LOVE these sandals from Kate Spade

I am a shoe stalker and am always on the lookout for fashion forward shoes that are comfortable and versatile.  This shoe is gorgeous and I love it in the black and white.  These are a fair price (and on sale).  They are very similar to some of the Chloe sandals. On Zappos Couture

Spring Tea

Every year I host a spring tea where I invite neighbors and friends old and new. I bake up a storm and get to enjoy seeing the people I love without my 3 yr old screaming in the background. Our house is still a construction zone (always a work in progress) but the tea must go on. Here are some photos from last year and I will post photos afterwards:

some wardrobe inspiration!

spring tea!

J Crew collection dress (no longer available)
Iris and Ink silk blouse (they just have the mint available but I love this color too)
jcrew collection top (this is really $$$ but I love the look)
j crew collection raffia pencil skirt
j crew collection skirt (no longer available)

this is the yellow dress above (I got this for $100 at J Crew in store on sale and made slight alterations)

Palm Springs and the best cover up you will own

Shortly I will be going to Palm Springs and I am very excited.  I love the whole desert experience.  This cover up below is a show stopper--I wore it in Napa and was asked by many women seeking tush and hip coverage like myself where I got it.  Answer: Last Call (for a fair price).  This looks amazing over any suit and covers up all my post-baby areas that I am not interested in flaunting poolside. Check out the whole look below: 

how to wear:

palm springs

Italian matte gold trim tank suit
chloe sunglasses
anya hindmarch tote
givenchy sandals (LOVE LOVE and the minute I find a cute knock off I will share!)

I am including this enormous photo to teleport myself here now! Parker Palm Springs is my favorite place in the desert!

Here are some of my favorite mules of the season. You get all the height of a heel with the comfort of a slip on.

Look for less options:

Drawstring slouchy pants..chic and easy to wear

Sometimes skinny jeans are not as appealing and when the weather heats up its nice to have a less fitted option.
