Feeling sunny in Lexington jacket and sunnie pencil skirt

Lexington jacket in citron (size 6): J.Crew, 2007
Sunnie pencil skirt in yellow (size 6):  J.Crew Factory, fall 2011
Lace shell (size 6):  Banana Republic, fall 2011
Brown tights:  J.Crew
Brown heeled loafers: Via Spiga
So yeah, you can't really be "yellow bellied" about color and wear an all-yellow ensemble.  Good thing I don't like being a wall flower, as there was no blending into the crowd today.  The day started out gray and gloomy, and this cheerful outfit really lifted my mood.  Amazing how color will do that, isn't it? Well, that and a triple grande latte from Starbucks.

I know some people don't like yellow, and many will say that it doesn't look good close to the face.  I'm either blind to its sallow-ness or in denial, because I've never felt like yellow was a bad color for me.  Mauve, on the other hand, makes me look like I am sick and need to be in bed.  Salmon is terrible on me too...but yellow...I heart you, you cheerful lemon-y color you.  Especially on gray days.

Thank you for reading!

  5. Yellow is lovely on you! I think that is because you have dark hair and pinky undertones. I couldn't wear it when I was a blonde but as a redhead I love it. My daughter says you look like Belle (from Beauty in the Beast) in this picture...high compliment from a 5 year old girl!
