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

A Mid-Week Update

I just realized I haven’t blogged in over a week! It’s been crazy, with being gone all last week and over the weekend I had a serious “hangover”. Not the alcoholic kind, but the “staying up late, sleeping in random places, an too much shopping” type!! Last week was quite the excess of consumerism, not perhaps in the amount of money I spent, but just all the different places I went.

That said, a few fun snaps of items I picked up last week:

Kate Spade Claire bag (thrift find, $2.99!)


All the sparkly pieces I bought and have since been turning into wearable art:






The above pieces are for the line I’m working on for The Cute and Sparkly Wife. I’m super excited about them, especially as most can do double duty, either a headpiece or a belt.

Some outfits from the past week:


Blouse: Thrifted, $1
Skirt: JCrew, thrifted, $2.49
Shoes: Strassed Christian Louboutin
Handbag: Kate Spade (this is new, well, new to me! It’s quite a long story)


Blouse: Target, under $15
Belt: no idea!
Skirt: INC, thrifted
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Handbag: Kate Spade


Blouse: Thrifted, $1 (worn above as well)
Skirt: Vintage, from It’s a Wrap (it’s tagged with a characters name from a TV show even!)
Belt: thrifted
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

This is a necklace I bought at Target last week, along with my vintage watch and the tiny Kate Spade bag I pretty much carried everywhere last week:


Yes, I realize I have a bit of a Navy + White problem right now! I am just loving the combination for whatever reason. I added about 15 skirts last week, and probably half of them are navy or have navy IN them. Or white. It’s just seems like a crisp combination for summer. As I’m sure anyone who reads my blog on a regular basis has realized, I don’t really follow trends or what’s “hot” right now. I kind of follow my own “hey, I love this, let me go totally OCD and wear different variations of pretty much the same thing”. I have 6 navy pencil skirts. Oops!

I suppose I should quit reading the shopaholic books! I just feel quite a connection with Becky and her crazy thought process, without the overdraft and credit card debt that is.

Anyway, it’s officially summer and it’s hot as blazes here! My kids are enjoying their vacation and tomorrow will be our last Disneyland trip until August. I’m excited and dreading tomorrow all at the same time! I know it will be busy. But since I intend to just be a stuff holder, it should be fun. If only they had shoe shops IN the park!

Until next time,
