Looks like we survived another day!
Between writing assignments, some of my coworkers and I slipped out for lunch at Café Annie, a Lebanese restaurant in Orlando’s business district. I’ve ordered takeout from Annie’s several different times, but this was the first time I ate in!
The black bean soup that I ordered was spot-on, but I felt like the café salad was definitely overpriced for literally five pieces of Iceberg lettuce, a cucumber sliver and two tomato slices. C’mon guys, you can do better than that!
At least I had great company – it was an awesome bonding moment with my team!
As we were leaving, I overheard the owner reaming out his busboy. I’m not talking about constructive criticism here – I mean a harsh, name-calling, belittling diatribe. What made it worse is that the two times I’ve previously visited, I’ve also heard him speak just as demeaningly to his other employees, and my coworkers have passed on their own horror stories about his temper. Not cool at all! I know not everyone is always sunshine and giggles, but his demeanor was so off-putting that I don’t feel good about bringing him my business.
I’ve got a barbeque to go to tonight, so it’s time to slip out of the work wear and into something I can play volleyball in!
Dress, Susana Monaco. Belt, Vintage. Shoes, Manolo Blahnik
I think the game should take care of my 30 minutes of exercise for the day! Should be a blast – I haven’t played volleyball since trying out for the team my senior year of high school (I didn’t make it!)
Have you ever been so offended by the attitudes of a clerk, salesperson, waiter, etc that you have been completely turned off to the establishment? What would make you bring your business elsewhere?
Good morning! Happy Friday to you!
You ready for a little bit of fashion action this morning?
I’m not here to talk about learning to accept your chubby, wrinkly toes (feet are always funky-looking in one way or another – I’ll live with the sausage toes!)
I’m here to talk about the beauty of an icon.
The teeniest, tiniest detail on a shoe that can make any woman salivate: the little red sole.
I scored my first pair of Louboutins the other day (far far FAR from retail price!) and have been dying to wear them. I’m not the kind of person to hide away something “nice” for a “special moment” – if I pay good money for them, the hell if I’m going to tuck them in my closet where they gather dust!
That’s why, for this regular, ordinary Friday, I broke them out and built my entire outfit around them:
Tank: Rebecca Beeson; Skirt: Anthropologie (Maeve); Shoes: Christian Louboutin.
Shall way say that today will not be a day that I walk to work?
Since I had almost half a container of blackberries in my fridge, teetering on the verge of being lost to the too-old-to-eat-fruit monster, I planned my entire breakfast around them.
- Whole Foods 365 Organic Honey Crunch cereal
- Almond slivers
- Chia seeds
- Almond Milk
I have a feeling the rest of my day will be planned around coffee runs and mini meetings. Good stuff!
See ya when it’s the weekend!
Do you prefer to save your “nicer” things for fancy occasions, or are you a wear-whenever kind of person? And do you ever plan an entire outfit around a single piece?
