After my blindingly bright outfit yesterday, I had to go in the opposite direction today and sport some muted neutral colors.   But, in order to make the outfit not completely boring, I added a little colorful scarf.  My inspiration was all the recent necktie blouses that I've seen some of my fave bloggers wearing recently (e.g. Kelly, Elle, and Annie).  I'm honestly a bit on the fence with the whole look, but at least I get some points for trying something new right?  :)

In non-fashion related news, we're getting a photobooth at my wedding so that people can take home little picture strips of themselves as their party favors.  Thanks to my awesome Chinese negotiating skills (haggle like you got nothing to lose!) I was able to get an awesome deal on one.  I can't wait for some awesome wedding craziness!

  4. I think the bow tie is fun. The braided edges of your cardigan are pretty. I really like photo booths at weddings. It's something memorable, and in Ohio you don't see them at every single wedding.

  13. A photobooth is something that I've always thought would be fun to have at a wedding. I'm not sure of how it would work in a wedding setting (technical). I hope you share this! :)

  19. You know how much I also love bows so that's how much I adore your outfit. I love the print on the scarf you used to tie the bow, so interesting!

  22. I think you did a great job Kileen!
    Cool idea with the photobooth! We did something similar, we had photographers take pictures of people as their favors and at the end of the night they could take home their framed pics! It seemed like a hit since everytime we go to someone's house it's displayed since it's a picture of them and not us ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. yes, i think pictures as party favors are much more memorable. otherwise i
    have so many wedding favors that just end up piling up and eventually stored
    away in a box (unless the bf throws it away!).

  24. love love love how you tied your scarf sweetie!!

  25. I love what you did with the scarf! I think it is a great look. I did something similar here: http://fashnlvr.blogspot.com/2011/02/balance-30x30-day-5-6-with-tie-bowed.html
    I really like your black pumps and your long sweater vest/cardigan. Great look!

  26. I like the 'boring' outfit, but the scarf does look nice! That vest is amazing! I like to tie the bow a little lower, just so it doesn't chop up the neckline-- I used to do ballet and length (long necks, long arms, long legs) are a huge obsession.

    ReplyDelete
  27. oh great tip!! i'll keep that in mind for next time! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love the look the scarf is really neat and I like how ots twosted gives the look some texture.

    ReplyDelete
  29. What I love most about this outfit is that it is all neutral colors but is still fun and interesting! I also adore the necktie scarf. It looks adorable!

  35. That's such a cute idea! I have tons of scarves and never thought to style them this way. I'm also recently obsessed with vintage bowtie blouses (I just thrifted a bunch of them) so it's a great idea to create a similar look with more items in your wardrobe. Love it.
