Pastel Stripes

National Stripes Day, which is a totally made up holiday courtesy of J. Crew, is here again! While I am naturally fond of wearing stripes and I wear them quite often, I really tried to amp up the stripes in preparation for the holiday this week. The irony is that although the holiday was created by J. Crew, the outfit I have on, including the striped tee and pastel purple pants are all from Old Navy! (Shhh...don't tell J. Crew!)

Obviously, nothing screams spring like pastels. Since Easter is just days away it seems particularly appropriate to bedeck oneself in pastels from head to toe. For this reason I didn't think it was too over the top to add my light pink Mansur Gavriel pink circle bag to the pastel mix! Speaking of things that indicate that spring is officially here, how amazing is this bougainvillea behind me? While I love the gorgeous pink petals of the bougainvillea, there is one thing I actually hate about these gorgeous trees that now seem synonymous with Los Angeles and that would be the spelling of the name! Every time I write about them I always have to look up the spelling! Maybe I should just stick to simple words that are easy to spell like "stripes". Now that's an easy one!

Tee: Old Navy "Mariner" tee here
Jacket: Target/Merona similar here

  1. This outfit is so chic and adorable and so Katie too. Leave it to you to find and own the perfect lilac pants. And girl I would hate spelling that gorgeous flower too (that is why I am not even attempting to spell it lol). As always you have the best designer bags too. Hope you enjoyed Easter pretty lady. See you Thursday on my linkup. =)

  2. I absolutely love your pink accessories, especially your bag! Thanks for linking up at Fabulous Friday last week—I'm cohosting with Jennie this week and we'd love to have you back. Your Bohemian Fish look was my favorite of last week and is featured in my post today! Please stop by (if you haven't already)!
