Remember how I asked for some tips on how to style this skirt the last time I wore it? Well, I took your advice and loved the results! I ditched the sash belt that came with the skirt and opted for a simple skinny belt instead. I definitely balances out the fluffiness of the balloon skirt. And a more fitted top? Check! I picked up this top at The Limited last weekend during their 40% off sale and love how the soft sheer fabric that hugs in all the right places.
Adrian and I decided to catch the sunset after work today and it was simply breathtaking. Of course this was only after we took the wrong exit off the highway and ended up spending twice as much time in the ghetto first. You know what they say — it’s all about the journey right? 😉

What's wrong with the ghetto? 🙂 Anyhow, your outfit looks very lovely. Love the blouse, and the bubble skirt is very nice. Of course, it wouldn't be that Kileen touch without a lovely pair of platform high-heels to top things off. Great outfit!
Oh I'm cool with the ghetto. I just get nervous when everyone's eyeing my car as I drive by like they want it, lol.

That color and the detailing on that top looks gorgeous on you. Sorry about you being lost…my hubby and I tend to get into more adventures than expected whenever we go somewhere too. (we got completely lost in the city. we drove around for an hour and half before asking for directions!) Ahh..the things we do for love.
love the colors together here as well
amazing pics kileen. i just can't believe this is self photography.
You look lovely, Kileen…so summery and chic! Beautiful!

This looks lovely Kileen! You always make the most interesting pieces work so well!
Oh the pics from this post are courtesy of Adrian (little disclaimer at the bottom)! I could never take these angles on my own. 🙂
GORGEOUS photos Kileen, I love the lighting and the background. Well worth venturing through the ghettos, imo.
Really Petite says
I love looking at your pics Kileen!!! Love the bubble skirt!
OMG, what a difference. I can't believe this is the same skirt. Great styling, seriously. And I absolutely love the top you pair it with. Nice job, Kileen. Oh, the pictures are gorgeous. You look lovely as usual. 🙂 Sunset is worth all the hard work, including getting lost. lol
OOh this whole outfit and photoshoot is darling! The background is so beautiful, as is this top with the skirt. You definitely found a great way to wear this skirt. I think it was a good idea to use the skinny belt with it to balance the heavy bottom of the bubble skirt.
Urban Jungle Fashion says
WOW! You REALLY did it with this one girl! Amazing look. Beautiful setting!
These photos literally took my breath away. You look so gorgeous almost like in a dream. 🙂

Wow the look you got from ditching the belt made it lot more streamlined. I really like it without the sash on you.
