So clearly I put this outfit together before I realized the weather was going to skyrocket to almost 70 degrees! Still, it doesn’t mean all is lost. Nope, I’ll just ditch the blazer and roll up my sleeves when I’m outside. I’ve got a doctor’s appointment this morning anyway so the fewer things I have to take off the better.

Also, it’s been awhile since I’ve paired stripes and leopard. I used to wear this combination all the time but gave it a break because I was pretty sure you were sick of seeing it. But guess what? It’s baaaack!

In other news, Wednesday night I had the best time with the Windy City Blogger Collective and Blaze Pizza! Blaze was amazing and treated us like rockstars. We even got to go behind the counter and make our own pizzas. Complete with aprons and hats.

Blaze Pizza is an awesome concept. You can order straight off the menu or, just like Subway or Chipotle, you can tell them what ingredients you want. Gluten free or regular crust? White, pesto, spicy or regular red sauce? Your choice of five different cheese (or mix and match), tons of veggies and lots of meat.  The crust is super thin so each pizza takes minimal time to cook. Great for when you want to grab something on your way home or just need a quick meal.

Blaze even has a liquor license now so you can have your pizza with a beer or some wine.

And don’t forget your s’mores pie for dessert!
