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

Pink & Navy

It’s June, school is nearly out, and the weather has turned not only warm, but slightly humid. All the more reason to pull out a light cotton shift dress and add some accessories. Voila! Everyone wanted to know where I was going today. Errands? Nothing thrilling I assure you. I just re-arranged my closet and realize I should wear more of my clothing, especially considering I own more than 60 dresses. Yes, that many.

I need clothing rehab!




Dress: Calvin Klein, ages old
Belt: Anne Klein, thrifted
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Handbag: (not pictured) Grey Patent Kate Spade Maryann bag

In other news, I have still not located my glasses. I went around in sheer agony all day with my contact lenses in (why are they so tortuous now?!), before breaking down and tearing apart my bathroom to find my old glasses. Which I did (yay!), and then wondered what on earth was I thinking when I picked them out?? Oh how my tastes have changed in the past 3 years!! At least my new pair will be here Friday, so I don’t have to feel utterly freakish for too long.

I’ve also been working on bits for The Cute and Sparkly Wife lately. Some new hair clips:


And a pair of shoes I threw together for my daughters teacher gift:


I know she will be excited, they really are lovely. I used jet AB crystals on a plain black base. Simple, yet a little something “extra”. Her and her husband (my youngest has her husband as his teacher) are headed to the mission field this summer before starting a new grand adventure in their lives & careers, so I’m glad I can do something special for her, so she knows just how much she was appreciated this past year.

Okay, so secretly I’m a little glad she is leaving the school, so I won’t have to cough up such a fabulous end of year gift. Unless I feel it’s warranted. You know. Typically it’s Starbucks gift cards!

Anyway, two more days of school an then our summer adventures begin!! I’m super excited for next week, I’m going to be in LA all week for various reason, but the exciting thing? I have an appointment at the 55 Thousand Dresses showroom next Tuesday! I can’t wait to share my experience. I’m super super excited. Ending with some shopping in Palm Springs by the end of the week, and hopefully I’ll put myself on a ban for a while. Reorganizing my closet made me realize it’s time for a major clean-out. Soon!!

Until next time,
