Hello Again, Yellow Again

I feel like I've been wearing a lot of yellow lately.

A review of the archives shows that I have, in fact, been wearing yellow a normal amount, but it sure feels like a lot.

Maybe because I always want to wear yellow.  Especially this cardigan.  I want to wear this cardigan every day:

Top: LOFT (similar)  Cardigan: Modcloth (size up)
Pants: Gap (similar)  Shoes: Hive & Honey (similar)

It's been the perfect transition piece for spring, brightening up my blues and grays:

So, yeah, you'll probably see this cardigan a few more times in the coming weeks

Because I just can't help myself.

How about you, Reader Friends?  Have you been wearing anything on repeat lately?

Happy Thursday, All!

Apricot Sherbet

I am not actually sure what color this sweater is.  Here it's a sort of orange sherbet hue:

But, here it's a bit darker and more apricot, I think:

Sweater: thrifted vintage (similar)
Skirt: thrifted vintage  Shoes: Corso Como (similar)

So it's... apricot sherbet?  Is that a thing?  It should be, it sounds delicious.

And it looks good with houndstooth.

Happy Tuesday, All!

Knits and Stripes

Man but I love a knit pencil skirt:

In fact, I love them so much that I only have one pencil skirt that is not knit and I only keep it because it's the most beautiful blue ever.  And, in spite of it's gorgeous color, I don't even wear it that much because I prefer the knit skirts.

They are just so darned comfortable.  And so darned easy.

The same is true for this knit bomber.  It's comfortable and easy like a cardigan, but with a less expected silhouette.

Seriously, knitwear is the best.  Especially when paired with a t-shirt.  And doubly especially when paired with a striped t-shirt.

Bomber: LOFT (similar)  Tee: LOFT
Skirt: thrifted (similar)  Sandals: Steve Madden (similar)

For some reason, I am very into stripes lately.

Happy Friday, All!

Flared and Frilled

There are finally (finally!) daffodils blooming here in Western PA and they inspired me to wear a little yellow of my own:

This top is funny because I love the stripes, the color and the cut, but I'm not sure it's all that flattering on me:

I'm pretty sure it gives my shoulders a bit of a "frilled linebacker" look, but I just can't bring myself to get rid of it.  Probably because it is so cheery and comfortable.

And because it looks darned good with my fox locket:

The jeans are also not the most flattering, but ditto on the comfort factor.  And it's nice to break out of that skinny mold sometimes.  Not me.  The jeans.  I haven't been in the "skinny" mold for ages!

Top: old Anthropologie, can't find similar, but I like this option and this one
Jeans: Gap (similar)  Sandals: Banana Republic (similar)

Bottom line, pairing flared with frilled may not be the most flattering, but it's cheery and comfortable and sometimes that's all a girl wants in an outfit.

Happy Wednesday, All!

Coral Moto

This coral moto is such a great piece:

It makes every outfit better.  And brighter.  And is beyond perfect for spring.

The texture is great too:

Textured pieces add another layer of interest to an outfit without actually having to add another layer.

But, the best part is the color:

Jacket: c/o Long Tall Sally Jeans: Old Navy
Ankle Boots: Ivanka Trump (similar

It's gorgeous and it goes well with colorful shoes.

Happy Monday, All!
