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

Monday Blues

Oh goodness, it’s overcast, a light drizzle, and I have my balcony window open! Nothing like the desert rain. Smells so amazing! I am supposed to be taking a nap, but alas, I seem to have an electronic device addiction. Shhhhh!

My outfit today:





Dress: Kate Spade (outlet dress)
Belt: no-name, picked up @ It’s a Wrap yesterday
Shoes: Jimmy Choo

I didn’t take a lot of photos this weekend. I was at Disneyland on Saturday (and forgot to snap outfit shots before I left!), then ran around LA yesterday before ending up in Laguna Niguel last night to see a venue for a bride. But I do have these from Saturday, to sort of piece together my ensemble:

(Yes, that’s Thor. I’m slightly, okay, HUGELY embarrassed. I wanted to see Thor, not actually meet & take photos! Lol)




Dress: Kate Spade Mariella
Belt: Green satin tied with a vintage brooch (done to tie in my shoes)
Shoes: Green Tourmaline Strassed Christian Louboutin flats

And yes, I broke down and finally purchased a set of headband sparkly ears. They hurt my head though. Boo!! I love the colours.

Thor in his throne room (talk about a magical Disney experience. They did this SO well):


My favorite stop yesterday in LA, at Sugarfina, a luxury candy shop:




I did stop in at the Century City Kate Spade store, but I was very underwhelmed. That store just has a different vibe to it, I don’t know, it’s just not my favorite location to visit. I’m not terribly excited about the fall/winter collections this year, and I made the mistake of saying it! I’m sorry, but I am just not going to run around in short short skirts. Nope. It’s not ME. Oh well. Perhaps that’s why I rarely stop there. I am excited for the take-out box handbag though! It’s next on my list!

We saw the Goodyear blimp preparing to fly:


And the view from where my bride is getting married. Isn’t is stunning?! I’m uber excited for her wedding next summer!!



Now to stay home (or close to home) all week before next weekends adventure! I’m chaperoning an overnight trip to the Midway down in San Diego. I must be mad! 65 teenagers?! Eeks!

Have a great week!

Until next time,

    • Lol! He was so funny. His accent was awful!!! Love how Disney does that stuff though. There’s also a Captain America meet & greet, but he wasn’t there. Only at Disneyland!

  2. WE WERE TWINS ALL WEEKEND. I was disappointed with KS Century City, too… but the Bloomingdales had a LOT of fun home stuff when we were there in July!! I am underwhelmed by the new collection. I did try on the polka dot dress, but the Hubs felt like it was too low… and the salesgirl warned me about that, too!!

    • Lol! How funny!!!

      Yeah, I didn’t even try the polka dot dress on (they didn’t have anything close to my size anyway. It woulda been like trying on a potato sack. That store sells out of their smaller sizes FAST). I was just bummed about the poor CS. Worst I’ve ever experienced.

      We didn’t go to the home department of Bloomies, we had so many places to go in such a short time, I kept to a pretty right schedule. It was fun though!!
