Yesterday was my daughter’s birthday: 

And today I had to go to LA, so we did our yearly track to American Girl for our mother-daughter birthday lunch: 






We visited Kate Spade in Pasadena,  

 (hello fall 2015!!! I left it behind, it’s adorable, but I have my eye on some pieces later in the year!)

And Sugarfina in Beverly Hills AND Pasadena: 





The Pasadena store is such a hidden treasure! I love that it’s tucked away, and also right by Kate Spade!!

I got into some trouble later….I am really REALLY loving SJP shoes! So well made and the arch is PERFECT for my bony bumpy ex-ice skaters feet! 


Le sigh. Yes they came home. Under $60, who could say no?! Quick, someone take away my Visa card!

The Paper Bag Princess….my favorite find of the day. Right at Robertson & Olympic in Los Angeles, it’s a unique collection is amazing treasures! The hats! The jewels! The vintage couture Chanel! It’s my new “must see” recommendation for a trip to LA! The costume jewels alone, wowzers! It’s such a gorgeously curated collection too. I did not take any photos, merely enjoyed the beauty of the treasures. Their website for more information. 

Until next time,



Not only are their spots on my dress, I have been struggling with a horrid migraine since yesterday, resulting in seeing spots. But I still hauled myself up this morning and made an attempt at pulling it together (hey, yall can’t see my hair!!):

  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade
  2. Dress: Kate Spade
  3. Shoes: Jimmy Choo Light Siam Strass

Yesterday I was in Hollywood all day, and while I didn’t get a full outfit shot, here’s my feet (and I wore a green cardigan):

I also hit the Century City Kate Spade store, and tried on a couple of the new spring dresses:

I fell in LOVE with with the green striped dress. It fits true to size (I tried on a 0, and it was large in the waist), but raising both arms was VERY difficult. But when I went to take it off?! IT WAS A WAR!!!! The dress has a side zipper, and with those sleeves, forget it. This is one that will not be added to my collection. However, the floral one? I was in LOVE. And then realized NO POCKETS! Super bummer!! I tried it in my normal dress size, 00, and it fit beautifully. However I will wait for it to go on major sale, due to lack of pockets. The spring accessories are simply adorable, as are the character handbags. I have to say though, I am not as excited about spring 2015 as I was for spring 2014, which I am sure my husband is thrilled about!

However, I did not walk out empty handed from Sugarfina:

I love that store. It’s like a grown up magic candy store!!! It is a MUST VISIT for anyone coming out to Los Angeles. Put it on your list! Champagne Bears & Peach Bellini Hearts are just divine!!

Until next time,


Week in Review

It’s been a wild week! It seems everytime my kiddos go on break and end up with my parents, I end up being busier than normal. Still trying to figure that one out!

Anyway, I have a few outfit snaps from this past week, although I’ve been repeating a lot of outfits merely for convenience.

Like this, I wore my Hattie dress twice this past week (same shoes & cardigan both times. So original I know!)




Cardigan: I.N.C., purchased at It’s a Wrap in Hollywood
Dress: Kate Spade Hattie dress
Shoes: Kate Spade

Monday I really had an adventure, and wore this (ice skating, a couple hours at Disneyland, being a chauffeur)



Cardigan: Ross
Dress: Kate Spade Laundry Dress (some of the outlets still have this one)
Belt: Anthropologie
Shoes: Strassed Christian Louboutin

Thursday I spent the day in LA, and while I didn’t snap photos of what o had on (it was still dark out when I left), this is what I wore:


(Only photo I could find!!)
Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Strassed Jimmy Choo Flats
Handbag: Kate Spade

Yesterday I wore a new dress I picked up at Nordstrom Rack Thursday, I went a size up, because the length was 2″ longer. So it has more of a boho vibe I suppose. So cute, and I love that it has pockets!!




Cardigan: Target
Dress: French Connection
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Strassed flats

I also wore this one day this past week:




Dress: Kate Spade
Shoes: Strassed Jimmy Choo flats

Halloween time at Disneyland:




Ate my weight in eggs & bacon:


And finished off with a green smoothie:

Until next time,
