With the weather warming up, my army jacket has become a staple in my Spring wardrobe. I picked up my Lily Aldridge for Velvet by Graham & Spencer army jacket from Nordstrom a couple months ago. It’s sold out since, but is still available in other colors. Otherwise, the classic green can also be found here.

And the taste…UNREAL! The simple combination of olive oil and tangy balsamic, mixed with both dried and fresh herbs is remarkably potent, while the farro, containing over 40% more fiber than brown rice, works to lower cholesterol and keep your energy level stable throughout the day. The salad is adapted from this recipe, and after several requests from my instagrammed photo, I decided I couldn’t keep this one a secret any longer. Read Full Article →
