katie_holmes_2012.pngA conspicuously ring-free Katie Holmes and a minder were seen arriving in New York City this weekend, most likely en route to a legal appointment: she is said to have spent at least eight hours in negotiation over the forthcoming divorce settlement over the weekend alone. As speculation mounts over the real cause of her split with Tom Cruise, the star has seemed determined to keep up a positive outward appearance, and seemed calm and cheerful in her breezy and casual summer outfit.

Wearing a floaty daffodil yellow skirt and cropped jeans jacket, she completed the look with a pair of pale camel suede boots with a wooden block heel and bare legs. The Cuban heel boots are a must-have this season, and you can find similar styles at all price points. Over sized tortoiseshell specs did little to conceal her identity, but Holmes is clearly taking care to surround herself with burly bodyguards at what must be a time of some anxiety.
