Today, N wears a fun, casual outfit for a day out and about. She wears a sky-blue, geometric patterned fringe tank with a light, white sleeveless jacket layered on top and light blue, floral-print shorts. She completes her look with her usual bow motif in her hair (or really, about to be clipped in), adorable bag, and matching, sky blue bangle.

Today, N wears a darling, little blue dress with an innocent white bow and low, flower heels- a perfect outfit for a dressy dinner or classy concert. She accessorizes the dress with a simple gold, bow bangle, giving the outfit a complete look.

Different perspective (and look. a bag? I wonder when that’ll show up again… ^o^ ):

M Material: Kate Spade Haul 8/16

“Playing dress up begins at age 5 and never really ends.” -Kate Spade

As you guys probably noticed out by now, we went shopping at Kate Spade’s flagship store on Madison Avenue (NYC) a couple weeks ago and bought gorgeous, pink bags. Shopping there was overall, a lovely experience with a friendly staff and fun decor with plenty of couches for your significant other to relax on. Make sure to have plenty of time as you definitely don’t want to skip out on one of the 4 floors.

There’s something special in the air during the summer. It’s almost as if there’s an invisible, sparkling energy that brings towns and cities to life.

Her flowing tank captures the beautiful, fleeting nature – perfect in August as summer draws to an end.

Living on the Edge

N sports a look today different from her usual. She decides to layer a faded vest over a tank and pair it with white shorts. This definitely creates an edgier vibe, different from her usual girly outfits. Nevertheless, the outfit is casual and comfortable – perfect for a summer adventure.
