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

Weekend Recap

Where to begin?! Let us start with Friday, where I started the day in this:




Blouse & Necklace: Target
Skirt: Thrifted
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Handbag: Kate Spade

But hated it. I was in a “mood” I suppose. So after taking the kids to school and putting the finishing touches on this special cake:



I decided to commit the ultimate fashion faux pas and throw on the same dress I wore the day before! (The horror!!) I styled it a touch differently though:





Cardigan: Target (girls’ section)
Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: It’s a Wrap (movie clothing store in Hollywood. It’s a MUST see!)
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Necklace: Kate Spade
Bracelet: vintage, garage sale find

To make a long weekend short, we spent a TON of time driving cars around this weekend. We have loaner cars until the repairs on my SUV and my husbands commuter car are done. Can I just say, I’m in love? I want to keep this: (it’s a 2013 Lexus GS350. I must say the controls are wicked awesome!!)


But alas, she must go back. I’ll have to snap more photos of it before I return the car. It sure is fun to drive! Soooo quiet.

Oh, clothing, right. What I wore to take cars in + tackle downtown Los Angeles with all 4 kids (specifically Santee Alley):




Cardigan: Ross
Blouse: Banana Republic Outlet
Skirt: Vintage
Belt: thrift
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Simple
Necklace: Kate Spade

And today I was back down in LA, to drive high school kids to an event (which I dropped them off at), and heading into downtown for brunch with some girlfriends (yay!) at Bottega Louie (yum!). I dressed for the occasion of course:




Cardigan/Jacket: Target
Dress: Kate Spade Emma
Belt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin, Strassed by me
Necklace: Burlington

And of course a photo of the box of macarons I bought (because I buy them for the box)!


A fun, crazy weekend. I also made a stop in at the Citadel Kate Spade outlet. Nothing terribly exciting.

Hope you had a great weekend!

Until next time,

    • Thanks!!

      Yes, that cardigan/jacket is sooo Chanel-ish! One day I aspire to own a few Chanel pieces, just can’t convince myself they are worth the investment.
