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

Saturday Shenanigans

I had not intended to blog tonight, but alas, here it is, a little before midnight and while I am tired, it’s not quite time to sleep yet. This 3 and 4 hour nap thing in the afternoon is throwing my sleep schedule off! Luckily only 4 more days of the school year, and my 5:30am wake up call goes away for 7 weeks!!

This morning we did an outlet run…I wore this: 


  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade (currently on sale at the outlets….more on that below)
  2. Dress: Kate Spade (old…2010/2011-ish!)
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin Love flats, strassed in Montana and clear crystal by me.

And I went BACK out this evening to return some movies and ended up wearing something different: 


  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade Tula (2014 outlet style)
  2. Dress: Kate Spade Olivia (late 2013)
  3. Belt: Kate Spade
  4. Shoes: Christian Louboutin

So, some outlets are running 40/20 on their stock. But SOME are running 50% off and then “buy more, save more”! (I don’t remember all the levels…just that is you spent $350 or more it was an additional 25% off!!) Which is kind of an amazing promotion!! I didn’t buy anything today, but I did try these on:


I LOVE the blue one. It’s such a gorgeous color and it’s a fun little dress with a very low back. However it runs HUGE!!!! This one slipped right down without me even unzipping it. So, it stayed there. I love the shape and the color. The second one is a remake of last year, from the Havana collection. I’m on the fence about it….perhaps if it hits major sale and it’s in my size somewhere, I’ll pick it up because my husband liked it. We shall see.

I did find something else, however there is no reveal yet. Still working out the details, but I am SO EXCITED about it. 

And lastly scored a second large mixer…my costco marked them down to $220. (Red only): 


I had wanted a second silver one…but for that price? Red will do just dandy!!! It’s a nice upgrade from my old ones I bought 5 years ago. More power, bigger bowl, and it’s so much quieter!!! Already gave it a first whirl, starting on cake pops for a wedding next weekend. It’s going to be an insane week! 

Excited for tomorrow, we told the kids and they had so much fun picking out dress clothes. I don’t know why we never considered celebrating with all 6 of us before! I feel a little mommy guilt on THAT one. Now to figure out what I’m going to wear. This whole flats-only things is really cramping my church and fancy meal style! But I have to stick to it, I slipped on heels the other night and walked maybe 100 feet total, and it was a BAD idea. Sigh. Talk about a first world problem!

Until next time,

    I agree with Sara, you have the best outlets! Where I live it’s all about the bag and wallet, some jewellery, and if you’re lucky maybe 3 dresses which are quickly sold down to tiny sizes (OK that’s not a problem for you obviously). Love your posts, keep them coming – at all hours of the day or night!
