Juggling an acting career and a 7-year-old is no small feat, and even huge celebrities such as the lovely Katie Holmes need to have their solo retail therapy time. Judging from the earphones plugged tightly into her ears and her wary glances at the cameras, as opposed to her previous jovial self around the paps, the 34-year-old must have been hoping for some quiet time by herself when the paps decided to join her. Poor Katie.
The former Dawson’s Creek star casually strolled through the streets armed with a few paper bags, wearing an Isabel Marant Étoile Tucson Check Shirt and a pair of jeans. Katie dressed up the look with a pair of camel brown suede heeled booties, and a black Longchamp tote. The star seemed to have no makeup on, and hid her bare face behind oversized sunnies.

As far as plaid tops go, we’re pretty ho-hum about this one despite being a creation of one of the most brilliant designers of our generation. We do like, however, how the Katie was able to insert splashes of brown to an otherwise dark ensemble (good call on the belt-and-shoe-color rule, you). It gave the outfit a bit of a lift without making it too attention-seeking – perfect for an international celebrity in pursuit of an afternoon of anonymity.
