To contrast my bright outfit from yesterday, I went with an outfit that was more subdued and neutral today.  I did a bit of color mixing using colors that are near each other on the color wheel and love how the coral accessories jazzed up the look!

Meanwhile, let me know if you guys have any suggestions on if you would like any changes to the Color Brigade link up.  We've gone 20 weeks already (that's 5 months, wow!) and I've been continuously inspired by your amazing combinations!  But given that it's been that long, would you like to see anything different with the weekly link-up?  I'm open to suggestions so please let me know!

Do link-up your outfit below and join the Color Brigade!

I've never tried this color combination before. You definitely stir the pot with Color Brigade! :) Who knew mustard goes well with pink?

I had been MIA for a little while. Did you recently add the pronunciation guide for your name? I totally thought it was a short "I" sound like the town in Texas (or is that a long "I"?) Thanks for mentioning because I like to pronounce names correctly!

I'm glad to be back with the brigade!

I did recently add the pronunciation cause I realized people would think it
was pronounced like the town. It is a long "i". :)

that mustard skirt is bold, it seems to look great every way you wear it. Far more versatile than I would have thought!

very stylish and beautiful! xoxooo

Sandy a la Mode said... [Reply]

oh kileen! i just LOVE how you tied your belt!!

I'm so jealous you pull off the bronzed ochre color so well. It matched my yellow-tan skin too closely :( haha. 

5 months sure went by fast. If you feel the challenge has gotten stale, I think it'd be fun to change it up. I'm not sure how many ways there is to create a theme (ie, complementary colors only?) and how much work it would take to let people know in advance. I also wouldn't mind if color brigade stays the way it is :)

Can't wait to get my necklace in the mail! Thanks again for the Enviius invite :)  You look beautiful as always Kileen!  The J.Crew skirts are my favorites on you!

Kileen said... [Reply]

size is perfect!

Kileen said... [Reply]

cool colors

Jessy said... [Reply]

I like how you spiced up an otherwise "boring" outfit with the matching belt & necklace. Those shoes are sooo adorable!

AppleSidra said... [Reply]

I do love the fun colors, and how you work bold color into an office-friendly outfit. I typically go safe and for work, wear black, brown, or gray. =P But I love this look and it's inspiring to see something really feminine and fun still work well into corporate!

There is a lot of pink in this color brigade, must be the color of the week

Loving your skirt


Sewpetite Gal said... [Reply]
