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


Today was full of stripes!!! Seems to be a thing with me lately come to think of it.

My outfit today:






Cardigan: Ann Taylor
Dress: Kate Spade (outlet dress)
Belt: Kate Spade (eBay, was NWT)
Shoes: Kate Spade
Necklace: Burlington Coat Factory

This dress! I had been shown it a few months ago at my favorite outlet, but passed because it does not have pockets (the horror!). But my husband and I saw it this past Sunday, and I actually tried it on. Well, the rest is history. Probably helped that it was on uber-sale (right at $100), so it came home with us. And the belt was an awesome eBay find a while back (under $20).

And that folks is how I broke my most recent “I’m done buying dresses!!” “Ban”. Whoops! However, I see this dress being a workhorse in my wardrobe, it’s a nice light cotton, fits well, and can be worn so many ways. My only complaint is lack of pockets, but I have so many other dresses with them, I shall survive. I love the feel of it, AND it passed the “windy day” test, which is always important where I live!

Hope your Thursday was grand! I got to make a super fun cake tonight, but cannot reveal it until after it is delivered tomorrow morning. It’s very cute.

Until next time,

  1. I picked this one up at the outlet too!! It’s a great summer weight and so flattering! I’m hoping the navy one will show up soon!

    • Oh, that’s right, they had a navy version too!! This one is the outlet version, the fabric isn’t as heavy as the regular store’s version, if that makes sense?

      I’m desperately on the hunt for the red & hot pink striped dress that was out a couple years ago. I’m loving stripes right now!!!

      Enjoy your pink dress!!! I want to wear it tomorrow again, hahahaha.

  2. This is stunning, I love it! The shoes are perfect with it, and that is the most fabulous shade of pink 🙂 I bet it’s really confidence-boosting 🙂

    • Thank you!!!! Not sure if it is the dress that is confidence boosting, or the compliments! Kind of a toss up really. Thanks for stopping by!
