I had planned out a completely different outfit for today before I went to bed last night.  But when I tried it on this morning, it kinda seemed blah on me so I decided to do some last minute switch-ups.  I saw this skirt that I had bought a few months ago on summer clearance from Urban Outfitters for $10 (yeah, beat that Forever 21!) and decided it was time to bring it out already.  The trouble with the skirt though it that it's kinda a weird industrial gray color.  Like putty.  And in the wrong light, it actually looks like a seafoam green.  But since I can't be indecisive in the mornings or else I would never make it to work on time, I decided to just go with the original planned shirt.  I'm not sure if it really goes, but I think it kinda worked.  And at least in the wrong light, I am wearing green in honor of St. Pattys.  What more could you ask for right? 

Maybe I should go drink a Guinness to celebrate.  If only I didn't think beer tasted gross...  :)

  14. Great deal with the skirt, I love when Urban has those crazy markdowns. Lovely outfit!! :)

    ps. I had beer once and couldn't get the nasty taste out of my mouth so it's a NO-GO for me.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I agree - beer is awful and hurts the figure! Haha. So why bother wasting calories on something that doesn't taste good. I kinda like the skirt actually...surprised about the color...it looks grey to me.

    ReplyDelete
  16. The skirt is really cute. You can't tell it is a weird color in the pics. I want it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I really like it, and it looks fresh together.

  18. Oooh I love that skirt! and really? seafoam? It looks grey to me :)

    and beer IS gross. fruity cocktails for me please :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. yeah, it's really a grey color in natural daylight. but somehow fluorescent
    lighting made it look kinda seafoamy green...

    ReplyDelete
  20. I also totally think beer tastes gross! That's why I just drink cocktails or wine coolers or white/blush wine. :) The only good beer I've had is a Stella Artois. But between that and any other cocktail, I'd rather have the cocktails...

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think it definitely goes and looks great!! The skirt is such a nice fit on you, and that blue color is beautiful with your hair and skin tone.

  22. you sneaker! you snuck turquoise and probably argued it to be "green." sneaker! and I don't mean the shoe type. I mean the sneaky type. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love this outfit. I think the skirt looks awesome with the top. I can't imagine it looking seafoam green, but either way, it would still be cute.

    ReplyDelete
  24. i can't drink beer either *bleh* i love your shoes!! you always have the cutest pumps!

    ReplyDelete
  25. now THAT is a gorgeous skirt! i think you pull of gray very well! hope yall had a good st. patty's day ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haha, it was actually the skirt that kinda looked a weird seafoam green under the fluorescent light. Definitely not intended, lol.

  31. Cute outfit! Love the shoes and watch! I just went out and bought myself a rose gold watch earlier this week, I had been searching for a good one for awhile :o)

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  32. well this is a nice last minute switch up !
    I love turquoise for this spring, you look great !

    ReplyDelete
  33. That's so weird the color comes across green under different lighting. I like the skirt and the overall outfit and the colors totally work together. Did you do anything fun for St. Paddy's Day under florescent lighting so the green was on display and festive? :-)

  34. kileen, i reallly, reallly love this outfit! love how the belt, necklace and shoes really go together! and i have also been eyeing that watch in the gold tone. i was going to purchase it from piperlime through give and get, but learned it was excluded. how do you like it?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I really like this skirt and what a deal!! It looks great paired with that skirt...That shade of gray can be tough esp for someone who loves brights but I think you created a perfect contrast with this outfit!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love this shade of blue on you! I personally enjoy beer but it's definitely not for everyone.

  39. I am absolutely LOVING this watch!! it's the "Small Runway" style so the
    watch face is 5mm smaller than their normal watch faces. it fits my wrist
    perfectly and i've gotten nothing but compliments on it since I bought it!
    i highly recommend! :)

  41. Love your heels!! & I agree with you beer to me tastes yucky! My hubby loves to kick back with a cold beer though so when he asks me to get him one I say to him "Pee Juice coming right up!" hahaha

  42. lol, that's what i think everytime too!! pee juice. :)

  43. I'm pretty sure this is better than boring old green on St. Patty's day. There should really be a seafoam holiday...

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hope you stood in the wrong light all day yesterday and looked beautifully green.
    Thanks again for all of your help last night

    ReplyDelete
  45. no problem! happy to help. :)

  50. The skirt does look industrial-ish but you totally glammed it up with a smart belt and necklace! Thanks for going different and wearing non green on St Patricks Day. Saw a girl on campus with green leggings with green shorts and a green top. She looked like spinach and I wanted to vomit.

    ReplyDelete
  51. lol, that's hilarious! no vomiting here. :)

  52. Super like! :) you are really good with this. :) you should produce a book about corporate/casual attire. :)
