Stripes and Khaki

Here’s a blast from the not-so-distant past. A striped, floral and khaki number I wore in the fall and never added to the blog.

Top: Marshall’s
Pants/belt: Macy’s
Shoes: Payless
Scarf: Shop in Portland

I’m looking for spring outfit ideas and this will work now, just like it worked in October. In fact, in Seattle, it works about nine months of the year. There’s only a few months in winter when open toes are too chilly for me. Even in summer, a light 3/4-length top and loose pants are fine, especially in the evening. Only the red leaves on the tree date these pictures.

I squeezed in a bit of pattern mixing with my floral scarf, and the red in the scarf picks up the color of my shoes. These shoes are so comfortable! The platform means the heels isn’t as high as it looks, and the pleather is soft and not at all sweaty.

khaki pants

I’ve worn these pants a lot! Definitely got my eleven dollar’s worth. They were on sale in the junior’s department and even came with the belt. I wanted a loose, casual look so I went up two sizes.

My grass is still green–we’ve had rain and only two days’ of snow this winter–but my herb garden is asleep. I can’t wait until spring so I can cook with freshly picked chives, parsley, basil and rosemary!

What parts of spring are you looking forward to?

  1. Those shoes are SO cute! I love the photos with that red tree and fog in the background too. You look great chica! Celeste 🙂

  2. A nice outfit capped off with colourful accents and amazing photography. Great Spring look while enjoying Fall colours.

  3. I’m looking forward to spring PERIOD! Any part of spring will suit me fine, we’ve had the coldest, snowiest winter I can ever remember and I’m definitely not a winter person!

    Love these photos, the misty background and the red leaves really makes for a great photo shoot! Love those shoes and they and add a pop of colour to this casual outfit. Scarves are a great accessory for most outfits and yours is beautiful! ♥
