I fell in love with this Kate Spade dress a few months ago.  It’s just beautiful with its fit and flare silhouette and bateau neckline. 

PSX_20150707_124855The cut is perfect and it fits true to size and is made of a breathable cotton fabric with just enough silk to give it weight and shine.



It does come with a bit of a hefty price tag so I decided to wait until it either went on sale or I could find something similar.


Typically, if I find something I like but cannot splurge, I search for similar items on Google to see if I can get the same look for less.


This usually yields great results and I’m able to find something similar to what I am seeking at a much more reasonable price.


Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case with this dress.  It was only available as a Kate Spade and with Kate Spade prices.  I decided to wait until the dress went on sale (fingers nimbly crossed that it would) and checked the Kate Spade site weekly.


Finally, it did make the sale page and was an additional 25% off also!  What a steal!


The dress is still on sale actually but unfortunately is only available in size 00.  If you LOVE the dress as much as I but wear a different size than the one offered on the Kate Spade site, you can purchase it at alternate websites also. 



The prices on these sites aren’t discounted but if you’re willing to splurge, you can buy it using the link I’ve provided at the end of the post.

Hope you’re having a great week!

A charming lemon themed necklace and bracelet….from Charming Charlie on Cortneybre!

Hello everyone!  I’ve not blogged in a while as I needed to take a little “me” time to bring myself back together. 

Sometimes you need to just take a break from everything to figure out what really matters! 

Regardless, I’m back and featuring a wonderful and “charming” necklace and bracelet set from Charming Charlie! 

I am constantly on the lookout for bright and whimsical items with just a little bit of cheek! 


I fell in love with this set with its bright colors and fun designs!  The little sparkly pineapple accents are too fun!

I paired my accessories with a simple look – yellow skirt and white cotton blouse. 


I also added a punch of color with my green Louenhide bag!  I was very lucky to have snatched up a cute scarf in the frenzy that was LillyGate (Lilly Pulitzer for Target) and thought it added a really cute vibe to the bag. 


I simply folded the scarf and wrapped it around one of the handles. 

I then tied off each end and voila’  – instant interest!


Hope you’re having a great Monday!
