Last week was one of those “it’s always SOMETHING” times chez nous. First, le Monsieur had been under the weather since the previous weekend with a really nasty cold. Work was busy. Then on Friday night I took our dog Coco to the pet emergency room as she seemed to be having trouble breathing. (Turned out not to be serious, but still meant a late night once they were done with all of the x-rays and treatment.) Finally yesterday we had some help with jeune homme and I was able to get out of the house to catch up on all of my errands and grocery shopping. So by last night, even though we had planned dinner out and arranged a sitter, neither of us was in the mood for a big production. This was as dressed up as I got.
We decided that some delicious food in a casual environment was what we needed. East Borough is a favorite local spot for yummy Vietnamese. This was our second time there, and we were not disappointed.
Who am I to argue?
Tilapia ceviche, Vietnamese style…
My favorite dish was the Banh Xeo, crab and mushroom crepe with lettuce wraps and mint leaves.
I accessorized with earrings and these wonderful sea glass bracelets from Tamera Beardsley (thank you, Tamera!!). I love how the color of the glass beads plays off the olive jacket. Yes, it’s still cool enough in the evenings that a jacket is a good idea, especially if dining outdoors.
These sandals are quickly becoming my go-to casual summer footwear. They’re super comfortable and sleek. If the current Birkenstock trend leaves you cold, simple sandals like these are a great alternative. Went a little crazy with the pedicure: that’s Essie “Coat Azure” on my toes.
I’m going to take the rest of this week off, but will pull some oldies-but-goodies from the archives to take you through the July 4th holiday weekend. I have some really nifty new finds to share, and will be back with new stuff on Monday July 7.
Don’t forget…if you haven’t yet entered to win the JORD Wood Watch, you have two more days…
