Unlikeliest Source

I fell for J.Crew's recent sale again (40% off PLUS free shipping?! unheard of) and picked up a yellow turtleneck. I figured this would be a practical addition because I've started to get some side-eye at work from wearing my red turtleneck multiple times a week. The only problem is, the dark shade of yellow isn't as easy to style as red. Side note: Perhaps a different ways to wear red turtleneck post soon -- any interest?

When I was backing up photos over the weekend, I came across one of my pre-teen self wearing what I dubbed "my McDonald's outfit." What else does red/yellow/white remind a kid of besides delicious fast food reserved only for special occasions?

So for today's look, I drew inspiration from my childhood photo by using updated clothing items for a more grown-up look. I kept the same theme of stripes with red and yellow accents, but didn't let patterns nor colors dominate the outfit.
sunglasses: Walmart aviator (similar)
scarf: J.Crew (similar)
turtleneck: J.Crew tissue turtleneck tee (sold here)
Forever 21 braid & chain stack ring set (similar)
belt: Express (this season's sold here)

  1. Hahaha.. that's cute MCDs' outfit. I can see the colors! ;) But still a great outfit! I love your scarf and Chanel woc. :)

    Also - I would love to see different ways to wear a red turtleneck. I haven't worn turtlenecks in so long but it'll be nice to see how you style them!

  2. Aw! You were a cute kid! Yellow and red is tough to pull off, but this looks nice since it is not too over powering.
