It’s week three of the ModCloth Spring Fever Blogger Challenge! This week, we were asked to style the Paisley Panache Scarf. I didn’t have much on hand, so I did another skirt-as-dress outfit. I wouldn’t normally pair those shoes with the outfit but I have managed to ruin three pairs of shoes (including the ones in these pictures, actually…the heel on one of them broke). Slim pickings when you’re living out of a suitcase. But did you notice I’m not wearing sleeves? That is a huge deal for me. HUGE.

Check out the ModLife blog to see how each of us (Krystal, Tieka, Aya, and I) styled the scarf. Please let us know whose style is your favorite by voting for your favorite look!

Outfit Details:

Paisley Panache Scarf – courtesy of ModCloth
dress – skirt, thrifted
belt – thrifted
shoes – Alice & Olivia for Payless
bag – borrowed from Hourglass Consignment, my mom’s store
cuff – courtesy of LOFT and Lucky Mag
kitty – Aqua

Love love and kitty kisses,
Keiko Lynn

p.s. Thank you, Tessa, for taking all of my pictures and being such a good sport!

    Lovely outfit, and I just love the way you've used the scarf. I want that scarf now!

  2. Fabiola "Fab" says: April 19, 201011:02 pm

    Wow yellow looks awsome on you! goreous scarf as well.

  3. Meghan V. says: April 19, 201011:05 pm

    I love how you paired the scarf, I really want it now. These photos are really pretty too!

  4. rischa says: April 19, 201011:06 pm

    Those colours look great together, and you should show off your arms more often – they look hot!

    And accessorising with a cat is essential πŸ˜‰

  5. Sidewalk Chalk says: April 19, 201011:09 pm

    I love the color palette in this outfit. The yellow looks amazing!

  6. Becca Jane says: April 19, 201011:12 pm

    I love the way you've styled this – the dress looks lovely with the colours of the scarf!

  7. Jenna says: April 19, 201011:19 pm

    I love it! Makes me long for summer!

  8. Keira says: April 19, 201011:28 pm

    So pretty and perfect for spring! I never would have thought to pair this gorgeous scarf with a gold dress, but it's amazing together! And with the navy bag, I mean… :)

  9. Trishna says: April 19, 201011:38 pm

    I absolutely love your styling. The yellow skirt as dress is so gorgeous. And I am surprised, not because you are wearing sleeveless but because why don;t you usually. You have the most pristine, snow white arms I have ever seen. :)I personally would have done anything for them.


  10. Charmalade says: April 20, 201012:08 am

    All four of you are lovely ladies (duh, I say that politely), but I definitely voted for you this week because I'm a huge sucker for bright colors that play off of each other– aka your outfit! It's wonderful to me that you paired bright sunshine yellow with a more subdued purple. And pshhh you were worried about your arms this whole time? They're so cute, so pale and whatnot (haha, like mine).

    But your best accessory may be your cat. πŸ˜€

    I really really love this color combination!

  14. Clothes Coquette says: April 20, 201012:50 am

    The scarf looks absolutely amazing with the dress! I would never think to put those colors together, but they compliment each other very well.

  15. Lucy Marmalade says: April 20, 20101:02 am

    You win! Yours is my favorite outfit this week by far. Lovely yellow dress, lovely scarf.

  16. HAL says: April 20, 20101:24 am

  17. Lucia says: April 20, 20101:30 am

    you look lovely! The dress is so nice and the scarf looks perfect with it :)

  18. Leilani says: April 20, 20101:44 am

    The skirt works well as a mini dress, I love the golden yellow with the scarf. Usually I avoid longer skirts in thrift stores but will be on the lookout for some to wear as dresses this summer.

  19. calivintage says: April 20, 20101:48 am

    hey lovely, i should really leaving comments more often, but i had to take a moment today to tell you that you look awesome. the vivid colors are great. i totes voted for you. πŸ˜‰

  27. Midwest Mayhem says: April 20, 20102:43 am

    Love the use of contrasting colors here. Also, what a cute kitty!

  28. ShoesForDessert says: April 20, 20103:12 am

    I love how you pulled the yellow out of the scarf – it makes it stand out that much better!

  29. Sydney says: April 20, 20103:13 am

    I love the colors in this, and I like that the scarf kind of hides the strapless-ness of the dress! And in regards to your tweet about people commenting on your weight, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Seriously. You don't need to be any smaller or bigger, you are lovely just the way you are!

  30. Tieka, Selective Potential says: April 20, 20103:17 am

    Perfect mixing, Keiko! The colors are darling – and I love your bag! So cute how you can borrow things from your Mom's shop!

  31. Fia says: April 20, 20103:26 am

    I love it! The colors are great.

  32. Krameymartin says: April 20, 20104:20 am

    Love that scarf with the yellow and black!

  33. Marian says: April 20, 20105:07 am

    Your outfit is adorable with pops of bright colour! I rikey!

    Why don't you like wearing sleeveless tops/ dresses? Your shoulders + arms look nice in these photos :)

  34. Is β™₯ La 5th con Bleecker st. says: April 20, 20106:28 am

  51. neesh says: April 20, 20104:29 pm

    Hi Keiko, I just found your blog this morning through ModCloth, (love that site!). I don't actually know you but when i saw your face it looked so familiar- (this is going to sound creepy, but i swear it's not!) i realized I had your picture saved on my computer since AGES ago when I had MySpace in High School. i saved your photo when i ran across your clothing page on MySpace bc i loved your haircut! I took it to the salon with me about 6 years ago! funny world. You had much longer hair back then, but the short style suits you too. I have long black hair and I'm Asian and Floridian too! Love your blog, your style and your talent.

  52. elisaveera says: April 20, 20106:11 pm

    Hi Keiko! I'll just HAVE to ask- how did you do that hairdo? You look gorgeous as ever. And you should not be afraid to show off your arms. Really.

  53. Cassandra Marie says: April 20, 20106:18 pm

    I think you are basically kicking ass in this competition lol! All the outfits you have put together for this have been perfect!

  54. Fabulocity in Amish Country says: April 20, 20106:18 pm

  55. Mittens says: April 20, 20106:28 pm

    That's such a pretty, summery outfit!

    You're absolutely stunning. I'm quite envious of your hair – it's gorgeous!

  56. PhotoPuddle says: April 20, 20106:37 pm

    What a great scarf. Looks fab with the yellow.

  57. daisymay says: April 20, 20107:30 pm

  65. MOUSEVOX VINTAGE says: April 21, 20102:39 pm

    This is great!

    I am so hard on shoes myself. I don't know if it's that I'm inherently clumsy or what, but I always manage to break a heel or two at least once or twice a year.

  66. megannielsen says: April 21, 20104:59 pm

    I love this!! that yellow dress is so perfect with the purple

  67. Sandra - If it comes in pink says: April 21, 20105:32 pm

  68. brooke says: April 21, 20106:16 pm

  69. Mallory says: April 21, 20106:24 pm

    You should go without sleeves more often- you look amazing! :) That scarf is wonderful.

  70. Bad Taste Toast says: April 21, 20108:02 pm

    I feel like your blog is turning more into advertisement, it makes me a little sad:( I still adore you and your style, but a little disappointed in the direction it's going. No biggie.

    Hi Keiko,

    Just love that yellow dress, just such a happy colour don't you think? I've got a cardigan in the same colour.

    Love your style by the way – very inspirational :)
