Lemony Yellow

yellow + stripes

There's something about a slightly popped collar that takes a regular button-down shirt up a notch, in my
 book. It feels the teeniest bit retro glam to me, like what I envision stylish Katherine Hepburn-types in the '40s  used to do (my level of historical sartorial accuracy is based largely upon what I imagine in my head, so just bear with me). So I'm keeping it simple in today's outfit sans any sort of big ole statement necklace or armload of bangles, but still feeling like I'm got the littlest bit of glam with me.

  1. There is definitely enough detail in both the op (pinstripe) and the skirt (lace), to make this outfit pop sans multiple accessories. I love it, of course! :)

  2. how do you pull off yellow so well? the little details are great and you always look good in button-downs.

    1. I opt for the bright lemony hues or mustardy yellows - they seem to work the best on me.

  3. Kudos to you for pulling off this outfit with the neon skirt, Lisa! :)

  4. That yellow skirt is amazing! Love the bright neon colour, and it's so nice paired with the stripes :)

  5. That neon looks really good on you~ I don't have any neon things. I gravitate towards black :)


  6. Gorgeous! I love the color of the skirt and the simplicity of the slightly popped collar shirt.

  7. Love the structure of your button down!

  8. I agree! Popped collars are pretty rad. I am loving the colors here!

  9. simply amazing. Enjoying reading your posts, keep in touch! xx Peach


  10. Such a great punch of color. I love that you went really neutral and muted with your other pieces but managed to sneak in some color and glitz in your smaller accessories. It strikes a great balance of loud, zesty elements and more muted, subtle elements.

  11. I always admire that belt when you wear it and the details on that skirt are fabulous.

  12. you have to know how much i love that skirt, it's my favorite shade of yellow! :)

  13. Ooh I love this. The stripes with the bold neon are perfection, and that belt adds just the right amount of "pizzazz". Very glam, love it!

  14. I have never popped my color - not sure I can pull it off. You look stunning as always!


  15. I like a turned up collar so much I even had the seamstress put something stiff in the collar of my silk blouse. Cause it is lime coloured but with black and white stripes if you turn the collar up.
    My husband is very unaware of these things and did the photographing of the blouse for my blog.... with the collar down....
