WIW: Bright Yellow

You might have to put on your sunglasses before you look at these pics - lol! 

I ordered this bright yellow EF linen mesh pullover from my eBay seller about a month ago and it arrived a couple of weeks ago on a bit of a dark day. Well when I opened the package and saw this pretty yellow fabric staring at me, I couldn't help but smile. I don't think you can be sad when wearing a cheery colour, do you?

Today's outfit started with my bright yellow pullover layered over top a white tank. I combined the top with a pair of white ankle pants which I recently thrifted and am thrilled with. I like my white slim leg jeans which I cuff but sometimes on a hot and humid day, the fabric is just a touch too heavy. These are a nice light weight cotton blend and will be more tolerable in the heat.

For footwear I went with my bone/silver sandal shoes and for a handbag, I chose my lemon yellow clutch because the colour is exactly the same as the pullover - a little matchy-matchy once in a while is fun :)

So what do you think? Quite a different colour for me, isn't it? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Pullover: Eileen Fisher (eBay)
Tank: Cleo Petites
Pants: Simon Chang (thrifted)
Shoes: Fugitive

    Gorgeous!  What a day brightener that top is!

  • Olivegreen replied 5 years ago

    Love the matchy. And the pants seem to be that perfect length and weight.

    Some sunshine for my day! I'm amazed at the range of colours you can wear with such aplomb, Shannon. Can't wait to see your pixie. You will look very Jamie Lee Curtis (I hope that sounds like the compliment I intend it to be!).

    Gosh, Shannon, you are looking amazing. I think you wear yellow beautifully. Don't you have a yellow leather jacket? Obviously too much for a warm spring/summer day....

  • Sterling replied 5 years ago

    Shannon.  I am a big fan of yellow.  I think you look happy, healthy, and amazing.

    Whoop! That is a great look. Inspires me.

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    This outfit made me smile with its bright perfection. What is the EF name for that color? You wear it well. Love those shoes too.

  • donnat replied 5 years ago

    I have been looking for a top in that color, so I will live vicariously through you and your beautiful yellow sweater. It looks to cheerful and you look so happy. Beautiful!

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    Wow, you look really good in yellow!  It's one of those colors that I can't wear so I'm always slightly envious of when others wear it.  I like the matchy-matchy clutch.

  • texstyle replied 5 years ago

    Such a fun and great color on you Shannon - I love it!  I can't really wear yellow myself but I still like to see it on others who can and you certainly can wear it. I really like the entire outfit, the clutch, white crops and shoes are just perfect.

  • Thirkellgirl replied 5 years ago

    You look great. Everything looks stylish individually and it just all goes together so well. I'm in love with your shoes. Are they as comfortable as they look?

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    So fav! Shockingly fab. ;)

    Very nice, Shannon. Wonderful colour on you - and an overall great easy work look.

  • LACeleste replied 5 years ago

    Glorious look Shannon!  You are glowing!

  • Elizabeth P replied 5 years ago

    It worked!  I'm smiling!

    (and thinking gosh.. I really need to get my yellow sweater out!)

  • dashielle (Ann) replied 5 years ago

    Ha ha Shannon, now we are twinsies for this AND the EF drape neck dress! You look awesome in this color, don ha just love it? Makes me happy too.

  • replied 5 years ago

    Ooh, me likey! How fab do you look in that sunny yellow?

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Thanks for the yellow love ladies :)

    Yellow is such a tricky color - you change the shade just slights to paler or more golden, and it's terrible on me. But a pure bright yellow is fine.

    Runcarla - you remember that yellow leather jacket huh? I didn't end up keeping it...maybe I should have... :)

    Joy - I'm actually not sure what EF calls this color. Sorry.

    Dashielle - too funny!
