There's nothing better than starting off a work week with a cheery pink and navy combo. I love the crepe finish of this skirt, so I decided to experiment and combine it with a chiffon top and a faux leather belt. Mixing up different textures is one of the easiest ways to add something different to a look, colorful or not.

And so let's get on with this week's Color Brigade! The winner of last week's feature is Cat of Team Mode rocking a red, white, grey, and pink look.   I'll have to try out this look with my red pants!

Your blazer is just gawww-gus.  The shade with the cuffed sleeves of a different color is phenomenal.

Oh my gosh Kileen, I love your shoes! There's something about suede and mary-janes that go so well together. It's too high for me though, so I will look forward to you wearing them in the future!

Kileen said... [Reply]

They are pretty tall, which is why I have to be careful about how I wear them. But I absolutely love them! :)

I love that leather belt - it just made this whole outfit for me, a perfect example of the power of accessories!

This is so funny- I tried both that blouse and blazer on recently. For some reason the top sat really weird on me, but it's so flattering on you! And I love that blazer (was thinking about it in blue) but I think you can only wear it open right? I seem to remember that when I tried buttoning it it was all big and weird fitting

that blazer is gorgeous. i love that it has the contrast lining/cuffs.

I love the winner's colour combo!  I've always thought about your Colour Brigade and wondered if I should join. You probably know by now I rarely wear a bunch of colours at once, but I guess black counts right? LOL My latest post gold + black + nude ...

Kileen said... [Reply]

i agree!! love the orange contrast with the cuffed sleeves. :)

Kileen said... [Reply]

you should definitely submit your latest outfit post to the Color Brigade, especially cause i'm in love with every piece of it. and black totally counts. :)

Kileen said... [Reply]

the blazer is a bit big on me, which is why i almost always wear it with the sleeves cuffed and with it unbuttoned. otherwise it looks all boxy and unflattering...not cute. :)

Kileen said... [Reply]

thank you, Cess! these shoes are one of my faves too!

SkippySays said... [Reply]

Yup, that was my problem too...but seeing you rock it is making me think maybe I could make it work :)

I love love the orange cuffs on your blazer. And the bow belt is so cute and brings a touch of edge to the outfit.

I freaking love that pink blazer! Want please..LOL

Kileen said... [Reply]

the blazer will probably be too big on you as it's even a bit big on me. i never wear it buttoned up as it looks kinda boxy and the sleeves are too long (which is why they're always cuffed). but i love the pink color too much so i bought it anyways. :)

That skirt and those pumps are ki-ller.  Great outfit, Kileen!

I saw an E&J jacket at TJMaxx for $40 (sadly I didn't like it).  It's very hit or miss, but they definitely get some good brands.

Kileen said... [Reply]

i agree completely! i also saw a cute military jacket at TJMaxx the last time i was there but unfortunately it didn't fit... the deals are unbeatable though and i love that the styles are actually in season!

Rama said... [Reply]

Kileen!! I just love your styling!

Kileen said... [Reply]
