Scarf, Monopoly, and Disqus





Cami: Gap Basic Bra Cami - XS / $20 (buy)
Scarf: LOFT  $34 (similar)
Shoes: Forever 21 Braided Pumps - 6 / $24 (similar)
Purse: Louis Vuitton Ellipse (gifted from parents)

I'm taking advantage of the slightly cooler temperatures these past couple of days to wear the last bits of my winter wardrobe.  And by winter wardrobe, I mean long-sleeve knits and scarves (there's a reason I live in Texas!). This scarf has been sitting in my closet since Christmas and it's about time that it was given some time to shine.

In non-fashion news, I have a secret to share with you guys.  I'm a sucker for board games and collecting things.  Every spring, Albertsons has a Monopoly Game where you collect stickers every time you shop.  The stickers then go on a little board game where if you collect all the stickers for a given prize, you win the prize.  Let's just say, I was *this* close to winning a $50 gas card last year.  And so far this year, I'm halfway to winning an iPad.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the rest of the month!

You might have also noticed that I've switched my commenting system from Blogger over to Disqus.  I've heard lots of mixed reviews so I'm testing it out myself to see how it works.  Please let me know your thoughts too!

  2. Sorry Disqus didn't work out =/ It works great on Vicky's site, so I wonder what went wrong. Maybe you could look into what Jess @ stylepint uses. It looks similar to Disqus but not exactly it (unless she customized it).

    As much as I like your colorful outfits, I LOVE this neutral/muted, but never boring, look on you. More please!

  3. @Cee actually it looks like it was a system-wide problem with Disqus. they tweeted about it later: http://twitter.com/#!/disqus/status/43003652306247681

    i might give Disqus another try. we'll see. :)

  5. I've been trying to lose weight actually in preparation for my wedding! I
    haven't lost any weight but I think I've toned up a bit recently. Thanks
    for noticing! :)

  6. Love this outfit! That scarf is the perfect pop of pattern!

    I hope you win that iPad - that would be so awesome!

  7. Oooh, I hope you win the iPad! I love mine and I've only had it for two weeks. I love Monopoly too, though no one else in my family does. I'm a dork. But I don't care.

    Your scarf looks fantastic with that top. I'm glad you had the chance to wear it, because before we know it it's going to be 100 degrees out.

  14. I really like this outfit! Love the scarf!!!

  15. I love all the colors of this outfit! The scarf just adds the perfect touch! Is the sweater too big for you or is it just my eyes? I think you should try scunching (is that even a word?) up the sleeves on this cardi- it would make a huge difference. The skirt looks HOT on you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Girl...you and your amazing shoes! And I so know about trying to wear up all of your winter clothes while you can...but YAY warm weather!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. the sweater is too big on me. i bought it several years ago when it went on
    clearance and before i really paid attention to fit. even worse is that i
    bought 3 different colors of this sweater! :( and yes, i will definitely
    try the scrunching method next time! thanks for the tip.

  18. I love the heels and the colours you're wearing! Disqus is great for comment threads, but I like the overall look and feel of Blogger. Blogger really needs to step it up though, when it comes to the commenting system.

  19. Oh and one more thing: when I visit blogs with Disqus, I can't comment sometimes...which is messed up..

    ReplyDelete
  20. The print of that scarf is so lovely with the seafoam green and blue - gorgeous as always!

    ReplyDelete
  21. oh wow you change it to disqus?? let me know how it goes I also heard a lot of ggod things about it too!!!

  22. Disqus was definitely down for a while, but it's def back up now (as I'm writing this lol). I really like how the scarf goes perfectly with the sweater. Plus the earrings are a classic!

    ReplyDelete
  23. The scarf definitely looks awesome. My husband and I are playing the Monopoly game too and we are 1 sticker away from any of the prizes, like all of our categories are just missing one piece haha. Good luck trying for the iPad!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oooo Kileen! I love everything about this look. It's sooo chic... LOVE IT to pieces.

  29. actually for those commenters who disclose their email address in their
    comments, I will always email back a reply as well as post it to the blog
    post for others to see. currently, i'm actually leaning towards going back
    to blogger comments based on the problems people have reported. but i'll
    give it another day or so before making a final decision. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Great outfit! With Disqus when you reply to a comment does it give you the option to email the reply to the person as well as posting it on the wall? I thought of switching over and decided against it because people will probably not look back at that post to see if I replied to their comment, so I figured if I respond via email, it's more effective and personal. Although replying on the comment section itself is great because it creates more of blogging community. Hmm, let us know how you like it after a few weeks.

  37. I love the title of this post as they are all things I love! Monopoly is a game my family has enjoyed off and on over the years but usually just the normal board game, not the one with a chance to win things. That scarf is lovely, as is your entire outfit! And I much, much prefer commenting with Disqus over blogger :D

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love the scarf :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love the scarf....I have Disqus...usually love it..yesterday was horrible no one could leave a comment.....and its happened more than a few times...I maybe switching again..:(

  40. love your look. Can't believe this is your winter. Thats pretty much my summer! Love the matching silver belt and shoes :)

  41. ooh, love your scarf. the color palette in your outfit has a very cool and calming vibe. i'm not a fan of disqus...i spend a lot of time on my blackberry or ipad, and it's difficult to comment. but if it works for you, that's great!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love this outfit Kileen!........So jealous you have that amazing scarf from the Loft ;) Beautiful color palette as well, blues, grays and silvers, very chic!

  45. I love the monochrome look and that amazing scarf! Have you been working out? You look so small, like you've lost weight, but still fabulous!

    I love your scarf.
    But I don't love Disqus, it takes too long to comment and I don't like the long word verification. And sometimes it takes a while to load on my computer :(

  49. Yay! I think (so far) Disqus is cool in that you get to respond to each comment as you choose and not make one lump of a comment for everybody.

    Neutral and Monochromatic looks actually feel and look refreshing for color warriors like us... :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I absolutely love that scarf, you always look so great!

  51. i'm a big fan of disqus. it's what i use for my tumblr and i think it makes commenting back and forth much easier.

    p.s. love your outfit. especially the scarf. great pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love that you stuck with one color today! It is a nice mix up (even though I always ADORE your colorful outfits). Your scarf is gorgeous as well.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love your pumps! It's pretty and I agree warmers weathers do make people smile!

    ReplyDelete
  54. haha, i almost felt like i was rebelling against the Color Brigade with this outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  55. This outfit is very sweet! I love the combination of blues and silvers. Two of my all-time favorite colors! :)

    And let me know how you like Disqus! I'm getting ready to completely re-do my blog layout and I've been contemplating switching over as well.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I forgot to mention I love that game as well! I never won anything though. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love the monochromatic look you did with the blue! It looks great with the pop of the silver heels and belt.

    flower girl dresses as we know is one of the most common dress wear for little cute girls. they look really amazing and cute. This is worn on special occasions. Especially on the wedding day. Which makes the wedding day even more memorable.

    One of the common wear for little girls are flower girl dresses, for special occasions. Cheap Flower Girl Dress is one thing that every one look for. But when buying Cheap Flower Girl Dress the quality is not up to the mark. http://www.flowergirldressforl... give Cheap Flower Girl Dress without sacrificing the quality.
