Yellow, Green & Brown

While I was perusing my google reader over coffee this morning, I saw Corporette's post about favorite t-shirts to wear under suits. My favorites are Target tees. In posting my reponse on the Corporette site, I was suddenly moved to wear my favorite green Target tee today. I pulled out this skirt and necklace, assuming I'd throw a neutral jacket or sweater overtop, but nothing I tried on looked good. Standing in front of my closet, it occurred to me that one of the things I like about mazagine editorials is how different items look great together, items that I'd never think to wear together myself. So I asked myself what jacket or sweater do I have that would compliment what I'm wearing but wouldn't be something I would normally think to put with this. This yellow jacket was the first item that caught my eye. I tried it on with minimal expectations, and was very pleased with the result. So that's how today's outfit came about.

Target, errands, work, performance of The Joffrey Ballet

Yellow Silk Jacket: Dana Buchman (thrifted)
Green Tee: from Target
Skirt: Ann Taylor LOFT (thrifted)
Shoes: from Payless
Necklace: vintage from my grandmother
Earrings: vintage from my mother
Ring: gift from my parents

Do I look just a little bit like a demon here?


  1. Wow, fabulous! I love the unexpected yellow. The way the buttons on the jacket and the buttons on the skirt complement each other.

  2. I love how your outfit turned out, absolutely LOVE it! The bright yellow with the more muted colors is so striking, I especially think the nude shoes are the perfect choice. And of course, love the button on button action. So well put together :)
