WIW: bright and cheery

The cloudy rainy days are past (for the moment), and today is bright and sunny, though chilly (in the 40s F).  My outfit matches the weather with bright colors that make me happy in warm-ish fabrications.  This mesh sweater really isn't warm, but a thermal undershirt and a second navy tank top (to bring the better for me color near my face) are making up for it, and keeping me comfortable.

I had a hard time figuring out what shoes to go with this (story of my life recently), but didn't want to be outdoors for longer than one set of pictures, so I opted for these almost-nude-to-me loafers.  Do they work?

I know this sour yellow-green, though a happy, springlike color, is generally bad on me - does the navy mitigate the "she looks sick" bit?

 Also, the camera is below hip height this morning.  Eventually I'll find a spot where both the lighting and camera angle can work :)  Maybe if I set the camera on a chair.....

    What a fun and cheerful outfit, Amy! I love the citron green/yellow sweater and I think the darker layers work great here. Cute shoes, too!! YLF!

    You don't look sick at all and those jeans fit fantastic! Great outfit.

    The shoes are gorgeous! (Brand?) And you look good in this spring green to me!

    Thanks Rachy - shoes are Gap, but I got them at GoodWill, so I'm sure that they're not all that recent.

    Love this outfit on you. The color is great.

    Yes, I think the navy creates a bit of a buffer with the green.  Incidentally, I'm a light green (olive) coloring, and don't wear yellows/greens at all for the same reason.  I have noticed though, that I'm less sallow than I used to be.  It looks to me like this color is doable for you, if it makes you happy!

    Well done on the shoe choice - I can't believe you had a hard time - these seem perfect. I like how you have a blue layer under the green - great idea to make it more flattering. Totally works.

    Oh yes - this is a fabulous combo Amy! I really like the grey flats with this, kind of anchors the colour scheme.

    One of your best. The sour yellow looks great with blue denim and the loose fit looks wonderfully modern

  • Karin L H replied 5 years ago

    I like this! Such a happy colour of the top, and it looks nice with the denim and navy.

  • Elizabeth P replied 5 years ago

    You look fabulous.

  • rachylou replied 5 years ago

    Gap has shoes? Real shoes like that? Huh. Guess I'm not a real shopper, lol!!

  • Olivegreen replied 5 years ago

    You can wear those sour brights. So pretty.

  • donnat replied 5 years ago
