Teal and yellow
cardigan, Old Navy, tee - Joe Fresh, jeans - Joe Fresh, shoes - Connie, necklace - Banana Republic
Seeing Sal of Already Pretty and Diana of Smiles go With Everything rocking teal and yellow combinations lately inspired me to put together one of my own.
I just love the way they look together, and it brightened my day to be wearing such fun, spring-like colours. This necklace is a favourite in my jewelry box, yet I never seem to wear it. I seem to always reach for metallic jewelry or more understated colours.
Although I feel pretty comfortable in this outfit, it's not one of my favourites. I suppose I feel most comfortable in a dress or skirt, rather than jeans or pants, and I'd have felt much happier wearing a denim pencil skirt or similar. But once in a while, you have to truly dress for practicality, which I did today -- for Maya's parent and tot gymnastics class. It's a mild workout for the parents, and obviously a cute dress won't cut it.
Looking at this picture, I feel a little wide in these jeans (wide-leg... natch). Although I'll admit that the wrinkled pants (complete with smushed cookie on it from Maya's snack) and the craptastic hair day aren't helping matters any.
