{Link Love} Giveaways, Kate Spade Kicks, Twitter Tips


I’m overdue for posting some link love.  Here a few things I’m loving right now and want to share.



– Keds x Kate Spade debuts new sneaker today! Gotta love this designer collab. There are pointy-toe sneaks that come in three prints (including that Kate Spade lemon print that’s so hot right now!) and a laceless design that comes in floral and geometric print – so easy to slip on.  Shoes are $75 and now shoppable at Ked.com or Kate Spade Stores. Wear to concerts, amusement parks, and or pair with jeans for a casual outing. Keds was nice enough to send me a couple pairs so be on the lookout for them appearing in an outfit post or Instagram pic.

The necklace is the Swarovski Amorous Pendant, retails for $125 and is even cooler than it looks. The chain is adjustable, making the heart pendant easy to style, and the clasp holding the two heart together opens so that you can wear the necklace three different ways.  I opted to wear on the shortest setting with both hearts together so that the piece better stands out.
