Dots and Stripes

Earlier in the week, my husband and I went to go pick up some takeout from a local restaurant. I went with him and sat in the car because it's honestly nice to get in the car and look at something that's not my house or backyard for a little while! Well, for this "momentous" occasion of getting out of the house for something other than a walk, I got dressed in my new Marimekko tee! Because this tee is so playful and fun with it's whimsical dot pattern, I decided to opt for some fun, wide-legged pants to top off the look. I also thought my pink Mansur Gavriel bag, due to its round shape, would be the perfect complement to the look!

You might remember that last week I wore a dress that was also from the Uniqlo x Marimekko collaboration. Well, this is the second post in what will be at least a few more featuring items from this line! I know that I went a little overboard with getting my hands on Marimekko items from Uniqlo but the way that I justified it to myself (and my husband!) is that what I spent on 6 items was about the same price, maybe even less, than just one item from Marimekko's regular line of clothing! I was really thrilled that Uniqlo was able to offer some very aesthetically fun pieces that are good quality that all retail for under $50 a piece! In fact, I'm so thrilled that I'm even contemplating getting a few more things from the collection!

  2. What a perfect combination, Katie! I love the colors and the pattern mix.


  3. LOVE THIS SPRINGY LOOK SO MUCH AS I AM ALWAYS A FAN OF BLUE AND WHITE TOGETHER FOR SPRING AND SUMMER. Your tee is awesome and can be dressed up or down. For a good quality designer it's a great things that all items are $50 or less. Cannot wait to see what other pieces you got!

    Hope you had a great Mother’s Day and got to be close to your mama somehow, KATIE. =)
