The last time I wore this shirt, I have to admit I was a bit disappointed.  Aubrey correctly pointed out that the shirt aged me 7 years.  I was actually on the verge of selling this shirt but I decided to give it one more go before giving up on it.  I decided to change it up a bit in my remix today:
  • Moved the waist sash so that it wrapped around the front instead of just staying in the back.
    I think wrapping the sash around one more time so that the bow ended up in the front gave it a more fun and playful look. 
  • Rolled up the sleeves to a 3/4 arm length.
    The shirt came with sparkly cuff links that, while really nice, do end up making the shirt a little more stiff and formal than I'd like.  Instead, I rolled up the sleeves (and hid the diamond cuff links) and made it into a more casual-looking top.     

I actually really like how the shirt looked with these few changes and hopefully it made it look less old.  The white pants give the outfit a summery vibe while the turquoise necklace and bracelet give it a little more color pop and make this look a Color Brigade candidate!

What do you guys think of the look?  Did I do a better job at restyling this shirt?

And don't forget to link up to the Color Brigade!  The most popular look from last week was Khatu with her orange, blue and gray combination (6 likes + 80 clicks!).

LOL oh Aubrey makes me laugh - 7 years?  :P  Well i think you did a great job re-styling this, I wouldn't have known how to be creative like that.  Sorry I haven't joined the color brigade in a while! Been less than inspired lately and way too busy to even take outfit pictures :(  I'm sure I'll participate in another one soon!

Kileen said... [Reply]

no worries! i totally understand about being busy! feel free to link up
any time. :)

Sewpetite Gal said... [Reply]

I say this a lot, but this combo is simply breathtaking!  The fuchsia + turquoise + white just go together so perfectly.  I also love your satchel!

Khatu said... [Reply]

talk about honesty... she doesn't hold back. lol. Good thing you didn't give up on the shirt because I love the color combo - one of my favs to wear!

Tara said... [Reply]

Awesome color combo this round Kileen...reminds me I need to pair those two colors again ASAP!

hurricanekerrie said... [Reply]

I think tying the belt on the front made a world of difference, indeed! The bow seems to cinch the waist better and you know, having a bow visible on your clothing is very youthful. :) So I agree, I like this variation better.

Kileen said... [Reply]

haha, i can always count on Aubs for her honesty. it keeps me on my toes.
and thanks for the compliment! i forgot how much i really love the color
too. :)

Cee said... [Reply]

The morning glow in your first pic - LOVE! I'm having a hard time duplicating it lately. The sun must not be at the correct height that goes with my camera settings. Yes, that's what I'll blame it on :)

With the sash tied around the front, you look like you've lost 7 years :) Great outfit, Kileen!

Cecilia Oviedo said... [Reply]

You look absolutely stunning, these pictures are amazing, the colors are awesome!

I think you did a great job!! Good thing you kept it cause now it looks fabulous! That color looks amazing on you. Great outfit!

Kileen said... [Reply]

Thanks! I was actually really surprised I was able to get the lens flare in the first pic. I totally lucked out with that one! I couldn't duplicate it if I tried! lol.


ilene said... [Reply]

great combo yet again! that necklace is just perfect!!

shinyprettythings said... [Reply]

that shirt looks great on you this time! that's a very well tied bow I must say lol so perfect! hahaha

Reader said... [Reply]

I think you look great in the top either way and I can't believe that one negative (and tactless) comment about it the first time you wore it would overshadow the many positive comments that you got.  Keep the top and wear it either way - it looks great! 

Caroline Ikeji said... [Reply]

i love the purple on white!! that shirt is fabulous!!

Sophie - Country Girl said... [Reply]

I used your belt knot tutorial in this weeks colour brigade submission! I love your necklace, I really need a statement piece like this 

Tigerlily said... [Reply]

I love the color combo on this outfit! I never knew that purple, white and turquoise could go together so beautifully! Love this whole look :D


Melissa said... [Reply]

I am SO glad you found a fresh way to wear that top because the color is absolutely stunning on you! And you are making me pine for white pants. You look beautiful!

