Beyond the Yellow Brick Road

technicolor outfit - pink- blue-orange-green outfit

What I’m Wearing
* Royal blue pencil skirt is Eva Franco {sizes run a little big, I should have sized down one}
* Grassy green blouse by Miguelina from GILT ages ago. Last seen here.
* Vintage orange cropped jacket… which yes, like an asshole, I’m wearing over my shoulders. I can’t help it, it just works so nicely for photos, and it was rather warm, but still, it’s uselessly illogical for reality as it does not stay on my shoulders. ever.
* Vintage Saks Fifth Ave striped clutch. Was my mom’s I think.
* Belt is deep brown crocodile… and thrifted with no brand.
* Leslie Danzis pink chain necklace and AV Max navy Python Pattern Bangle both from GILT
* Kenneth Cole white leather watch
* Gucci vintage stripe sunglasses
* Manolo Blahnik pink Mary Janes

* Title: lyrics from Elton John – Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

I decided to pair just about every bold hued item of clothing I had in my closet together into one look. And it was BOLD… but definitely wearable. I think the key with mixing so many colors is making sure they are all of the same intensity, or same general area of the color wheel, so to speak. I originally had a bright yellow belt on, which I preferred to this one, however, the larger, darker choice was much more flattering. Looking back at the photos though, I almost wish I would have matched my bag to my belt, or at least chosen a darker over the white. Though I love that the stripes pick up almost all of the colors in the ensemble, the white background is a bit much and worked better with the yellow belt. Overall though, it was a fun look and reminded me a little {well a lot} of Joan from Mad Men. Speaking of Mad Men… the new season is so close I can feel it! Who else is ridiculously excited for its return?

    This outfit makes me smile – it’s so fresh and springy, how could it not?! And those shoes are just fantastic – do they run pretty true to size?

    The outfit and those colours look great though I think the orange blazer is a bit too much. 😉

    Have a nice day!

    Gorgeous colour palette! I had one of these days recently, really felt the need to put together a super bright and colourful outfit. Must be something to do with the dreery winter weather here in the UK. The shoes really are stunning.

    At the riskof sounding like a total “perv-bag”…that last shot is EVERYTHING! That blouse is EVERYTHING. The color explosion in general is everything!

    (In random news, I’ve just tried to punch in the letters for verification three times so my comment will post…WHY won’t they effing make the letters easy to see? Why are they written in “Fraggle Rock” language!?! Am I the only one who feels like that?)

    …anybody….*looks around*

    Okay. Bye. Maegan! HA!!!!!!!!

    The jacket over the shoulders has always looked a little silly to me, it looks like u have 4 arms (but I don’t think you’re an “asshole” for doing it!) …and for some reason this outfit with it’s colors reminds me of Halloween, not Spring, maybe it’s the orange, and the green, and the belt which looks black not brown in these photos, I don’t know…and the last photo looks like an intentional shot of your butt in which your thong is clearly showing underneath, a little inappropriate…on a lighter note…the hot pink necklace is awesome I’d like to see that in another outfit (which I usually love btw) I was hoping to see a close-up of it!:)

    I love your outfit, but sister you have seriously amazing hair, so much so, I had to go and investigate your hair tutorials and hair care advice. Thank you so much for putting it there because I’ve been trying to grow my hair and I think the highlights I’ve had for years have damaged and thinned it out.

    I think I will take your advice and next time at the hairdressers I may ask to go a little darker and go easy on the hairdryer in order to gain length and strength.

    One can only hope it will bring me nearer to heavenly hair like yours.

    Your video on hair curling is adorable, I love your accent!!
