Happy Friday! We made it through another week, and it’s time for the weekend. It is supposed to be a beautiful one here in Pittsburgh–relatively speaking. Beautiful here means almost 60 degrees around this time of year.

Today’s post features the Kate Spade New York Loden bag, which I found at the outlets during my recent trip to D.C. for work. It came in a large and small size; I debated over the large for a while but ultimately decided on the smaller version. As a petite woman, I thought that the large size was a bit too overpowering for me. The saffiano leather is scratch-proof and water-proof, making it an ideal companion for a busy lifestyle. Plus, the pink color is just plain fun. I may or may not have let it sit on top of my desk all day yesterday just to look at.

What is new and exciting with you guys? Are you as ready for warmer weather as I am?! It’s so close!

Thanks for reading!

    Love love love the pink bag!! Everytime I see it, it inspires me to step out of my comfort zone of black bags and add some color when I purchase the next one

    How are you liking your Small Loden? I purchased one at an outlet mall today. But when I came back home, I started debating if I should’ve gotten the large one. I am afraid what if the bag is too small for me to use. In your photos, the bag doesn’t seem all that small. I guess since I will be using this bag as a daily bag not a work bag, i guess it’s for it to be small. 🙂 Please share with me what you put in your bag. I love your blog!

      Jen, I actually feel the same way about this bag. I purchased it at the outlets as well, and debated whether I should have gotten the larger one. I usually carry the same bag all the time for work, and don’t usually unpack it throughout the week. If you are only using this as a weekend or non work bag, it should be great for holding what you need (phone, a few makeup items, planner, large wallet) but there’s no way I could carry a pair of shoes or my lunch in here. I have been debating consigning this one myself, but haven’t made the jump yet. Let me know what you decide!! I’m glad you found Wellesley & King!! Make yourself at home. 🙂
