Just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean that I can’t wear bright colors! I love this bright melon tulip skirt but did find it somewhat hard to style at first. Since it is so poofy, I usually opted for fitted tops that would help balance out the volume on the bottom. But, today I felt adventurous and went with an over-sized top and surprisingly enough, it actually kinda worked!
I love how the v-shape of the top creates an subtle hourglass shape with the poofed out skirt. And while the top and skirt didn’t have any similar colors to create a pairing, I luckily had a blue-toned skinny belt that was the perfect accessory to tie everything together.

omg i totally want that color block shirt!! i haven't shopped at express in forever but looks like i must make a trip there!!!
This is such a great color combination; the colors of the top flows so nicely into the skirt that it could've worked as a dress. Nice job, Kileen!
Yes, definitely!! This shirt looks so much better worn than on the hanger. The colors are beautiful!
Aww thanks Cee!
in love with your top, kileen!!! it's sooo gorgeous!! the colors are so lovely.
Gorgeous color combo!! Wow!!
I agree…the blue belt was a great choice!!
