Converted: to Fall Clothing and Barbeque

La mode: Well the weekend sure did fly by! Not that I’m surprised; they always do. Friday night was a much needed laid-back night, but Saturday and Sunday were busy. Aaron helped me get my classroom set up Saturday afternoon, and in the evening we met some friends for sushi (which was beautiful… I wish I would have taken pictures!). 


Shirt: Gap; jeans: Loft; earrings: Kohl's; flats: Gap

This is what I wore yesterday, for running errands and whatnot. My inspiration was from the photo below of Karolina Kurkova from Two BirdsInspiration Monday. I exchanged white skinnies for a blue denim pair for this look, because the only white jeans I have are wide-leg and they didn't look quite right. 



Wearing this made me feel like fall is just around the corner, because this shirt paired with jeans was pretty much my fall weekend uniform last year! And it doesn’t look like I’m getting tired of it anytime soon. What will your fall weekend uniform be, do you know yet?




La nourriture: Living in the Kansas City area, I’m surrounded by renowned barbeque joints. For most of my life, I’ve been oblivious to them; I never really liked barbeque. But recently I’ve been experimenting with barbeque sauce a little in my cooking, and I have to admit it’s grown on me. I might just be converted!


So, when I saw this recipe on C + C Marriage Factory, I knew it was one I needed to try. (Oh, and the bacon that's in the dry rub didn't hurt either!) I switched it up a little by using chicken tenders rather than kebabs of chicken breasts, and I also added a bit of cayenne to the dry rub. I absolutely love how they turned out! The combination of the dry rub with the barbeque sauce really packed each bite of chicken with flavor. If you’re a barbeque fan this is one you must try!

Alongside, I cooked some corn on the cob. I used this recipe for Elote from The Kitchn as my guide, but I substituted parmesan for the Cotija cheese. Corn on the cob tastes amazing right now, I’m trying to eat as much as I can this summer before it disappears!
