Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!

Miss America Preliminary

Whew, it has been a long day! All those desserts I’ve been Instagram-ing this week were for the judges hospitality table at our local Miss America preliminary pageant.

Dessert table: (and it was yummy!!)


I spent the afternoon with the contestants, helping prep them for their interviews. Being my first time ever involvement with a pageant, I am impressed. Several of these young ladies were extremely poised, for being so young. It was also fun to see them outside of the formal event. Same with the judges, what a great group. People always gush about the Miss America Organization, and I get it. I totally get it.

My outfit for this morning/afternoon:


Cardigan: Ann Taylor
Dress: Calvin Klein (found this is a box last week, woo-hoo!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Decolette
Handbag: Kate Spade
Necklace: Banana Republic

Shoes & Bag:


More French Macarons:



And what I wore to the pageant this evening. The photo isn’t that great, it was as we were leaving. So I’m tired and cranky at this point, and my feet were dying from being in heels for 10 hours running around. I love my decolettes, but they hurt my toes after a few hours!



Coat: Vintage, label says Robinsons
Dress: Vintage
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Simple 100’s in patent red.

The shoe choice was not my first choice tonight. I had the most perfect peep-toe slingbacks ready to go. But they rubbed the ball of my foot wrong and I knew I was going to be running around at the pageant. So I went with safe & comfort.

The slingbacks I had intended to slip on tonight:


Oh well, c’est la vie. And now I wish you a very good night.

Until next time,
