I'm so happy to co-hosting today with Jeannie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots
and the other ladies of the Ageless Style Link-Up. Jeannie picked the theme of "Yellow" this month. I was thrilled with her theme and said "I have a few yellow items in my closet, but I'll keep my eye out for something new when I'm shopping". I ended up coming home with a pretty light yellow blouse from Maurices. I liked it when I tried the top on in the store, but when I saw the pictures after my photo session, I didn't think the light yellow looked good with my skin tone. So back to the store I went, and I found this top on clearance at TJMaxx for only $10.00. After seeing these pictures I learned a valuable lesson: shades of color matter. I look better in bright, warm, or hot colors! At least now anyways. That could all change in the summer when I have more of a tan.
It was so cold the day we took these pictures. Who am I kidding, it's been cold every day that's why I've been mostly photographing indoors. I wore my CJBanks black, faux leather jacket and a bright pink scarf for extra warmth. I carried a yellow bag for more color and to carry on with the yellow theme. This is spring dressing in Wisconsin folks! Wear bright colors so you can at least dress like spring, but still stay warm with plenty of layers, outerwear and scarves!
The black floral top is sheer; I wore a tank underneath. It also has large, flowing bell-type sleeves.
I highlighted the yellow flowers in my top with yellow earrings and bracelets, and I carried a bright yellow bag. I think it will be fun pulling other colors out of this top too like the bright blue and red. Wouldn't a bright red bag look great? Or how about a pair of bright blue shoes? I think I'll be able to create a lot of fun, different outfits with this top.
For footwear I went with black booties (old, Famous Footwear) as it's still too cold for sandals or flats.
These bright yellow, long earrings were the perfect accent jewelry with this top. I wore a variety of red, gold, and yellow bracelets on my wrist. I finished the look off with bright red lipstick and nail polish.
My cute little yellow handbag was a gift from my daughter (old, Charming Charlies).
I wore this outfit to church on Sunday and then out to lunch with friends.
My high-waist released frayed hem skinny jeans are from Charlotte Russe.
Have a Great Day! Amy

I love that you co-hosted this month and that the theme was yellow as I am loving yellow lately and even wore it yesterday. I have added two new yellow pieces for Spring. =) Love your floral top and how you brought out the yellow (and red too) by your accessories and jewelry. Cute bracelet stack and bag. =)ReplyDelete
