Betty Brushstroke

I still haven't quite figured out what Betty's is, although during my last "photo shoot" in front of the sign I could just make out the sound of billiards from behind this backdoor to the business, so I am going to guess that it is a bar/billiards hall. If so, I should probably pay them a visit, just to patronize the business that allows me to take photos outside their alleyway about once a year. (Truth be told, I am horrible at billiards, but I do like to play!) Anyway, today I am wearing one of my favorite recent prints from J. Crew. The reason why I love this print so much is threefold: first, it's colorful, second, it contains a painterly print, and third, it really could be worn during just about any season. Since it is still pretty hot here in Los Angeles, I paired it with a lightweight blouse, but I can't wait to style it for the winter months with tights and a sweater, perhaps while playing billiards at Betty's?

  1. That is a beautiful skirt! I agree too there are so many things you could pair it with, but I really like the bright yellow top and cobalt bag with it here :)

    Hope you've had a great weekend :)

  2. You know how to put a colorful outfit together and look chic! Love it!

  3. Fabulous skirt! I love it paired with the yellow top and blue bag, but you'll have so fun with so many different color combos!

    I know I've said it before, but your backdrops are always amazing!

  5. You look gorgeous katie, love the classic shoes! I want to see what the inside of Betty's looks like although I'm sure it'll be dull compared to that outside! Hope you're having a lovely week. XO-Kim

  6. You'll have to let us know if you do venture into Betty's! If billiards is the same as pool (or even similar) I'm probably terrible at it :) I love that skirt--the colors are so pretty and work so well with the other colors in your look!


Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
