Many Yellows, Specks of Turquoise



Have any of you ever tried yellow over yellow combination? I had not, until I wore this neon yellow cardigan over the pale lemon yellow top. At first I was afraid it would look to blindingly bright for my conservative office, but they turned out nicely and prettily. At least, I think so!

Really, this is summertime, I imagine living in a little cottage with lush garden wrapping around it, with white picket fence. I'm dreaming of sitting on the front porch, under the shade of magnolia tree, reading a book while sipping a glass of fresh lemonade. On the table next to me, a pitcher of iced lemonade with lemon slices floating on top, and a plate of crackers. Wouldn't that be delightful!

Perhaps it would something like this...


Or it would be like this lovely painting...


Ok, I'm getting sidetracked here. I'm listening to Gone With The Wind soundtrack: Tara's Theme while writing this post, and got a bit of Scarlett O'Hara moment. Back to the outfit. I plan my outfits of the week around the purse I would be carrying for that particular week, and I was carrying the nautical white and leaf green summer tote, which I love, because of its size and structured shape. I didn't plan to throw yellow on top of green, but here they go and blend very well. I finished the look with a turquoise-colored statement necklace, earrings, and bow wedges. Not too shabby, if I may so myself. Colors always make me happy!

This outfit is really cute. I've always loved yellow and black but this would be a way to pop the yellow with summer colors. Thanks for sharing. Visiting from Making Your Home Sing.

Thanks 4 linking up to Top of the World Style. Your bag is a real must-have. I love that you added the yellow as a pop of color. With the slides the turquoise becomes sort of a neutral in the outfit. I really like that effect!

So, it's definitely the pop of turquoise against the lemon that has caught my eye! A colour combination I never considered before, but it really pops! Stopping by from the Passion for Fashion link up xx
