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


Whew, today has been long!! Lots of baking, tomorrow is my stepsons’ birthday (yes, they share a birthday! Among other things), and another cake that was ordered. It’s all done, and the ice cream cakes are in the freezer! 


My piping skills aren’t the greatest….but it will do!

I wore my Madison Avenue dress to church this morning…. 


  1. Dress: Kate Spade Madison Avenue Ines Dress
  2. Necklace: Kate Spade (I could wear this one every day!!)
  3. Earrings: Nadri, picked up for under $10 at Nordstrom Rack last week.
  4. Shoes: Kate Spade (I bought these when my husband bought me this dress. They MAKE the dress!!)

I ended up changing when we got home….I was hot, and I’ll be honest, my feet weren’t terribly happy!! The shoes above aren’t all-day heels. So I put this on:



  1.  Dress: David’s Bridal, picked up at goodwill.
  2. Brooch: vintage, off eBay
  3. Shoes: Manolo Blahnik, strassed in Crystal AB. 

Perhaps I’ll take the “dress a day in May” to the extreme and shoot for two dresses a day! (Kidding…although should I be ashamed to admit I could do that AND be able to not repeat a single dress? Eeks!!!) I am hoping our beautiful weather holds, although it could be a little cooler…93 degrees in early May is a little too hot. 

Until next time,

  1. I doubt the boys notice your piping skills…. particularly with a cake that looks and sounds so yummy!!! You are so right – the shoes so make that dress pop!!
