Purple Boots + Kate Spade

Last weekend was the Mountain Brook Village tent sale, and as I was perusing the sales I stumbled upon this unbelievable pair of purple boots at Stella Blu … they had one pair left and as fate would have it they were my size! Originally $200, I scored these bad boys for $20!!!!!!! I’m a little bit obsessed. And I know we’re a long way off from having cold weather in Alabama, but pairing your favorite boots with a pair of cut-off shorts is an awesome way to transition into your fall wardrobe! (Adding your favorite new Kate Spade bag to finish the look couldn’t hurt either!)purple boots cut off shorts kate spade purple boots cut off shorts kate spadepurple boots cut off shorts kate spade purple boots cut off shorts kate spade purple boots cut off shorts kate spade purple boots cut off shorts kate spade purple boots cut off shorts kate spade purple boots cut off shorts kate spade

Ella Moss + Leopard Shoes

 

We’re back! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks for both A and me… but we’re back in action and ready to do some serious blogging! Today’s post features a few of my most favorite recent acquisitions. You can’t go wrong pairing a simple Ella Moss dress with some funky cheetah sandals!!! [These sandals are a point of contention in my family... but whether people love or hate something that you're wearing... rock the heck out of it anyways! Who even cares what they think as long as you feel fab and fierce!?!]

FIFA – Brazil

Today’s post comes at the request of one of our favorite Mignonne readers! Maysa lives in Brazil and has faithfully followed our blog almost since the very beginning… She wrote us and asked if we would do a styling post on dressing for the World Cup! If you live on planet Earth then chances are you know that the World Cup is upon us – and this year it is being hosted by Maysa’s home country! She sent us a package of Brazilian goodies and we have styled them to show how we would dress in Brazil’s colors of yellow, green and blue if we were lucky enough to be attending today’s game – Brazil vs. Cameroon!

A black tank makes the printed skirt take center stage and wedges keep the outfit elevated while still providing comfort for a long day spent at the stadium (or at your local sports bar!) – these Michael Kors wedges are literally the most comfortable shoes I own. I wore them for 9 hours while walking around market and my feet didn’t hurt at all! (And they come in a variety of colors!) We love to mix and match metals when it comes to jewelry – and your accessories are the perfect place to bring a POP to your ensemble (like we did here with the pop of blue!). And a bold red lip never killed nobody, either! So weather your rooting for Brazil or the USA, keep it stylish when you hit the stands or the bar stools this World Cup season! And a big big THANK YOU to Maysa – we love you and all of our faithful readers!

P.S. How adorable is my photographer/sister Leah who was reppin’ that red white and blue!? (even her hair is ready for the festivities!) USA plays Germany this Thursday – don’t miss it!

La Tour Eiffel

This last week I LITERALLY walked into heaven. Ok, not literally… there’s no “Heaven is For Real” situation going on here. What I do mean though is that, unbeknownst to me, Kate Spade hosted their grand opening of their new outlet store in Destin, FL this last weekend. As coincidence would have it, (or maybe as some weird Kate Spade sonar system I have buried deep within me would have it) it was the same weekend we took a spontaneous Father’s Day beach trip with my mom, dad and little sister. Needless to say I FREAKED OUT when I saw that shining gold spade atop the new store front. It was everything I had hoped it would be. They were having a grand opening sale of 40% off and then 20% off of that – I think the sales associate who greeted me at the door thought I was legitimately having a hysterical breakdown. It was the best day of my life. (Not really, but sort of… you know what I mean.) The rest of the outlet shopping was a success as well and I walked away with the perfect outfit to complement the Eiffel Tower Kate Spade shoes that I had been saving in my closet for months.

I might not be able to see the Eiffel Tour from my parisian apartment… but I sure do enjoy looking down and seeing it on my feet! Next time you’re in FL go check out the new Kate Spade outlet… it won’t disappoint!!!
