Weekend in Review + Big Announcement

This past weekend was unique, in that we had only our eldest child with us. Who needs LOTS of hours behind the wheel. So he was the driver and my husband and I inflicted that unique torture only parents can…SHOPPING TORTURE! I remember it as a kid! I think it’s a rite of passage!!

Saturday I wore this:



  1. Dress: Kate Spade (super old!)
  2. Belt: eBay
  3. Shoes: Nina, painted and Strassed by me
  4. Handbag: Kate Spade

We bought lots, mainly sweaters and polo shirts at the Gap for $1.79 for my husband:


And ties for $1.97 at Banana Republic:

 Sunday I wore this:




  1. Cardigan: Boden
  2. Dress: Kate Spade (outlet exclusive here in the US, available now)
  3. Belt: Kate Spade
  4. Shoes: Kate Spade

I snagged my daughter this at Target for a mere $10 (my husband thought it was Kate Spade!)


And today I wore this:




  1. Cardigan: Boden (same as yesterday)
  2. Dress: Kate Spade
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin
  4. Handbag: Kate Spade

I also bought wine based on my purse:


Hey, the oldest child went to camp this morning, so I planned a romantic Italian-themed night for dinner! Picnic style! I doubt we will open this bottle, but it seemed like a really fun idea at Costco. Along with everything else I bought that I didn’t need. Don’t. Go. To. Costco. Hungry.

Oh and the crowing moment of my day? I finally got my act together and picked giveaway winners!!! Ta-da!

In order, 1st, 2nd and 3rd: (top to bottom)

Ladies please email me with your address so I can send your prizes!! 

Until next time,


Giveaway Winner!

Oh my goodness, I haven’t had time to sit down much this week, but I did pick a winner!!


I’ve been heads down in the kitchen:







Sunday we did make it to church, I wore this:




Cardigan: JCrew Kids
Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Kate Spade

Yesterday, I had dreams of Capri, as we enjoyed 80-degree weather:





Cardigan: JCrew Kids (I love this cardigan!)
Dress: Kate Spade Elza Dress
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Handbag: Kate Spade (killer Nordstrom rack find!)

And today, (well more like yesterday as its past midnight now!) yes, I baked in this, isn’t that what an apron is for?!:





Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Kate Spade (it’s like a reddish-pink hue. I didn’t like it at first, but I love it now!)
Belt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Handbag: Kate Spade

Did you buy anything from the surprise sale? I picked up a few things, but I am disappointed that the dresses I want have not only not gone on sale, they have disappeared off Kate Spade completely! I’m not sure what’s going on over there, but I’m slightly disappointed with this season’s offerings. Hopefully as 2015 progresses the line will go back to what I love about it.

And if not? Well, I don’t need another dress anyway!

Until next time,
