Oooooo, this week is flying! Last night I actually changed to go out, as it was super cold! I don’t often wear tights, but I think this may be the year of exploring tights & some wild coloured ones!


  1. Jacket: Target
  2. Dress: Kate Spade
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin
  4. Necklace: glass beads with a Ben Amun brooch

Today I took a summery eyelet dress and added accessories to make it more “fall” appropriate. Granted, “cold” where we live is anything under 60 degrees, but it does drop into the 20’s and 30’s at night!  


  1. Cardigan: Target (2+ years ago)
  2. Dress: Adrianna Papell
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin
  4. Necklace: glass beads (these have been on heavy rotation lately!) with a vintage brooch
  5. Handbag: Kate Spade

My outfit, if you subtract the cost of my shoes (which were still secondhand and minimal compared to their retail!) was less than $30! I got a lot of compliments today as well, it really was a classic look. Black heels would have looked just as good, however I liked the extra “pop” of the silver heels (and they are so comfortable!!). 

Until next time,



106 Degrees?!

Say what?! 106 degrees?! Yes, that’s what it was where I live today!!! The proof:


Note that it is about 7pm right now, and the photo above is WRONG! It’s 98 degrees out still! Oh my! Which meant I actually wore two outfits today, one to the office, one to run errands this evening.

The first:






Cardigan: Kate Spade
Top: Old Navy (Thrifted)
Skirt: Dress Corilynn
Belt: It’s a Wrap
Shoes: Crystal AB strass Manolos
Handbag: Kate Spade
Necklace: Ben Amun (which I LOVE!)

And what I wore out this afternoon:





Dress: David’s Bridal (goodwill find)
Brooch: Ben Amun (a newly discovered jewel maker whom I adore!)
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Tiny Purse: Kate Spade

And that’s a wrap! Stay cool, I’m going to drown my sorrows in a big bowl of strawberry ice cream and prop my feet up. It’s been one of those types of days!

Until next time,
