Red, White, & Blue

Oops, I realized I hadn’t posted my outfit today! In honor of Independence Day and our nations colors, I went red, white, & blue today!


The Rundown:
Blouse: Banana Republic Outlet, on sale for $12 (it’s a silk/cotton blend. Sooo light and airy, I love it!)
Skirt: Vintage thrift find
Belt: Thrifted, $1
Shoes: Kate Spade, off eBay (under $30)
Handbag: Bally

I also wore my sapphire & diamond earrings. I almost slipped on a statement necklace, but it’s slightly humid here today (ugh!), and my head has been bugging me. Me+Humidity=Migraine. I didn’t want to add to it with extra weight, my hair was annoying enough today!!

We went out to buy a barbecue grill, with the intention of grilling tonight. Only. The bloody thing wouldn’t fit in the back of my car! So tomorrow hopefully I can borrow my father’s truck for about 30 minutes and we can have those hamburgers I’ve been dreaming about all day!

I think we are going to go see fireworks later. Well, more like my husband will take our youngest two out to see them while I collapse into a heap in front of the air conditioning vent!!

Hope you and yours have a safe and happy 4th! Freedom!

Don’t forget about my giveaway. I will reveal the two prizes on Friday, and its open until Sunday.

Until next time,


What I’m Wearing

Since I blew my proposed ban, I might as well start wearing the summery items I purchased!


The Rundown:
Blouse: Banana Republic Outlet, $6.99
Skirt: Kate Spade, off eBay
Shoes: Miu Miu
Handbag: Bally (swapped for this!)

We also went and picked up more of this


Mmmm, salt water taffy!

And then a trip to the library, they have a summer reading program, this yet they are giving away a kindle fire! Which I already have one, but my daughter would love one. She is such an avid reader.


I ❤ my instantaneous photos! Find me on there, katespadegirlblog (I know, so original!)

Off to tackle my pile of books. And maybe eat more taffy.

Until next time,


What I’m Wearing

I actually threw this on last might to go to a school thing (sans cardigan, it was HOT last night!!!), and well, I liked it enough to wear it all day today!


The Rundown:
Cardigan: Old Navy (have this is 3 colors)
Dress: Nanette Lepore, off eBay
Shoes: Jimmy Choo flats, off eBay ($30!)
Brooch(on dress): Vintage
Necklace: Kohls (major sale!! Under $10)
Handbag: Bally, swapped for this

And it’s another crazy day! The last 7-8 days of school, it’s insane. Especially when you have 4 in essentially 4 different schools! And trying to keep my oldest on track for finals next week is next to impossible with the younger 3 having a 8-day long party going on! (well, 4 days for one, as she gets out before the boys)


Don’t forget my blog sale. Make me offers.

Until next time,


What I’m Wearing

I’m unsure about the cardigan, but as it will be warm enough to loose it by the time I get home from kid drop-off, I’m just going to go with it! I am just going to spit it out, Monday mornings stress me out!!! For some reason my children go crazy on Mondays!


The Rundown:
Cardigan: Banana Republic, $15(ish) on sale
Blouse: Merona from Target, $2.50 on sale last fall
Skirt: Ann Taylor, eBay
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Handbag: Bally
Necklace: Kohls, right around $3 on sale

Shoes & Bag (I always forget about this bag! I have two non Coach or Kate Spade, this Bally and one Prada bag)


Don’t forget, today is the last day to enter my giveaway!
