Transitional Stripes

In my last post, I wrote about transitioning my wardrobe from winter to spring and, as you can see by this post, I am still in the mindset to find ways to incorporate some spring pieces into my winter wardrobe while simultaneously keeping warm! I found this striped skirt for a great deal last weekend at Nordstrom Rack, which is fast becoming one of my favorite stores for some killer bargains. As a case in point, this skirt was under $30! Even my husband liked it and stated that I didn't have anything quite exactly like it already in my wardrobe. (To be honest, however, I think I do, but I never look a gift horse in the mouth!)

I paired the skirt with some white tennis sneakers because I wore this for a very casual lunch out. I am still in love with the idea that you can pair dresses and skirts with sneakers because they are so much more comfortable than heels! My final touch to the look is this fuzzy, polka dot sweater that I bought a few years ago at Madewell. It picks up some of the brown toned stripes in the skirt so it's a perfect pairing. In the future, I might go with a pale yellow sequin sweater but I have yet to purchase it! It's on my wish list for what I want to add next to my wardrobe, although I do already own a couple embroidered/sequin yellow sweaters!

  1. I love the simple trainers with this look Katie! The tones here are gorgeous - especially that blush pink. Hope you are having a great week xx Maria

  2. That skirt was a great find. Love the pattern mixing!

  3. I agree this is a fabulous combination! The skirt looks so springy. The light handbag (I want to find a blush one!) and shoes give it a warm weather look.


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