Happy Hump Day! This seems like such a long week after all the short holiday weeks…

I was determined to get going and out of the house early to go work from Starbucks today, sometimes when you work from home you have to force yourself to get dressed and out the door.

I had pinned this great picture of Gwen Stefani awhile back…

So of course once I found this sweatshirt-sweater on sale I knew I would be recreating it.

Instead of doing a skirt over leggings, I just wore my black skinnies, but everything else I kept pretty much the same. I went with my berry bag for a pop of color, and you can’t recreate a Gwen Stefani look without a red lip!

I also wanted to share this amazing recipe I made on Monday in the slow cooker – Balsamic Beef Roast from the Civilized Caveman. I was looking for something different than a traditional pot roast, and this was absolutely amazing!

Only changes I made were instead of searing it, I simply put it on top of a bed of baby carrots and sliced onions after seasoning (I rarely sear meat before it goes on the Crockpot) and then I added a few splashes of white wine to tomato sauce and balsamic mixture before pouring over.

I served with some fresh boiled green beans tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Great outfit remix, this reminds me I need to pick up a black scarf sometime. All my scarves are prints.
