Road to the city of emeralds...


Is Paved With Yellow Brick"
-- Frank L. Baum

Do your recognize the above quote? It's a line from the book, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz". Even though bright yellow isn't exactly what I consider to be one of my most flattering shades, I can't help but feel cheery when I put it on. This becomes especially important when you live in a state that is full of snow and grey skies during the winter. We've barely seen any sun in weeks and yesterday's temp was 12 degrees. UGH!

No matter the frigid cold, I still braved the temps to step outside for a quick snap of this yellow, black and taupe outfit. It is 100% thrifted and the fabulous vintage Liz Claiborne crossbody purse was a thrifted Christmas gift from my best friend Jenna (the yellow collared shirt also happens to be vintage Liz Claiborne!). I couldn't wait to throw it into the rotation, and I felt like it was the perfect addition to the color scheme I had going!

  1. Aw, reminds me of my office days. I love how the whole outfit is clean and stylish but second-hand. People just don't believe me when I tell them you can find super high quality name brand stuff while thrifting all. the. time!

  2. Thank you Van! =) I totally agree--people are always shocked when I talk about what I spend and where I find my clothes. This entire outfit only cost me $16--and that's because the real leather boots were $10 secondhand! =)


Leave me a comment or question--I'd love to hear from you!
