Green and White Stripes

In my opinion, this floral Kate Spade Lorella skirt begs to be worn with stripes. The first time around I paired it with a pink and white striped shirt, but this time I opted for a slightly different spin. When I found this green and white button-down shirt a few weeks ago for a mere $19 at the Ralph Lauren Factory Store, I knew immediately I wanted to pair it with this skirt; the two were made for each other!

I wore this outfit to go out to dinner this weekend with my husband. It wasn't a special occasion or anything, but it's nice to have a "date night" once in a while, as we usually are more homebodies in the evening, preferring to cook at home and spend nights watching TV with our English Springer Spaniel, William. For this night out, we went to a 50s-style steak place that makes the most incredible pepper filet mignon. Although the food, and to some extent the decor (sadly, this particular place renovated its inside in the 1990s, but it still has much of its original character), of the restaurant were a throw back to a different era, it saddens me that people don't get dressed up like they used to to go out for a night on the town. I am trying to bring that back, Hello Katie style!

  2. You own a ton of gorgeous floral skirts but I think this is my most favorite. It is stunning and so is that purple bag. Love the mixed prints with the green striped blouse. =)

  9. The bag against the green is divine. I'm always wary of stripes with florals to be honest but this is very classy. The stripes don't overpower the florals and the greens team beautifully.

    1. Thank you! I think the subtly of the fine stripes makes the combination work. I have done bolder stripes before too, but I agree that this is a more classy look.
