turquoise pom pom coverup

The Shopbop sale frenzy continues with this darling pom pom coverup! When I was shopping for my trip to St. Petersburg, Florida, I knew I’d be spending plenty of time in the sun. That’s why cute coverups were at the top of my list, and when I came across this one it was a no-brainer!

The Shopbop sale frenzy continues with this darling pom pom coverup! When I was shopping for my trip to St. Petersburg, Florida, I knew I’d be spending plenty of time in the sun. That’s why cute coverups were at the top of my list, and when I came across this one it was a no-brainer!

There’s too much to love about this little frock. First off… can we talk about how sweet and lady-like the cut is? I love the babydoll silhouette capped off with the sweetest ruffle sleeves and hem.

The cherry on top? The gorgeous string of blue and turquoise pom poms that lines the back! It perfectly mimics the shades of the ocean, and I find myself with a certain spring in my step when I have it on.

It’s currently 20% off (or 25% off if you spend over $500) with the code EVENT18, and in my opinion it’s a must! If you love a statement coverup (aka tassels, pom poms and all things colorful), check out this brand. They have too many cute options, and all are included in the sale! And if you missed it, you’ll find a roundup of all my sale favorites here.

Sadly, I’m packing up today to head home to Dallas. Ugh, hate leaving behind the sun and the sand! The not-so-sad part? My birthday is tomorrow! Andrew is picking me up from the airport tonight, and we’re off to my favorite Dallas sushi spot to get the celebrations started. I’m not usually a birthday diva (I was sick in bed last year!) but this year I’m so excited to celebrate! Can’t wait to fill you in on more! (A certain fiesta may be involved…)

Love from St. Petersburg,

Kate

Hello from St. Petersburg beach, friends! It’s been a dream staying at the Don Cesar and soaking in the beautiful seaside… and has given me the excuse to break out some gorgeous summer pieces to boot!

One that I’m thrilled to share with you today is currently 20% off in Shopbop’s site-wide sale! Word on the street is this sale will open to the public tomorrow, BUT you can use the code EVENT18 right away for 20% off of orders under $500 and 25% off of orders over $500!

And trust me, you’re going to want to use that code because I splurged big time on this pink ric rac dress. I don’t usually spend that much on a dress, let alone a casual one! But once I booked my ticket to St. Petersburg and my room at a pink hotel, my resistance to this darling piece was wearing thin.

Y’all know how hard I’ve been crushing on ric rac lately, right? And in my signature color? Impossible to say no to!

Even though it cost an arm and a leg, I’m head over heels in love with this little frock. I make sure to use this underneath when wearing as a dress, but also wear this dress over swimsuits as a cover-up when I’m headed to the beach! It’s one size, so keep in mind that I got the straps taken up to make it a bit more proportional to my frame. Taller girls, because of that you probably wouldn’t have any trouble at all with it!

As if the pink isn’t cute enough, check out this design in multi-color, navy, black multicolor, and white and navy! Act quick, these cuties are selling out like hotcakes!

Love from Florida,

Kate

P.S. The sandals I’m wearing in this post are ALSO included in the sale! I’ve had them for over a year and have worn them all over the world. See where-to and why they’re my favorite here!

red eyelet top

Really quickly, I wanted to introduce y’all to one of the sweetest little tops I’ve seen this spring, this little red eyelet top! It’s right under $50, comes in white and black, and is overall a sweet, swingy addition to any wardrobe. I just think it’s the cutest thing!

Let me tell you what… it’s hard to wake up in a bad mood here in St. Petersburg, Florida, even if it is a Monday! I got an early start this morning (we’re talking 5:00am, y’all) and got to experience the most beautiful sunrise over the water. I can already tell it’s going to be hard to leave this place!

I asked for restaurant recommendations for St. Pete’s last night on Instagram, and was overwhelmed by y’alls amazing, informative replies! Thank you SO much! Whenever I go on a trip, I feel so spoiled to get to ask for y’alls input. It’s always the best! Can’t wait to share the favorite spots I discover while I’m here with y’all soon!

latest & greatest vol. 55

Happy Friday, y’all! Whew… I don’t know about y’all, but I had quite a week! Not in a bad way, but in a “felt like I didn’t ever come up for air” kinda way. Anyone else? The good news is today I’m heading out of the office and out to do some ranchin’ with Andrew! Needless to say, I am so ready to get a little break in and my weekend officially started!

Happy Friday, y’all! Whew… I don’t know about y’all, but I had quite a week! Not in a bad way, but in a “felt like I didn’t ever come up for air” kinda way. Anyone else? The good news is today I’m heading out of the office and out to do some ranchin’ with Andrew! Needless to say, I am so ready to get a little break in and my weekend officially started!

I’m especially inspired by today’s roundup of the cutest new arrivals to hit the web! So much color and so much spring and summer fun! I’m goo-goo eyes for this blush palette (there are two color options and I can’t decide which I love most!) and this palm print shift dress I just splurged on. But y’all… it’s 25% off! Along with everything else on the Bloomingdales site! They’re having their Friends & Family Sale, and it’s amazing. Here are all of the details, along with a few of my favorites!

I haven’t historically been a big Bloomingdales shopper (simply because there isn’t one in Dallas) but lately, I’ve been loving it! I discovered a new favorite brand, Aqua, that has the cutest styles at an even better price point… almost everything is under $100!

Another item I have my eye on? This Coravin system, which allows you to pour a glass of wine without opening the bottle! I’ve been wanting one for a while, but since they’re definitely on the pricey side I haven’t pulled the trigger. Now, I think I have to!

Ok y’all… I’m getting giddy because this Sunday I leave for a sunny vacation to a pink hotel! I’ll be there through Thursday, and then come home to my birthday on Friday! Eek! What a week. I am so excited, and can’t wait to take y’all along with!

Love from Texas,

Kate

pink party dress perfection

Those are the three words that come to mind when I look at this fabulously-feminine frock. Have you ever seen anything so whimsical and fun?!

Pink. Party. Perfection.

Those are the three words that come to mind when I look at this fabulously-feminine frock. Have you ever seen anything so whimsical and fun?!

Because of my short height (all of 5’2″, y’all) I look to dresses with an above-the-knee hemline to create a proportionally-appropriate look. The flouncy nature of this piece is perfectly punctuated by the wrapped waist and higher length, making it the barbie girl all-grown-up dress of my dreams!

I will be the first to admit that this is typically much more than I’d spend on a dress. I’d actually been eyeing this style for a while now (it comes in multiple colors) and had held off until I saw it debuted in my signature color – hot pink! That was the moment I decided it was fate. Or just great marketing that did the trick on a susceptible shopper. Either way.

If you’re like me and love this dress (but not the price tag) fret not! Shopbop holds a Friends & Family event every spring where the entire site is discounted. Let’s hope this beauty is included and in stock when the time comes!

Love from Texas,

Kate
