Dress A Day In May

Ooooo, I had forgotten about this fun little thing for May, where you wear “a dress a day”!! A bunch of gals on Instagram did it last year, and I joined in (but I mean…that’s normal for me anyway, right?!), and so yesterday kicked off 2015’s #DADIM on Instagram! Today I went for it with GUSTO, wearing TWO dresses! 

Started the day in this…leaving at 5:30am to go pick up my husband’s car (it had a recall), and then popping up to the outlets with my teenager who needs just a few more hours of driving time before he takes his test at the end of the month!


  1. Dress: Kate Spade (picked up during Saks’ Friends & Family sale….its a 0, which I’m actually glad about because of getting it on/off. A 00 would fit properly, but I could see struggles to get it off!!)
  2. Belt: came with the dress (but ohhhh the possibilities of belts with this dress! All those fun colours!!)
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin

I then changed after we got home, as the temperature had gotten out of control, and the balloon dress is a VERY heavy fabric. I pulled out an oldie but one of my favorites…the fabric is so light and airy, yet does NOT fly up in the wind!




  1.  Dress: Lela Rose for Target/Neiman Marcus (which you can find this on eBay for less than $15 WITH SHIPPING!!!)
  2. Necklace: Kate Spade (on sale here )
  3. Belt: Kate Spade, Navy Glitter (pops up on Nordstrom in the sale section from time to time…)
  4. Shoes: Manolo Blahnik, Strassed by me, but I ended up wearing the Nina Jellies (also strassed by me) in the last photo above.

I made some tiered cake/dessert plates: 

Also working on ice cream cakes for the May birthday boys!! (Two on Monday, and the youngest later in the month)




 My homemade mint chocolate (made with Godiva truffles)  ice cream wih mint chocolate marbled cake, and chocolate buttercream. Hopefully they won’t be too disappointed it’s not from Baskin-Robbins!

Until next time,

    I love the dress a day idea! I might join in, as I’m on a self imposed ‘Buy less, wear more’ thing at the minute…it’s not going well though as as soon as you mentioned that Lela Rose dress on Ebay I went over and added one to my basket!!!!! It’s soooo pretty….the shipping will be more than the actual dress too which is insane haha!! 🙂 x
