Florals with Kate


Remember that time I said I was obsessed with midi skirts? Yup, that still holds true. The thing that I love even more though are inexpensive midi skirts. Like, super inexpensive midi skirts. Now lets be real: I've made a promise to myself to cut back on buying the cheaper 'trendier' items from places like F21 and H&M. However, if I can find a great deal - with keeping great quality - than I'm in!

Even more so, I love to pair thrifty items with more expensive pieces. In this case it is my less-than-$20 floral skirt with my Kate Spade cross body bag. This bag means more to me than just a great statement piece. It is my first KS purse and I couldn't be more in love with it! I snagged it at their store during a crazy sale they were having. This was after the Lilly at Target fiasco and we were down in the dumps. We decided to swing by the Outlets and landed upon a 40% off + an additional 25% sale at Kate Spade. Yes, I'll give you a moment to take that in. This bag was already reduced down so it was a major steal! I knew I couldn't say no and the lipstick color is perfect for Summer.

The skirt is from my go-to deal site Groopdealz. The name itself kills me but the site has great finds! I've gotten a ton of jewelry and clothing from there - and they haven't let me down yet quality wise. Shipping is also priced per item so you won't get smacked with huge costs for just getting one thing. Unfortunately the deals are timely so this one is already off the site, but they come out with new things daily.

This outfit was perfect for grabbing an early-morning coffee and scone from my favorite local coffee shop - Northside Social. I had a lavender lemon scone and it was freakin' delicious. Lydia had a nutella pop-tart, and it looks as good as it tasted.

Fun detail of this shoot: this wall is actually part of my favorite Mexican restaurant, Mexicali Blues. We also were lucky enough to have some sun peak through the clouds and somehow land magically near my head. Cue yellow hair, but you can't win them all!
