Blue and Yellow

Tank top: Target
Cardigan: Halogen
Skirt: Old Navy
Boots: Indigo by Clarks

Blue and yellow always remind me of our rival high school's colors, so I tend not to wear them together, but now I'm thinking I kind of like this combination... though not the grey tights + grey tank combo, I'll change that next time.

I hope everyone had a good holiday and new years! Judging from my Instagram feed, it looked like everyone had a nice long break from work. I technically only got three days off (Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Day) but since I'm off every Wednesday (I only work 4 days a week), and the other days in the office were SO slow, it felt like a vacation anyway.

  1. Doesn't look a "school spirit" at all :P. Love the necklace with the flags, I'll call them, for lack of a more fashionable word :). What's wrong with the grey shirt and tights? And you get every Wed off b/c you work 40 hrs on 4 days? Nice. Happy 2013!

  2. Grey and yellow is always a winning combo and I love the pop of blue too!  Are those the fleece-lined tights?  I kind of want some but I would probably not get a lot of use out of them living in Phoenix.  

    I also had to laugh when you mentioned the grey tank+tights combo, every time I do that I feel like I'm wearing a body suit.

  3. I think the flag necklace would be called "bunting"? maybe? I don't know my proper "fashion" lingo, haha!

    I still work 8 hours a day, so I end up working a 32 hour work week, but it's still considered full time and I still get all my benefits... just not my full pay :(

  5. Yes, they are the fleece lined tights! How cold does it get in Phoenix? It's not like these are super warm/insulating, they're just more cozy and warm compared to normal tights.

    Oh man, now every time I wear the grey tights/tank combo I'm going to feel like I'm wearing a body suit as well. But that probably won't happen again. I hope :)

  6. Blue and Yellow is one of my favorite color combos. Ever. Of all time. It's just a no brainer! You pull it off fabulously! I love it!

    (and so jealous that you get Wednesdays off!)

  7. Before ~2 weeks ago, I didn't own any yellow. I always felt it clashed with my hair (it probably still does but whatever). I've been looking for different ways to wear my mustard cardigan so I think I'm going to have to recreate this. NO WORRIES, I will credit ;)

    or just build my blog around your outfits but claim they were my own ideas. either or.

  8. Ha! Blue and Yellow (or gold as they called it) were also my rival high school's colors! I still love this look, I think it's the boots.  I love them and they look so tough, but you look so sweet.  I saw that you mentioned these are fleece-lined tights.  FROM WHERE!?! I want! :)

  11. I totally love this combo! Especially because the blue is almost a slate grey and yellow and grey are my FAVOURITE! Plus, the way your tights match your shirt made me a little too excited. Something about finding that perfect match and balance always gets me :)

  12. Having Wednesdays off is amaaaazing. Especially for times like Thanksgiving when I get almost a whole week off. It's also nice to run errands and go to Costco when it's not super packed. :)

  13. I think mustard yellow is a universally flattering color. Neon yellow or pale pastel yellow, on the other hand, is not. Yours looks good on you!

  14.  Yes! fleece lined tights. I get mine at Nordstrom Rack (they're the Legale brand and about $7 a pair and they have black, grey and brown) They are awesome! I believe they sell them online at a lot of places too but I always get mine at the Rack.

  15. haha! There's balance, and there's.... looking like I'm wearing a grey bodysuit underneath my clothes. I think it was the combination of both things being more fitted to the body. I think I'd like it better if it was a loose grey t-shirt or something that. :)
