Whenever we have people over, I always run to Whole Foods to pick up fresh guacamole and mango salsa. I love making my own guacamole but was always hesitant to replicate their mango salsa--cutting one up is a challenge in itself. Well, this past weekend, I sucked it up and made a damn good mango salsa. And it was embarrassingly simple.
- 2 mangos (cutting instructions here)
- 1-2 fresh jalapeños (get rid of the seeds; use depending on preferred spiciness)
- handful of cherry tomatoes
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1 red onion
- small handful of cilantro, chopped
Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!

The best thing about summer? Possibly tomatoes. But really, bruschetta is possibly the easiest and tastiest appetizer out there. And since I'm just getting acclimated to my new house/kitchen, the easier the better. My recipe:
- container of mixed cherry tomatoes (or about 4 vine-ripened tomatoes)
- handful of basil leaves, chopped (I grabbed mine from the basil plant on my kitchen windowsill)
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 T evoo
- pinch of salt and pepper
- loaf of crusty bread
Mix the first five ingredients in a bowl and let sit for a half hour. Scoop tomatoes on bread and drizzle with balsamic glaze.

I've owned this skirt since 2007. Its a-line shape and subtle stripe is classic enough that it will stand the test of time. Every season, I usually pair it with a new top to keep it current. Repurposing old favorites by pairing them with new pieces helps me keep my closet fresh; most importantly, it helps me avoid a closet full of trendy items that I only wear once.
How long do you keep items in your closet?

As for me, I'm wearing a pair of cargo pants from 2009. Often times, some of my most random and inexpensive purchases end of being some of my favorites that I hold onto for years.

This is about as easy as it gets for me: loose button down, comfortable shorts and stylish flats. It's also called an "early morning meeting" outfit because it takes zero thought when I have 20 minutes to get ready. What do you tend to throw on when you're in a rush?
