Library Chic


Good morning! No matter how your Tuesday is going, I have a little something that's guaranteed to make it better. The new Kate Spade line has just been released at Swoozie's and it's pretty gosh-darn amazing. Newspaper and library prints, iconic gold dots, bow-shaped magnets and the cutest writing utensils you can imagine are all part of the chic new line. I took the "make headlines" canvas tote out for a spin… it's big enough to hold books, notebooks, your iPad or even a laptop. Read on for some more of my favorite pieces from the line!


Isn't everything "library chic"? That's what I'm calling it at least! So cute, classic & I love the traditional Kate Spade dots and pops of color. The ballpoint pens may be my favorite because I have a "thing" for pens (these write really smoothly) and they also have little sayings printed on each one! You can view the whole collection from Swoozie's here. (And look out for another fun post on Thursday that you won't want to miss!!!)
