This outfit is all about 2 of my fave purchases of the month: that Gap clutch, and my J. Crew factory top. So what if they don’t really go together? My love is the glue that holds it all together.


Ok, I’m back. I felt very summery in this outfit, even though my shoe choice kinda dampens the vibe. I even dug out my ancient hoop earrings (Banana Republic circa last decade), which always scream “summer” to me for some reason. Here’s a closer look at my other joolz:

Yellow is kind of an underrated accent colour, no? But I really dig it with blue. And grey. I assure you that, weirdly lit photos aside, my jeans are actually grey, not light blue.

4 Comments on Blue, Grey, And Yellow

  1. Very nice! I’m beginning to appreciate yellow more and more as an accent and main stage colour. I really like yellow with grey – it’s a bit softer than yellow and black. Yellow and blue is unexpected and fun.

    • Totally! Yellow is kind of offbeat (who picks yellow as their favourite colour?) but it’s surprisingly versatile. Also, perfect for summer.

  2. I love grey & yellow together (your jeans do look blue!) & wear it a lot myself. Elodie’s room is bright yellow walls (her choice) with a grey carpet. No one wanted all the pink thankfully, she’s girly but also loves trains so that colour combination meant we could have all sorts of colours as accents. I digress.

    She pointed out a yellow & grey skirt in the new boden catalogue & said for you mummy, like the colours of my room. She’s a good girl 😉
