The plan for today’s post was to show a few summer dresses and how I will style them when the weather cooperates. Since cool air and rainy, overcast skies have returned, I’m instead sharing another casual look for running errands.
On Tuesday, I wore a striped shirt in lavender and white with dark wash ankle jeans and a tan bag with the Linea Paolo flats I found on sale at Nordstrom last year. The bamboo detail silver earrings were a long-ago gift from Mr. Mickey, and the watch and ring are old, so I’ll share links to similar current items.
Since I eat mostly fresh produce, I shop about every four days. The jar in front holds extraordinary St. Dalfour giant French prunes. They are a special treat. I sometimes have a square of dark chocolate after breakfast which is often a bowl of oatmeal made using almond milk. I include nuts, half a banana, and frozen blueberries. I mostly drink water but have two cups of black coffee each morning and sometimes have a cup of tea later in the day. I keep a bottle of Prosecco on hand in case we need to celebrate something.
I removed all the produce from the plastic wrapping as soon as I took this photo. Lemons, avocado, mushrooms, tomatoes, bananas, and onion go in the wire basket or a pretty bowl. The cucumber, romaine, carrots, and celery get washed and wrapped in paper towels, and placed in the fridge’s crisper drawers. I place nuts in Glasslock dishes with air-tight covers and keep them in the fridge.
I still get many questions about what I eat. The lunch dish above includes roasted red pepper hummus, fresh greens, celery, browned tempeh, and grains with lentils, beans, mushrooms, and onions. The bowl is a little larger than my outstretched hand. Lunch is my largest meal of the day, and I often skip the evening meal.
I used the timer on my Sony Alpha a5100 camera and a tripod to take these photos. I am retired now, so randomly published posts no longer include collaborations or sponsored products. My items are rarely new, so I share links for similar current elements. Shopping links sometimes allow me to earn a small commission at no extra charge to you.
