I used to work at a smoothie shop and one of my guilty pleasures was making a daily creamsicle smoothie. Whoever came up with the idea of vanilla and orange together is an absolute genius. There is nothing more refreshing! When scanning my closet this morning this sweater and skirt danced before me and I was left with no choice than to relive my days of a smoothie connoisseur and form a creamsicle outfit right before my very eyes. Why did I never think of this before? I absolutely love these colors together - and with spring on the horizon and my fashion goals (wear more colors!) fully in check, this outfit is all I could of asked for and more. The lovely Adrianna from Le Mode Accessories sent me this lovely necklace and I thought it went perfectly with this outfit. I am such a sucker for anything with a gold chain and floral print. So predictable! Hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday so far. Bonjour to all my new readers, thank you for stopping by Postcards From! Actually...let me rephrase that. THANK YOU to every single one of you who reads my blog daily. You guys are amazing - so thankful for all of you.

All this talk of smoothies has me craving one like no tomorrow. I think its time I take 5 dollars and go for a little drive. Shhh ;)

  1. This is my favorite outfit of the new year from you! From those amazing wedges to the cable-knit sweater tot he creamsicle color scheme! You look wonderful.

  2. We're twins today. First of all, I have a sweater that looks just like that. Well, the orange and cableknit parts are the same but mine is thrifted and has a v neck. Second, I was totally creamsicle'd today too with orange tights and dress and cream socks and scarf. Great minds, Kate, great minds.

    You look totally fantastic as always! <333

  5. Kate, I love these colours together and such a cute inspiration story behind it! Never had a creamsicle before, orange and vanilla sound strangely like the would work perfectly together though. These photos have given me the courage to wear my midi pleated skirt soon so thank you for being so chic! x
