With Dancing with the Stars wrapped, I move on to the end of my kids’ school year, and the beginning of wedding season. Eeks! I haven’t been doing much shopping lately, but I hear sale is on sale at Kate Spade stores, and there is a surprise sale going on through tonight! I have been good, but after some of my recent couture splurges, I kind of have to be!

Until next time,

Jules


Eeks!

I think this is the busiest May EVER. It’s been a constant juggle of schedules, cakes, and Macarons. I am thankful I have a kid who drives, otherwise I might have had a total breakdown at this point!

First, can we discuss my daughter? (Who will probably KILL me for this!!) When did she grow up?! And wearing MY SHOES! Ack!! She had a talent show tonight, and we picked up this dress for .99 at Neiman Marcus Last Call a week ago. Yup, .99!!! I actually bought her two, this one (I think it’s David Meister) and a DVF, both were .99, and hey, it helps to have options right?! Shoes and necklace are Kate Spade, belt is Anthro, and she did her own makeup:

I know. I am so screwed y’all. The teen years are looming!!!
