Ooo, I cannot even begin to tell you how thrilled I am that today is Friday! Because in addition to it being Friday, it’s now officially spring AND spring break starts today when the kids get out of school!

Sadly I have to work today, but I’m still embracing pastels and this gorgeous weather:





Cardigan: Kate Spade (THANKYOU to Woodbury Commons outlet! It was equivalent to the price of a target cardigan!!)
Dress: Calvin Klien
Belt: It’s a Wrap (it was made by someone)
Shoes: Strassed Nina Jelly flats
Necklace: Target (on sale!)

I have to share how much I adore Kate Spade cardigans! They wear beautifully and I hand-wash them. This and the pink one I wore two days ago both came from the Woodbury Commons outlet, a huge thank you AND shout out to the fabulous ladies who work there! They are awesome!

Have a wonderful day!!

Until next time,


It’s Hot. It’s Humid. I’ve Changed Twice

Yes. I have changed twice today. I started the day out in this:


And decided I felt a million years old. And it’s hot and humid.

The Rundown:
Blouse: Nanette Lepore
Skirt: Calvin Klien
Shoes: DIY Strassed Nina Jelly Flats
Handbag: Coach (not pictured)

So after running errands I came home and changed. Into this:


The Rundown:
Blouse: Old Navy
Skirt: Kate Spade Lawson Skirt
Shoes: DIY Strassed Nina Jelly flats
Handbag: Coach

Only problem?

I’m still hot. Ugh. A very good day for OPAC. other peoples air conditioning. Yes, the GOOD OPAC! I know, I’m brilliant, yes? (The Engineer seems to think so, well, sometimes.)

And my shoes. I was bored yesterday late afternoon. House was clean, laundry done, and the kids were in the swimming pool. Which meant they needed an attentive adult.

So I sat on the patio and attended them, while strassing. It took me a total of 3 hours.



And a shot of them with my handbag. The color is quite close!


And for those of you who do not follow me on Instgram, here’s the cake I threw together for my daughters birthday yesterday.


And voila! That’s all for today. I still have loads to do this afternoon, including heading to enjoy OPAC tonight.

Stay cool!

Until next time,


Short Skirt

It’s hot today. And humid. Two combinations I do not like. My skin is happy, but my joints? Hate it!!

Anyway, I had to pop out and run some errands so I was forced to make myself halfway presentable. Just in case I saw anyone I know. I wouldn’t want to shatter the illusion. (laughs) but in all seriousness, I ran into a friend of mine at the fabric store! How totally random is that?! And we were both hunting for fabric for the same event. Small world.

Today was short skirt day.


The Rundown:
Dress: Calvin Klein, outlet, under $20 (nearly 3 years ago!)
Belt: stolen from my Kate Spade Anemone dress
Shoes: Strassed Christian Louboutin flats
Handbag: Kate Spade

Another shot of my shoes:


And I have pretty aquamarine earrings that match my shoes. So fun.

Now back to hide in a hole. This weather, ugh!

Until next time,
