Mellow Yellow

by - Friday, March 29, 2013

I was all set to write about how today's look is what I call my Charlie Brown outfit. Then I googled for Charlie Brown images... and it turns out his shirt is dark yellow with black zig zags! Not the brown shade that I was envisioning in my head. Cartoon knowledge fail.

My main focus for today's outfit was on color pairings. I wanted a palette of more camel/brown than dark yellow, so that's why I went with a longer wool coat, even though it looks at odds with bared ankles. With moderate temperatures for this time of year (40-50s), unclothed extremities are less of a concern.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

  4. I like the color combo. I am still on the hunt for a more camel color coat.


    1. Now might be a good time to buy a winter coat since spring collections are rolling out. I hope you find what you're looking for!

  5. I love this outfit! That jacket is fabulous, and the color goes really well with the mustard of the turtleneck. And who can turn down animal print? Not me!!

  6. I always though Charlie brown was wearing yellow and brown too! Maybe the "brown" in his name just throws us off the black :)


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
