Yellow is such a happy colour, isn’t it? Not all yellows are particularly flattering to my skin tone, but this warm, sunshine-y shade isn’t too cruel. I added my new sparkly necklace from J. Crew Factory (a gift from the mister — thanks again, honey!) for a bit of contrast … and to satisfy the inner magpie.

I was going to wear my usual, boring black boots, but the day promised to be as sunny as my outfit, so I made a last minute switcheroo. Leopard print pumps with plaid? It made sense at the time, ok? In retrospect, maybe I should have kept things safe with black flats. Oh well. There’s always next time — an outfit this cute is due for a repeat, methinks.

plaid and leopard print? sure, why not

7 Comments on Happy in Yellow

  1. When reading your thrifting posts, I always get excited to see how you’ll style a new (to you) piece. I’m so happy to see the skirt and shoes in action! I mean, really…those shoes? For $15?! WHAT A STEAL! The thrifting gods were watching over you on that day 😉 You may have your doubts, but I really love how they pair with plaid!

    • Absolutely! Thrifting gods have been very nice to me lately 😉

      I do think the pairing worked well IRL more so than in the photos. I was really happy with the outfit.

  2. I’m actually liking the leopard print with the plaid in this outfit more than I think I would like black. It looks like the skirt has more of a brown tone in the plaid than black, which works really nicely with the shade of leopard you have in the shoes.

  3. This outfit is so great and springy! I too love the leopard with the skirt and I think for the same reasons as Cassie – it really works with the brown tones in the skirt and doesn’t even come off as much of a pattern. That skirt is pretty amazing too. 🙂
