Kate Spade: Current Favorites

Hello, World!

Kate Spade has some seriously cute items right now! I’m such a sucker for anything Kate Spade, but I rarely splurge on her merchandise for myself. So, right now I’ve rounded up the items I’m currently coveting, and wanted to share them.

Pink Bow Dress | Twill Trench | Black and White Bow Tote | Bow Heel | Floral Wallet | Knot Bangle | Pearl Cuff | Pink Bucket Bag

If I could buy it all, I would, but if I had to choose one thing, it’d definitely be the twill trench. I’ve always wanted a good trench, but have trouble finding one. This trench is feminine and flirty while also being practical and warm. So cute!

What are your current Kate Spade favorites?

Polka Dot Vibes

Hello, World.

I head back to school on Sunday, and I am in no way ready. Between trying to pack, finishing the reading I need to get done for my thesis, and trying to set up LSAT studying for the school year, I feel like this year is already stressful and it hasn’t even started yet. I’d typically have two more weeks to finish this stuff, but I have to go back to school early for RA training. Anyway, in light of my major stress, I figure I’d distract myself with an outfit post.

I bought this LC Lauren Conrad dress while shopping for my twenty-first birthday. I originally was going to wear it on my Napa trip, but ended up buying some dresses that were a little younger and more…festive. However, I plan to wear this dress regularly, as it’s super comfortable! Also, I asked for gold Jack Rogers for my brithday, and I got them, but Nordstrom sent me the wrong size, so I had to exchange them. Now that I have them, though, it was worth the wait. They’re quickly becoming my favorite sandals, and I’m so excited to style them for the end of this season (and next Spring).

I’m so excited to wear dresses more frequently this season. I feel like dresses make for such easy outfits, and are cooler than shorts in the summer (especially when the temperatures are in triple digits).

What are you wearing to beat the heat?

Purchase your fall statement bag NOW, and don’t miss the great prices that only come around every once in a while.

The Best Decade of Your Life

Hello, World.

Next Friday is my birthday. My 20th birthday. This means I’m leaving those pesky teen years behind, and moving in to what I imagine will be the best decade of my life. It’s a weird transition really, because every young woman entering her twenties says something similar to what I just wrote: “the best decade of my life.” It seems like a lot of pressure to put on a few unpredictable years. If you know me at all, you know I absolutely hate being disappointed or disappointing those I care about. So, instead of demanding my twenties to be the best, I’m going to hope they are, and enjoy whatever comes my way: the good and the bad. It should be an interesting experiment (trying to enjoy all aspects of the decade) since I usually plan and plan and plan. I guess I can still have a plan, but if life throws me a few challenges, I want to make the best of the situation.

So, you know what typically happens on peoples birthday? They receive gifts. Not to sound like some spoiled girl, but I love gifts. I like giving gifts way more than receiving gifts, but alas, I also make a little wish list for my birthday because I can. Note: this wish list took me forever. I’m what I would typically call an investment shopper, and a bit of an investment gift receiver. I really only ask for one or two big items that I can cherish for years. Here’s what I’m asking for this year:

6dbeb65f3c8a07fa5ecfe5e45216a443
Kate Spade bow earrings | SO cute. I have the bow ring, and I wear it everyday. I love bows, and I adore the bow earrings. So dainty, and so gold!

Jack Rogers sandals | I recently discovered Jack Rogers. Four months ago, I had no idea what they were. But, after following The College Prepster, The Blonde Prep, and BelloftheBall45, I started noticing their popularity. They are so classic, and I like how they seem to go with everything. They’re also the perfect blend of dressy and casual.

Kate Spade Cross Body Bag | With fall coming up, I’m loving anything this beautiful color. Honestly, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale has me so pumped for fall. I adore the rich colors of fall, and I love the bundled looks that accompany the chilly season!

L.L. Bean Boots | So, I feel like these boots get a lot of mixed reviews. Some people think they’re awesome, others think they are completely hideous duck-like things. I’m on team “love it.” I think they’re so cute, especially with a pair of skinny jeans tucked in and a J.Crew camp sock. Perfection.

