It’s been some time since I’ve really bought a piece that I love and this Kate Spade Denim Rose Shirt Dress is definitely a love piece. The denim is really sturdy and heavy and no picture I’ve seen does it enough justice. It’s absolutely high quality. The only thing is the rose is darn near a decal so it feels like the adult version of a screen printed tee. So far so good on durability since it hasn’t cracked yet.
I wore it for a trip to Charleston recently and it was a total win. I blend right in with the magnolias. #camoflauge Because of the thick material, it makes a good transition piece since I don’t technically have to wear a sweater. I’ve been pairing it with my oldie but goody J. Crew shiny oxfords and a pair of festive printed leggings (usually polka dot). A note about the shoes, I wear those oxfords at least once a week and they are one of the most comfortable shoes I own. While they are no longer available at J.Crew, they are all over the resell sites like poshmark (possibly because people didn’t quite know what to do with them?)
As we get closer to summer, I’m shucking the tights and pairing with these fun little pom pom loafers. I’m sharing this outfit and the dress particularly today because it’s included in this month’s Kate Spade Surprise Sale which means it on super duper sale. At $129, it’s a pretty good price for what you’re getting. What I love about Kate Spade Surprise Sales is that if you have the patient and the shopping deities are on your side, you can snag little gems like this for 90% off sometimes. I love this dress and almost wish I waited but if I’m honest, I’ve gotten so many wears out of it since I first purchased it, I have zero regrets. I think it’ll be a classic piece for me that makes it through several seasons so I am excited to see it for such a good deal.
