This Summer’s Go-To Cross-Body + kate spade Summer Love


Meet the Hemsley.
As soon as this crossbody arrived in the mail last week, I’ve honestly worn it everyday since.  Y’all know how much I love a good crossbody, but this one is so much better than most.  Since it’s bigger than your average crossbody, it holds a lot more.  No more having to change your wallet size, to fit it into a smaller handbag.  I love that kate spade thought of everything with this one, as they usually do.  It’s a crisp white color, has a pocket on the front to hide (or find) your phone at a moment’s notice, and the little tassels are a perfect touch.  For those who prefer a different color, it also comes in black, navy, taupe and a greyish-blue.  I had a hard time deciding on what color, but in the end I knew the white was a perfect color for summer.

Isn’t this little phone cover the cutest?

And these heels are pretty amazing too!
For fit, they’re true to size.

This dress is as classic as kate spade gets.  It’s a great length and accentuates the waist so well.  The pockets are a nice little bonus and the quality of the fabric is soft, crisp and cool.  It’s super versatile too.  Pair it with a cardigan for work, and switch to flats for a fun weekend look.

I’m also not usually a fan of pleats, but these lay flat and don’t pop out like so many pleated dresses do.

I’m sure you’ve seen me wearing my new crossbody already in pics earlier this week, but I wanted to show y’all how versatile it it.  My look above would be fun for an evening out, and the one below would be great during the day!

I love this little flamingo set.  Would make a great gift too!

Whether you’ve got a fun vacation planned or just hanging out around town this summer, kate spade’s latest collection has something for you.  Designer’s summer collections are usually my favorite, mostly because summer is my favorite season of the year, but the colors and prints this summer from kate spade really are amazing!  Scroll through and see for yourself…

I hope y’all have a great weekend!  I think we’re looking at storms on and off all weekend.  Crossing my fingers that they’re the kind that just blow over!
This morning, we’re going to Wheeler’s “Terrific Kid” ceremony!  So very proud of my first-born who will be 8 in less than a month!  Now THAT, I don’t want to believe!
TGIF, Y’all!
Thank you to kate spade for their partnership on this post.

  1. That is a fabulous cross body bag! I love it in the white as well.
    Do you have any suggestions for a smaller cross body bag? Something that you can throw on to go to festivals, an art show, or sporting event? I'd love a bag that I can throw in my phone, lip stick and a some credit cards. I have plenty of "evening" appropriate bags – but nothing for a hands-free day. Suggestions??

    1. The strap featured is the only strap that comes with it, but I definitely think it's long enough to wear it across my body too. I wear it that way a lot, especially during the day.
