Friday!

Oh my, what a long week it’s been! Last Saturday I was up early and running….to chaperone 57 teenagers on an overnight trip to the USS Midway. Let’s just say I haven’t recovered from that!

Yes, I wore strassed flats the entire weekend. And I didn’t lose a single stone!!!

I got to run the “damage control” evacuation, and yes, stand on a glass floor 3 ship levels up!

And Monday, I was so exhausted I didn’t even snap outfit photos, just my feet propped up chilling on my couch:

Top: Nanette Lepore (old)
Skirt: Claude Brown

Wednesday, I wore one dress for the day, then changed after cross country, as I felt going to a new bible study in a white dress that was no longer white might not be the best idea in the world!

If this week has taught me ANYTHING? It’s that if you have a closet full of great dresses, no matter how exhausted you are, you can still look great when it’s hot, your tired, and you run 50 million places! I get to stay home this weekend, and let me tell you, I AM SO EXCITED!

Hope your week was grand and you have a lovely weekend!

Until next time,

Monday Musings

Oh my, it’s Monday (DUH), and that means we are on the last half of summer vacation. In three short weeks the kids go back to school! In fact, school activities have already begun.

What I wore today:

Dress: Calvin Klein, under $10
Belt: Anthropologie, $16 on sale (picked it up in Newport this past Saturday, I’ve been eyeing the beaded belts there for ages!!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Gozul flats (which I have in many many colours, so comfortable!)

No Jewlery today, fighting a migraine, and the weight on my neck makes me even more miserable. We are having the most wretched weather for our area, I just want to crawl into an ice bath and come out when it’s all over.

As I have not heard from the two winners of my giveaway, I have re-chosen using random.org. Please email me by this Friday to claim your prize!

New winners:

1. Liz @ Shopping My Closet (comment)

2. Robin (email entry)

Ladies, please email me to claim your prizes!

Until next time,

It’s Thursday Already?!

This week is flying by!! Anyway, a quick recap, I am keeping up with my “dress a day in may”, except I will have to break it for Saturday, as I realized I don’t have any appropriate dresses that are grey! (Our team colours for Relay for Life) In fact, my lone grey dress is my wedding gown! (It’s more of a cocktail dress, but still)

And that’s it for today. I’m back to slaving in the kitchen, cupcakes, cake pops, and white chocolate macadamia cookies are on the “schedule” tonight. Along with some peach ice cream for my kids & husband. Mmmmmm.

Until next time,

Jules


Two-Dress Tuesday!

Today was a two-dress day, due to an accident with a container of chicken & the wind picking up!

I started with this:

Cardigan: Target (which lasted until about 8:45am!)
Dress: Calvin Klein
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Necklace: Vintage

After the incident with the container of chicken (ew!), I got home and changed, as I had a school thing to attend this afternoon. I threw on what I wore Sunday, adding a belt and different shoes:

Dress: Kate Spade Adette

And this is a typical sight in my closet by about 5pm:

Yes, I have a shoe problem!

Until next time,

Happy Friday!

I must say I was happy to see Friday start. I’m looking forward to this weekend, which will be the first weekend in over a month where I get to stay “home”! I may even spend tomorrow on my PJ’s!!

But today I am wearing this (but may change as the wind has started howling!):

Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Calvin Klein
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Necklace: JCrew
Handbag: Kate Spade

I’m keeping the dress-only challenge going so far, as tempting as my favorite navy pencil skirt was this morning! But it’s also forcing me to pull out some dresses I haven’t worn in a while, AND I also see I need to do another closet purge, badly!! It’s on my “to-do” list this weekend, I’m hoping I can stick to it! Have a wonderful weekend!

Until next time,

Jules

I still don’t have my car back, so I am enjoying the lovely loaner still. Perhaps that’s making the week fly by, knowing my carriage has to go back soon!! Oh and the 8 dozen macarons. Just a typical week I suppose!

Hope your week is off to a roaring start!!

Until next time,

Jules


Good Friday

Wow, it doesn’t feel like Easter weekend! I imagine it is because my husband and I packed up and are headed to Northern California for a wedding. Yes, we left the kids behind! I feel guilty as a mom, but my parents have them, and I know my kids are most likely (okay, totally likely!!) to be more excited about grandma & grandpa than mom & dad!!

That said, I’m glad we didn’t drag them, I did all the desserts for this wedding and the car is precariously packed, in hopes the French Macarons all survive the 6+ hour trip!!

My travel ensemble:

Dress: Calvin Klein
Belt: Thrift
Shoes: Kate Spade

And this is why I haven’t been posting this week, I have become a cookie. Or at least it feels like it!!! French Macarons, iced sugar cookies, sugar cookies, cake balls, a small cake & some other cookies. Some teaser photos:

I’m excited to set it all up tomorrow and share photos! I also am finally going to wear the sequin Kate Spade Emma dress, eeks!!! I probably won’t post again until Sunday, I have terrible cell service where we will be. But on Sunday my husband and I are headed to Santa Cruz to celebrate his birthday, and just have some time away with nowhere to be!! I found an adorable boutique hotel and we will hit the boardwalk….it’ll be a first for both of us! I’ll take it, it’s not always easy to find things new to “us”, one of the hazards of a second marriage! But I wouldn’t change a thing in my life, the good OR the bad.

Because life is that, an experience!!

Have a wonderful Easter weekend, and those out on the road, travel safe! And travel colorfully!

Until next time,

Jules
