A-Z Series: K is For

Whoa, February where did you come from? That's all I have to say about that. 

Today is an extra special day on the blog as we have TWO wonderful ladies sharing their favorite K items with us today.  Katie from Miss Dixie is my go-to girl for inspiration in just about any category.  She's currently re-doing her laundry room and incorporating lots of handsome images for us to stare at.  Not to mention she provides fabulous recipes and gorgeous fashion items.  Lauren from Stylized Existence has been starting to incorporate more outfit posts (which I love) and continues to amaze me with her outfit inspiration each day. Lauren also offers personal styling services that you can check out here.  Such an amazing duo.  Take it away Katie and Lauren:

Good Morning everyone! This is Katie from Miss Dixie and Lauren from Stylized Existence and today, we are so excited to share our favorite "K" things with Carly's lovely readers! Carly is such a doll and we were thrilled to be part of this fab series. We each created a design board based on a favorite "K" of our own, and then collaborated on mutual favorites.

First up, one of my favorite designers, Kate Spade. I adore her cheerful, fun and beautiful approach to design for clothing, accessories and home. I also have to admire that this company was founded by a woman with a dream to design something she had desired for years. If I ever need a dose of color, I head over to Katespade.com. And have you ever been in a Kate Spade store? It is practically like going to a party! This spring I am really loving the stripes, nautical touches, and pops of bright colors seen in Kate Spade's line.

Krystal has been a huge inspiration for me since I first started reading blogs. When I was starting out, I reached out to her for some blogging tips and she {generously} gave me the help and the push that I needed to take my blogging to the next level. Her outfits are always on-point, and she has such a diverse range within her personal style. As you can see in the spread, she can style just about anything, and she always has a very tailored look about her - she is definitely a style icon for me. 
-Lauren

We teamed up to bring you a list of each of our favorite items below, but how do you really choose!?

Honorable K mentions also include:
-Kilim Rugs
-Beautiful Kitchens
-A stylish kindle cover

We had a great time putting this together. Thanks so much again for having us Carly! 
xoxo,
Katie and Lauren

Holy incredible K post.  I'm officially impressed with the letter K and all of its glory. Due to this extremely thorough and gorgeous post, I just have one K item to add: k.slademade. Her clutches are handmade and provide that perfect pop of color you've been looking to add to your collection.  You can also find her on Etsy. The keychains would make a perfect gift for a friend or yourself.  Sometimes gifts for yourself are just the way to go--you know what I'm talking about.

xoxo Carly
