I Bought Myself A Present!

Monday, July 3, 2017

I absolutely have to unsubscribe from the Kate Spade email newsletter! Every time they announce a surprise sale I feel compelled to check it out and see what they have discounted. Big mistake! Every single time I end up convincing myself to buy something!

If you want a discounted Kate Spade, and can't make it over to an Outlet, the surprise sales are indeed the way to go! I got this adorable bag for about $100 off. (See why I talked myself into it?!)

Kate Spade calls this color Adventure Blue. I LOVE it. It's got spring and summer written all over it, and it's a great way to add a pop of color to any outfit. The sweet bow on the front adds a little special something too. 

I also finally grabbed this top from J Crew Factory, as soon as it was restocked in my size. Looks like it's sold out again, in everything but xxsmall. It's easy to see why it's been selling out though. I love an easy summer top that I can just throw on over shorts in this Florida heat. 

Leave a comment below if you're just as excited as I am about hydrangea season! Have you bought yourself a present recently? Are you good about unsubscribing from tempting emails?!
