Hey friends! Well here we are and it’s the last Wednesday of January. What? So crazy! I haven’t done a What’s Up Wednesday post in a while so today it’s Style Six with a side of What’s Up Wednesday. Today is a special day in the Richardson family. It’s Erin’s birthday. God knew what he was doing when he put her and Benny together. This girl right here fits our family like a puzzle piece we didn’t even know we were missing. She’s a joy and we love her.
For the Style Six portion of this post, let’s do a little recap of…
WHAT I’VE BEEN WEARING
I just got this adorable polka dot sweater from Chico’s and couldn’t wait to wear it. I’ve told y’all before that their sweaters are super soft. I’m typically a zero at Chico’s. If you aren’t familiar with their sizing, they have 00, 0, 1, 2, 3 & 4. I have this same sweater in solid black in a zero, but I wanted it to be a little roomier for leggings and jeans, so I sized up to a 1. If you are looking for a self esteem boost, Chico’s is also good for that. LOL I have never been a zero before. HA!
This hot pink sweater was a major score when Target had a huge sweater sale last month. I’ve seen it on a lot of people, and once you wear it, it’s easy to see why. It’s super comfy and equally as cute. It comes in several colors, so if bright pink isn’t your color, you have options.
I’ve said it numerous times, but I had no idea I’d love this pullover so much. It’s such a great piece to have for casual wear or cool weather workouts. I find myself reaching for it over and over. The tee underneath is the perfect layering tee and long enough for leggings. I also have it in black.
WHAT WE’VE BEEN EATING
If you follow on IG, most of this will comes as no big surprise. I share what we’re having for dinner from time to time, and have remembered several times to do just that.
Last night we had one of the easiest and tastiest dinners. We both love it, and it’s so crazy easy to get on the table in no time. I use the mushroom risotto from Trader Joe’s and also the frozen mushroom medley. I cook the salmon in a skillet sprayed with non-stick spray. I season the salmon with S/P, dill and the Everything Seasoning from TJ’s, then add a thin pat of butter on near the end. Honestly, so easy and delicious.
Monday night we had something we haven’t had in a loooong time. Ribs. They were delish. Kent wondered how many he’d have to eat to get the “meat sweats”. LOL This recipe is not your typical rib recipe. You boil them first. Yes, you read that right. You boil them, and that makes them tender, then put them on the grill to finish. I have another recipe that makes them even more tender that you make in the crock-pot and then finish on the grill. I’ll have to share that one too.
2 onions quartered
Celery Tops (or just use the entire stalks)
2 tsp Thyme
1/2 tsp pepper
Water to cover
Bring to a boil and simmer for 45 minutes
Finish on grill with BBQ sauce of your choice
WHAT I’M WATCHING
Qauntico! I’ve been totally binging on this for the last couple weeks. There are only 3 seasons, and I’m on the last one. It’s intense. If you like crime type shows, you’ll probably like it.
WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO
Next month I’m headed to…you guessed it. Nashville. Of course I can’t wait to go back and see my kiddos and friends.
WHAT I’M DREADING
At the moment I can’t think of anything, so that’s a blessing.
And that’s a wrap for this edition of Style Six with a side of What’s Up Wednesday. I’m linking up with Shay and Sheaffer, and of course our Style Six link up is below.

Such a fun post, Lisa! You have such a beautiful family and your sweater game is totally on point! Happy happy birthday to Erin!
That recipe looks yummy. Hubby made ribs last week and while everyone really liked them, I thought they were just ok. I am on a little healthy kick so that salmon dinner is calling my name!

Happy birthday sweet Erin! You look so good in polkadots my friend! So excited for your Nashville trip next Month. Can you believe I did not even know that Chicos was a till a thing and I’ve never even tried on any of their clothes. I hear they’re the bomb! I’ll bet we would like Quantico! We are currently watching FBI Most Wanted. Will have to give that a try! So hard to find quality shows these days.! Love ya friend!
Kathrine Eldridge says
Love all your looks and those ribs look delicious! Thanks for the link up!
That salmon looks so tasty! My go-to is a lemon caper sauce we get, but I’m trying to branch out! Love your polka dot sweater!
Lisa Richardson says
I do love salmon. I think I’m the only person I know who doesn’t like capers…which is crazy because I love salty things.
Heather Bramlett says
I love that sweater from Target! My store has it in stock and I am going to get it tomorrow!
Wonderful finds! The pink sweater is cute! You made me hungry with your food pictures. So yum!
Jodie's Touch of Style says
Polka dots!!! How perfect are those. And the Chico’s sizing may be good for the self esteem but it’s also no different…numbers, those crazy numbers, LOL
