Navy + pink stripes for springtime

Two quick reminders:


I have worn my new navy- and pink-striped tee a few times already, but it hasn’t yet made it to the blog… until now! The pink and navy color combo feels so fresh for spring, and we’re finally seeing some blooms around here. Of course, it’s still off-and-on rainy (more “on” than “off”), so the rain boots are still a necessity.

I wore this on the weekend running errands, and it’s a good casual example of my personal style:

  • Comfy = Yep! Skinny jeans and a tee are always comfortable in my book
  • Classic = You can’t get more classic than a striped tee and a trench coat!
  • Touch of whimsy = The bits of whimsy for me come down to the pops of pink, especially in the unexpected pink trim on the rain boots, and in the daisy floral trim in the trench coat.

We took a break while running errands around town to enjoy a stroll around Wright Park, which is one of the oldest, and loveliest, parks in the city. They have trees of all different kinds, and placards on each so I always learn something new each time we visit. And OF COURSE I got excited when we came across an old cherry blossom tree, this one blooming with buds of white.

And at the end of our quick photo shoot, Sam spied a brightly painted rock around one of the trees. It turns out there’s a community art project called “Tacoma Rocks,” in which locals paint rocks and place them all around the city. Why? In order to spread happiness. The founder of the Tacoma Rocks group stated in a local interview that, “We spread smiles one rock at a time.” How awesome is that?!

The rock that Sam found spreads a great message, that “Different is cool!” ♥ ♥ ♥ I had to share this sweet story and awesome message!

    Really cute outfit Jen. I like how the navy and pink combined are so flattering, almost a color in itself. With your Wellington type boots you like your ready for anything! Love the idea of the art rocks randomly placed, different is definitely cool.
