I have olive skin, and yellow is not my friend. Not on my top half anyway. Unless looking jaundiced is a new trend? Didn't think so. I do love the sunny look of yellow though and didn't have any in my wardrobe. I found this look on Polyvore through Pinterest...a common theme in my life. Here is the link to the look on Polyvore.
We're just going to ignore the $550 jacket, $270 shoes, and $1,395 purse for my purposes. Those are not what caught my eye anyway. I liked the yellow skirt, and black and white shirt together. This combo is a paltry $1,500 for the two pieces.
Here's my version. I'm not sure what happened in my editing process, but this picture looks fuzzy. Those are solid stripes.
As I put together outfits, you will notice that I have a few places that I really like to keep an eye on the inventory. For this outfit, I pulled my $9 shirt from TJ Maxx. I just knew that you can't go wrong with a nice black and white striped top. It adds spunk to many an outfit!
The yellow skirt is from a Banana Republic Factory Store, bought on clearance for $22. That felt steep (not for Banana Republic, but for my personal clothing budget), but I am only 4'10" and I had to factor in that it fit me perfectly without having to do any alterations/hemming.
This is kind of a big deal for me.
The purse is a find years ago at TJ Maxx. It was on clearance for $15, and was just too unique to let go. I had no idea that day glow colors and color blocking would be coming back around. What I liked were the clean lines, fun color (it's hot pink inside!) and that it seemed like it could hold up to a beating.
The shoes were from another bargain shopper's haven, Target. These patent pumps were only $13 on clearance! I have to be honest, they are not shoes I could stand in for hours or dance in at a wedding, but they work for church and any work where I can sit for periods behind a desk.
This entire outfit, shoes to purse, was $59. Of course the pieces all go a long way with other outfits as well, and you are sure to see them again in another Pinsperation.
