106 Degrees?!

Say what?! 106 degrees?! Yes, that’s what it was where I live today!!! The proof:

Note that it is about 7pm right now, and the photo above is WRONG! It’s 98 degrees out still! Oh my! Which meant I actually wore two outfits today, one to the office, one to run errands this evening.

The first:

June is Here!

2014 is flying by! I suppose when you run 17 different directions at any given time, well, days go by quickly!

I made it through my “dress a day in may”! I believe I wore more than 30 dresses (not skirts, but actual dresses!), and would have worn a dress yesterday as well, except it was Relay for Life, and I needed to wear purple & grey for my team!

I walk for Team Kayla, here’s a recent article about this extraordinary young lady! Kayla Norris

So, yesterday, I wore this (and wore it until I got home today at 10:45am! We started yesterday at 8am). We wear grey to support brain cancer awareness!

20140601-174805.jpg

Shirt: Plain Target T-Shirt, I added the embellishments.
Skirt: Purchased at It’s a Wrap (and it was perfect!!)
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik flats Strassed in Crystal AB (the shoes I was rushing to finish last week!)

Some photos from the event:

I was able to bring in my oldest child’s AFJROTC unit to the event with me, and oh my, they were AMAZING!!! They were there at 9am on Saturday morning to prep for a 10am colour guard event, and then I had a handful who stayed until 10am this morning (Relay is a 24-hour event), and many who came & went throughout the event. All together I had somewhere between 15-25 cadets (I lost track, 3 hours of sleep will do that!!), and between them they racked up over 270 community service hours this weekend!! I’m a proud momma, especially as my child was there for 27 hours with me!

Anyway, I’m chilling this afternoon after a 5-hour nap. My wonderful husband is making dinner, and I have ice packs on my poor feet. Another year of Relay put to bed, and it was Team Kayla’s best year yet. I can’t wait for next year!

On that note, welcome to June! I have a really fun little “it’s summer!” Giveaway planned, keep an eye out for details later this week.

Until next time,

Jules


Such a Sad Sad Day

This week has been brutal, so crazy. But I had made it to Thursday, and was so excited.

Until this afternoon. When I went to change and the zipper on my blush pink Emma dress broke! What?! How does a zipper on a Kate Spade dress break?! This is NOT OKAY!!! See photos:

20140522-201823.jpg

Upon closer inspection, it appears that someone had messed with this zipper before. (I purchased it from an outlet location) I was so SO livid. While I realize I picked it up at about 75% off retail, it’s still a $400 dress, which means the zipper should not break!! Anyway, I have contacted Kate Spade and am seeing if I can get a whole new zipper and have a seamstress replace it. Sigh.

But before that, my outfit:

Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: Alannah Hill
Shoes: Kate Spade
Necklace: Burlington Coat Factory

Yesterday I went to Disneyland with my daughter for a field trip & my mom tagged along. I totally repeated my dress, because pockets are essential at Disneyland!! I didn’t get a full shot, but here’s a few:

Don’t even ask what is going on with my hands! So funny!!

Cardigan: INC, from it’s a wrap (off the Desperate Housewives set)
Dress: Kate Spade Gayle dress (outlet only style)
Shoes: Multi-Strass Manolo Blahniks

And lastly, Tuesday:

Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

So much else going on, but I will save it for another day. Yesterday was long and crowded and the scandal of my zipper breaking today has done me in. I’m going to tuck myself into bed and hope the zipper gods find me soon.

Until next time,

Jules


St Patrick’s Day

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

I of course dressed for the occasion:

20140317-203622.jpg

Cardigan: Target
Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik, Strassed by me
Necklace: Juicy Couture (as it seems my subtle hints to my husband for a real 4-leaf clover has fallen flat. Or perhaps he’s just bought too many dresses for me over the past month!)

Made special treats to tuck into the kids’ lunch boxes:

That was my sole ode to today’s green-filled holiday.

Hope you had a wonderful St Patrick’s Day!

Until next time,

Jules
