Stripes at the Santa Monica Pier

I have long desired to see the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles. I finally got the opportunity, and it reminds me so much of the Boardwalk at home!

Kate Spade Oxford in NYC

These late summer/early fall days are so magical! Nate and I were in NYC for the weekend, and in between the events we came to town for, we took an afternoon and just walked around the city.   The weather was amazing and the sun was just right. It definitely felt like summer was over, … Continue reading Kate Spade Oxford in NYC
