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.

  21. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  22. 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!

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

  24. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  25. 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.

  26. 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!

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

  30. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete
  41. 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?

    ReplyDelete
  42. 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! ;)
