Oh Friday (although it’s technically Saturday morning at this point!) how happy was I to see you this week! Between still trying to heal from the accident in May, to dealing with some big issues with kids, school, and utility companies, I’m wiped out! However I have a big cake tomorrow, hence why I’m up so late! 

My outfit today: 


  1. Dress: Kate Spade (I like this one because it’s very loose, which is beneficial on days like today when everything ACHES)
  2. Shoes: Kate Spade (Saks Fifth Avenue exclusive in 2013/2013)
  3. Handbag: Kate Spade (that one time my husband wanted to buy 5 handbags from a surprise sale…I talked him down to two)
  4. Necklace: Kohls (I think? I don’t really remember!)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I’m excited to finish my cake in the morning and spend some downtime with the kids & the husband. I think we all need a “lazy” weekend after the week we have had!

Until next time,


Pretty in Pink

Today, as I pulled out a poofy pink dress, I realized I have nearly a dozen UNWORN dresses in my closet. Oops!!! But alas, I will wear them, one day. (Isn’t the first step to admit you have a problem??????) This one was NOT on my “buy” list at all. In fact it’s been on sale for months and I’ve always gone “naw, I have the pink Roset dress, they are the same colour” and passed.

Then it showed up on super sale, in my size. The husband said “buying it, if you hate it you can return it”. (He decided he loved it. Why I ever question him, I do not know) Well, low and behold, that funky side bow isn’t quite so funky after all! (It’s also hard when you can’t find a photo of anyone else wearing the dress and your local Neiman’s never carried it) AND its a different shade of pink than my Roset dress. It’s more of a rose pink vs the bubblegum pink.






Sadly it was too chilly today to wear it sans cardigan, but not chilly enough to break out my fur coat (which, let’s face it, would have been spectacular!)

Cardigan: Kate Spade (3+ years?)
Dress: Kate Spade (Neiman Marcus exclusive. Sold out, but does pop up if you watch the sale section.)
Shoes: Kate Spade (Saks Fifth Avenue Exclusive, Holiday 2013)
Necklace: eBay

I wasn’t feeling cheerful this morning, but it was hard to not be slightly cheerful when wearing such a bright colour! I’m really dreading the dentist tomorrow, and the interesting treatment plan we have. Yet also thankful it is covered by insurance, something very unexpected. I imagine I will be slightly wonky the rest of this week!!!

Until next time,


It’s Friday!

Yay for Friday! I’m excited to put this week to bed and embrace the weekend.

Today’s outfit (I get SO many comments on this simple little dress!)




Dress: David’s Bridal (purchased at Goodwill)
Shoes: Kate Spade (from Saks)
Brooch: Vintage, off eBay

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Until next time,



Wow, it’s such a gorgeous day today!!! Seriously, can one beat this:


I mean, wow! I wish I could say I spent time out there, but alas, me + sun does not equal a nice equation! My kids are out enjoying it this afternoon though!

My outfits today(I changed it up a bit after lunch):





The photos above do NOT show the true colour of my sweater! These are more accurate (and show how important lighting is for photographs!):





Cardigan: Kate Spade (Woodbury Commons outlet)
Top: Old Navy (NWT, $3 @ goodwill)
Skirt: Corilynn
Shoes: Kate Spade Multi-Glitter Heels (I also own these in a pale rose gold pink)
Handbag: Kate Spade

And of course it seems it’s never a proper Wednesday unless I bake something! I threw together some lemon-raspberry thumbprint cookies for someone quite dear to me. Especially because he consumes large quantities of anything I bake for him!


Hope your week is going stellar!

Until next time,



To my readers, an apology for being MIA yesterday and today. I’ve had a house full of sick children, and well, yeah.

I hope to be back to regularly scheduled programming tomorrow!

I did however start this:




After 7 coats of glitter paint


Need a jewel for the toe. I also might strass parts of the shoe as well. It’s been a nice distraction from the chaos!!

Until next time,
