I Heart Kate Spade

I never thought I would become such a fan of Kate Spade, but how can I resist the collections of girly, shapely, perfectly stylish, well constructed and always going on sale dresses that Kate Spade has been releasing.  I really appreciate the tailoring and the details and know that I'll be wearing these pieces for a long time.  As I've said before, I see no need for my work clothes to be boring and plain.  For me, my outfit is an extension of myself, and I feel much more confident when I'm put together.  Absurdly, I actually feel stressed if I'm not.

Pretty Tiled Topshop Co-ord

Happy Summer!

One of my most favorite fashion trends, as you may have noticed, has been the crop top and the midi skirt.  You can imagine my excitement when I found this colorful, yet chic, coordinated look at Topshop (and for only $138!).  I love the repeating tile pattern anchored by the aubergine border.  I made the skirt appropriate for work by wearing it with a solid colored top, and then changed into the crop top for dinner at Tar & Roses (a must try if you live or are visiting LA).  And with the warm nights we've been having, I didn't even need a coverup.

Oh, how much I love summer in SoCal.
