Spring Dreaming with kate spade new york
Good morning, friends! It’s hard to believe it’s Wednesday already. It feels good to get back to a normal routine after our nice, long weekend.
I love the clean lines and ladylike silhouette of this purse. While I prefer to carry it as a satchel, it also comes with a removable shoulder strap for cross-body use. Like all of the cameron street styles, the babe comes in crosshatched leather so it’s lightweight and scratch-proof, and wipes clean. Gotta love that! There’s nothing worse than getting a permanent mark on a light colored bag.
This bag holds more than it looks like it would, so it’s a great bag to transition from day to night. I love that it’s dressy enough for dinner out but still holds enough to carry all day long.
It also comes in classic black and a vibrant pink punch, but I chose the more subdued pink sunset. I’m all about shades of pink this spring, so when this bag arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to style it.
FYI, the scarf is not included with the bag. I discovered it when I was shopping at the mall a few days after my new bag arrived, and I thought it would be the perfect compliment. I actually intended to wear it around my neck, but it interfered with the pretty scalloped neckline on this sweater, so I decided to tie it on my bag instead.
This scallop sweater is from the kate spade spring collection as well. I love the quality of the fabric and the feminine scalloped trim on the neckline and arms. It’s made of cashmere, silk, and cotton, and it feels divine. Unfortunately, I misjudged the sizing and requested a small. It works, but it would fit more comfortably in the medium. I’d recommend sizing up if you’re in between sizes.
While it’s a tad short with these jeans, I can totally see it with a skirt this spring. I’m always lamenting how hard it is to find shirts the right length for wearing with skirts, and this one is perfect.
No outfit is complete without a few well-placed accessories, and I’m a longtime fan of kate spade jewelry and watches. To complete the outfit and dress it up a bit, I added these lantern gems chandelier earrings and the lantern gems ring.
They also sent me this adorable smart watch. I didn’t even realize it was a smart watch when I added it to my wish list; I was drawn to the pretty vachetta leather strap, gold-tone case, and classic white dial decorated with champagne glasses and crystal bubbles. Come to find out, it does so much more than tell time and look cute on my wrist. It can track my activities and sleep, take selfies, receive call and text notifications, and much more. I’m still learning how to use it.
Finally, these black suede stacked heels bookend the outfit, and they make the perfect transition shoe for spring. Suede is no longer just for fall and winter. This spring and summer, suede sandals are everywhere. I love the combination of the suede upper with the patent leather heel.
In this outfit, I feel totally ready for whatever event spring throws at me. I can swap out the white jeans for a skirt if I need a dressier look, and then it would be perfect for spring graduation parties or bridal showers.
