Weekend in Review

Another weekend, for the books! This one was a little crazy, merely because my husband had to work. Boo! I still managed to get myself together both days, and the laundry is done and the house is fairly clean. Success!



  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade
  2. Skirt: Basil & Maude
  3. Shoes: Jimmy Choo

And then today, for church and a party later: 


  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade
  2. Dress: Kate Spade
  3. Belt: secondhand
  4. Shoes: Jimmy Choo
  5. Necklace: beads with vintage brooch

Here’s to a fabulous week ahead!

Until next time,



Yay Friday! My outfit today: 


  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade (old!)
  2. Skirt: vintage, Thrifted 
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Isn’t this cardigan gorgeous? The detailing is just stunning! I was excited to find this piece recently!

I did decide on a costume for the fall festival tonight, I pulled out pieces and threw together a flapper ensemble. However I was hit with an insane migraine just before leaving and didn’t get any photos. I cannot tell you how thankful I was tonight that my oldest drives! He got back from a huge cross country event about an hour into the event and I was able to come home and crash. Luckily my migraine “broke”, and I feel human again, even if it is nearly midnight. Whoops! Nothing worse than a sudden migraine like that, although if I had been paying attention I would have known it was looming! I get strange auras before, but I don’t always catch them. Sigh. 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I am off on another adventure Sunday night, so my posting may be sporadic over the next week as I travel in & out of town again.

Until next time,

  2. Belt: Anthropologie

Did you see the Spring/Summer 2016 Kate Spade presentation on Friday? So many cute things! My favorites: 

I love the longer hemlines and the pretty florals! It will be interesting to see what they end up actually producing for retail sale. I wish I was in NYC, what a fun sample sale (true samples, not just an online sale) Kate Spade probably has! Occasionally I have found sample pieces on the secondhand market, but it’s rare! 

I will say, Kate Spade is KILLING it on the novelty bag front lately! I’m curious to see how the shoes end up working, I’m not sure how I feel about the fact that they are Valentino Rockstud-lookalikes! 

Until next time,
