Yellow Cardigan & Blue and White Striped Dress

I love yellow, but I don’t look very good wearing a lot of yellow, especially close to my face. I got my yellow cardigan about five years ago but haven’t worn it very often over the years. One way I enjoy wearing it is with my blue/white striped Lauren by Ralph Lauren midi dress.

How To Wear Yellow When You Are Pale

By adding a little more blue near my face with the mainly blue neck scarf, I think the yellow works. It may not be the most flattering color on me, but I love the bright yellow, and it always makes me happy! And I think sometimes it’s okay not to wear one of your best colors if an outfit makes you happy.

I decided to wear my brown sandals. The sandals have a pretty high (for me) heel, but the platform makes them very comfortable. These days, I rarely wear the same colored shoes and bag as matching shoes and bags is certainly out of fashion. But I really wanted to carry my new, brown Coach bag (bought at the Coach Outlet for 70% off).

I have been pretty obsessed with finding the “perfect” brown bag for at least six months, and I even have a Pinterest board devoted to finding one. The more I looked for the “perfect” brown bag, the more I realized that there isn’t a perfect one as there are so many different bags and occasions. While I would love a brown bag with beautiful soft, delicate leather, I know that for my current life that wouldn’t be very practical as I need a bag that’s durable and versatile.

 Outfit Details: Dress: Lauren by Ralph Lauren (I love this Lauren polka dot midi dress), yellow Banana Republic cardigan (similar), Coach bag (I also love this one).

I really like the look of the brown Coach bag, and it’s a nice size - big enough to carry some things (I was able to stuff an amazing amount of items into it during a recent, unplanned emergency shopping trip where I had forgotten to bring bags), but not too big. Plus, it’s easy to care for and can be wiped down if need be. It’s perfect for everyday life right now and, in fact, many years to come.

Questions: Is there a color you like but you don’t look your best in? Do you wear it?  Do you like yellow? Do you ever wear it? If so, what yellow clothing items do you own? 

Be well,
