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

Shades of Blue

Let me start by saying, I never intended to buy this particular dress. Then a fellow blogger/Kate Spade addict/Instagram addict posted a photo wearing hers. (Go read her blog: Journey of Doing) And it was tres adorable. AND THEN it went on sale. PLUS I had a gift card. And voila! down the rabbit hole I went.







Dress: Kate Spade Mariella Dress
Belt: American Eagle (but purchased at It’s a Wrap
Shoes: Montana Strass Christian Louboutin
Handbag: Kate Spade Wise Owl Quinn

My husband was very “meh” about this dress, until I put it ON. He’s a convert now. In fact, he loved it enough I managed to convince him I needed just one more dress from the additional 25% off sale. I’m shameless, I know!

In my defense, I have seen nothing I want/desire with the recent new releases. So I don’t feel that guilty. All I have left on my wishlist is to hunt down one of those sparkly lemon wedge clutches. And then? I do believe I am going to embrace a shopping ban for the month of August. It’s about time. But I won’t commit just yet!

Hope your weekend was fab!

Until next time,
