I am officially OBSESSED with this winking clutch by Kate Spade. It’s cheeky, whimsical and yet somehow still classic- perfection! Kate Spade seems to have mastered this quirky/timeless combination wonderfully (for evidence, just peek the rest of her clutch collection here).
Just a few random snapshots of things that are making me happy these days; A new Kate Spade tote (swoon) and the softest infinity scarf from J.Crew + cute little jars full of honey delicious enough to make Winnie the Pooh spiral into a honey-induced coma* (from the Plaza room service). Now it’s off to an annual Festivus party- time to air all your grievances!
*that guy always has his head in a honey pot…definitely needs to be some sort of Honey Addicts Anonymous for him in those Hundred Acre Woods…;)
After dropping off Melissa at the airport to embark on her Roman adventure, the roommie and I decided to stick around Boston for an impromptu stroll around the city. We ended up walking up and down Newbury street and doing some fantastic bargain hunting. I fell hopelessly in love with this “brushstroke” clutch at Kate Spade, but alas had to grit my teeth, take a deep breath and walk on by its high price tag. Instead, I scoured a few basement blowout sales and came home with a Free People shirt AND dress for $50, and an adorable top from Zara that cost me a mere $20. Cha-chiiiing! Here’s a peek at the Zara find:
I’m pretty in love with this shirt It’s got a very ‘now’ peplum silhouette, and the sheerness of the lace and be turned up or toned down by implementing different undergarments for various occasions. I’m already picturing it with faded red cropped jeans and boots for day and a tight, black knee-length pencil skirt and pumps for night. Can’t wait to bust it out!
just a few beach-inspired items from the interwebs I’m currently lusting over…
- Isabel Marant ‘Merry’ leather sandals
- Current/Elliott ‘Boyfriend’ printed denim shorts
- Current/Elliott ‘Boyfriend’ distressed denim shorts
- Audrina Patridge’s unidentified floral bikini. and her beach bod. yup.
- Anthropologie rain-dotted anorak
- J.Crew featherweight cotton colorblock cardigan
- Tori Praver ‘Dusty’ ruched bikini bottoms
- kate spade ‘all in a day’s work’ iphone 4 case
- Mulberry leather strawberry keyring
- Alexander McQueen ‘De Manta’ leather clutch
Okay, so I know I said I would stop with all of the birthday posts, especially since I turned 20 over a week ago. But that was before my cousin Melissa gave me this adorable Kate Spade cuff! I mean come on, the cute engravings…the colorful packaging…do you really expect me to not obsess over this? With thoughtful little phrases like “partners in crime” and “sidekicks” engraved around the outside, this shiny gold bracelet serves as a perfect reminder of the fact that Melissa and I will have each other’s backs no matter what. Since the days of the “dynamic duo”, she has always been my very best friend, and there’s nothing that will ever change that. I’m so lucky to have such an insanely cool and beautiful cousin/bestie. Love much, Meliss! :)
