Sincerely, Kate

Like many of you ladies out there, I have a deep love for Kate Spade. Kate Spade purses, Kate Spade homeware, Kate Spade stationary. Everything and anything Kate Spade is my favourite! This brand constantly creates new products in bright, happy colours that can put a smile to one’s face, uses shimmering gold and silver tones to transform your plain office supplies into an actual stylish accessory, and incorporates cool patterns and phrases to produce adorable items for your kitchen and dining room table.

One other thing I enjoy about this designer label: they have ACTUAL SALES! I love that they consistently offer wonderful online sales (there have been sometimes up for 75% off flash sales) and as recent as last week, I walked into one of their store locations and they had a great 25% off sale the majority of their merchandise.

Since my latest visit to a Kate Spade store last week and discovering more about their homeware as I created my bridal registries, here are my latest favourites from KS:

Rockin’ Romper

Even with the chilly period in April, summer is constantly on my mind. Summer is a great season for many reasons. Warm sunshine, hot weather, longer days, and an increase in natural Vitamin D is wonderful, but one thing I look forward to the most is the fashion. Summer fashion usually consist from vibrant colours and bright patterns and feel lighter and airy on the body as you wear the items during the season.

Aside from elegant maxi and midi dresses and cute shorts, one of my favourite things to wear during the summer is the romper! A romper is a great cross between a onesie and a jumper, comes with shorts, and can be designed with sleeves or straps or strapless, solid shades or colourful patterns. I love rompers because they are comfortable, easy to wear and help you stay cool in hot and steamy summertime weather.

When it comes to shopping for a romper, I like to be conservative when shopping for them, as they are a trendy, seasonal item and can only be worn in warm weather or be taken away on a hot vacation.

Last spring, I came across the online store Boohoo.com – an international etailer founded in Manchester, United Kingdom – which sold several adorable rompers at great pricing (which stays great even after converting the prices from pounds to dollars). One important thing to note – if you are going to shop for rompers on Boohoo.com, the British call rompers “playsuits”, so that is how you can search for them on the site. Here are some of the incredible selections currently on Boohoo.com:

The rompers come in a variety of styles, materials, and colours. I admit, I am a huge fan of floral and paisley patterns. Rompers are fun to wear, so it is a great time to rock a funky pattern when wearing one. I can speak from experience, from sporting my green paisley patterned romper from Boohoo.com last summer on the streets of New York City:
