Kate Spade Wants to Take Over Your Kids’ Closet With Her New Line
If you thought all of Kate Spade’s pieces were adorable, just wait until you see them all on your kids. After the brand recently announced that they would be closing all Kate Spade Saturday and Jack Spade brick and mortar stores, they then came back with some news of a more uplifting nature: a children’s line is coming shortly.
After a super successful holiday collaboration between Kate Spade and Gap Kids, it seems as though the company has decided to make childrenswear a permanent extension of the brand. To be honest, we’re somewhat surprised it’s taken this long. The characteristically playful designs Kate Spade is known for are definitely bound to translate well into fashion-forward kids’ apparel. One glance at the candy cane–striped tights or bow tie printed pants featured in that Gap Kids collection are really all we need to prove our point.
Not many details have been released surrounding the line, but we do know that it’s supposed to launch in the next few weeks. It has yet to be announced whether the line will be sold at Kate Spade or as its own label. We’re also not sure what the price point will be for this kid-friendly rendition of designer duds, but if they’re sticking close to the collection created with Gap Kids, they’ll retail for $20 to $130.
We’re waiting with bated breath for the undoubtedly adorable lookbook that’s sure to accompany this line’s launch, but just in case you can’t wait that long, go ahead and take a gander at these pieces from the Gap Kids + Kate Spade collab (some of which are now on sale for super cheap, BTW.)
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
