EBEW: Amarillo

T-shirt:  Old Navy
Shorts:  thrifted via ARC's Value Village
Shoes:  UrbanOutfitters.com
Purse:  EckoRed via TJMaxx
Neckaces:  Target & thrifted

I love yellow.

Oh yeah?  Why don't you marry it then?

Because I'm already married.  To a dude, not a color.  It's just better that way, trust me.

Glancing in my closet, you wouldn't think that I love yellow as much as I do.  Makes me feel like hypocrite.  It's not the first time, I assure you.  Say one thing, buy another.  It's one of my many character flaws that I have no intention of overcoming.  Brutally honest, baby.

How do you like my makeshift necklace?  The single-strand wasn't doin' it for me, so I pulled out my faux-pearls (not to be confused with my real pearls - ahem), and started looping and folding.  This is the end result.  Grande improvement.

Don't you just love my Spanish-speaking skills?  2 years in high school and I actually had to google 'spanish word for yellow'.  Studious?  No.  Witty and sarcastic?  On a good day.

Giveaway ends Thursday.  No hoop-jumping required.

I love how relaxed, chic and put together you look in this outfit. Those shorts are fantastic and I love the yellow heels! That's a genius idea with the necklace too.

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

Tres chic!

(That's my shiity French for ya!)

Love the look and I am the say way about yellow, it's a great pop and works well with different hair/skin combos. I especially enjoy those yellow heels!

And love the idea of the necklace, it was the first thing I noticed and I figured you bought it that way, cool to hear I could do the same thing myself!

Don't feel bad I love purple and only own 2 pieces in my closet. Loving your DIY necklace and those bright yellow pumps!!

Lauren said...

First - This is such an awesome summer look! I really love the yellow heels!

Second - Can you do a DIY on how you put that necklace together? I'm trying to figure it out and my mind just can't see it (visual learner here :)). But that is such an AWESOME idea!

Emma said...

Love this outfit! The shoes are fab. And the necklace idea is great, I'll have to try it!

Loren said...

Love the double necklace idea! Your purse & shoes are to cute.

Frannie Pantz said...

You are such a crack up. Thanks to you, I have opted not to marry yellow after all. Phew. Glad I dodged that bullet. I love your necklace--muy inventive-o. (See what I did there? LOL) These pops of yellow are perfect!

Mrs Spanglish said...

I love yellow too! I have to say this is one of my faves from the recent outfits posts!! (although they are all lovely)
Also, I think you're pretty funny chica :)

Emily said...

Lovely! I really like the makeshift necklace, and am filing that idea away for the future. And don't worry about your Spanish - I minored in Spanish, and can barely carry on a conversation any more. And I work with international students. It's embarrassing.

Howdy Jillie! I went with a yellow bag too!! I'm loving how you upped the anti though with more bits of sunshine! Great job! OXO Natalie

I love this outfit. The shorts are fabulous (great thrifting find) and are a great foil for the pops of yellow.
