Sometimes Simple is Best

Whew - these past few days have been insanely busy for me!

If you follow me on instagram at all you'll know that one of my other "jobs" is that I am a baker/cake decorator. My sister and I have a small business together and, well - it's wedding season! Or more precisely, it's event season.

Wedding season also happens to be bridal shower and baby shower season. As well as a lot of first birthdays (just think it through for a minute, you'll get it). So on days like today when I'm out picking up items with suppliers, delivering cake orders to corporate events, as well as grocery shopping and taking the boys to and from school - simple is best.

I love these jeans, and I haven't worn them in a while - mostly because my legs were seriously enjoying the freedom that warm weather and spring was offering - but we're under a frost warning the night after next and it's been ever so slightly chilly the past couple of days.

This quilted, puff sleeve, marsala top is a stunner that I picked up over the winter - but the short sleeves make it very spring appropriate. And my scalloped edge flats had one last hurrah today - before I took them off and uncerimoniously chucked them in the bin since they've worn through on both soles.

This weekend is another super-busy cake weekend, but hopefully I'll have a chance to take a few outfit pics and be back on schedule for next week.
