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

Wednesday Slump

Oh boy, I’m not sure what’s happened today, but I am BOMBED! Just exhausted! I think it’s because my health (arthritis flare, yuck!!) is giving me some fits with our up & down weather patterns, but either way, it can stop now please!!!!

It also makes for the inability to wear fun jewelery! My wrists & neck are bugging me, and the weight of jewels, well, yeah. BUMMER!!! I have decided against putting jewels on for photos, as I want y’all to see what I wear in real life, not something I photographed for my blog. Because, really, that is why I started blogging, to force myself to wear more of my clothes AND to share “hey I’m a mom over 30 with 4 kids, and I try to dress ‘up’ per today’s standards because I can. And when I look good, I feel better”. So, I hope I inspire someone out there! Side note, please feel free to email me anytime if you need style advice or are looking for something I’ve worn/bought/photographed. I’m always happy to help, and unless your email gets stuck in the spam folder, I respond fairly quickly! I try to check spam every few days too.

Anyway, what I wore yesterday:




Sweater: Kate Spade (eBay)
Skirt: Vintage (It’s a Wrap in LA, which I get to go there on Sunday!! Exciting!!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

And today, I was “Hawaiian Barbie” (a dear friend of mine always nicknames my outfits and adds “Barbie” to it, as she calls me her “little barbie doll”. LOL. It’s cute. I get the honor of putting her wedding together next year, so she’s going to be MY “Wedding Barbie”!)




Cardigan: Kate Spade (eBay)
Skirt: no-name (Thrifted)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

As I’m sure anyone who reads me regularly has noticed, I’ve been wearing these flats A TON lately. Why you ask? My feet have been bugging me something fierce. I still wear heels, but my feet have been swollen from an arthritis flare, and I try to keep it in check during these times. I also just haven’t felt terribly sparkly, so I’ve kept it simple. Hoping it will pass soon, it tends to run in cycles. Living with chronic illness can be super wretched at times!!

I’ve also been prepping for next week:


And I made my daughter some necklaces:


I’m sure she will be ecstatic!!

Have a lovely afternoon!

Until next time,

    Hey we match today-both wearing gold flats! I love gold anything lately.

    Love the outfit. You’re very nautical inspired. That sweater is so fun. I like how the gold buttons pick up in the gold shoes.
