A Pop of Yellow









(Mango leather jacket, Bar III blouse, I.N.C. by Anna Della Russo skirt, H&M scarf, 80%20 boots, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Hue chunky socks, Mango rings and LYLIF Gold Cuff Ring)

Because most of my fall wardrobe is filled with neutral tones, I've been on the search for some pops of color. That's why I immediately turned my attention to this bright yellow pencil skirt. The bold hue along with a soft floral blouse brought a bit more life to the gloomy afternoon. And I'm pretty obsessed with a great pair of ankle boots. I just got these from NYC label, 80%20, and they are the most comfortable boots EVER. With the hidden wedge, they also give me a little lift. I can walk miles in these bad boys. Days with my good friend Claire are always amazing. Because we live so close, she's always one I call when I just want to take a walk, go out, and do something completely random and fun. We spent our afternoon doing a bit of shopping downtown.. ended up grubbing on chocolate Pocky sticks and jasmine tea (our weakness) before browsing the street vendors. I came across these two art pieces: one of Bob Dylan and one of Marilyn Monroe...two people that inspire me so much! I wanted to take them home with me!!

Under the Fluorescents said...

I admire that you can pull off a knee length skirt + boots without cutting off the line of your leg. I really like how the blouse flows into the skirt and the contrast of the leather jacket. Has anyone told you what stunning bone structure you have?! No wonder you are a model. Thanks for introducing us to Claire, I really like her blog too!!

I have been searching all my life for a pair of those boots! Well maybe not ALL my life (3 months or so) but it seems like it.

Good call on that bright yellow skirt. It really takes your outfit to a whole new level. I used to wear strictly neutral tones too but I started expanding my color palette by wear the more dark/off tones like burgundy, mustard yellow, or olive green. It was a good start!
