Kate Spade Inspired

Today I'm linking up with some really awesome bloggers for the June "Style Soiree" linky.  Today's inspiration: Kate Spade!  If there's one designer whose designs fit my personality to a T, it's K.S.!  I mean, bright colors, polka dots, bold stripes...Sooooo me, right? 
My inspiration:
Since I don't have any ACTUAL Kate Spade clothing, (Helloooo, teacher salary!), I pulled from what I already had, and I have to say, I surprised myself!  I would have never thought to pair stripes with polka dots, but seriously, so cute right??  The neon pink belt helped to separate the two patterns so they are totally wearable together!  I added my favorite chambray shirt (it even has little white polka dots) and my hot pink baubles.  I toned down the crazy with my simple silver flats.
 Lucy wanted in on the fun!  She loves Kate Spade, too!  Such a fashionista pup with her black and green bow, posing on the polka dot chair.  Kate Spade would be super impressed, Lucy. 

Remember when I said I don't own anything Kate Spade?  Ooops, I lied.  I forgot about my Kate Spade china from my wedding registry!!!  I wasn't even going to register for china until I saw this cute design!  Who says china has to be boring?  Definitely not Kate Spade!
Don't forget to stop by Pinterest Told Me To, Our Fifth House, Effortless Style, Rain on a Tin Roof , and Southern State of Mind for more Kate Spade inspiration!

I can't forget to send happy, happy 17th birthday wishes to my little sis Elena today!  I'm so proud of the beautiful young lady you've become!  Love you lots!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope today's post "brightened" your day!
