Happy (floral) Memorial Day! Hope you all enjoy your day off, eat something off the grill, and most importantly, be sure to remember those servicemen and servicewoman who have lost their lives and thank a serviceman or servicewoman if you see one today!

And after you do all of that, be sure to check out the following sales to take advantage of some amazing Memorial Day weekend sales!

ps. You knew I wouldn’t let a patriotic holiday pass without some more red, white, and blue outfit combinations, right? You know me so well! Plus, you can wear just the tee and the skirt today, and throw on the blazer tomorrow for work! Presto, change-o! ;)

One of the best parts of blogging (besides interacting with all of YOU and being able to justify my spending to The Husband) is interacting with other bloggers! It’s so nice to be able to support and encourage each other even though most of us live in complete different states and have never met in person (except, you know…when you live in the same city…heeeeeey Sarah…more cake dates please)!

One of the bloggers that I regularly girl crush over is Nicole from Writes Like a Girl . You’ve probably seen me link to her over and over again, but she really is a breath of fresh air. We regularly exchange gushing, supportive comments for each other on social media, get excited for each other’s blogging victories, and now I’m stealing her outfit combos on a regular basis! ;)

Nicole paired her look (here) with a black hat and fringe ankle boots, which would perfect for the weekend, but the combination of a gray tee, black blazer, simple-but-interesting necklace, and red skirt works equally well for the office with black heels (and sadly, no hat!). So thanks for making an early morning what-to-wear-to-work battle easy, Nicole, by letting me steal this look (and for inspiring the purchase of this skirt)!

ps. Would this maybe a monthly feature you guys would like to see? Aka watch me steal an awesome outfit from another blogger while giving them credit and putting my own spin on it? Let me know!

All You Need is a Light Jacket

Describe your perfect date.

That’s a tough one. I’d have to say April 25th. Because it’s not too hot and not too cold. All you need is a light jacket.

Thanks to Miss Congeniality for the movie quote that keeps on giving, year after year after year. And thanks to Miss Rhode Island for the outfit inspiration. ;)

ps. If you haven’t seen Miss Congeniality yet…you must (also, where have you been? ;))! Sandra Bullock is one of my favs, and I love her in this movie!

Red Blazer, Not Pink

No, this is not a pink blazer. And no, I’m not having a midlife crisis.

It’s a red blazer.

This red blazer…to be exact.

I can confidently vouch for its redness (and that after years of swearing off pink and pink clothing items of any kind, I am now NOT embracing them). I just wanted to let you know, just in case you thought things were changing over here. They’re not…there is still a semi-permanent pink ban on this blog and an undying devotion to the color red.

But if you had a pink blazer (or purple or blue or green or yellow or orange), you could wear it with a black blouse, a tweed skirt, and some black accessories and look bright and ready for spring!

And now after that dramatic clarification, we return you back to your regularly scheduled blog viewing of red and blue outfits with touches of neutrals. ;)

ps. Also, please excuse the wind and the eye squints, and thank your lucky stars that you don’t have to take style blog photos in the Midwest! ;) And if you do, I feel your pain and let’s go get some margaritas and commiserate!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Working this Friday…and it’s the first Friday I’ve worked in a LONG time! Woe is me! ;)
  • It was basically a windstorm when I took these photos. This actually happens to me more than you would think…which is why I sometimes refer to the city I live in as Windianapolis (not Indianapolis, as it is normally known). Clever, huh? ;)
  • But don’t worry, I pushed through the wind and the chill to show you a classically Katie outfit: stripes, red/blue color combo, and ankle boots (with tassels!!).
  • I also feel that, deep down, Jenna Lyons would be proud of my colors here. Red, navy, and camel with a pop (or pom-pom) of baby blue!
  • I didn’t win the Powerball, guys. And now I have to break the news to Cooper that we can’t buy him a dumptruck full of tennis balls.
  • This weekend is going to be another weekend full of football watching…aka where I sit in my favorite armchair for two days straight.
  • But we are also celebrating a friend’s birthday with burgers and drinks on Saturday night, so I guess I might have to put on real people clothes and shower or something! ;)

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?
