Daytime Spring Outfit: Yellow + Navy Stripes

April 8, 2014

Shop the Post:  Banana Republic Striped Tee // Zara Yellow Jacket // Citizens of Humanity Racer Jean // Old Navy Bucket Bag // Ralph Lauren Heels // Gap Belt (old)

I am SO into this yellow jacket.  I put it on and feel like a million bucks.  I think we all deserve to have something in our closet that makes us feel that way, and at $159, I think this particular coat was a small-ish price to pay for such confidence and good wardrobe juju.  Do you have anything in your wardrobe that does that for you?

I love pairing this bold yellow with the navy stripes, but I’ve also worn it with a denim (chambray) button down and navy trousers for work.  I also plan to wear it with a cream shift dress this Spring.  It’s a really easy way to pump up an otherwise basic outfit!

    I was just eyeing this coat the other day – yellow looks so good on you!

      Thanks Kimberly! I am a big yellow fan for Spring!

    I love this coat! I have it saved in my favorites, but am hesitant to buy because Zara’s sizing is always off for me. For reference, how tall are you and what size did you go with? I feel like the coats there sometimes run on the smaller side and I think I might have to go with a medium instead of my usual small.

      Hi Jenna! I am 5’5 and am wearing an XS here.

    Very small price to pay for feeling awesome. The yellow is great.

      Hi Meghan – thank you! I agree – small price to pay!

    Stripes + a jacket that makes me feel awesome (you’re right – SO worth the $ for that!) have been my go-to lately. I love how a coat can just make an outfit. Mine’s red, but I adore this sunny yellow too. And the bag! Love that Liz was wearing stripes & her matching bag in the same day’s post :)
