This outfit combined a lot of my favorite things:  scalloped edges, red pencil skirts, and colored pumps.  I especially love how colored pumps can be the statement piece of a particular look.  My first experiment with colored pumps was actually last year when I picked up 3 pairs from Forever 21 in mustard, olive, and grey when I noticed that they were only $15 each and in a rare size 5.  Almost a year later, they're probably one of my most worn shoes to date!  And so when I noticed these teal pumps on sale on the Bakers website, I had to try them out!

These shoes {both the teal and taupe colors actually!} are now sitting happily in my closet...much to the dismay of my budget.  I'm dreading this month's budget recap already, so let's just focus on how awesome these shoes are for now.  :)

I love the colour combo, Kileen! I have no idea how you spend all day in heels that high because I would die. Props, lady.

Pretty, polished and fun! I like how that top is neutral, but the pleats give your oufits texture and interest. :)

I LOVE that scalloped jacket! So cute! Your shoes are so cute too! I just don't know how you can walk in them, haha. I would fall on my face.

Love this outfit! Those shoes are fantastic!!

Kileen said... [Reply]

Lol, I think I just love heels that much. And foot cushion insoles help a lot too. :)

Kileen said... [Reply]

Lol, lots of practicing I guess. And there aren't many hills in Dallas, which makes walking in these much easier. :)

LOVE the shoes! Let's definitely focus on how awesome they are :) Unfortunately a 5 is too big in pumps on me- I need a 4.5 at most. I can do a 5 in boots and shoes where my foot is strapped in, but not in pumps :( And I've said this before, but I really love that scalloped jacket!

Red and teal plus a scalloped hem?

I don't mind focusing on these delicious heels!  And I love the scallops too.  Great look Kileen!

Jasmine said... [Reply]

Never bought Bakers stuff... but it looks like they have some awesome pumps!  Are those suede?  I love suede shoes... and that teal is just awesome! 

Kileen said... [Reply]

they are suede and so super soft! i love them. :)

Carolyn said... [Reply]

the scallop edge on the jacket is such an adorable detail!

ki said... [Reply]

I love them and they look so good with the red! :)

Caroline Goldingham said... [Reply]

I LOVE the red and teal! I would have never thought of this, but now I have some great ideas for my own wardrobe!

Tara said... [Reply]

The shoes are pretty awesome...and you put together the perfect outfit around them :)

Angela said... [Reply]

Love the teal with the red skirt!

Kileen said... [Reply]

i agree! teal and red is such a nice combo!

Kileen said... [Reply]

these pumps have a good platform, which makes them more comfy. but there's not much cushioning so a foot cushion insole was definitely needed. i walked a good 5 blocks to and from lunch yesterday in these heels and they did work out! i think they do need a bit of breaking in though. hopefully they'll get more comfy after a few more wears. :)

Love the scalloped edge on the blazer! And the teal and red look great together, such a nice combo.

they're such a pretty color, tho! have you done a heels post recently? i love all of the colors you have! i'm still trying to get all of the basic neutrals down!

Cecilia Oviedo said... [Reply]

I have to confess that as much as I love high end shoes, shopping for shoes at stores like F21 or Charlotte Russe is so addictive!  Never thought I'd own so many loud color shoes but I do and love them, you look very chic and sophisticated, the jacket is gorgeous!

Amber said... [Reply]

Oh My Gosh!!! I would never have thought to pair teal heels with red and black, but I can't wait to try it myself - LOVE it! You have such a talent for pairing colors. Thanks for the inspiration. ;)

I am in love with the color of that skirt - it's so awesomely vibrant, and it looks great with the teal pumps. I was actually contemplating buying a pair of similarly colored pumps from Aldo just yesterday...I held myself back, but I may go back for them.

Love how you shot in the West End.  The teal pumps are a fantastic find!
