:
- It’s versatile;
- Perfect for work;
- Easily transitions from day to night;
- Classic piece, but can have a trendy edge with accessories;
- You never know when you’ll have to go to a funeral 🙁
The last one may be morbid, but it’s true. I have had two funerals in my lifetime where I found myself without anything appropriate to wear that was black. Don’t be caught off guard.
On a happier note, what I love about this dress is that you could literally wear it five days in a row and change the look each day so that no one would be the wiser.
Here are some of my favorite items to pair it with:
Chunky Strand of Pearls
Bright Colored Jacket or Sweater
So, moral of today’s tip is to get a basic black dress. Don’t worry about spending a bit more on this item either – it’s a classic piece that will pay you back dividends over the long haul!
