Saturday can go three ways in my house, either I’m working, we are cleaning/yard work, or we do NOTHING.

Sadly today was a house/yard work day. I spent the morning vacuuming out my SUV, something that hadn’t been done in months. I expected to find hundreds of tiny crystals from all my shoes. Imagine my surprise when this was the sum of my sparkly “loot”


Yup, 4 measly crystals! Believe me, I checked closely before vacuuming, merely because I was curious. In fact only two of those were found in the front of the car, where I sit, the other two found in the back where my daughter sits! I daresay that I should be proud, as it must mean I am doing something right with my shoes!

Anyway, I have spent the rest of the day with the piles of laundry (I provided linens for a party last night), and overseeing my daughter in her housecleaning “duties”. (She chose to clean bathrooms and sweep floors over mowing lawns. I don’t blame her, it was hot today!) We did sneak out briefly late this afternoon to run a quick errand, and so I got dressed:





Cardigan: Target (2+ years ago)
Skirt: INC, thrifted
Shoes: Christian Louboutin (eBay)
Handbag: Kate Spade

Don’t forget, two more days to enter my giveaway:

Have a great weekend!
