Holiday Gift Guide – Kate Spade Edition

kate spadeIt’s Kate Spade shopping guide day (Alex said I could)! As an added bonus, today www.katespade.com is offering 30% off (code: SHINE). OMG. Just try and do yourself a favor and limit yourself to one gift for yourself…

 #1 Most Kate Spade items come with cute postcards that say “she is quick and curious and playful and strong”. I have one on my refrigerator. This 2016 17-month large agenda has that saying on the front, with Kate Spade details inside like gold foil dots.

 #2 The pave bridesmaid idiom bangle doesn’t have to be a bridesmaid gift. It actually just says girly friendship stuff, so it could be for any friend. I love it in rose gold!

#3 They used to have the keds for kate spade new York glitter sneakers in rose gold, and I’m sad I didn’t snap them up. Still, they are adorable in black or white. They are covered with glitter and have ribbon laces. I’m pretty sure they couldn’t be more girly, and I’m okay with that.

#4 For an inexpensive but luxurious gift, try these fluffy spots ankle socks in pink or grey. Classic Kate Spade polka dots!

#5 Looking for a small wallet? This super cute gold polka dotted cedar street confetti dot darla is a good gift… okay, or maybe for yourself.

 #6 The last thing I have to point out is the cedar street iphone 6 wristlet. I personally don’t have the iphone 6, but how sweet is this wristlet that has the perfect space for your phone and slots for cards? That’s always my wristlet issue. I jam my phone in there then carefully slide my cards in. Then when I pull out my phone, all the cards and cash fall out. So not what I’m going for… ugh.

Let me know if you buy anything! I can’t say if I’m buying any gifts… my friends read this! But I’m definitely thinking of buying the one in a million business card holder I mentioned in this post.

Modcloth Sale- subtitle I Love Minimalism and Modcloth. It’s a Conundrum.

red dress**This post contains affiliate links. If you buy something from them, I will get a portion of the sale. My opinions are my own, and I really do basically get everything I own from Modcloth, with my own money.**

So, I just got an order from Modcloth. The trick is, starting today they have one of the best sales I’ve ever seen. Stuff I just bought is now 40% off. It’s making me crazy. Of course now I want to buy more stuff. They have this thing where they sell things in just one color, and slowly roll out new colors. It really sucks me in.

Remember when I talked about how much I love this red dress? Well, now they have a cream version, and it’s super cute and on sale. Did I ever mention how this dress has pockets? I really wish my husband didn’t hate it, but since he does I’m saving some money. For reference if you buy this, they’re not kidding when they say UK sizes are a lot smaller than US sizes. I usually wear a 10 in US sizes, and I got this dress in a 16 and it fits perfectly. Don’t say I didn’t warn you 🙂

A few more pretty things that I’m drooling over, but do not need (sales, I’m telling you… sucking me in!):

black gingham dress with lace back

gorgeous burgundy coat

super cute bag- I’ve been wanting the blue version of this for so long

soft pajamas

And for what I actually bought! I am quickly realizing that since I hurt both my calf and my knees, I can’t wear heels anymore for every day. All winter I have been wearing boots, but spring is coming fast and I have zero flats that aren’t boots. I’m going to be barefoot! I decided to try two different flats that aren’t even part of the sale. I’m hoping one of them is comfortable.

ballet like flats

simple, beige flats

iphone5/5s charger – I wish I didn’t need this so much, but I do. I am trying to come to terms with the fact that my phone rarely leaves my hand…

rainbow umbrella – I want this to go with my bright red raincoat and boots!

Does anyone have some super comfortable flats that they could recommend for wearing to the office? Our dress code is business casual.
