Part two of my weekend included a shopping trip, sushi and normal Sunday stuff.
On Saturday afternoon I made a trip to Nordstrom Rack in search of white jeans (my favorite pair had an unfortunate encounter with red wine at a party that left them beyond saving :cry:). While I didn’t find any white jeans I did pick up a some white shorts along with several other things. I love Nordstrom Rack. It’s probably my top place to shop these days when I’m just looking for cute clothes to add to my wardrobe.
I actually ended up buying a whole outfit without realizing it. The shorts are Joe’s Jeans and the top is Tart and I’m obsessed! I love anything with an open/dramatic back.
I wasn’t going to look at shoes but a 5-minute wander through the shoe section left me with these perfect neutral wedges. I predict that I will get a ton of wear out of these. They were $34 AND they’re comfortable. Deal of the summer!
I also got this top for $16!
And this hoodie. I know it doesn’t look like much but it’s so insanely soft and really cute and comfortable on. I pretty much live in this type of stuff so it’s nice to have some non-Lulu in my collection. I think the retail on this was like $98 and I got it for a little over $30.
Well, there’s some PBR fashion for you. Expect another one of these posts in, oh…6 months or so. 😉
It was only right to take my new outfit out on the town so I met some friends at Sushi Guru on Saturday night. It’s my favorite sushi in Charlotte. We know the head sushi chef/owner so we decided to go with the “chef’s creation” dinner where he kind of creates a sushi experience based on what you like/he feels like making. We told him we’d eat anything but lower on the carbs so he started us out with this crab and avocado roll wrapped in cucumber and topped with an orange roe and a delicious sesame sauce. If you’ve never tried your sushi wrapped in cucumber, you must. It’s so good!
Our main course was a sampler platter. Starting at top left was the star of the plate. The chef created a glass pot with coffee beans, smoke and fish. When you opened the jar smoke escaped from it. The fish was left with a slight smoked flavor and absolutely melted in your mouth. He also included a tuna jalapeño roll, a fried wonton topped with what I can only describe as a tuna meatball and a cucumber wrapped, flash fried crab and tuna roll with shaved fennel and a citrus vinaigrette.
Each one of us agreed that this was hands-down the best sushi we have ever had.
Dessert was mango sorbet wrapped in mochi and served over a tangerine slice. I have a very soft spot in my heart for mochi so this was the perfect Asian-themed dessert for me.
Annnnddddd this pretty much sums up my Sunday. I got up to teach “yoga church” at 9:15 and brunch after with yoga friends. I came home and passed out with Sullie for an afternoon nap. The rest of my day involved a 4 mile run, a massage and a huge plate of roasted veggies.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Where is your favorite place to “bargain shop?” Clearly for me it’s Nordstrom Rack.
And shopping…love it, hate it or just “eh” about it? I used to LOVE to shop in high school and college but that has really died down over the years. I’d rather spend my money on good food, travel, house stuff, etc. these days.
