Remember our heroine who helps non-math types learn to work with data and statistics? She’s on the road again!
She likes structure, and clear-cut plans. She was wise enough to realize that she would NEVER find clothes in this “wet cardboard” color, so she substituted her favorite bright yellow/gold for the beige… This is her inspiration:
She likes bright, and cheery, and she’s happy to hold the attention of her “students” while she’s persuading them that numbers will not hurt them…
Because she works for an advertising agency, she doesn’t have to get super dressed up, but she always likes to have something with her to look businesslike. You never know when office managers and assorted executives might drop in!
She truly enjoys the night before she leaves – planning what she will pack, and admiring the tidy efficiency of her travel capsule wardrobe…
She does have some lovely outfit options, doesn’t she?
It’s interesting to see how her “2-Season” wardrobe is coming together… What a distinctive look this is!

This is so fresh and springlike.
I am seeing lots of matchy-matchy on the street. (Yippee!) So yellow shoes with yellow bag and maybe a yellow scarf, or a multicolored scarf with some yellow.
These are very much the colours I’m wearing at the moment (minus the grey) but I mostly have a much more casual wardrobe. I am learning so much from your blog, my purchases are few and much more thought through than they have ever been before. Better late than never! Thank you.
Sorry, but that striped dress looks like a bathrobe!
Wouldn’t it be fun to have a bathrobe like that! I’m not a yellow wearer, but I would go for it with a bathrobe.

It didn’t strike me that way at first, but as soon as I read your comment, I took a second look. You’re right! I think it’s the tie belt that does it.
This is such a lovely wardrobe! I love yellow, but unfortunately it does not love me back. Otherwise I would be so tempted to do something like this with my own wardrobe, which is anchored by a similar core of black and white basics. Of course even I could probably get away with a lovely pair of yellow flats and a daisy-print scarf ….
I have a daisy print silk chiffon scarf that I love pulling out each spring! (and I can’t wear yellow either) – nancyo
I added yellow to my wardrobe this spring with mixed results. Turns out yellows can clash.
Even though I’m not a big yellow wearer, I love the styling of all these pieces. A pair of white mules, espadrilles, or sandals would be a nice addition (and on trend!).
Me too, I just mentally substituted a bright I can wear: fuchsia turns out to be a great stand in.
