Smitten


I felt like I was standing in a tornado. 



Macy's Plastic Brand Jean Jacket - S (I'm getting the sleeves altered) (similar)
J. Crew Double Serge Sequin Skirt in Bronzed Ochre - 00P / $66.68 (buy)
Bakers Blue Suede Pumps - 5 (super old) (similar)
Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 (gifted from parents) (similar)

I was a little worried about this skirt.  I mean, when does yellow look good against yellow?  But, I figure since the mustard cardigan worked out, maybe this skirt would be ok too.  I have to admit though, even if the color is a little off, I would probably still be wearing the heck outta this skirt.  I'm totally smitten with it (I'm actually quite the glutton and have this skirt in 3 colors...  *guilty*).

Have I told you guys that my wedding countdown has officially begun?  It's 64 days and counting.  Today I went for a menu tasting with our caterer.  I kinda felt like a judge on Iron Chef as I kept on getting asked about every little detail about what I was eating.  I never knew the detail to which you could customize a wedding menu!  At one point I was sitting at the table going over just how much pepper to put into the Togarishi Ahi Seared Tuna sauce and whether or not we wanted to enhance the spicy jalapeno after bite or bring out the sweet chili high notes.  I mean, I had to pretend like I was a real foodie and knew what I was talking about!  At least the menu is finally decided.  One more thing I can cross of my (never-ending) list.

Adrian left earlier today for his bachelor party weekend in Vegas.  I just watched three episodes of Glee (I think we all know I'm addicted already) and am blogging on a Friday night.  Surrounded by my cats.  I might sound like an old maid, but it's an awesome night for me.  And at least I'm getting married soon too.  :)

  1. I love that skirt too, and I can't blame you for getting it in three colors! The bright dahlia is my fave, but this yellow is a close second. I love all the styling possibilities!

  2. I just got that skirt in the mail today! Unfortunately, they only had a size 0 which didn't fit me. Boo-hoo. Looks beautiful on you!

  3. What are you talking about, I love this skirt color (and all the other colors of this skirt!). I think it looks great! :) That would be taxing, having to get down to every little detail of food. I mean, I'll just want to eat!

    How do you like Glee so far? I liked the first season, this new season, not so much...

  7. I think the skirt looks great on you. Your wedding is practically two months away, that is so exciting! I hope everything goes flawlessly. Also, my boyfriend is a chef, and I'm scared for when we get married. Were not engaged yet, or anything. But, he is so picky with his food.

  8. Wow, 64 days! that's super soon!

    I really really really love this skirt. I saw a mustard colored skirt from Anthro that I really like (it's a more poofy skirt, not pencil skirt) and I'm going to attempt to make one myself after I find the perfect fabric :) I just need to stop being lazy.

  21. yes, wedding pictures will be posted for sure! :)

  22. Let the countdown begin! Cee, Elle, and I were chatting about how we peruse through wedding gowns. LOL. So can we get a glimpse of The Dress or does your finance read your blog?

    I LOVE that color on you. I also agree it will get a lot of wear as much as your other Jcrew skirts. I bought the grey one and I'm in love as well. I wish I had your hips than I wouldn't be having problems with the fit. =,=

  23. The fiancé does read my blog (as do some of our mutual friends) so I won't post pics of it until after the wedding. But I'm getting engagement photos done in 2 weeks and will port those once I have them. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Haha! Kileen, you're a pale yellow, so no worries about the skirt blending in. On me though, that might be another story. I really like this outfit and really want a double serge skirt of my own!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I *adore* this outfit--I love the navy+mustard combo...it looks lovely! Hope you enjoyed being surrounded by your kitties...I feel like an old maid sometimes too when I have ours flanking me on the couch ;) yay for a wedding countdown too...I had a month to go at this time last year and it went by so quickly! enjoy every minute! xoxo {av}

  27. Ah I cant wait to get my skirt!! I have to exchange it because it was too big for me, the lady that I talked to at JCrew online tolld me I need a 6P apparently I can fit another person with me in that skirt, so im opt out to get the 4P I'm crossing my finger that they will send me the exchange ASAP. I so missed the fuschsia one, I really want what color, and apparently this color look good on you, I was imagining the same thing when you told me but since the color is more mustard its actually makes your skin looks brighter!!

  29. oh i'm glad that you were at least able to get your size in the bronzed
    ochre color. i think since the yellow is darker, it works on asian skin
    tones. can't wait to see you in yours!

  30. Glee is life. You should totally be addicted, I've got 4 of the soundtracks.

    I keep falling in love with this skirt whenever I see it! I really need to make my way to a J.Crew, which is currently probably a minimum 5 hour plane ride away. No fun :(

  31. How exciting! Wedding planning can be so much fun! It can get pretty stressful toward the end though, so just make sure to make time for yourself and take a deep breath if you start feeling overwhelmed. Everything is going to be great. :)

    I love this look! That top is adorable and I think that shade of yellow looks great on you!

  32. I love that skirt too. You look great.

  33. I am absolutely in love with that skirt. The color is amazing, and I'm pretty sure just including that piece in an outfit makes it great! The belt looks great paired with it!

  34. Wow, 64 days left! You must be sooo excited!

    I know this J. Crew skirt was one of your most expensive expenditures in Feb, but it is so worth it! The color and fit are perfection.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am so jealous that you have that skirt in 3 colors :) The bachelor party in Vegas sounds super fun. Your wedding day will be here before you know it. You're doing such a great job planning your wedding and I can't believe you're able to blog every day too.

  36. I love the added denim...makes it a little more casual looking. : ) And I can't WAIT to see wedding photos...it's so exciting, Kileen! Congrats again :D

  37. I am debating on if I should spend the money to alter this skirt...ah...can't decide!!! I just want to make sure I will wear it often to get my money's worth...what do you think Kileen? Should I? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  38. i think this skirt is a really versatile color so it shouldn't be a problem
    to get lots of outfits out of it. but it's up to you as far as whether you
    feel comfortable wearing this color. i think it would look great on your
    skintone! i would say yes. but ultimately it's your call. :)

  39. I swear you age like ten years when you get married. :D Caleb and I have spent many Friday nights eating pizza and catching up on shows on Hulu with our little pup sitting on one of our laps. Not to mention that Caleb usually falls asleep on the couch before 10 o'clock, haha.
