Weekend Recap

Another crazy May weekend is coming to a close (thankfully!!), and I’ve sat down for a few moments to recap the past few days of outfits! I have kept to my “dress a day in may” resolution, and while I have repeated dresses, I think due to many outfit changes on some days, I should exceed 31 different dresses.

That said, Friday I wore this, a new (old) dress I picked up on eBay (I’ve managed some great scores lately on some older pieces!):






Cardigan: Target
Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: eBay
Shoes: Jimmy Choo strass
Bracelets: Kate Spade

Yesterday I put this on to finish some things around the house before heading to a party last night:




Dress: Alannah Hill
Shoes: Nina (but Strassed by me)

What I wore to the party last night:





Dress: Abaete (goodwill)
Belt: It’s a Wrap
Shoes: Montana Strass Christian Louboutin heels

And today I wore a new dress to church, I popped out to the Kate Spade outlet in Desert Hills (love y’all so much!!!), and my amazing sales associate out there had not only one, but two dresses I had on my “wish list”. Both were black & white, but as I’m a sucker for a good dress with pockets that fits beautifully, I am not ashamed to admit I purchased both!! It probably helped my decision that they are dresses from the retail store, not an outlet version. Soo, without further ado, my Adette dress:







Dress: Kate Spade Adette
Shoes: Kate Spade
Bracelets: Kate Spade

I just have to say, the Adette is right up there with the Emma style dress for me now! I adore the fit, the length is perfect, and of course it has pockets! Now I’m going to be looking for the grey & white version that was released earlier this year. Sigh. While I realize it’s similar to the Gayle dress (outlet only style) I purchased last month, the fabric is different and it has a small “sleeve”. The other dress I picked up Friday was the Hope dress, on sale online. Or call the outlet, they are happy to ship for a small fee.

A couple of snaps from a dear friends 30th birthday last night. I wore the white dress above at her request. And made French macarons & individual raspberry pies. The theme was “white & cobalt blue”:




So pretty! Happy Birthday C!!!

Until next time,

    • Isn’t it amazing?! Even better it was $4 at Goodwill + the $3 at the dry cleaners! Abaete was a line that went out of business a few years ago. I found the look book online and died! So many soft flowy dresses!

    • Oooo, pull the trigger!!! It’s fabulous. My husband liked it back in February when he bought me the black Emma dress. But it wasn’t on sale yet, and we have a pact to only buy KS on sale (or with a % off!!). I try to hold out for the 75% off, but sometimes I can’t! This time I did, and I’m soooo happy I did!!

      Call the Desert Hills outlet here in California, they have the Hope in so many sizes, and cheaper than online! Shoot me an email if you need their number & my SA’s name. She is AMAZING.

    • Soooo glad I’m not the only person who bought BOTH the Adette & the Hope dresses!! I love them both, and them having pockets is a major bonus.

      Thanks for stopping by!!

      ❤ Jules
