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

Saturday Musings

What a gorgeous Saturday across Southern California! My husband and I rounded up the kids and headed down to Orange County to car shop. Currently am sitting in the dealership awaiting on MY car, as we are having the navigation system updated. I have to say, Newport Lexus does know how to make the waiting game a comfortable experience!


Sadly no new car, as we both feel the one my husband loved is priced a little high, and we are walking. It feels odd being a grown up and resisting the “sense of urgency” the car salesman tried to instill in us!!

My outfit today:


Cardigan: Kate Spade (off eBay)
Blouse: thrifted
Skirt: Hartley skirt from Sandee Royalty
Shoes: Christian Louboutin (off eBay)
Handbag: Kate Spade

I did have a necklace on, but with all my recent neck issues, it was driving me nuts after 5 minutes so I left it off and at home.

Yesterday I wore this:


Cardigan: Grace Elements (Ross)
Blouse: Donna Karan (thrifted, summer 2010)
Skirt: INC, thrifted
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Handbag: Kate Spade

I stayed up until 1am this morning finishing up my crystal AB Strassed Simple pumps. I am SO EXCITED about these! I wanted to wear them today, but I’m waiting until the event I finished them for this coming week.





Hard to believe these were black leather just over a week ago!

And finally, some photos from our drive to Orange County:



I suppose I shall sit back and wait for the next hour for my car, and attempt to convince my husband that we must go to South Coast Plaza AND Fashion Island before heading home. Perfectly reasonable, eh? Okay, perhaps not. I imagine we will end up at Fashion Island, as there is a Kate Spade store there, and the kids really enjoy going there. They are sadly too old to be bribed by the prospect of a merry-go-round! Oh well, one day I will have grand kids that will fall for that “trick”.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Until next time,
