Wait, it’s November? And we have a time change coming? *head spins* How is this possible?! This year has FLOWN by! There is a silver lining this weekend….additional 30% off sale items at Kate Spade!

I am trying to not look (it’s very hard). I really don’t need another dress. In fact, I should probably continue to clear my closet out. 

Some recent outfits….I’ve been settling into the “new normal”, and combined with the insane hot/cold/hot/cold weather patterns which flares up my health challenges (ugh), but still make an attempt to dress every day!

The pink polka dot bags are not real leather, but they sure are cute! I did pick up a penguin, I mean, with my collection of creatures I HAD too. He’s super cute! I haven’t made it into specialty, but there is some super cute pieces online. I’m not excited about the apparel (which my closet is probably excited about!), but they nailed it on keychains and glitter this year. 

Until next time,



Oh boy…today was BRUTAL. My antics of the previous few days hit me hard. I am blessed to have a brilliant massage therapist and chiropractor who help keep me mobile…and I got to see them today!

My outfit: 


  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade
  2. Dress: Kate Spade Deanna Dress (it’s a purple-pink colour)
  3. Shoes: Kate Spade (eBay find. Not the most comfortable shoes, but I can tolerate them for short periods of time. I knew I wasn’t on my feet much today)
  4. Handbag & Scarf: Kate Spade
  5. Necklace: Kate Spade 

I caved and hunted these down today….using an assorted combination of gift cards(I guess saving points can be useful sometimes, right?!)….I’m secretly hoping they arrive very quickly! (The store is about 70 miles from my house) 

I am just seriously falling in love with Sophia Webster!! The details on her shoes, not to mention how unique they are. Heaven help me if she ever starts making clothes!! See her current collection here. Such fun and whimsicle designs! I adore Charlotte Olympia’s designs, but I am not a platform girl. Sophia Webster seems to be the same type of whimsy, but without those platforms!! The quality is sublime as well. 
Until next time,
