OOTD: kate spade Mexico Summer Faves Part Two!

Hi all!  Welcome to Part Two of my kate spade Mexico favorites!

I shared my extra spicy tee and taco truck bag with you last week, but today I'm here to show you my favorite sundress of the summer collection.

kate spade Embroidered Dress // Merona Lindsay Criss Cross Heeled Quarter Strapped Sandals // kate spade Scenic Route Cactus Statement Earrings // Pom Pom Woven Bag (from Hobby Lobby in the spring) // Pink Heart Sunglasses (from Target a few years back, here's a different pair)

This outfit was a long time in the making!  It took me about a month to commit to buying these cactus earrings.  Every day, I would go to work and be like, "SHOULD I BUY THESE? AM I CRAZY FOR LIKING THESE? WHAT WILL THEY GO WITH?" And the answers were, yes, maybe, and everything.  Finally, I determined that they would at least go well with this black embroidered sundress I had recently bought, so it was a go.

Since then, I determined that they actually go with a ton of my outfits!  If you've been following my Instagram story (@midwestmermaidolivia), you'll notice that I have been wearing them all the time!  And I tend to make note of it when I do.

To go into a little bit of detail about the dress - it's super comfy.  It's 100% cotton and completely flowy.  You can belt it (with a tie that comes with it) or leave it as a shift.  I honestly like how it looks both ways.  I do usually belt it though for a more finished look.  The embroidery around the neckline fits perfectly with kate spade's current Mexico theme, and if you look closely you'll notice intricate flowers and hummingbirds.  Overall, it's the perfect dress to wear if you want to be a bit dressed up yet still extremely comfortable.  Pair it with my favorite pair of sandals for the summer (which are on sale for $20.99 now), you have yourself the perfect outfit for a lovely summer day!

The heart sunglasses are something I picked up a few summers back.  You'd think I would feel silly wearing them, but you'd be wrong!  I mean come on, you're talking to the girl who has acrylic cacti dangling from her ears.  

The tote was actually the Easter basket that my mom gave me this year!  It's from Hobby Lobby and I had almost bought it every time I went in there (which was a lot)!  It's going to be the perfect beach bag this year.

Since the day these photos were taken, they have mowed down these purple flowers.  I'm sad about it.  Actually, they could have been poison and I wouldn't even know about it.  I thought of that about halfway through this shoot... oh well!
