PANZANELLA

panzanella | designlovefest

whenever we make something vegetarian i find that we end up countering the lack of meat with a lot of dairy/cheese. ivan and i had a strong urge to throw some feta or mozzarella on top of this salad but we resisted and instead focused on the vegetables and using great bread and olive oil. it ended up being really colorful, delicious and filling and is completely vegan! the bread matters, we got ours at cookbook in echo park which is our favorite market. visit your local bakery, buy some good bread, it’s always worth it! for the red onion, i did half roasted and half fresh, i liked the combo of the flavors but up to you on that part. – joanie

• start by pre-heating your oven to 375 degrees. in a large bowl add the cubed bread and drizzle with olive oil. toss until lightly coated, don’t over oil! spread onto a lined baking sheet and add the yellow bell pepper, olives and half of the red onions to the same baking sheet. drizzle oil on the vegetables and olives, mix. sprinkle salt on everything and bake for 15-20 minutes or until bread is golden brown. remove from oven and set aside.

• cube the tomatoes and dice the Persian cucumbers. assemble the salad by first plating with micro greens. add the bread, bell peppers, onions, olives and tomatoes and cucumbers. drizzle with big splash of olive oil, lots of fresh lemon, salt, pepper and garnish with basil and avocado.

we plated these individually but you could also put everything on one big salad board and serve it that way. you really can’t go wrong with this salad, it’s so colorful and fresh, it’s a crowd pleaser!

STYLED | HANDBAG UPDATE

handbag round up | designlovefest

i’ve been carrying the same Cuero and Mor crossbody bag for years. i love it but it’s getting pretty worn in and feels like it’s time for an update. i’m the kinda girl that buys one bag and carries it until it’s worn to death. i don’t like having multiple bags and swapping things back and forth. i inevitably forget something in one of my other bags and it ends up just being a hassle. since i carry it with everything it has to be a versatile color and also a shape that can go from day to night. here is a round up of bags that i have my eye on, everything from target to Gucci (i like to look at round ups and see if you can pick the most and least expensive items, hard to do!).  – joanie

do you have a handbag you love? i’m all ears!

THE CASE FOR A RED SWIMSUIT

red swim | designlovefest

this photo popped up on my pinterest and i was really drawn to the clean lines and bright red color. i’m generally speaking not a red girl but i’ve been more in to it more lately. it’s such a flattering color on so many different skin tones. i’m a big believer in bathing suits being practical  (into subtly sexy swimwear) and this one fits the bill. you can shop a similar top and bottom by COS.

also into these one piece styles, especially the color blocked one!
