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

Red, Navy, & Sequins?!

Sometimes I just have to make the title funny, why not? It amuses me, so I assume someone else out there gets a laugh at how utterly ridiculous I am!

What I wore today:

Cardigan: Kate Spade (forgot I had this!)
Blouse: Banana Republic
Skirt: Anthropologie (secondhand)
Belt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

I did not wear a smashing necklace today because my neck has been bothering me. I am going to blame watching the Olympics on my iPad and all the French Macarons I’ve been making. Speaking of those, I was at it again tonight!

That’s a vanilla macaron with a salted caramel cream inside. I also made chocolate, chocolate mint and coffee. This weekend I will whip up more almond, before shipping a huge order back east. I have been super good and have only snuck in 2-3 since last week. I consider THAT an act of God!!

I also got two boxes of lovelies from the Kate Spade outlet this afternoon. This purse:

And the matching dress:

It’s the exact same style/cut as the black one my husband bought me Saturday in Palm Springs. When they had this one come in to the outlet on Sunday, well, he jumped on the bandwagon and bought it! Now I just need an occasion to wear it. It’s quite blinding in the sun!!!! I know this dress really made the rounds before the holiday season last year, and I loved it then, but not at the $799 price tag!! It was discounted enough that I couldn’t say no.

Where would you wear it? I mean I would wear it to take the kids to school and maybe throw on my fur coat, but that might be pushing it a little. I would totally wear ballgowns every day if I could get away with it and it wasn’t such a pain to drive my car in a big dress. But that’s me. I love to channel my inner princess as much as possible.

Don’t forget to check out my blog sale. So far u have dresses listed, will be adding other items soon. I am open to negotiation as well.

Until next time,

Jules

    Wear it anywhere!! If you did flats, it would be more casual or throw a cardigan over it to dress it down too. Or throw a tee shirt over it too. That’s kind of edgy and something I would do.

    do you sell those macaroons to just anyone? ha I am thinking I might need to order some.
