What better way of starting off the week than with colored pants? I have quite a few in my collection now (red, cobalt, olive, mustard) but have to say that the mustard pair is probably one of my favorites right now. Just like every girl wants to be the "perfect combination of sexy and cute" {thanks Crazy Stupid Love}, every article of clothing should be the perfect combination of professional and stylish. These pants are just that.

And of course, all this color was also perfect for the Color Brigade day!  The winner of last week's feature is Erin of Simply Just Lovely rocking a pink, white, grey, and black.  I'm totally gonna have to steal this look sometime!

That is the perfect color combination! I love the mustard pants, such a great, versatile color. I like my mustard-y cords, but they're definitely lacking in the sexy department!!

I love when EBEW fits in with your Color Brigade feature. This is a great use of color (of course, you are known for your great use of color).
Also, I am still dying to see that movie, and that reference reminded me to see where it is playing.

Kileen said... [Reply]

oh you HAVE to see this movie!!  it's so much better than i was expecting and i had already heard great things about it!

Danielle Grigsby said... [Reply]

Very classic. The white jacket and satchel really freshen the look.

Love from Oregon USA,

I may have to try out the mustard pants...I just bought a mustard blazer for fall!  I love how you paired it with the navy bow front blouse and seriously in the 100+ degree heat, how is it that your skin looks still so fresh and matte.  If this were me, we'd have shiny city going on!

Jemappelleshen said... [Reply]

I participated in EBEW too and I came across your link! I love the colored pants you choose, a nice departure from the bright colors, love the fall color pallet.

Kileen said... [Reply]

oh, i think it helps that i have naturally very dry skin, but i also use the Stila face primer which helps keep everything from melting off!

H&K Style Journey said... [Reply]

This is a perfect combination! Love the mustard pants and the navy top. You are always so chic and stylish!

Vi said... [Reply]

Pheobe at pballoonjournal2 said... [Reply]

Looove the color combination of the mustard and the royal blue. It's like classic with a little bit of a twist. Plus that bow blouse is absolutely insane--can't get over how great it looks!

It's the perfect combination indeed. I love the mustard and navy combination. I  stopped by H&M today to try on those pants but my size wasn't available anymore :(

Kileen said... [Reply]

Aww that's too bad they ran out but it's available online thru Elle (free ship too) link is included on the post (size 2 was available earlier today). :)

Terri said... [Reply]

Whoa, this is the most SOPHISTICATED look of all the EBEW "colored pant" entries I've seen today.  Well done.

Kileen said... [Reply]

awww, thank you!! i'm so flattered. :)

Frannie Pantz said... [Reply]

OMGosh I am loving the deep blue and mustard!  This is a great and stylish look.  I'm gonna have to check out the color brigade!  What a great idea!  Love this look on the reals. 

Caroline Goldingham said... [Reply]

LOVE the mustard pants!  I have a new yellow skirt I can't wait to wear to work

Kimbercrafts said... [Reply]

I love this outfit! Mustard and navy is one of my favorite color combinations.

Really Petite said... [Reply]

LOL bootylicious! love it! And I like how you paired navy with mustard- great color combo!

Kileen said... [Reply]

oooh, very exciting!! i can't wait for the weather to get cooler so i can wear my mustard skirt too! :)

Courtney said... [Reply]

Kileen I LOVE this blouse you are wearing... I wish I could find one like this somewhere! I have been looking for ages. I like the one you linked but wish it had a higher bow like yours. Maybe I'm being too picky?

Kileen said... [Reply]

I like the higher bow too myself but I think each one has it's different styling options. The ASOS one I linked might be able to be tied higher and still look ok. There's also a 20% off deal with HAPPYLFW right now on regularly priced items on ASOS! ;)
