Michael Kors “Small Runway” Rose Gold Watch (MK5430) – $127 (buy)
Little Fluff Stuff Eco Friendly Felt Flower Bib – $19.99 (buy)
Color blocking and the Color Brigade seem to go hand in hand (aren’t you glad this is a spring trend?). A mix I’ve seen a lot of this spring is the pairing of pink and orange. It’s bright, cheery, and a color combination that will get you going in the mornings for sure!
And if you’re thinking this is a bit too bright, you can always tone it down by layering on a simple black blazer too. If I hadn’t forgotten to set my alarm last night before going to bed, I probably would’ve done the same. Instead, I was scrambling out the door and even managed to set off my house alarm when I went outside to take outfit pictures. Yep, Happy Monday. 🙂
So after seeing my orange (even though it looks red in the pictures), fuchsia, and white mix, now it’s your turn! Link up your colorful outfits below.
Note: feel free to link up any outfit you wore in the past week or an
outfit that you’ll be wearing later this week — it doesn’t have to be
something you actually wore today!

P.S. Thank you everyone who helped me justify keeping two Michael Kors watches in yesterday’s post, but the pending sale from Sunday went through and have a nice buffer of $75 for my March budget now in case I get tempted with any spring sales. 🙂

That watch is gorgeous! And dare I say, timeless! (Aren't I punny?)
Love the red + purple combo. Very unique and definitely colorful!
This color combination is perfect. I'm glad you woke up late this morning because I think a black blazer would detract from the overall feel 🙂
that is a nice watch!

Was reading about it on twitter yesterday
Finally hooked up with the color brigade
Have been wanting to for awhile now and finally got it all together
OOOO pretty watch! I also like your outfit and am SOOO JEALOUS that the j. crew skirt fits you so well! I really like the color combo and don't find it too bright at all! 🙂
I absolutely love the color blocking and as much as some people are against pink/red, I personally LOVE the combo!
Courtney Thomas says
I love the purple and red together! And the watch is really nice – I need to invest in a good quality/fashionable watch like yours.

So I have sad story….remember how much I want those Jcrew skirt that you are wearing right now and I have to return it because the sales person said that I had to wear size 6P to get the size that I want? I end up returning it in exchange of smaller size because 6 was too big for me…So now when I asked them where is my skirt, they said they sold out the 4P which is the size that I wanted and they refunded my money 🙁 So now I'm looking at your picture and drooling over your skirt LOL
But the awesome part was when I want this skirt is either JCrew or Kate Spade I opt out for Jcrew because its a lot cheaper, since cant get my hand on them I end up purchasing the Kate Spade one with 50% off on Neiman Marcus last call LOL its still twice as Jcrew but its worth it, I love the color……
Enough me rambling I love your color choice here I dont know that fuchsia and red goes so well together, I thought they would wash off the color great color brigade thinking!!
aww i'm so sad that J. Crew sold out of your size but I guess it worked out
because you were able to get the Kate Spade you really wanted at Neiman
Marcus Last Call! I can't wait to see you rock the skirt!
Angga Heinrich says
I know, I think my size is so popular in JCrew, but it all turns out ok, its just that that means I'm almost $100 over my budget this march, I want to count them towards my february purchase but I cant lol oh well…I need to do better in April
lol, $200 is so hard!! especially cause you were spending like i was at
around $400. 🙂 i say go to $300/month first and slowly work your way
down. there's always temptation every month!
Angga Heinrich says
LOL I know it is HARD!! I think I might get them back out in April!! I was waaaaayyy to ambitious!!!!
AMAZING OUTFIT REALLY LOVE YOUR COLOUR COMBO!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love love love the outfit Kileen! And that watch is TO DIE!!

I wish I could pull off heels like that, but I simply was not blessed with the feet or endurance to wear them! I'm always impressed if someone can sport stilettos like you.
Love the bold colors! Great outfit!
