I know I said I was going to take Mondays off. Some Mondays, I will. But today I had this whole yellow handbag question lurking in my mind, so I thought I’d share what I’ve found and learned.
And of course I’m sticking with these five navy garments, because I delight in showing the inherent versatility of timeless classics.
My initial adventure into yellow was so nice – yellow shoes were easy to find! And these espadrille flats on the bottom right are the same shoes that I used previously in hot pink – they come in a handful of really great colors; I could see them becoming a summer wardrobe staple.
But here’s where I ran into LOTS of trouble. I had recklessly promised on Saturday that I was going to find some prints to include in this post – I was envisioning a classic yellow and navy striped shirt, or a pretty skirt with a navy background and daisies scattered across…
Frankly, all you need are a snazzy pair of shoes OR a scarf OR a nice piece of jewelry OR a statement pair of sunglasses, and your outfit will be balanced, and the yellow will look deliberate and planned, rather than “dressing in the dark”.
Next up is turquoise, and then I’m shifting to a grey core wardrobe and I’m going to talk about red. I’ve had a LOT of emails about red…
What color is bugging you – you love it, but can’t figure out how to use it as an accessory? Let me know and I’ll see if I can suggest something that will give you a few ideas.
