Basic Black

Today was basic black day….well, kind of! This is my “go-to” dress when I just don’t feel all that awesome. It really is easy, and it has pockets! It was warm enough today I didn’t really need a cardigan!

  1. Dress: Kate Spade Hope Dress (Paris collection, 2014)
  2. Belt: It’s a Wrap, no label
  3. Shoes: Jimmy Choo
  4. Handbag: Kate Spade Rachelle

And really? That’s all I have today. Nursing an aching back and trying to catch up on emails and paperwork! 

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway here!! Ends on Sunday March 15!

Until next time,


Black Friday

I woke up this morning absolutely dragging! So I threw on what I consider my “workhorse” dress! This is really my “go-to” when I feel blah, but still have to go to work or anything else.

Kate Spade Hope Dress:




Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: Off eBay (a pink version of the one I wore yesterday)
Shoes: Jimmy Choo

I also carried the same pink bag from yesterday.

I hope your Friday was fabulous!!

Until next time,



Woah, how is it Wednesday already?! Wait a second, what happened to Tuesday?!

Time is flying! My outfit this morning:






Blouse: Thrifted, no-name. $1
Skirt: Thrifted, no-name. $3
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Isn’t that skirt the cutest?! It must be an Anthropologie item, it’s well made, has a lining and a very nice zipper. No tag though. And sadly, no pockets! But for $3? Winner!

Yesterday I wore this:





Dress: Kate Spade Hope Dress (found this at the outlet, it’s from the Brighton Collection this last January)
Belt: Kate Spade, off eBay
Shoes: Jimmy Choo Strassed flats (Strassed by me)
Handbag: Kate Spade Wise Owl Quinn

Kids are back in school and I’m trying to adjust to the new schedule. Let me tell you, the most stressful thing EVER is the school pickup line. I don’t know why. You just feel this CRAZY energy radiating from the other cars! It’s bizarre. Anyway. I drop off early and pick up late, and avoid most of it.

Hope your week is grand! Today is a baking day, woo-hoo! I haven’t made macarons in ages, I’m super excited actually!

Until next time,


Hello Kitty!

Well, not clothing or accessories that is. But these tres adorable French Macarons I made for a friend of mine at her request:


Soooo adorable! I also made plain ones of course:




It had become my signature of sorts to put a jam or curd center in my macarons. It makes for mixing flavours in a very unique way! I imagine the patisseries in France do this, as I highly doubt I’m the first to think up such a lovely phenomenon.

I wore this today:





Dress: Kate Spade Hope (purchased the same day as my Adette dress. But I adore them both!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin (isn’t the colour to die for?! I love it!)
Handbag: Kate Spade

Not that I actually went anywhere exciting today, mainly spent it baking and catching up some administrative stuff here at home. Oh-so-fun!

Hope the week is flying for you too, I can’t believe this week is half over, and school is only 6 more days! Eeks!!

Until next time,
