So my first encounter with blogger Sarah of La Jeune Marie could have gone one of two ways. Either she would think I was nutty and try to block me from her site or we would become great friends. I'm so happy that it's turned out to be the latter. You see when I first stumbled upon her blog I became an obsessed women. I read it from the very beginning to current day and was absolutely smitten by her. She was gorgeous, stylish, sweet, smart and Southern! I knew I had to become friends with this gal. So of course like any impulsive person with a crush I emailed her right away and told her how stunning, amazing, funny, etc I thought she was and how I really enjoyed her blog. I'm happy that I restrained myself by not telling her I would totally be her for Halloween. :) She emailed me back I very sweet email telling me that I wasn't scary at all and she really appreciated a little note telling her that I found her blog inspiring. Alas a friendship is born!

If you haven't already checked out La Jeune Marie yet you must then clear your morning and settle in for a good read. Sarah is currently living in Austin, TX and her blog followed her bridal preparations, the wedding and now her life as a newly wed and everything that goes along with it. It also includes Sarah's fabulous sense of style and ability to make amazing outfits from Forever 21 with some Jimmy Choo'sof course. Recently Sarah has started off on a new adventure as a wedding planner/interior decorator. It's given her an avenue to use all of her creative energy and and as her readers we get to join in on the ride and see her thought process.

So sit back, relax and enjoy reading about a typical weekend for Sarah. It starts off with a yummy brunch and ends with a good glass of wine and magazine. Ah whatelse could a girl want?

Mid Morning Derek and I have our Saturday brunch. Typically this consist of migas, Mexican Coke and other fun treats. Were not big breakfast eaters during the week, so on the weekends we like to spoil ourselves!

Around 1pm or so we decide to go furniture shopping for our master bedroom. I spot this cute little set up at the first store and have to take a photo. Everything is designer and way out of our price range so we decide to move on to our next stop.

We pop into Crate & Barrel and decide on a bed after much deliberation (were conflicted between the classic Colette and the modern Archer). Coin toss ensues. It's the Archer in pewter and we can't wait for it's arrival. I start talking about new bedding and Derek starts to have a panic attack. I ease his fears by saying I think I saw a duvet at Target that I liked and he starts breathing again (close one!). By this time I am STARVING but we still have one more stop on our list of errands.

After a recent trip to Houston where I picked up this gorgeous vintage dress and took it home in hopes my atelier could rework the fit a bit for me, I finally made it to the dress shop to see what could be done. Doesn't it remind you of the one in my Camilla Belle post!? And it looks perfect with a pair of gold Jimmy Choo's!! Anyways, we stop by the shop for a consult and the dress maker gives the thumbs up! Can't wait to wear this gorgeous frock!!

Head to the grocery store before getting back to the house, just need eggs and half & half for a quiche recipe but leave the store with wine, new dish towels, green tea, a magazine and oh yeah... eggs and half & half. (I ALWAYS manage to get extra stuff at the store, it's like crack!!)

It's around 10pm and I decide to get a work out in. Bust out the yoga mat and weights for 20 minutes of 30 Day Shred with Jillian Micheals. This is followed by cussing out Jillian and whimpering through the whole thing - this is hard!!

Reward myself with a glass of wine and new issue of Southern living. DYING to try that peach dessert recipe... Looks like were going to need to plan for some more work outs!

After wine and a little T.V. we wind down into bed. I catch up on all my blog stalking and answer some emails... then I spend some "quality time" with the hubby followed by nothing but sweet dreams! All and all an extremely productive Saturday at Chateau Jeune Marie, but you want to know about the shoes right? Well I could totally lie and say I spent the day in a pair of sky high Louboutin's, but between you and me... I spent the day in these flirty flats.

Thank you Camila for inviting me to share a typical Saturday with you, I admire your blog greatly and am so excited to have dropped by. Thank you for having me! Merci!!

Camila, this just has to be the best series ever. I've mentioned before how much fun it is to read-your collaborations with other bloggers.

It was a thrill to see Sarah featured today! She's a doll and undoubtedly a great person to see "In Her Shoes".

Thanks for a great send off for the weekend. Enjoy yours!
