Thankful

What a week! We had quite a fun Thanksgiving, popping up to Lake Arrowhead, where it was still a whopping 70-something degrees! (FYI, it was 80-something at my house this afternoon!!) I am having a difficult time getting into the Christmas mode with late spring temperatures!!

What I wore Wednesday:

And to celebrate “Black Friday”, I wore this today to pop out to Target with my husband:

Cardigan: JCrew Kids (same I wore yesterday. It didn’t last long either day! Too hot!)
Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Jimmy Choo

Did you hit the sales today? We felt the sales weren’t what they were last year. I bought a few odds and ends (mainly some movies), but overall I was very underwhelmed! Even the ongoing Kate Spade Surprise Sale hasn’t tempted me! Perhaps I am simply “shopped out”! (Yeah right) We honestly don’t do “big” Christmas though, but there’s still 20-something days left, so who knows!

Have a wonderful weekend! I’ll be back to decorating the house tomorrow:

It’s always a 2-day job!

Until next time,

Tuesday, oh Tuesday

Oh my, is it the Tuesday before thanksgiving already?! YIKES!!! I’ve been running 17 different directions since last week, and am so far behind. Alas, I think I shall always be behind, perhaps it’s part of a full life?

Last Thursday I spent the day at Disneyland with some friends, but didn’t snap many photos.

I wore a Kate Spade dress, my multi-strass Manolo flats I wore the day prior, and carries a bright pink bag. It was a fabulous day.

Friday saw me back to the routine of daily life. I’m not sure if this outfit was “great”, I admit I was tired and it looked OK in my closet. I didn’t get any complaints!

A cake:

And have managed to avoid pulling the trigger on any surprise sale items! Yes, Kate Spade is having another surprise sale! I am tempted, but not sure if I’m tempted enough. There’s some big ticket items I really want this season, and so I am attempting to be strategic about it! Le sigh.

Hope your week is going wonderfully, mine is flying. I’m so thankful the kids have tomorrow off from school, this staying up late baking and being up at 5am is TOUGH!!

Until next time,

Jules


Mid-Week Already?!

Monday!

It’s Monday! Honestly I complain about Mondays, but I don’t mind them all that much! It was a coffee morning, but that’s because I’m still recovering from dental work, and mouth pain is THE WORST!!! I’m used to my joint pain, just not my jaw!!

My outfit today:

Stockings: Calvin Klein (they are an exact match for my pasty self!)

Hope your Monday is as great as mike has been!

Until next time,

Sunday Evening Musings

Some wonderful thrift store finds on Friday:

The coin purse!!! It was only $3.99

My favorite photo of the entire week, my sons cross country team in prayer before their race started, a race where 5 of them posted their best times all season! (We didn’t make the finals, but such a great showing!!)

IMG_6767.JPG

I suppose the team captain has a sweet tooth, post race “snacks”:

IMG_6755.JPG

Such a great weekend. Our weather seems to have finally decided “oh hey, it’s fall!”, my trees are starting to turn, and the weather has cooled down quite a bit. Hard to grasp Thanksgiving being less than two weeks away!

Hope your weekend was grand!

Until next time,

Jules


Wednesday

Whoops, I had very good intentions of posting yesterday, thanking those who have served our country, but it never quite happened. I suppose I was too busy serving MY veteran and my kiddos! It happens. We stayed home and so I never really got dressed anyway.

Today it’s back to the dentist for a follow up, I must admit I am SO OVER this dental work nonsense!!

IMG_6694.JPG

IMG_6695.JPG

Sweater: Banana Republic (picked up secondhand at Its a Wrap)
Skirt: Thrifted (just a basic black pencil skirt)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Necklace: Banana Republic
Handbag: Kate Spade

My shoes I can only wear in cooler weather, do you have shoes like that? I have summer shoes for swollen feet and winter shoes for cold icy feet! Bizarre, I know.

Until next time,

Jules