Cel said... [Reply]

I really love how you styled it this time around! The bow in the front definitely makes a big difference. And all the colours just go Pow! Bright and fun.

kimchi girl said... [Reply]

LOL to Aubs and her honesty! =P

looking radiant in that morning sunshine Kileen!  your "take two" on this top is GORGEOUS.  it goes to show that if you have the right amount of creativity, you can make anything look simply amazing.  great job! :)

IvonneStacy said... [Reply]

LOVE this outfit! The color of the top and the necklace compliment each other perfectly!

Really Petite said... [Reply]

I like the purple and turquoise together- so pretty!

Ping said... [Reply]

kileen-- i like how you wore purple shirt this time. looks great paired with the white jeans and torquoise necklace. very sophisticated but modern. beautiful pics!

Kileen said... [Reply]

great job! i love the hot pink belt and i'm glad the tutorial was helpful!

Kileen said... [Reply]

thanks, Ping! :)

Kileen said... [Reply]

i agree. thanks so much! :)

eclecticflair said... [Reply]

Oh wow, I love the changes that you made! It look s o much better now!

AUBREY said... [Reply]

baahaha.  I'm too much at times.  I went back and read my comment; I should've made suggestions.  and the 2 suggestions I would've made are the exact solutions that you applied here (noted in your bullet points).  I almost didn't recognize the shirt.  To echo hurricanekellie, tying the bow in the front not only makes this shirt more youthful, but it cinches your waist, making it less boxy than it appeared last time.  Furthermore, I am always a fan when you keep your outfits clean & simple (kileen style of course) and you've done a great job here with the bold turquoise jewelry (to keep w/the color brigade requirements) but kept it sleek w/skinny white jeans.  I'd definitely say second time around is much better.  Sry if I made you feel you should've gotten rid of it; certainly not my intention.  Bravo my dear!

Cynthia C. M. said... [Reply]

I don't know about 7 years, but the original look wasn't that great.  Love the white pants, too.  I'm still trying to find the perfect pair of full length white pants.  I have a pair of cropped ones right now and several ones in grey...

Kileen said... [Reply]

lol, i't all good.  i appreciate your comments and it really does make me think twice about how i style things.  your suggestions are always so helpful!  i'm glad you think it's better the second time around too.  i'm glad i did keep the shirt.  thanks, Aubs!

Kyrad764 said... [Reply]

I love your outfit. In fact I  am going to try to recreate with items from my own closet. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

Kileen said... [Reply]

Yay!! Feel free to post you're inspired look on my Facebook wall. I'd love to see!! :)


Christie said... [Reply]

Good job with the restyle! Definitely a more flattering fit. Seven years made me laugh. It's such a random number. :-) Also, this is my first time participating in the Color Brigade (I've been meaning to participate for a while and just now got around to it). 

Spinning Threads said... [Reply]

Kileen, so sorry I accidentally didn't title my picture right and I couldn't figure out how to go back and fix it.  I apologize for the mess up.  But thanks for the link up!  I love bright colors and participating in the color brigade!


Kileen said... [Reply]

not a problem.  i fixed it up for ya!  :)  love the primary colors too, btw!  :)

Kileen said... [Reply]

yay, thanks for linking up, Christie!!  i'm loving your remix and i'll have to try something similar with my mustard skirt!  :)

Charis S said... [Reply]

EVERYTHING about this outfit is my FAVE! Bright colored blouse, the statement necklace and white jeans for the just POPS!

Kileen said... [Reply]

I'm totally keeping the shirt and love how the outfit turned out today. I don't mind negative comments and I actually find Aubrey's comments really helpful! I appreciate the honesty. :)

And I think I have pretty tough skin (and an working in getting a little tougher) so I try not to let these things get to me.
