Fun Kate Spade Bag

Fun Kate Spade Bag

Hi ITC Readers!


Today I’m doing a very brief outfit post to highlight a little bag my mom gave to me recently. She’s one of those people that can pick out gifts for others very well, and I never had those moments in high school where my mom chose some horrendous outfit and I felt like I had to pretend to like it. Nope, she just knows what people will like.


A couple of months ago we went outlet shopping and popped into Kate Spade and I fell in love with the “Make a Splash” line-it features bold stripes and little sunglass details on every item! My mom took note of how much I liked it, then snagged this little crossbody in the Kate Spade Surprise Sale! How thoughtful!


If you haven’t heard of the Kate Spade Surprise sale, basically every once in a while Kate Spade tries to clear out last season’s bags to make room for new merchandise, so they deeply discount their bags in a limited time online sale. You can access the sale here. I’ve gotten many Kate Spade bags for very cheap this way. Since Kate Spade is so timeless and classic, I don’t have a problem buying things as they’re going out of season-it’s not like it won’t still be in style next year!

It was HOT HOT HOT the day we took these pictures (you can probably tell by the intense shadows and bright sunlight). My husband captured this one as he made me laugh, and despite my terrible posture I had to include it as a blooper:




This exact bag and other similar options are available in the surprise sale now! I’ve linked them below. Be sure to check it out soon-the sale only lasts until tonight!
