Midweek Lunch Feast

This lunch fed my mom and fiancé. 
Apple Yogurt Coffee cake, made from a post on Cupcakes and Cashmere.
Salad had grilled grape tomatoes and mushrooms, cubed mozzarella and smoke mozzarella, and basil on a bed, all on a bed of sweet baby spring mix. 

Normally I would prefer to have had fish with this dairy meal instead of sausage, but BF is scared of fish, so chicken sausage it was.

Lab Girl Chic - silk, lace & gold

It can often be a challenge to dress for a casual laboratory environment.  This Lab Girl Chic series will be a guide to dressing for the laboratory setting.  Where large cocktail rings or adorable cut out flats just don't make sense when working in tight medical gloves with a wide range of reagents, and manicures have a shelf life of 1-2 working days!

Aqua white blouse, Ann Taylor Loft cardigan and jeans, Geox flats, TJMaxx bangle, gifted necklace

I really like the mix of the silky white blouse with the delicate and lace fabric on the nude pink carding, it feels so light and feminine.  Pairing with a dark wash jean makes this outfit look more mature.  Comfortable shoes, like Geox makes are a must for me when walking around all day.  I also like a good grip on my shoes so I won't be worried about slipping while carrying reagents.

Monday Reflection

My weekend in pictures
A new american flag pillow sits bellow a picture of the Brooklyn bridge- seems rather fitting on the week of 9/11.
Finally got some coasters, wrote out thank you cards for our engagement party, and worked on the blog .
 Sunday Fun Day, my outfit for some shopping at Loft with my mom. Banana Republic Petites skirt , Armani Exchange gold mesh tank, and Free People jacket (it's on sale now!)
 Sunday evening, relaxing at home, watching the game, FH enjoying some Thomas Jefferson Tavern Ale in our beer glasses.
