Now that our son is four, I’m looking forward to a very busy summer. We can finally hit the large resort parks without worrying about whether or not Dominic is going to have fun because we know he’s at that perfect age where he can run around and just enjoy himself. Now, I just have to think of my own comfort while chasing our crazy little boy, and these shoes by Dansko are going to be the perfect solution. I originally thought that Dansko just made professional shoes worn in the healthcare industry, but I’ve come to realize that they have an entire of line of women’s shoes including stylish clogs, flat and heeled sandals, sporty shoes and boots. I have been living in these Jovie sandals from their Vista Collection these last two weekends, so I know that they will definitely allow me to keep up with my son (and sometimes my niece) in style and comfort. I’ve been wearing them with shorts and jeans, but I found that because of the pewter color, they go great with dresses of any length.

A couple of weekends ago, my family and I attended an 80th birthday party for another great-aunt, Remedios Posadas Madrid (my cousin Regi’s mother). It was a semi-formal daytime event at a beautiful location: The Skyline Room at the Admiral Kidd Catering and Conference Center. I kept my look very simple by wearing a lace babydoll dress, a light blazer and printed clutch. Although I wore all black, I made sure that the blacks had texture: my tights had a different pattern than my dress, and my shoes were velvet with glitter. I’m glad I kept it simple, because I wanted to make sure that my fantastic clutch really stood out. I included a couple of other pictures: one with my handsome hubby and one of our son. We had a great time at this lunchtime affair, especially with that gorgeous San Diego skyline in view.

Now that I have been blogging for two years, I’ve come to know several bloggers, some who appear in my blog roll. A few of these bloggers have forged businesses, and I try to support them when I can. One of my favorite bloggers, Rocquelle of Consider Me Lovely, has a wonderful Etsy shop called Clutched & Covered. I love the idea of refreshing the clutch purses you have in your closet and extending their versatility with covers! I decided to cover my American Apparel clutch because it was the most plain (here is an example of how it looks from a previous outfit posts here and here). Rocquelle has so many cute styles in her Etsy shop, but I finally settled on purchasing the leopard print. Not only is it beautifully made and fit my American Apparel clutch perfectly, but I discovered that it also fit a new clutch that I just got from The Limited! I love how the orange of the envelope flap just pops against the leopard print. I also adore the beautiful thank you note from Rocquelle (and yes my dear, I will be rocking this cover at the next concert I attend!). I actually styled this cover with an outfit that I wore to a party, and I will post that outfit soon. If you want to revamp the clutches in your closet and give them some new life, why not pay Clutched & Covered a visit!
