purple + stripes

This past weekend, a friend needed a ride to the airport, so my husband and I decided to drop him off and then make a date out of it. The entire date felt like we stepped back in time, doing the same things we did before we were married: a Star Wars run (and nabbing a 3' Darth Vader on super sale), sitting down for some Mexican food, and watching the World Cup, all in this outfit. I spent much of the summer of 2011 in this skirt and fitted t-shirts like the one I'm wearing below. It was such a pleasant date. We rounded out the weekend by watching Novak Djokovic win Wimbledon (he's my favorite!), and playing some pick-up soccer. It was a great extended weekend. Did you do anything fun or special this weekend?

  1. We went on a date Saturday night too, except you probably look much cuter than I did in my shorts and striped tee. It was fantastic to have such a long weekend. Can I love that y'all went on a Star Wars run? Definitely something we would do.

  2. At this point, you get me, so I can say what I'm about to say without regret. You look hot, Kate! That skirt fits you perfectly, hits at the perfect spot on your waist. Oh, and it has pockets? It gets no better than that. The purple is unexpected (not for you, obviously, just with the striped skirt), which makes me like it even more. Would you gasp and never comment again if I told you that I have yet to see Star Wars? There, I said it.

  17. I agree with Danielle - you look super hot in this outfit, Kate! I loooove the way your skirt fits you! I am a fan of the fitted top + skirt combo myself :) It sounds like you and your man had a wonderful weekend - relaxing but with fun stuff sprinkled in! I was excited to see Novak win Wimbledon as well...because Novak is my mom's maiden name, haha.
