Two lovely outfits from ZARA

I absolutely love that green shopper and the orange dress, what a wonderful bold match. For me it's a 10/10. The print dress is lovely, the fabric looks really comfy and soft. Well done again ZARA !

Playing with my GSH flat clutch

I don't use my Balenciaga flat clutch very often but i love it, so i just pulled it out of the closet to make some pics with my new H&M dress. This will be my outfit of the day, with a jacket of course since it's chilly here, not a true summer weather. 

More shopping...

I got this grey top 70% silk 30% cashmere from Fine Collection, a nice brand that makes great knitwear with soft and high quality fabric. Very simple therefore classic and will stay in my closet for a long time.
Worn with my Bershka jean skirt and Balenciaga 02 flat brass first.

Another pair of Dickers

These Isabel Marant boots are so addictive. I bought a pair of miel a while ago and decided to get the black suede ones last week. They are so comfy, easy to wear in spring, autumn, winter and also when it's chilly in summer. 

Black suede is back again in this collection along with the same taupe as last season and cognac a darker beige brown than miel. The fabric shoe bags print has changed from the previous season, the material feels thicker, i like last season's shoe bags more.
Here are my miel suede ones from the previous season.

Today's lunch !

This is what i had today : risotto with mushrooms chicken & bacon, salad with pequillos red pepper & goat cheese, a great Bourgogne white wine. Then some meringues made by dh with coffee. All i can say is that all was really yummy. I worked out at the gym for an hour, so i deserved a good meal, right? LOL

Salad with goat cheese & red pepper

Mushroom risotto with chicken & bacon

Vanilla & chocolate meringues, only with the white of the eggs and sugar.

Here is the recipe of the mushroom risotto i google translated. The chicken was added when i cooked mushrooms with butter and garlic, then added the cream. The secret of the risotto is the rice, Arborio is a good italian brand. And do not leave the risotto alone in the kitchen, it's like a kid, you have to watch it all the time and add the broth to it when the liquid is almost gone in the pan.

An easy recipe to enjoy your favorite mushrooms.
