Monday, AGAIN?!

Oh Monday, we meet once again. Our weather is changing (AGAIN!), and as such the winds picked up immensely. So today was a two-outfit kind of day (I secretly love it…I would love to change 3-4 times a day! I know.)

I started in this: 

    
    
 

  1. Dress: Kate Spade
  2. Belt: Anthropologie
  3. Shoes: Kate Spade
  4. Necklace: Kohls

And I changed into this, which I chose as it’s our school colors and tonight was the team meeting for fall sports!  

    
    
 

  1. Dress: Kate Spade
  2. Shoes: Christian Louboutin
  3. Handbag: Eugene (by Kate Spade of course)

Yes, I took Eugene tonight, and the best part? My husband ended up with him! My husband is the best at that, always carrying around my stuff. I think he secretly has as much fun with the snail as I did.

Did you know I’m having a blog sale? Proceeds will go to charity. Blog Sale I also have some items listed elsewhere, but the pricing is the same across the board. I recently donated a huge pile of clothing, but decided to keep a few things to sell and donate the proceeds to a worthy cause, Skip1, who builds kitchens and feeds people all over the world. I met Shelene a few weeks back and she really touched me. I have excess…time to spread it around just a bit!

Until next time,

Sunday Musings

As the sun has set on today, on this weekend, a bit of a recap. It’s been insane the past few days, and now that it’s over, I’m exhausted!! 

Monday I wore this: 

     

  1. Dress: Milly
  2. Belt: JCrew
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Tuesday I did not snap a photo (whoops), but here’s Wednesday’s ensemble: 

       

  1. Dress: Kate Spade
  2. Belt: Kate Spade
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin

And now for my fashion “faux pas” for the week. I wore the same dress both Thursday AND Friday morning. Because of these POCKETS! (I was running around both days doing prep work for a huge church event….those pockets were a lifesaver!) 

       

  1. Dress: Kate Spade
  2. Belt: Kate Spade
  3. Shoes: Jimmy Choo

Friday night was the big event, and while I had a pretty awesome outfit on to match the theme, I did not have the time to stop and snap a photo. I didn’t even get a photo with the speaker at the event! (And I spent a lot of time with her!!) But here’s a few (fuzzy) shots of some of the event….it was a 20’s theme, “Puttin on the Ritz” 

                     

Me at about 2pm on Friday…at this point I’d probably put in about 40-50 hours for the whole week (and expected another 12 to go!) 

 

We survived. The event was fantastic, and the speaker really moved me. Shelene Bryan. You. Must. Look. Her. Up. Her Organization is Skip1 and the idea is to “skip” something “extra” and donate that money to help feed a hungry child, build a kitchen, or just bless someone somewhere in the world. She wrote a book too, and I admit I cane him Friday night after cleanup and read the entire book before I went to sleep!!!! I’m very inspired, and being as she is local to me (Within 2 hours anyway), I may just jump in somewhere with them! I’m already planning to skip things. Look her up. She’s just amazing, and she’s just even more amazing in person!

Yesterday I worked on a cake for a birthday party today. Hello Kitty Mermaid: 

           

Isn’t it gorgeous?! I can’t take credit for all the paper craft, just the desserts! Party was a huge success.

And finally, I wore this today: 

    

  1. Dress: Kate Spade
  2. Belt: secondhand
  3. Shoes: Kate Spade

And yesterday the character bags got a new baby sister: 

She just needs a name! I need to rest up a bit from the past week and this weekend before I consider anything. I’m so tired she would end up with a really awful name!! Hope your weekend was fabulous!

Until next time,

Jules
