We arrived! The Engineer and I made it to our destination, checked into the nice hotel, the one I’m not ashamed to check in to via Facebook! We got cleaned up, and here’s what I’m wearing this afternoon:


The Rundown:
Cardigan: Old Navy
Blouse: Banana Republic
Skirt: Custom by Sandee Royalty
Belt: Black belt stolen from my Kate Spade Anemone dress
Shoes: Black Décolleté Christian Louboutin heels
Handbag: Kate Spade
Necklace: Robert Rose

Also, if you don’t follow me on Instagram, you didn’t see my most recent picture:


My caption? “Leave home for 36hrs, take 4 pairs of shoes, two pairs strassed!”. I realize I was incorrect, we are actually gone for about 72hrs including the fact that I went to work with The Engineer yesterday and we left the house at 5:45am!! In fact, I brought more pairs of shoes than changes of clothing. But see, it’s one pair of heels, and one pair of flats for each outfit! And my gold strassed Jimmy Choos for travel. (just wait, I intend to have only strassed shoes for my DC trip in October. Why not?! I have glue and extra crystals, might as well enjoy them all)

Have a lovely weekend! I’m sure you will see more from me.

Until next time,


Road Trip

The Engineer and I are on a road trip this weekend! We left from his office yesterday, and headed up through Las Vegas, and through Northern Nevada. Which is gorgeous!!!

I was strassing my shoes in addition to randomly checking in at crazy spots on Facebook and snagging cool photos! So, first my shoes (which took a total of 13hrs. It would have been about 10, but driving forces me to strass slower)



I love them!!! They are drying now, I hope to wear them tomorrow.

And for some photos of our drive:

Las Vegas Speedway


Lilly animal crackers! (found at market in Alamo, NV)


Small town (I don’t remember which town this was, we found so many. Ute tiny mountain-ish towns)





Some view photographs (we were, and still are right now, on HWY 93)




And my favorite photos, the rainbow, and then about 20 miles later, a double rainbow!!



We sadly stopped in Wells, NV for the night, I really would prefer to my discus that experience. The Engineer and I stopped just long enough to sleep and were up and out by 6am this morning!

Our goal is to have breakfast in Twin Falls, ID. In about 20 minutes from now.

Follow me on Instagram! I have been posting alot of fun random photos, katespadegirlblog

And yes, I have on my sparkly Jimmy Choo flats this morning. On reflection, I should have brought a plain pair of flats for travel. Oh well, perhaps I have been able to inspire someone along the way!

Until next time,
