Summer weather has finally arrived, and I’m over-the-moon excited… more like “over-the-sun!” Whether enjoying a staycation in Chicago, or flying to a glamorous exotic destination for beach time, I’m planning to embrace a vacation state of mind.

One brand that helps me feel like that 365 days a year is Kate Spade. Their collection is the epitome of color, whimsy, and fun – three ingredients that are quintessential to my personal style. I anxiously await to see their new offerings each season. No joke, I shriek with joy when their new arrivals email appears in my inbox! I can always count on Kate Spade‘s collection to have sweet surprises – from novelty clutches to beautiful accessories, delightful jewelry and fab fitness gear, home décor, accessories, and of course – their gorgeous clothing.

How are you planning to embrace the idea that “vacation is a state of mind?” Some of my favorite summer activities are picnics in the park (especially Grant Park with its spectacular views of Lake Michigan), Cubs games (I think it’s our year!), and of course mural hunting.

Be sure to take a peek at some of my favorite summer styles below.
