Monogram Fixation + Green Bean Salad

I'm not quite sure why, but it seems I'm on some kind of personal monogram fixation right now. I recently received my H&M online purchase, which included a top and backpack that have the letter "B" on it. The top has a chain link detail at the neckline, which is quite delicate and is unfortunately already coming apart since I carelessly threw it in the wash but I still like it with its subtle sheer leopard jacquard pattern. I might bring it to the tailor to take in the sides to make it more fitted on the body. The backpack is just really cute and I bought it in mind to wear it on my next hiking trip. I mentioned purchasing a "B" monogram necklace here and am happy with the size.

And from this post, I also have the Project Social T 'Varsity' Sweatshirt with "A" on it now.  I've always liked the idea of more personalized pieces but it's really a big ongoing trend right now, which is probably why it's so readily available everywhere.

While on the subject of the letter "B", here's my Green Bean Salad recipe! :)


1/2 lb green beans (about 1.5 cups), ends removed
2 tablespoons chopped pecans
1 tablespoon diced red onion
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1. Toast pecans by baking at 400 degrees in the oven for five minutes.
2. Blanch green beans for 2-3 minutes until brightly green. Drain and dry.
3. Whisk oil, balsamic, lemon juice, dijon, and salt and pepper together as dressing. Set aside.
4. Toss the rest of the ingredients lightly with the dressing mixture to combine.

Serves 3.
