Hampden is by and far one of my favorite little suburb cities in the US. It's got the best shopping, food, and feel ever. I love visiting, and while we've visited before and taken photos, I've never really talked much about this area (and the last time we went, we weren't able to snap photos!). Jason and I went with my mother in law to shop and eat for our birthday, and I wore my brand new Kate Spade Keds to make sure I was comfortable the whole time.

We picked up my new shoes at Ma Petite Shoe - an adorable shoe and chocolate shop.

Jason got one of these sponge holders from Wild Yam Pottery.

We stopped in at the 13.5% Wine Bar before our dinner at the Food Market which I have been dying to try forever. It was SO good - those pretzels in the photo below alone will have us running back.

  7. I love the colors, and how your shoes kind of match your dress with the dots! This town seems so cute!

  8. One of my coworkers and I were in Kate Spade the other day and we were lamenting about the fact that we can't wear any sort of sneakers at work... I thought perhaps those sneakers were just cute enough to be able to! I love your pretzel ring.

  9. Ah that bag is glorious! Lovely photos. All of the Christmas things! <3


  10. Looks like such a fun day out. That bag is the cutest. All the details of this outfit come together so well; the lining of the coat matching is especially fun.

  15. That is one huge flamingo! Very pretty! That is a great bag and I think it looks like a real typewriter from far away! You can make people double take if you pretend to type on it haha. I hope you are doing well.
