When One Door Opens...

This is my first post of 2018, so I can officially wish all of my readers a Happy New Year! As the old adage goes: when one door closes, another one opens. This saying definitely holds true for the New Year. The door closing on the past year gives birth to a fresh start and a new beginning! Personally, I am not one for New Year's resolutions (let's face it, we never keep them!), however, I am excited for what 2018 has in store for me and my blog!

I am obviously using the aforementioned saying not only because it's applicable to the start of the New Year but it also relates quite nicely to the pictures in today's post! There is a great pink wall that adorns an Out of the Closet thrift store in Los Angeles. Recently, they painted a white door on the pink wall and I thought it would make for some fun pictures. Plus, it kind of ties into the whole New Year, new beginning theme, which was a happy accident!

I haven't yet said anything about my ensemble featured here! I would say it's one of my favorites of the year, but since this is my first post of 2018, that wouldn't be saying much! This sweater from Talbot's and my embroidered skirt from Boden came on the same day, much to the horror of my husband as pretty much everything I ordered for the month of December was delivered on the same day! Anyway, when I took both pieces out of the packaging, I noticed that they looked perfect together and thus an outfit was born! I hope it's a colorful and fun way to kick off the New Year at Hello Katie Girl!

  1. This is soooo adorable, Katie! I love this look! Your bright colors are so cheery and fun. That bag is gorgeous, too!

  2. The pieces do go great together. It's lucky they arrived on the same day.

  3. I love the bright pops of color in your outfit. The stripes are just perfect!


  4. Those pieces were clearly meant to be paired together! Love the bright colors!


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