I’ve teamed up with the lovely ladies of Kate Spade at Scottsdale Fashion Square to showcase some of the new spring goodies and to host a fun little spring soiree Saturday, May 9 from 11-1. Over the next three days I will be showcasing some of my favorite frocks, handbags, and accessories that fit a variety of life’s occasions. Any of the items featured would be the perfect thing to pick up as a last minute Mother’s Day gift or just to treat yourself or someone you love! First up is this mod inspired black and white striped cotton dress.
Ladies, this is the kind of dress made for warm spring and summer days spent running errands, heading to the park with the kiddos, riding a bike to your local farmers market, or attending an outdoor concert. The style is a simple fit and flare with a little less structure than your typical nine-to-five dress. The fitted torso and drawstring waist detail add some shape and femininity while the breezy, loose skirt keeps things from being too serious or formal.
The dress’ black and white color palette is the perfect backdrop for colorful accessories, but for those days you need to throw something on or the temperature does not provide for extra layers, the dress’ print is strong enough to stand on its own. Here, I paired the look with a cheeky clutch, striped watch that echoes the sporty, laid back vibe of the dress, quirky ring and a pair of embellished sandals. The goal with this look was to create something that was high on style but still comfortable enough to wear throughout a warm, sunny day.
If you are out shopping on Saturday stop on by Kate Spade at Scottsdale Fashion Square from 11-1 to sip, nibble, mingle, and shop! Friday and Saturday only, every customer who spends $250 on regular priced items will receive a $50 gift card. I will be on hand to offer some styling tips and share my favorite new arrivals.
Oh, and girls, to further sweeten your Saturday, and Mother’s Day weekend, Kate Spade is generously giving away an Emerson Place Hayden handbag in Clay (retail value $478) to one lucky lady.
