Well hello there Monday, nice to see you again. It was brutally hot today, and I can’t seem to unwind. The last dregs of summer have arrived, and boy are they sticky!!

I pulled out an older Jillian dress today, a style I love for windy days, I don’t have to worry about “dress up” moments!!

  1. Dress: Kate Spade Jillian
  2. Shoes: Christian Louboutin
  3. Handbag: Kate Spade
  4. Necklace: Kate Spade

I ended up swapping out my shoes before I left the house, I wore pointy shoes on Sunday and my toes can only handle it for so many hours, especially in the middle of August when we have a heat wave that includes humidity! (Thank you inflammatory arthritis!)

Until next time,



Halfway through another very crazy busy week! Lots of macarons this week, coupled with my miscalculations, and I had a pile of these: 

 This was a small pile, I actually ended up with 14 dozen of these cracked half shells! However, I just match them up, fill them with whatever I have, and I offer them for half price in not-so-pretty packaging. And those 13 dozen became 7 dozen “macawrongs” that were snapped up within a couple of hours. Sigh. At least it hit me this afternoon what I did wrong! A simple miscalculation on one of the ingredients in the meringue. Proof that I am only human and often make ridiculous mistakes!

I did pull together a cute outfit yesterday (which I repeated for bible study this evening, with different shoes), for the morning. Afternoon was the first cross country meet and I changed into a bright orange dress with my new blue handbag, school colors! (And didn’t take a photo. OOPS) 


  1. Blouse: Forever21, but picked up at Goodwill for $2
  2. Skirt: Kate Spade
  3. Belt: secondhand (under $5)
  4. Shoes: Kate Spade
  5. Handbag: Kate Soade Quinn

And today: 


  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade
  2. Dress: Kate Spade Jillian
  3. Shoes: thrifted 

My single surprise sale purchase came, and I fully admit I do regret not purchasing the smaller Flamingo bag as well. However, the reality is I didn’t need either one, and this one is way more practical: 

 I love the size. I really wish my cat maise was this size too, it’s the perfect size! Now she needs a name. 

Until next time,
