Yellow and White

I don't wear a lot of yellow as it can be quite the challenge to find a shade of yellow that looks good on me. When I saw the yellow top in Germany, I liked the shade of yellow right away and thought that it may work with my coloring. I tried it on and liked the way it looked.


I decided to wear the top with white jeans and my silver lace up flats (most likely the best shoe purchase ever; I bought them three years ago for $12 (reduced from $125) and have worn them pretty much every week as they are super comfortable and go with everything; they still look great and I look forward to many more wears). 

I really love the bell sleeves.  


I wore the outfit to a sustainability event and dinner at the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose. There are lots of exciting and promising things in the works to help save our planet. 

Outfit Details: White Jeans, Yellow Top (option 1, option 2, option 3), Silver Lace Up Flats (option 1, option 2, option 3

    Nice shade of yellow. Looks great with the white jeans and brown bag.

  2. Yellow has been my favorite color lately, but you can't always find the things you like in the color!!
    And I remember when you got these shoes---isn't it the best feeling when you stumble across something so versatile??

  4. You look beautiful Andrea! Yellow and white is one of my favourite two-toned looks. I have quite a few yellow outfits, I especially love pairing yellow with white or black. What a deal you got with your shoes - cost-per-wear they are practically free!

    The sustainability event sounds interesting, something very dear to my heart!

    And we have something else in common - BELL SLEEVES - in fact, I'm wearing bell-sleeves in my new post!

  6. The bell sleeves are so cute and I just love the shade of yellow! I think finding a yellow that works with a skin tone is really hard at times. This one is perfect on you!

    2. I like yellow colour very much but, as you said there are shades of it which doesn't suit me...
      I like your top , especially for those lovely sleeves!

    3. Thanks, Dan! I love bell sleeves, and the shorter ones work in real life and don't hang into everything...

  7. I am just beginning to try yellow after my mom told me 50 years ago that I look seasick in that color!! Ha!! My youngest daughter wears yellow and her daughter look like Belle in yellow, so they have inspired me to give it another try. Always admire those darling shoes but had forgotten what a steal they were. You bargain shopper, you.

    1. Isn't it amazing how other's opinions about what colors suit us affect us for a long time? I didn't wear blue for nearly 20 years because a "friend" told me that it showed how boring I was...

      I wish all my purchases were as successful as those shoes!

  8. Yellow is a tough color, especially near your face. This shade looks great on you!
