I’ve been a kate spade new york fan for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved the fun colors and vibrant prints that they’ve had in the past. However, there was a point where the brand become a bit darker and maybe not quite as playful. Through it all, however, I continued to be loyal kate spade girl.
When I heard that Deborah Lloyd was leaving, I was afraid of what the company and the brand were going to become. Then when I heard about the brand’s evolution, I was a bit nervous. As it turned out, Nicola Glass gave the brand a modern twist to the kate spade look we’ve loved over the years. She kept the roots of the brand and spruced up some of the designs, fabrics, and prints to make things fun again.
Living in Hawaii, it’s not easy to find dresses that you can wear everyday here. In my opinion, it’s very humid. You might say that it’s not all that humid, but coming from San Diego I can definitely feel it every day. I’m constantly searching for fresh fabrics to stay cool.
This time i decided to give the kate spade floral dots burnout dress a try. Last year I purchased this same dress with a different print, and I loved how it fit. I was sure that I was going to love this one too, and guess what? Yes, I was right! I actually love this one even more.
The colors from this month’s collection are very fun, and this print is one that I fell totally in love with. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that I was going to find something with this print, and this dress was just perfect. Even in winter time on Maui when the temperatures are between 70 and 80 degrees, the fabric (while not made of natural fibers) kept me feeling comfortable throughout the day and perfect at night.
I decided to wear the floral dots burnout dress with my kate spade nicola twistlock medium shoulder bag. This bag is perfect to keep your essentials with you when you are on the go. I also found these Banana Republic lavender shoes that matched perfectly. I have always loved this color, and I’m happy lavender is the color of the year. When you are walking, shopping, or just exploring you really want a pair of comfortable shoes, and these ones are very comfy indeed.
