In an uber-feminine, ’50s inspired bright floral midi skirt, Katie proved herself a style chameleon. (Pretty different from the outfits she’s been sporting taking Suri to the park, AMIRITE?) She paired her pretty floral number with a bright green sweater, the perfect pop of color to complement her skirt.
