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

Happy Friday!!

Well, a recap of the past few days…..we’ve been prepping for a trip up to San Francisco all week, along with a memorial party for my grandfather, and here it is Friday, and I haven’t blogged all week!! Whoops!

Tuesday…..I went to work:




Blouse: Nanette Lepore
Skirt: Ralph Lauren
Shoes: Jonquil strass Jimmy Choo
Brooch: Vintage

Then when I got home I took the kids I the library:


Then came home and whipped up some French Macarons:


Wednesday we went up to Lake Arrowhead for my grandfathers memorial party. I wore a dress (oooo, cheating!!!):





Cardigan: Kohls
Dress: Hobbs
Belt: Vintage
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Some photos from the party:





Of course I made a cake and the Macarons and failed to take a picture!!!! Whoopsie. It was a beautiful day up there.

My sister, daughter and a friend all took the trek up to the Ice Castle International Training Center in Lake Arrowhead for a skating session. I didn’t snap many photos this time, my sister was actually filming my feet, which was kind of cool. Makes me want to practice more to regain some of my “tricks”!


Photos from my drive home, it was lovely. My kids stayed to camp, so I was truly alone, and was able to really enjoy myself!




Yesterday I stayed home to clean, do laundry and work on packing. Yes, this is how I clean house:


Top: Kohls
Skirt: Bob Mackie

I then wrapped presents:


And changed my skirt because it was super windy and I had to run out and pick up my dry cleaning. The Engineer needed his suit, as our trip next week is for another funeral, this one a proper military one.

So, my skirt last night:

And finally today. I have a million errands, it’s already blazing hot, and so I’m cheating with a simple dress. It was easy and I’m not taking it with me, so it’s fine to stay behind in the dirty pile!





Dress: Target
Belt: no idea
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Handbag: Kate Spade

So, off and running I go! Hope you have a fabulous Friday!!

Until next time,
