OOTD: kate spade Morocco Spring Faves - Part One!

This spring, kate spade went Moroccan!  

"this whole year, we’re celebrating a global world. there’s so much to see and to learn beyond our desks and homes. it’s full of natural wonders, vintage treasures, and creative minds. travel sparks our imagination, feeds our curiosity and reminds us how much we all have in common."
-Deborah Lloyd, President & Chief Creative Officer

With tassels, camels, and pom poms galore, everything was inspired by the culture and glamour of Morocco.  I have to say it has been one of my favorite collections so far, and I can't wait to travel through Mexico, France, and Russia throughout the rest of the year!  Even though it was imagined with Morocco in mind, the looks are all easy enough to adapt to our weather over here in the Midwest!

I'm going to spend a few posts highlighting my favorite looks from each collection!
Starting with an amazingly springy saffron colored dress and colorful berber striped wedges.

Kate Spade Eyelet Patio Dress // Kate Spade Multi Color (Berber Stripe) Dellie Wedges // Kate Spade White Set in Stone Enamel Hinged Bangle // Alex & Ani Charm Bangles // Forever 21 Daisy Earrings (old) // Charming Charlie Bow Crossbody (old, similar in gold linked here)

This patio dress is an amazing color and I can't wait to wear it this summer!   I just love the detail in the fabric and the tassels that hang from the collar.  The dress also comes with a cord with tassels to tie around the waist, but I just grabbed a skinny brown belt that came from another dress to spice it up a little.  PS: It's on sale right now (and if you go RIGHT NOW as in TONIGHT, you can get an extra 25% off the sale price!)

Just as my brown kate spade Imani wedges were my go-to last year, these new striped Dellie wedges are going to be on my feet at all times this year!  So many colors!

For accessories, I put on these giant daisy studs and my usual stack of arm candy.  For a purse, I tucked the gold chain strap of this maroon crossbody away and used it as a clutch.  (I actually have this bag in multiple colors... Couldn't get enough of it!)

Hope you enjoyed this springtime look and that you come back for more tomorrow!
