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

Fall Break

Yes, you read that right, fall break! Yesterday my kids started their two-week fall break. From what I understand there was quite the cheering going on at their school when that bell rang! Sadly (or perhaps not, as my ears aren’t ringing!!) I was not there to witness that event! I’ve been in Orange County since late Wednesday evening (as in, 11pm!) for a work thing.

But there are perks to my job, running errands in Orange County is way more fun than where we live! We don’t have a whole foods, and that means we don’t see these types of things:


Bacon caramels?! Really?! I bought my husband some.

Finding a new Kate Spade dress I am IN LOVE with, only to find out the smallest size is too big (this was pinned, I am SO sad!!! Hello eBay hunting!!)


Bon-Epi French Macarons:


A new (BRAND NEW! My first ever new pair) pair of Christian Louboutins found at Nordstrom Rack for under $100 (I’m still in shock!!):



And clothing recaps. I’ve been back on a dress kick, probably because it’s super easy and kind of mindless!





Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Jimmy Choo






Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: Thrift
Shoes: Strassed Christian Louboutin flats, made by Redo My Shoe

Yesterday I started in this:




Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

And threw this on to go out to dinner last night with my husband (who came down for the weekend. Since I am not going home until middle of next week):




Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Kate Spade Emma
Belt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin (oh why is it so hard to wear a brand new pair out?! I felt guilty!!!!)
Necklace & Bracelet: Ben Amun

Not sure how today is going to go, we seem to be moving slow! No solid plans, just waiting to see if I’m needed (hopefully not!) and working our way towards breakfast. Our hotel has amazing breakfast, mmmmm!

Until next time,

    Hi Jules, that lace dress is so nice on you. What size did you try on? I remembered trying that dress on awhile back but ended up not getting it. I did regret not getting it. Ive been trying to find a size 0 but no luck.

    • It’s a 4. I need a 0 or 00 in any KS dress. The zipper is on the side, which makes alterations difficult. At $458, it was a definite pass! (But oh so sad!!)

      The smallest the sales girl could find in her system was a 2. Hope that helps!

  2. TWO WEEK FALL BREAK?! That is insane! Are you all on a year-round schedule?? So jealous of your shoe find!! Those are the best!!

    • No, it’s more of a modified schedule. We only have a 7-week summer break. They start school the first Monday in August. We also have 3 weeks at Christmas and a two week spring break.

      Eeks! I’m still giddy about the shoe find!!!

  3. I am so envious of your find … I think they are gorgeous (the shoes) and I would really like a macaroon too …

    • Hahahaha! Your so cute!!! I probably won’t wear them a ton, they are a five-inch heel, no platform. Eeks! But I managed them okay. They are soooo pretty!!
