So I figured the irony of wearing a lemon dress after my weekend was perfect for Monday!


  1. Dress: Kate Spade Kendrick (outlet only here in the U.S. Earlier this year. This one sold out FAST!)
  2. Belt: Kate Spade
  3. Shoes: Kate Spade
  4. Handbag: Kate Spade

And I got another fun swap through Instagram this past weekend! #springfeverswap That’s what I love about Instagram, all the fun connections I have made! Find me on there: @katespadegirlblog

My swap package was soooo appropriate: 


The glass lemons from Target!! Unsure where I am going to put them, but am very excited about them!! Maybe on the first piece I refinish from the stash we brought home! Ashlyn of “white after Labor Day” arranges these swaps and hers are the BEST. She really makes them awesome! I’m excited for the next one!

Until next time,


When Life Gives You Lemons

Wear a pretty dress!!





Dress: Kate Spade Lyric Dress
Shoes: Thrifted, Goodwill $3

And my ONE splurge from the surprise sale arrived this afternoon:


I LOVE IT! I’ve been hunting for this for nearly a year, super excited to have it. And with that I’m on a “shopping lite” program for the next couple of months. There isn’t really anything that I’m DYING to have with the current Toyko Collection (okay, the lucky cat clutch, but I’ll wait for it to go on sale). So I’m going to attempt to be good, to allow there to be something left for my husband to buy for my birthday & Christmas!

Have a wonderful weekend! I plan on doing some redecorating around the house and resting. Lots and lots of flipping on my bed with a big book. That’s MY idea of a good weekend at this moment in time!

Until next time,


End of June

Wow, it’s hard to believe the year is officially HALF over today! Where has the time gone?!

Anyway, I’ve spent the last few days with friends I only see once a year, and well, let’s just say it’s probably a good thing there is NO photographic evidence of our adventures!! That said, it’s Monday, and I’m back to work & back to “life as normal” (although, what IS normal anyway?!)

My outfit today (which I may or may not have also worn yesterday to church, before coming back home for a five hour nap!)






Dress: Kate Spade Lyric Dress (which I picked up on major sale about a week ago)
Shoes: Coach (old, off eBay 4+ years ago)
Handbag: Kate Spade (also off eBay)

I managed to get a light sunburn this weekend, so keeping accessories very light today. My skin just aches! I am never going to be a beach bunny!
