I'm back + kate spade surprise sale





Sunnies: Oakley (option) | Top: J Crew Factory (option, option)  | Bracelets: Tasha (option), Express | Bag: Kate Spade (budget option) | Bottoms: Express | Wedges: Kate Spade (option, splurge option)

First, to explain my title - today is the first day I am back in heels, well, wedges. You see, I was not exaggerating when I said the walk was painful. My feet are finally feeling back to their normal self, and I was not only excited that they fit in something other than flat, thong sandals, but I was super happy to get my height back! I loved my outfits last week, but sadly those photos were taken pre-walk, so when it came time to actually wear them in real life, I either had to alter them or simply wear something different because of my foot situation. I finally feel myself again now that I can fully appreciate my shoe collection. Whew!

Second, I'm sorry for teasing you with wedges that aren't available anymore. My bad. But, gosh, you can see why I fell in love with them, and I'm certainly glad I snatched them up last year because it's basically impossible to find anything similar. However, can I offer you a consolation prize? The kate spade surprise sale happening right NOW is themed around travel, but there are lots of gingham goodies (totecrossbody, pouch, wallet) to satiate your craving for this print! Below are some of my personal favorites. Have you scored anything from the sale?

  1. Adoable look! Love the Kate Spade bag! I have a broken toe that's just healing up now, so I can't wait to wear heels again (though I too will cheat for blog pics!)

  4. Darn you. Now I want those pants. But it's been too warm for pants so I really don't need them. Phew. Glad you were able to get back into heels today! My feet hurt just thinking about your walkathon post!!

    1. I love the pants, but for some reason these run bigger than my others. It could use a good wash AND dry in the dryer, vs me hang drying them like the rest. I felt like I had saggy butt by the end of the day! But otherwise, the color is great, and they're extra comfy!

    1. Thanks - I reach for it often! It holds a lot considering how petite in size it is!

  13. I love the colors and the sparkle in your top. This is my kind of outfit! I love something sparkly and bright :) Thanks for linking a budget friendly option for the Kate Spade bag. I literally saw it in one of the first pictures and thought, "I need a bag like that." Then I scrolled to the next pic and saw it was Kate Spade and thought, "Oh, darn. Too expensive." She makes some gorgeous stuff, but I'm not willing to pay the designer price at this moment.

    I found you through the Pleated Poppy WIWW link up.
