I am SO EXCITED to introduce the NEW Oatmeal Lace for Emily Ley clutch collection!!! McKay Pittman, the designer behind Oatmeal Lace, is one of my very best friends here in Tampa. Our little boys are very close in age and best buddies. A few months ago, during a Starbucks run, we thought it’d be cool to look at fabrics to match the bold, preppy patterns found elsewhere in our little shop. I immediately fell in love with these five. Anchors, polka dots, striking navy, bright pink, GINGHAM and GOLD MONOGRAMS?! I couldn’t be anymore excited about these. And I secretly had my own little happy dance when I realized McKay used my monogram (ELC) on the sample bags shown here. YESSS! These clutches each features a preppy pattern, gold metallic monogram and signature Oatmeal Lace linen lining (great for people like me who shove any and everything into their bags).
My favorite part about these clutches are that McKay made them the PERFECT size for slipping into my diaper bag so that my things stay separate from Brady’s. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone digging for my car keys and pulled out a handful of Teddy Grahams instead.
Visit McKay’s shop too to see more from Oatmeal Lace. (Her bibs and burp cloths are THE BEST for babies. By far. And she just started offering crib bedding… ADORABLE). She’s an amazing designer and seamstress and a fabulous friend. : ) You can also follow her here:
BE SURE to place your order by November 30 if you’re interested in gifting one of these lovelies for the holidays!