Burberry Classic Scarf | My friend recently gifted me the black version of this scarf, and it is literally one of the softest things I’ve ever owned. I love the classic color palette of this scarf, and I hope to add it to my wardrobe one day. When I was a freshman in high school my family went to New York, and in lieu of presents, my parents gave us a sum of money to buy gifts for ourselves in NYC. I planned to buy this scarf, but once I got to the city and saw the price tag, I just giggled and moved on. Needless to say, I’d accept this as a gift, but don’t really see myself heading to the next Burberry store I see and purchasing it for myself.

Barnes and Noble & Starbucks Giftcard | Always.

Kate Spade Phone Cover | Kate Spade phone cases are my favorite. They are light weight, always bright, and just all around cheerful!

Lilly Pulitzer Agenda | I love organization, and I love the cute little doodles that fill this agenda. Lilly makes an amazing agenda that’s a great size, has plenty of room, and has a great layout.

Anchor rope bracelet | The KJP line of anchor bracelets is basically perfection as far as preppy, classic jewelry goes. I absolutely love his work! He even made a Blair Waldorf bow bracelet that I’m coveting. This rope bracelet, however, is such a staple!

A 50mm lens for my Canon | I’m really trying to work on my photography skills. I learned during the A Beautiful Mess e-course I took that the trick to great photography isn’t necessarily the camera, it’s more about the lens. Sarah Rhodes, the photographer for ABM recommended this lens for the type of photography I typically do.

Vineyard Vines long sleeved tee | Vineyard Vines is another company I recently discovered, and I’ve loved this tee ever since. It’s absolutely adorable. I need more simple tees in my wardrobe. I don’t have many tees that are not just random t-shirts I’ve acquired over the years. 

These are just items I’d like to obtain one day, but also items I probably wouldn’t just go buy for myself. When’s your birthday?

Truly,
Callie leigh

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2014

Hello, World.

Yesterday marked the beginning of the 2014 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which means that tons of amazing brands are currently on sale! Yesterday I went shopping at Nordstrom to get some new ballet flats for work, and I was blown away by all the amazing prices on big ticket items. You should definitely check out the sale! If you are going to do some shopping, make sure you move fast. Items go super quickly, like the Tory Burch riding ‘Eloise’ boots that sold out on the very first day. Despite that great deal being gone, there are plenty of other items that are equally amazing being offered until August 3rd! Here are a few of my favorites:

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is great for buying some back to school clothes, work attire for a new job, staple fall clothing at a better price, or investment shoes and handbags. I’m a huge fan of this sale because you can get really quality items for prices that only come around once or twice a year. There are so many great brands that will last you a long time. So, head over to your Nordstrom store or hit the website to see all the great offers! Sale ends August 3rd.

Get In My Closet

Hello, World. 

I can’t believe it’s almost July! Summer feels like it’s going by slowly, but then I realize I only have about a month and a half left. I realize that’s still quite a lot of time, but still. I like summer! Anyway, I wanted to share some items I’m currently loving that are SO summery.

scarf // wristlet wallet // phone case // white tote // glasses // necklace // bright lipstick // vegan leather weekender

I’m kind of obsessed with scarves. It’s a bit of a problem, but I also really love floral, and this scarf is just perfect for cool summer nights. I’ve been looking for a great new wallet for a while, and this pink one is just so simply and I love that you can wear it on your wrist. In my opinion, summer is all about bright and clean colors, which is why I love bright pinks and whites. A white tote goes with everything, and this one from Kate Spade had such a cute floral detail. Statement necklaces are a must in any season, and Baublebar always has a great selection. I love bright lipsticks, which is funny because I used to never wear anything on my lips. I didn’t like the idea, and I felt like my lips were too small, but now I just love bright colors. If you’re doing a lot of traveling this summer, a good, sturdy weekender is a great thing to have. I practically live out of an overnight bag with all the back and forth between my family’s cabin, home, and visiting friends. What are you currently coveting?

Easter Sunday

Hello, World.

Happy Easter! I spent the day with my amazing family, hunting eggs, watching the kiddos swim, and playing in the yard. I found the money egg during our hunt, which landed me a handsome amount of money! The Easter Bunny was super nice to me this year, as I got a Kate Spade bow ring and Kate Spade earrings! I love anything Kate Spade. When I was younger, I wanted anything Juicy Couture, and now my “grown-up” favorite fun, girly designer is Kate Spade.
