Color Brigade: Vol 3





Forever 21 White Trench Coat - XS (really old) (buy similar)


I'm trying to kill two birds with one stone with this outfit.  Today is of course, Color Brigade Tuesday but it is also Breton Stripes day at Everybody, Everywear!


This striped outfit was actually not my originally planned outfit, but it turned out to be way colder than I thought when I woke up this morning.  My thin striped long-sleeve shirt wasn't going to cut it so I opted instead for this soft angora cowl-neck sweater dress instead!  With this heavy sweater dress layered under another thick wool skirt, I was ready to brave the cold weather (and by cold, I mean temperatures in the 40s.  I'm a Texan!  ^_^)  I admit that the gray is a bit darker than I would prefer for Color Brigade day, but alas I had to stay warm and I needed stripes.  Hopefully you'll be a little lenient on me for this one. 

Now it's your turn!  Link up your colorful outfits and make me wish I hadn't worn such a boring gray.  :)

Note, feel free to link up any outfit you wore in the past week or an outfit that you'll be wearing later this week -- it doesn't have to be something you actually wore today!  

  1. Put this button on your blog sidebar.  Entries without this button will be removed. 
  2. Click on the "Click here to enter" button.
  3. In the "Link it to:" section, leave a link to your colorful creative outfit for the week combining at least 3 different colors. Note that prints count as 1 color (e.g. leopard print = 1 color)
  4. In the "Caption or Title:" section, tell us what different colors you're wearing.  Example: Gold, Cream, and Red.
  5. And that's it!  Go back and check out the other amazing entries from members of the Color Brigade!

Sorry that EBEW fell on the same day as your color brigade. But, I do love how you worked the two together! The skirt and tights are perfect together and the striped top adds a great pattern to it all!

Your grey/white stripes look so good against the subdued teal and maroon of your bottoms. I think maroon tights definitely need to be a staple in every girl's closet!

kileen said... [Reply]

@Amy Z. i agree! i wear mine at least once a week! :)

Linley said... [Reply]

I LOVE this outfit - you look so classically chic! I do have a soft spot for stripes :)

Kileen - I'm so sorry - I messed up my entry (#4) when I tried to enter it via iPhone. Please excuse the double entry - is there any way to delete the mess up? Thanks so much!

This is perfect! I love that skirt with those tights and shoes. Fabulous color combination, and the stripe compliment it so well!!

There is just something about this outfit that I am completely in LOVE with! It just looks so clean and classic! That coat is gorgeous...I remember trying to buy that from F21 a few years ago (or a similar one) but they were sold out, so I ended up with orange. I think I'll wear it today for color brigade day!

Tina said... [Reply]

I really like the subtlety of this week's color brigade. It just goes to show that you can colorful doesn't have to be loud.

Love this look! The colors are fantastic - especially loving the maroon tights with the blue skirt. Don't you just love the J Crew serge pencil skirt? I'm finding it very VERY difficult not to wear mine all the time.

kileen said... [Reply]

@SewPetiteGal just fixed! :)

kileen said... [Reply]

@Linley just fixed up your entry! :)

kileen said... [Reply]

@Hiking in Stilettos that's what i did! i just loved the colors too much! :)

Melissa said... [Reply]

You are just perfectly gorgeous in this! I love the color in that skirt and the cowl neck on the sweater is so flattering on you.

I think you hit by challenges spot on! The skirt is so beautiful. I keep hoping it will go on sale :)

This is my favorite of your three color brigade offerings. I don't think it is boring at all.

Nelah said... [Reply]

The color of your skirt is so gorgeous. The entire outfit looks so luxurious with that coat. You are one well dressed lady who has a great sense of style! I find a lot of inspiration from many of your outfits.
