A Black & White Friday

I must say one of the best things about 3 day weekends is the 4 day work week that follows, Happy Friday!

Very excited we will finally be getting our new couch delivered tomorrow, so I will be sure to take some decor pictures to share with you on Monday, and then Sunday I’m looking forward to doing pretty much nothing except maybe trying to make a primalized version of  chicken francesca. Last night Michael and I were watching one of our favorite shows “Restaurant Impossible” and Chef Robert Irvine made a delicious looking chicken francesca. Michael then notifies me that this is one of his favorite Italian dishes. How has he not told me this before? We’ve never had this back in New York with his big Italian family either. Challenge accepted. I’m thinking I’ll serve it over zucchini “pasta”. It is also the Oscar’s on Sunday night, so I may have to check out the red carpet gowns, always fun to see what everyone is wearing!

Today I’m wearing a sweater I picked up at H&M for just $15 on my Monday shopping trip. It is really well made, even the stripes line up, so it was definitely worth the money. Paired it with a floaty white blouse and skinny jeans, and then added a gorgeous gold and pearl necklace I received from Bon Lemon to complete it. I was so excited when I pulled this necklace out of the box, all of my pearls are paired with silver so this is a nice change, and is a great deal at $28.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Will you be watching the Oscar’s?
