Pinky the baby owl went to the farmers market with me today! It’s been so hot and humid trying to lug around a large bag is not really fun, but it is perfect weather for jelly shoes, as they sort of mold to your feet (I do not recommend wearing for long periods of time!). I love this shift dress for this time of year…if only it had pockets!


  1. Dress: Kate Spade
  2. Shoes: Nina
  3. Handbag: Kate Spade

I found this gorgeous vintage Trifari necklace while there: 


Then I came home and spent my afternoon making masses of sugar flowers: 


And I finally hunted down a partial photograph from Friday night: 


But alas you can’t see my shoes nor the color of my dress! Lots of sparkle though!

Until next time,


Summer is Looming

Oh heavens is it HOT today! When we left the house to go to church at 10am, it was already 89 degrees out! I planned for it, as we attended a summer church barbecue after service, but still!!!

I had a unique problem this morning. What I wanted to wear, and what my body allowed me to wear. Meaning: I had to ditch the heels!! But I snapped shots of each ensemble anyway, for fun.

What I wanted to wear:





Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Calvin Klein
Belt: Alannah Hill
Shoes: Kate Spade
Necklace: Ben Amun (his jewels are TO DIE FOR!)

Alas, I twisted my hip yesterday walking, and so it’s sore today (hello ice packs! Really it was probably the twisting while walking combined with pushing my body on the ice. My feet forget how out of shape my muscles are when I step on that ice!!). So I swapped a few pieces on my outfit:





Cardigan: Tracy Reese (4+ years old)
Dress: Calvin Klein
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Nina, Strassed by me
Necklace: Ben Amun

I have to talk about my necklace. I discovered Ben Amun a while back and fell in love. Like OMG, in LOVE. And then saw the price tags! Oops!!! So I was resigned to gaze from afar. But wait, there is always ebay! Not many pieces pop up, but I found this one for under $20. And it is divine. The quality is fantastic. I have a couple brooches I’ve picked up as well, but have yet to wear. So I’m now stalking several pieces, and deciding what piece I actually want to save up for. It’s just a beautiful line.

And that’s it for now. Stay cool y’all!

Until next time,
