Remembering Kate Spade

Kate Spade - Kelly In the City


It took me a while to decide what to say on the blog after hearing of Kate Spade’s passing. While I typically shy away from talking about current events here, I knew I wanted to post; I’ve loved the designer since I was young and she’s played a big role in the development of this site. It was, though, difficult to eloquently put it all into words. Of course, I’ve failed at the attempt and I’ll likely read this tomorrow and wish I’d said a thousand other things. Nevertheless, here it is.

I want to take more photos at night–or at least take more photos while the sun is setting. :) It’s my favorite time of the day now that things are nice and toasty here in Chicago, and we almost always get ourselves out of the house for it. The air is thick with humidity; the fireflies dance circles around us; Emma is giddy to be up a little later than usual. So much of our normal togetherness takes place when we’re juggling a zillion other things, but twilight is our uninterrupted time. It’s a couple of hours that we aren’t go-go-go. Instead, we’re slow-slow-slow. 😉

Hi Friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. :)

I had to move around some of my blog posts on account of some scheduling issues, but I’m comin’ at you in real time with 20 best-selling products from the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale, which ends TODAY! I mentioned this last week, but I recently discovered how easy it is to track what my readers are clicking on and buying, and I thought it would be fun to share that info with you! (Side note: See ALL my picks from the Half-Yearly Sale here.)

So here’s what YOU have loved from the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale:

Hey, guys! I thought I’d do a quick review of the Everlane Day Heels today since I get so many questions about them. :)
