What I Wore Link-Up :: French Connection

Today is going to be a day of running errands and hanging with my little man, so today's look is all about comfort. I fell in love with this bicycle T-shirt from French Connection the second it caught my eye. Paired with some long denim shorts and flats, I am ready to take on the day.

T-shirt: French Connection (Marshalls) // Denim Shorts: Buffalo David Bitton (TJ Maxx)  // Flats: Nine West (TJ Maxx) // Watch: Michael Kors

Did I mention that my shirt kind-of matches my son's diapers??? I am just loving The Honest Company's new Spring designs.

Easter :: Asparagus & Cheese Tart Recipe

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter!! We had an absolutely fabulous celebration here at our home. I ended up making an oh so yummy looking asparagus and cheese tart, along with some other goodies. It was scrumptious!

Recipe from Martha Stuart:

  • Flour, for work surface
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
  • 5 1/2 ounces (2 cups) Gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 1 1/2 pounds medium or thick asparagus (I only used about 1/2 pound)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


Store-bought puff pastry works well in this savory tart; thaw it according to package instructions. Emmentaler or Fontina cheese can be substituted for the Gruyere.


Step 1:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a floured surface, roll the puff pastry into a 16-by-10-inch rectangle. Trim uneven edges. Place pastry on a baking sheet. With a sharp knife, lightly score pastry dough 1 inch in from the edges to mark a rectangle. Using a fork, pierce dough inside the markings at 1/2-inch intervals. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes.

Step 2:
Remove pastry shell from oven, and sprinkle with Gruyere cheese. Trip the bottoms of the asparagus spears to fit crosswise inside the tart shell; arrange in a single layer over Gruyere, alternating ends and tips. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake until spears are tender. 20-25 minutes.

I definitely would recommend trying this recipe. It was a big hit (even with my husband who isn't the biggest fan of asparagus).

I hope everyone's Easter was as happy as this little guy in a bucket of plastic eggs ;) This image just cracks me up! He is such a ham!!

Friday's Fab Favorites Link Up :: Black Lace

I am loving this Xhilaration black lace skirt from Target today. It is drizzly and dreary outside, so I wasn't feeling the bright Spring colors today. It was black on black for work today.

Other things I'm wearing:
Shoes: Merona (Target)
Belt: Hand me down from my mom

Happy Friday everyone! I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend and Happy Easter with loved ones. 
He is Risen!!
