It’s Friday!

Oh my, the week has flown by!!! I took a mini-vacation out to Palm Springs with my assorted children (the funny things stepmoms come up with) on Wednesday, and we got back super late last night. Today I had to work my office job AND meet with potential clients for my event business. Never a dull moment I suppose!

Some outfit recaps! First what I wore Tuesday (which became “take my daughter to work day”)

Cardigan: Kate Spade (off eBay, under $40)
Dress: Kate Spade Corley Dress
Belt: Thrifted ($1)
Shoes: Siam Strassed Jimmy Choo flats (done by me)

Wednesday I did a total outfit repeat, as this particular dress is wind-proof, AND it’s a nice weight for this heat of Palm Springs (where we were headed):

That afternoon we hit my favorite place, an ice rink! (I’m not picky about WHICH rink, just give me a sheet of ice)

My two favorite brands of “shoes”, Christian Louboutin and Harlick (the brand of skates I’ve always worn. Which these are a new pair I am breaking in. I have blisters y’all! BLISTERS!!!!!).

I also visited this beauty while running through the outlets:

I will be bringing that sparkly wedge home soon, very very soon. Isn’t it divine?! Of course no trip to Palm Springs is complete without a visit to the gals over at Kate Spade on El Paseo. Which is an awesome store. And I found this:

I’m in love. Go see them on Thursdays all summer for the “sip and save”, they have snacks, bubbly water & 15% off your purchase! Score!!

Thursday I didn’t get an outfit shot, but I wore this:

Dress: Banana Republic (Thrifted)

And since we were there, another trip to the rink:

My mini-me was out there, attempting to convince me she NEEDS to be a skater. Until she took a hard fall and decided she was done!

And finally, today. As I stated above, I had to go to work, and meet clients, so I had to manage a somewhat professional look while staying cool in the 100+ degree heat here! And by the way, it was 108 in Palm Springs yesterday, but was SO dry it was nice outside. It was just hot and gross here at home in the high desert today. Go figure!!!

Dress: Kate Spade Gayle Dress (outlet only style. They also have it in orange)
Belt: Kate Spade, off eBay
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Handbag: Kate Spade

Let me tell you, I am sore and tired after all that skating! I have some serious respect for my younger self, who used to spend 5-6 hours a DAY on a sheet of cold unforgiving ice. Wow. I’m enjoying rediscovering muscles I haven’t used in over a decade!

Anyway, that’s all for tonight. I have finally put the finishing touches on the summer giveaway I have been working on, and will post that tomorrow! So excited to share some fun new favorites with my readers!

Until next time,
