The yellow blazer







Yellow blazer - Zara
White jeans - Citizens of Humanity
Grey tee (already seen here) - T by Alexander Wang
Ballet flats - Repetto (2011)
Nails - Majorelle blue YSL

There is nothing better than a blazer to complete an outfit, specially in the morning when you're late for work (right, working girls ?). This morning I was again very late and quickly put on a pair of white jeans and a loose t-shirt. After that I wanted something to make my boring outfit pop but I didn't have time to experiement. I tried a colorful cardigan but it didn't work. Then I remembered my yellow blazer (bought last week but already forgotten, oops) which ended up being the perfect piece to complete my grey/white outfit. In less than 5 minutes I was done and once again I was saved by "the blazer". This time it was the yellow one, I wonder which one it will be tomorrow... How about you, what item saves you in the morning when you're in a rush ?

To tell you the truth, I bought this blazer because I loved the color but I didn't think it suited me. Strangely today I got so many compliments that I realized that maybe yellow IS my color. I always thought that blue was my color but I can be wrong. Anyway, I will definitely experiment more outfits with yellow this summer, just to check.


From top left: Rag & Bone blazer (mytheresa), Les Petites sweater (famousbox), chiffon dress (topshop),
Essentiel sandals (famousbox), Mavala Lemon Cream polish, chain & thread bracelet (wanderlust), clutch (zara)


If you think that yellow is (one of) your color(s) you might like what I have selected here. I am personally in love with Rag & Bone blazer, a perfect mustard yellow blazer for autumn (yes, it's coming !).

How about you, what is YOUR color this season ?
