Ultimate Chopped Salad + Chambray Romper

When we were in NYC a few months ago we had lunch at Fred's at Barney's.   I had their chopped salad and loved it.  This is a spin on it!  The one I had there didn't have blue cheese or bacon but I had some on hand so I added it in.  Let's be real bacon and cheese are never a bad idea, EVER.  
I used green goddess dressing for mine- local friends Dellz's has the best goddess dressing and they sell it by the bottle now.  I always buy it when I pick up lunch.  It's so good I could drink it.  This would also be great served with a balsamic dressing as well. 

|| U L T I M A T E   C H O P P E D   S A L A D ||

- 1 head romaine shredded thinly
- 1 avocado chopped and drizzled with lemon juice and salt
- 1 pear diced
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- haricot verts (french green beans), chopped into 1 inch pieces
- 6 pieces cooked and crumbled bacon
- 1/4 cup blue cheese
- 1 rotisserie chicken shredded
- green goddess or balsamic vinaigrette dressing

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Place the green beans in and boil for 3 minutes.  Remove and place in an ice bath.  Drain and then chop into 1 inch pieces.

Cook bacon and crumble.

Assemble lettuce, tomatoes, pears, avocados, beans, bacon, cheese, red onion and chicken in a large bowl.  Toss all together before serving and drizzle with dressing.  

I have decided on Wednesday's with my recipes I am going to share my favorite dressing room finds from that week,  This week it was this adorable chambray romper.  Super soft and such a cute fit.  It runs TTS I am wearing a size 4.  It is currently 30% off with no code needed.

Stripe Tee Shirt Dress + Neutral Shoes I am Loving

Today is all about shoes!  I wanted to share a few favorites that are great for now and into the Summer. 

Outfit Details:

My tee shirt dress is under $50 and the perfect casual dress.   I went with a size medium because I wanted a loose boxy fit and sometimes dresses in the junior's section run small.  I am wearing the gray color, but it also comes in a white/navy option.

These Rag and Bone booties are an investment but they are my favorite booties.   I can't tell you often I wear them.  Added bonus they are comfortable I can wear them all day and they don't bother my feet.  I bought these probably 4 years ago and they have held up really well. 

I love this new style out for Spring with the cut out detail.
This BP version is very similar to the Rag and Bone ones and under $100.  They come in several colors.  
I also wanted to mention that my favorite slip on sneakers by Ugg are now out in 2 new versions.  I am normally a 9 and did a 9.5 in these.
I am wearing the tan version here.

A few other neutrals I am loving.  Many of these are under $100 too.  Nordstrom always is my go-to for shoes because they carry so many great brands in different price ranges.  They also offer free shipping and do price matching.
