What I’m Wearing

I’m going for a total black & white today! (with a few sparkles!!)


The Rundown:
Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Kate Spade
Brooch: (on dress like a “buckle”) Vintage, off eBay
Shoes: Miu Miu sequin heels (I love these! So comfortable!!)
Handbag: Kate Spade
Earrings: Diamond Pave Dangles

I decided to skip a wild necklace, and just wore larger earrings. These are my “wedding” earrings, one of the special things I bought for my wedding day (interesting story! But for another time) I really like wearing them, they are the biggest earrings I have (aside from one pair of clip-ons. Costume earrings, or silver, make my ears itch)


And I am off and running. Have a wonderful day!

Until next time,


What I’m Wearing

Ugh, my toes! Wearing heels those few hours Saturday, I’m still paying for it!! (I ended up changing for church that evening)

What I wore Saturday night


All things worn previously (I think)

So on to today!


The Rundown:
Cardigan: Target
Blouse: Kohls
Skirt: Kenneth Cole (purchased 5+ years ago)
Slip: Vintage “flounce” slip.
Brooch on skirt: vintage from eBay
Shoes: Miu Miu
Handbag: Coach, dark brown leather

I got the idea for the brooch from a display in Dillards, oh 8 or 9 years ago? And the slip peeking out from Legally Blonde (I adore that movie!! She is so right! About men and shoes. I have taught my husban about good shoes. Of course now he scoffs at me when I search for shoes at target, usually in vain!)

Here’s my bag


Detail on the brooch


And my sparkly Miu Mius! I really adore these shoes (excuse my swollen feet!! It’s a tad humid here this morning, I tend to have swollen joints on these days)


I think I have decided which pair of shoes I am going to strass. Now to pick a crystal color!!

And later, I will make an attempt to post my giveaway winners! Yes, there will be 3!!

Until next time,

What I’m Wearing

Busy busy day today! I decided to step it up a notch, I felt so casual yesterday! (it was the shoes)

I forgot about the pair I have on today, they are about a half size too large, which with my swollen toes, it’s perfect!


The Rundown:
Cardigan: Tracy Reese, off eBay (two years ago)
Blouse: Lauren Conrad for Kohls
Skirt: Escada Gold Label, my sister found this at Salvation Army nearly 3 years ago for under $5. (I have another one too, both are navy)
Shoes: Miu Miu
Handbag: Grey Kate Spade Maryann
Necklaces: Kate Spade & Banana Republic

Here is a closeup of my shoes & bag


My layered necklaces (not sure if this will last all day, they are awfully heavy!)


I toyed with the idea of a belt, but I skipped it. Your thoughts?

What I’m Wearing

It’s been a good weekend. Off to grab some breakfast and go to the morning church service. John Maxwell does the message, he really is a unique man in what he does! And he is SO approachable!! I spoke with him last year, and get this, he remembered. How insane is that?? I really have enjoyed his teachings and I started reading his new book (I’m an avid reader, thank goodness for amazon, kindle and free books!!), and I am excited to apply it in my life.

Anyway, today I’m toning it down, more casual (I changed after dinner last night, changed my blouse and took a cardigan instead of my jacket. I ❤ that jacket, but frankly cashmere is much much warmer!!) and I adore this skirt!!


The Rundown:
Cardigan: Ross
Blouse: eBay (I have a grey one too, $9 for both!)
Skirt: eBay (same seller as my blouse and I also got my Chloe skirt from her)
Shoes: Miu Miu (these are really really comfortable heels! Once I broke them in, wow. I really do believe expensive or at least leather, shoes make a difference)

I’ll probably take my yellow bag from yesterday, and I have my big tote for all the “stuff”. (concession stand food is terrible!)


Here’s a closeup of the detail on my cardigan & blouse.


I’ll probably wear my pearl & diamond earrings. The blouse is busy enough I don’t want to be fussy. 🙂

It’s going to be a beautiful day!

Until next time,



Whew, like I said earlier, packing is never fun!!

Some peeks into what I’m taking with me to Las Vegas this weekend. It’s a business trip, so no spangly little dresses for clubbing or anything (not that I would actually go, but you know)

I’ll tuck a pair of flats in, but after muh agonizing, I’m only packing two pairs of shoes. I’m not counting what I’m wearing on the drive.


Some of my much-loved Kate Spade pieces are coming with me. I have 3 black skirts from there, and I’m always looking for another! Same with cardigans.

This’ll be my maybe outfit. You know, backup!



I still need to figure out makeup. Being a girl is complicated sometimes!

How do you pack? Any tips? Other than a mobile closet of course!

Until next time,
