Today was ROUGH. It’s been really humid where we live and my arthritis has been, well rather rude about it. So those 5:30am alarms are rude too! But I dragged myself out this morning to a school board meeting at 7am (I highly recommend all parents attend at least one, it gives you a different perspective on what’s going on), and had to look halfway presentable: 


  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade
  2. Dress: Kate Spade Liana Dress 
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin Simples
  4. Necklace: Kate Spade

Of course I did change before going to work this afternoon, as the Liana dress is gorgeous, but my ribs are bugging me again, so I needed something a little looser to run around in all afternoon! So I pulled out this number: 


  1. Dress: Kate Spade
  2. Belt: Thrifted
  3. Shoes: Jimmy Choo (I’ve had these since before I started blogging! 4+ years)

I don’t love this dress all that much, but I get so many comments on it when I wear it. It’s got so many options for shoes and belts too, with the hot air balloon colors! My main dislike of it is the fact that it’s incredibly difficult to get on and off. The fabric is also rather heavy and we’ve had such warm weather all year! It was in the mid 70’s today, so I was able to wear it and not be too hot OR need a cardigan! Best part? It has pockets! I am glad I picked it up, I just wish it was easier to put on and take off. 

Are you gearing up for Halloween? We have our school fall festival tomorrow night and I am so at a loss for a costume this year!! Any ideas? I am open to suggestions for tomorrow night! 

Until next time,



Oh my, what a long week it’s been! Last Saturday I was up early and running….to chaperone 57 teenagers on an overnight trip to the USS Midway. Let’s just say I haven’t recovered from that!

Weekend photos:









Yes, I wore strassed flats the entire weekend. And I didn’t lose a single stone!!!

I got to run the “damage control” evacuation, and yes, stand on a glass floor 3 ship levels up!



And Monday, I was so exhausted I didn’t even snap outfit photos, just my feet propped up chilling on my couch:


Tuesday’s ensemble:




Top: Nanette Lepore (old)
Skirt: Claude Brown
Shoes: Jimmy Choo

Wednesday, I wore one dress for the day, then changed after cross country, as I felt going to a new bible study in a white dress that was no longer white might not be the best idea in the world!




Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Calvin Klein
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Nina, but Strassed by me

Yesterday I went to see a play (one of the artists we manage was in it), so I got all gussied up:

And lastly, today.

If this week has taught me ANYTHING? It’s that if you have a closet full of great dresses, no matter how exhausted you are, you can still look great when it’s hot, your tired, and you run 50 million places! I get to stay home this weekend, and let me tell you, I AM SO EXCITED!

Hope your week was grand and you have a lovely weekend!

Until next time,
