Stripes





All this striped dress needed was a few staples to finish the look. The grey vest is from Target last winter. If I owned a brightly colored belt I would have worn that. . .but we all know how I feel about grey.

dress: Loft Outlet, similar
vest: Target, winter 2011
belt: J. Crew
Espadilles: Old Navy, summer 2012

  12. Kate, you do such a wonderful job on your blog. I'm in my 40s and have always had short hair. Your blog has inspired me to grow it out and HAVE FUN with it. Keep up the great work. You're adorable.

  15. Hi Kate! I have just discovered your blog and love your hair! :-)
    You are evidently a natural blonde, but I would like to know how you lighten your shade--highglights? Please let me know, as I want to ask my stylist for your hair color. Thank you!!

    1. I like how you are so big and famous now that you can't even say "here's a link to all that information" or something like that.

      Sorry. Too busy. Kate's a celebrity now, guys.

    3. I apologize if it seemed short--oftentimes I'm responding to comments at the salon so I may only have a minute to write something quickly!

    4. No worries, Kate! I live in another country, otherwise I would go to your salon to get my color done.

  16. I love this outfit! Now that you mention a colorful belt, I think you need a red one to match your earrings. :) You look adorable!

    Now if I could just wake up in the morning early enough to try any of your cute hairstyles....

    By the way, I found out about Birchbox from your blog and just signed up -- I'm so excited!

  33. I have this dress and get several compliments every time I wear it. Never thought I could "do" horizontal stripes. I usually wear a navy cardigan and red shoes but the vest looks great! Will have to try it.

  35. 1) Have you lost weight? This outfit makes you look SO thin =)
    2) I totally love this. I am often not bold enough to belt my cardigans, but I obviously have to try it more often now.

  37. Your striped dress is too stunning and it is showing the brand awareness you have and all the things that you collect with a hard shopping makes you perfect in your style and if you also get your colored contacts canada it will improve your personality that will help you to look great.
