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

Friday Recap

Just a quick recap of some outfits this past week. I shall start with today, as I pulled out what seems to have become my “go-to” ensemble for funerals. Happily today was a lovely occasion, celebrating the long full life of the most incredible woman. I was touched greatly by the stories shared and the memories that flew through my brain. My father gave the most lovely service!

Anyway, I wore this, and added the hat for the graveside. California provided perfect weather, 70-ish in January!






Hat: Vintage (garage sale!)
Jacket: Target
Brooch: vintage
Blouse: Kohls
Skirt: Saks Fifth Avenue (Vintage, Thrifted)
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Simple

In addition to the ceremony, my father also played his harp in the cemetery and my daughter sang the song my grandmother had requested. She (my grandmother) truly was the most inspiring woman ever.

All in all, a lovely week. Looking forward to the weekend, as next week the kids go back to school and well, it’s tax season, so it’s crazy! Ah, the perils of being a grown up!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Until next time,
