Statement Jewelry with Workwear Staples + Roasted Tomatoes

There never seems to be enough time in a day so I find I keep gravitating towards the usual work uniform of a blazer, skinny black pants or jeans, and heels, as you can see here. I just want to point out that throwing on a piece of statement jewelry really does make a big difference towards looking more polished and less casual.

I haven't been doing so myself lately, but as you can see from the photos above, just one piece of statement jewelry can make a big impact on how you look, making it more suitable for work or going out and giving the impression that you put effort into looking more presentable. The necklace I have on is from Forever 21 (similar one here and a Spring version here). I'm also wearing my favorite H&M blazer (old)  in both photos and hope it will hold up from all the wear it's been getting recently.

Below are some more options but there are also great inexpensive and stylish options you can easily find at Forever 21 and H&M too.

Here's a recipe of Roasted Goronzola Tomatoes that I find pairs very nicely with steak if you do make steak following the dry-aged steak recipe here:


Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

2 medium-size firm-ripe plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 small clove garlic, minced
1/3 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoon plain dried breadcrumbs
3 tablespoon finely crumbled gorgonzola cheese

1. Using a teaspoon or grapefruit spoon, remove seeds from tomatoes; place cut side down on paper towels to drain, about 5 minutes.
2. Mix 1 tbsp of the oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl; add tomatoes and gently toss in mixture until coated. Marinate 10 minutes.
3. Combine breadcrumbs and gorgonzola. Place tomatoes, cut side up, on a small baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Fill tomatoes with breadcrumb mixture; drizzle with remaining oil.
4. Roast 20 minutes or until crumb topping is golden brown and tomatoes are slightly softened.

Serves 2.

Leaving you with the fortune cookie quote, "Take the chance while you still have the choice."
