Scenes From Our Weekend + Christian Louboutins for Sale

Jul 16, 2012

Monday, Monday why do you always sneak up on me so fast??

We had a great weekend.  Best part is my in-laws kept Sterling over night Saturday so Matt and I could enjoy a date night.  I can’t remember the last time just the two of us went out to dinner alone, usually we have friends with us.  It was nice to chat and have some alone time.  We really need to make an effort to do date night more often.

Here is what I wore for our date night:

{Gypsy 05 Maxi Dress}

Matt says this is his favorite dress that I own so I thought I would make him happy and rock it.  Truth be told I own 3 of these GYPSY 05 Dresses.  They are a great Summer dress that you can dress up or down.  I wear mine all the time.  I don’t know if they still make this particular design because I bought mine several years ago but they come in tons of great solid colors and they are only $100. 

I especially love this Royal Blue Color.

I came up with a pretty genius drink idea.  I freeze ice cubes with fruit in them and then put that in my vodka drink so it flavors the drink as it melts.  My two favorites so far are orange and cucumber. 

This weekend I used the orange ice cubes in a drink with vodka + fresh lemon juice.  It was quite refreshing and tasty.  Make some flavored ice cubes you won’t regret it.  They are also great in water, Sterling loves them in his.   I think he feels like he is getting a treat!

I also came up with a pretty amazing chopped salad with all my Farmers Market Goodies from Saturday. 

Julienned Spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, orange bell pepper, cannelini Beans, kalamata olives and fresh feta.  Chop all, toss, and mix with olive oil, red wine vinegar and lemon juice for Vinaigrette.  Serve with pita chips.  I think next time I might even add some corn in.

Enjoyed alot of quality time with this gorgeous face.  To appease Matt I finally dressed him like a little boy.  Matt hates all the jon-jons and smocked clothes I put him in, so this weekend we rocked a JCrew tee and shorts.  I actually thought he looked pretty cute in it!

And how adorable is he in his new Pixie Lily Pj’s?  I almost died when I put these on him they were so cute! And yes,  I know what you are thinking because several friends commented that he looks like Mason Disick in these pjs.  But trust me we cut Sterling’s hair, he does not have a mullet like Mason!

I have a very good friend who is selling her Christian Louboutin Rolando Pumps.  They have been worn only once and are in mint condition.  They retail for $745 and she wants $375.  They are a European size 38.5, which is a US size 8. 
This is truly a steal ladies.  If they were my size I would buy them in a skinny minute.  Email me at nataliemason24@yahoo.com if you are interested.  First picture is a stock photo next 4 are actual pictures of the shoes.  The shoes come with the original bag and heel replacements.

I would not sell just anything on my blog for a friend but these are such classic shoes and such a great deal I had to share.  And if you need one more reason to buy them look at Posh rocking the wine colored CL Rolandos.  They look freaking amazing.  Every girl wants to have a pair of red soled shoes in her closet!
