Inspirational Monday: Yellow + Black + White

Yellow + Black + White

Last Monday I saw a post on Mae Badiyan's blog on the color combo yellow, black, and white. Of course after her post and seeing some fashionable ladies dressed in this color combo I had to give it a try. What better way to pair my new DVF yellow skirt then with a DVF like print. I had bought this H&M shirt when I first started working (so we are talking about 4 years ago). It's one of those shirts that I got a lot of wear out of it and then threw it in the back of my dresser. After seeing this color combo this was the first pairing that came to my mind.Don't know why this shirt would be the first top I thought of but it was and it worked perfectly. Not only the perfect yellow, black, and white combo but the perfect little tribute to DVF.

  3. Lovely combo! Will have to keep it in mind to wear. Don't think I have any "normal" yellows though... just neon :)

  4. Yellow looks great on you, especially with that hair colour, it looks so summery! Love the subtle pleating detail on the skirt too, DVF is so good at nice little touches like that! Love those shoes too!

  11. I've always been a bit wary of looking like a bumble bee when wearing black and yellow, but you completely prove that worry wrong here – this look is gorgeous, and you are right that it is such a DVF-inspired look. Love!
