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

End of June

Wow, it’s hard to believe the year is officially HALF over today! Where has the time gone?!

Anyway, I’ve spent the last few days with friends I only see once a year, and well, let’s just say it’s probably a good thing there is NO photographic evidence of our adventures!! That said, it’s Monday, and I’m back to work & back to “life as normal” (although, what IS normal anyway?!)

My outfit today (which I may or may not have also worn yesterday to church, before coming back home for a five hour nap!)






Dress: Kate Spade Lyric Dress (which I picked up on major sale about a week ago)
Shoes: Coach (old, off eBay 4+ years ago)
Handbag: Kate Spade (also off eBay)

I managed to get a light sunburn this weekend, so keeping accessories very light today. My skin just aches! I am never going to be a beach bunny!

Today is the last day to enter my summer giveaway. Enter here

Also repost this on Instagram & tag me:


Giveaway ends tonight at midnight PST. Open to readers worldwide! I will announce the winners by Friday.

Have a wonderful Monday!

Until next time,

    • Lol!!! I like it too!! I actually bought a size up, for once the 00 and the 0 fit the SAME, but the 0 was almost an inch longer in length!!!! Crazy, huh?! Sizing has been insane lately. Did you get this one in the current sale? I also picked up the Mariella, just haven’t worn it yet.

      Btw, I hunted down a Rose print Jillian dress!!!!! Squee!!! 🙂

      • OOOH!! Well done!! I did get a couple things from the sale but I missed the Hope dress!! I tried the grey Mariella dress at the store but the hubs didn’t like grey on me as much as the blues.

        Our outlet has been really low on merchandise lately so I’m jealous of all your finds!!

    Hi Jules, may i ask what size did you go with for lyric lemon dress? Im guessing you are an xs? Do you recommend sizing down for this dress? Im normally size 0 in kate spade dresses but i find some room in size 0 for this dress.

    • Hi! I actually purchased a 0 in the Lyric dress. BUT, I tried on a 00 and a 0, and in this dress they were the same (or it seemed like it!) fit, the 0 was just about an inch longer in length for the skirt.

      I typically purchase a 00/XS in most Kate Spade dresses. Sometimes a 0, either due to the length, or availability. It also depends on the cut of the dress & fabric type. (Can be frustrating at times, as I mainly order online) I’m 5’5, for height reference. (But I wear a 32″ inseam, which is one of the reasons I don’t wear pants, it’s tricky to find the right length!)

      Hope that helps! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

      ❤ Jules
