Weekend in Review

Well, I have survived. Barely. Day 4 has so far been the worst…..hoping tomorrow is better. My son started to feel it yesterday, it’s funny how I felt it INSTANTLY after the crash, and it took the kid about two days! I think he finally came off his adrenaline high of the whole “got rear ended, but still passed my driving test!” Sigh. Just happy that we have excellent Drs and my car isn’t that horrible (although one never knows once that bumper comes off!)

I did get dressed and leave the house yesterday…and I did out shoes on, but they were off by the time I took this photo:  

  1. T-Shirt: Kohls
  2. Skirt: Kate Spade (way old….maybe 6 years?)

I picked up the cutest sandals at the Ralph Lauren outlet: 

 Now I could have gotten just one pair, right? But they had them in black/silver, navy/gold and tan/gold in my size. With tax, $11. So yes, I bought 3 pairs. I figure I’m going to spend the majority of the summer in flats due to my back, and I don’t actually own many sandals….so there you go. My husband just laughed and rolled his eyes.

But they are comfortable…I wore the tan ones today: 





  1.  Dress: Kate Spade
  2. Belt: Kate Spade (Havana collection, 2014)
  3. Shoes: Ralph by Ralph Laureb in Tan

I had a handbag for church, but my husband carried it around all day.  I’m pretty stiff and sore and everything just HURTS today. Like pulling and tugging. Ugh. Seatbelts people, seatbelts!!(but I was about to get OUT of the car AND we were in park….)

Who knows what tomorrow will bring. Lots of hot and windy weather, and I see my Jillian summer weight cotton dresses making some serious appearances this week! Oh and lots of French Macarons. Oh boy!

Until next time,


Endless Summer

Seriously, it’s about 80 degrees out this evening! Crazy crazy weather!!!

Yesterday I wore this:




Cardigan: Target
Dress: Kate Spade Elza Dress
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Handbag: Kate Spade
Necklace: Kohls

Today I wore this:



Cardigan: Ralph Lauren
Dress: Kate Spade (recent eBay steal!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Handbag: Kate Spade
Necklace: Target

I also made these for a baby shower this afternoon:




Aren’t they the cutest?! She had originally ordered a cake, but I’m so happy that the order was changed, these are SO MUCH CUTER!!! All the little pieces are made from sugar. I was sad to leave them behind!!

Hope your weekend is going well! I still can’t believe this insanely beautiful weather we are having!!!! Endless Summer!

Until next time,


Saturday Musings

Today was an odd day. Lots of cleaning and errands. We took the kiddos out for dinner, they all voted to go to Panda Express (sigh), so off we went. I wore this:





Cardigan: Ralph Lauren (old)
Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Handbag: Kate Spade
Necklace: Target

I also cleaned my closet out today and prepped for tomorrow. I have one batch of macarons to make and then it’s time to stock my freezer with meals ready to be put in the oven! I used to do this every 2-3 months, but then lapsed, and it’s time to get back to it. The eternal question is my house is always “what’s for dinner?!”. Sigh. I miss the days of ordering in! But where we live the only delivery is pizza, and it’s hit or miss!

Don’t forget about my blog sale. 🙂 I have a pile of skirts to photograph too! If you see something, please feel free to make an offer, the prices listed do include shipping, and I’ll discount each additional item.

Until next time,

I have a fairly full plate over the next few days. Two enormous cakes, one incredibly detailed, cake balls, cookies, should be fun! I’m shaping rice crispy treats this morning for one of the cakes. Super excited about it!

Hope your week is going well.

Until next time,
