Not Going Out Like That

Yellow & Black


Two things I seem to have on repeat lately is this sweater from Gap that I bought in 3 colors and my denim coated moto jacket from H&M. I also seem to have an obsession with matching my colorful sweaters to shoes and the polka dot heels I have on, have a little stripe of yellow that I hope you can see in these pics. Yellow is one of my favorite colors and pairs really well with navy, black AND my favorite neutral – gray ! I also love the combination of a toned-down buttery yellow with camel or tan. So my advice is – if you find yourself alone with a lovely yellow blouse or sweater – go ahead and purchase it because it’s an easy way to bring some sunshine into a not-so-sunny day (which yesterday was !)

PS – You can grab my Pinterest button and pin any of these images 🙂

Oh, I am also LOVING these African beads that I got at the Melrose Trading Post Fleamarket, which you can read more about here. They are so bright and colorful and are very different from all the “bauble necklaces” I see everywhere these days.  If you don’t live in LA and can’t get to this specific flea market, you can find these beads on Etsy. They should sell for $5-$15 a strand, depending on the type of bead / material.

    • Jena – you might be able to find them on Amazon. That is where I got them. They were originally available at Cusp / Neiman Marcus. I have to say they are VERY comfortable. I wore them all day at work and my feet did not hurt at all !

  7. The polka dot shoes and yellow top are my favorite pieces of this outfit. Overall, you did a great job!


  8. So cute!! I love the bright yellow with the contrast of a black leather jacket!
