A BIG Recap

The last few weeks have been utter chaos in my household! Some big changes for our family, and as such I just have put blogging on the back burner (but sadly for my bank account, not shopping. Lol!)

Some recent outfits (in no particular order):

  2. Belt: Oscar de la Renta
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin strassed by me

This one was ALL Kate Spade (I have a problem y’all!)

Went to downtown LA last week and finally visited “The Last Bookstore” (highly recommended, but park elsewhere and take an uber. Parker is a NIGHTMARE right there!) Coolest bookstore EVER. They had the most insane selection, I was in heaven! And I got an incredible recommendation for a new fantasy fiction series to start reading! (I am a total nerd)

So much else has gone on, but I can’t go into detail just yet, but I am super excited for all the changes coming. I just know it’s going to be a crazy time soon, as we start the process. Keep up with me on Instagram, as I tend to post there more! 

Until next time,


Holiday Weekend

Woot! Hello 3-day weekend! I’ve had kind of an interesting week, some major changes happening in my world and when I have things going on I tend to lose myself either in a pair of shoes or baking in the kitchen. This week it was baking! TONS of French Macarons! 

Just a few of the many MANY dozens I made. There is something fulfilling about seeing them all lined up! 

Yesterday I wore this:

  1. Blouse: Forever 21 (old)
  2. Skirt & Belt: Kate Spade
  3. Shoes: Kate Spade

And today:

  1. Dress: Kate Spade Wrap Dress (circa 2010-2011 I believe? It’s an older one!)
  2. Shoes: Kate Spade (also older, they are a kitten heel)

Did you see that sale is an additional 25% off this weekend online? I have some gift cards, so I may pick up one or two smaller items, but I am limiting myself for the month of September, as I went a LITTLE overboard for the month of August. I have one more big order coming from Kate Spade next week as well. OOPS. 

I really need to cull my closet a bit more. I started a “closet” on Instagram ( Right here ) to unload pieces that I no longer wear, use, or items I purchased for someone at the outlets, and then was never paid for them and often times forget to return them. I know holidays are coming and I do have a few NWT items. I still need to bite the bullet and get rid of dresses I know I will NEVER EVER wear, but keep for sentimental reasons. Sigh. I’m totally a fashion hoarder!

Until next time,



It’s still summer, and it still FEELS like summer, August is typically hot and humid and this year is no exception. On the bright side, it means I can wear linen and not worry about wrinkles!!!!

  1. Dress: Kate Spade (WAY old, from one of the first collections. I have this same dress with a different trim too)
  2. Belt: Oscar de la Renta
  3. Shoes: Kate Spade Eleni In Blush (new for fall!)
  4. Handbag: Kate Spade Small Rachelle (outlet style, they bring it out in the Ballet Slipper in late winter/early spring)

I’ve been spending most of my time this week in the kitchen:

Lots and lots of Macarons this week! Eeks. Also, a reminder that sale items at Kate Spade are an additional 25% off through next Tuesday! Outlets have a sale too, but I don’t know what exactly it is. I’m trying to be good, I might have over indulged during the splurge and save this month. OOPS! 

Until next time,
