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

Mid-Week Slump

Oh my, it’s been hot & humid lately! Yesterday I spent the day in the kitchen (oh yay!) prepping & baking for a couple of big cakes this week. Had to start early due to the weather. Needless to say, my attire left MUCH to be desired, as by the end of the day I had chocolate all over my top & skirt (I kind of skipped the “hey wear an apron” step. Oops!) so, yeah. Let’s just forget yesterday ever happened!

Today though, I threw this one to run around with my mini-me this morning. I’m starting her out early on the beauty of thrifting!




Dress: Banana Republic
Shoes: Coach
Handbag: Kate Spade

The shoes have a funny story. I recently found a lot of shoes on eBay, and snagged four pair for $35 (incl shipping) The seller was awesome, as she actually sent me five pairs! So that ended up being $7 a pair! I’ll probably only keep 3 of the pairs (sandals, which is what I was looking for), and pass the heels on to a friend. Even still, fantastic deal!

Goodwill has great deals all summer too. Kids clothing this week was $1.98, and I found some Ralph Lauren dresses for my daughter that were also half off. One had the tags still! Can’t beat that.

Hope you are beating the heat. I’m hanging out waiting on UPS. I have some exciting things coming from Nordstrom!

Until next time,

  2. I am loving the colour of that dress, such a perfect berry tone!
    Good luck beating the heat- it has been warmer than normal up here but dare not complain, the snow will be here soon enough…!
