Today's Look: Blue and Yellow

Sweater and Blouse: Old Navy; Jeans: Urban Outfitters (similar); Boots: Vince Camutto; Purse: H&M; Necklace: c/o Lovelina
Frankly, I hate mustard.  Purely a ketchup kinda gal.  And pickles?  Don't even go there.  But when it comes to pants, anything goes.  Originally, I paired the sweater and top with plain ole blue jeans but it just didn't have that pop factor I was looking for.  Sure, it felt classic, but ho-hum.  Solution?  Throw on a pair of colored jeans and we're feeling much better.  Besides, it's kinda like I'm walking on sunshine on this cloudy day.

Don't you love how a single item of clothing can change an entire outfit? Or your entire outlook on a day for that matter?

And now I have "Walking on Sunshine (whoooaaa)" stuck in my head. There are definitely worse things.

The Powder Room said...

gaaahhh! I need that outfit! So jealous that you can pull off yellow jeans!

Ana said...

Wow! I have been loving yellow for the past few months, but I never thought a pair of yellow jeans could look this good! (I need to get on the coloured jeans band wagon stat! :P). Also, stripes have been my obsession for the longest time, so needless to say, it does't get much better than this outfit for me! :) The blouse I think adds such a lovely touch, not only with its cute print, but also because it pulls together the colours from the rest of the outfit so well.

This definitely brought a little sunshine to my day too! :)

MJ @ Teaching in Heels said...

Love that you're mixing stripes and patterns here...looks great!

CupcakesOMG! said...

pretty much the perfect combo. i mean, i'm LIVING in colorful denim these days...it's way more versatile than i think most people would give it credit for being!

CupcakesOMG!

Great outfit and beautiful photos!

I'm a new reader of yours... so this might be a question you've answered before, but do you model for a living? You take gorgeous photos!

Shannon Marie said...

Beautiful! I especially love the shirt's detailing!

Rachael said...

Love how those pants just make your outfit pop!
I would be totally what you were going to do, and just do plain blue jeans. I wear jeans everyday. That's a good idea to get some colored ones.

That lipstick color looks great on you and I love colored pants!!!

Heather said...

I rarely enter Old Navy but I did the other day and found some great things. I love this look! I was surprised to see that it was from there!

Love the outfit and the pop of yellow definitely brought it up a notch.
