faded yellows against ombre pinks & reds


  scarf - gift from my sister | chain bikini top - victoria's secret | wedges - a.n.a, jcp
yellow shirt jacket - junk, williamsburg | halter dress, necklace, & bag - f21

I've been newly inspired by Thakoon's amazing fall collection to attempt layering even in 90 degree weather. Slightly crazy but thankfully a possibility when you have yellow blazer-like jackets with the lightness of regular shirts. It's definitely oversized but rolling up the sleeves actually gives the sleeves this billowy draped effect. The buttons / closure on it are incredible!  I'm still madly deeply enamored with my Victoria's Secret chain bikini top... I know the strawberry-banana palette is almost sickening but for some reason I was craving a color overdose today. In romantic valentines shades too... yikes.

So in retrospect the grandma vibe given off by the jacket really does NOT complement the knee grazing halter. I probably should have paired with some shorts because the almost knee-length dress makes me look so short, but oh well.....Talk about an outfit fail. Yikes. I just really like the color pallete & lighting in these photos. HMMM yeah sorry if this blinds anyone.

  10. the length of the dress and blazer is kinda off looking, but maybe its because you were wearing flats..i actually LOVE this outfit cuz it's the kind of vibe i want to give in my outfits...girly with a mix of edge by using edgy accessories...

  20. the color of your jacket is great. I really need to invest in more yellow peices...I was thinking a mustard sweater from UO or free people would be a great place to start <3
