Friday Night Recap

Oh my. Today. Is. Over. So happy about that!

For some fashion recaps! I did end up changing Wednesday night for “back to school” night, as I was attempting to recruit parents into the ROTC booster club *crosses fingers*. So I rocked a little “Air Force blue” (with some Navy thrown in for the husband)




Dress: French Blue Mariella Dress
Belt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Montana Strass Christian Louboutin’s
Handbag: Kate Spade Via Limoni Lina

Yesterday I had to take my car in for service, and ended up in Orange County. I neglected to capture a full-body shot before I left home, so I snagged one in the bathroom where I was. It’s not that great! Oops! Only thing missing yesterday? I forgot my red lipstick! OOPS!!!





Cardigan: Target (old, in fact this may have to go bye-bye. It’s looking it’s age. So sad!!)
Dress: Kate Spade Fleur Dress (from 2011/2012-ish? I’ve had it at least two years, and I purchased at the outlet)
Belt: Anthropologie
Shoes: Kate Spade

And today. Not the best of photos, but I had to do this first thing this morning:


Why?! Because there were ants in my shoes! I took everything out, my husband and I rearranged everything tonight. I officially have 2/3’s, quite possibly 3/4’s of the closet at this point! Ugh. Ants are gone. It seems they like the smell of my shoes. (Better than my kitchen!!)

So, what I wore today:



Dress: Kate Spade Hattie Dress
Shoes: Kate Spade
Handbag: Kate Spade Wise Owl

Anyway, I am hoping to tackle the rest of the closet, my clothing donation pile (and what I’ll flip on eBay) and attempting to FINALLY fix the zipper on my pale pink Emma dress.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Until next time,


Day 12!

It’s hard to believe we have nearly hit the halfway point for the month of May! Nevertheless, it’s the 12th, and it’s day 12 of my “dress a day in may” journey!

This is dress #15 for the month.






Cardigan: Target (old, 2-ish years old)
Dress: Kate Spade Fleur Dress (purchased at an outlet a couple years ago on major sale)
Belt: Kate Spade (came with a different dress)
Shoes: Montana Strass Christian Louboutin heels
Necklace: Diamond bow, purchased at Ross a few years ago
Handbag: Kate Spade, off eBay

You can’t see it, but I also have a hot pink Kate Spade petticoat underneath my dress. A couple years ago they released a pink & a black petticoat.8 managed to track one down on eBay for 1/3 of the retail price. It’s a really lovely petticoat, just enough “poof”, and it’s a nice quality material.

Hope your Monday is swell!!

Until next time,
