The Magnificent 8: Hello Yellow!

For something different, sharing a Wednesday post again. I am not yet returning to the 3 posts a week I did before Coronavirus hit, this is a special post as I've joined the Magnificent Eight! The theme today is "Hello Yellow", one I had a lot of fun with as I have quite a few yellow pieces in my wardrobe now! 

So I'm sharing two outfits, one I wore on the weekend and the other during the week for the school run. Because even though it's a blog collaboration it wouldn't be my blog if I wasn't showing you what I actually wore, would it! Scroll down to see them and find out more about the Magnificent 8 ladies!

What I wore:

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Tank: thrifted Target mixed print colourful printed tank
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

I had this cardigan in mind for the Hello Yellow theme and was wondering what top to wear with it, as it was so warm I decided on a tank. This tank was also thrifted, just like the cardi, and the yellow in the mixed print works so well with the mustard cardigan! It was an extremely warm day so a scarf wasn't needed, I even rolled up the sleeves of my cardigan for a bit!

Kept the rest of my outfit neutral with the Converse and my black Nobody Denim skinny jeans, and the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag

Simple but colourful for a warm winter day in the playground. Even though we hadn't had any COVID cases in our state for 8 days at the time I was still a little unsure about taking the kids to a playground for the first time since Iso! I seemed to be the only one worried, the playground was so busy! The kids had a blast playing there even though they had to wait their turn a few times. We used to visit playgrounds regularly before everything happened, so it was nice to get back to it, and easier on my injured knee than the exploring around local trails and empty parks that we have been doing instead the past few months.

What I wore:

Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in elfin yellow
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

This outfit was pulled together from other outfits I've worn before! It's not the first time I've worn the scarf and cardigan together, and I really liked this yellow tee last time I wore it with olive green jeans so I wanted to try it with these green jeans as well. I added the navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag as it matches so nicely with the navy scarf and cardigan, and again was a nice neutral with the bright top and jeans.

Was a quiet day - doing the school run and taking the little one out to hunt for more books at the opshops. With it being No Buy July I wasn't going to browse for clothes but thought we could go have a look for some books. The kids always like picking up a book or two whenever we stop at an opshop. And with getting back into reading over Iso after my neighbour started up a virtual book club, I wanted to have a browse of the books for myself as well! Was a fun way to spend a small part of the morning after school drop off.

How You Can Wear It:

Yellow is such a cheerful colour to wear - and it pairs well with other brights too! Try it with green, blue, navy, or keep it simple and stick with neutral black skinny jeans.

  7. Okay, I cannot decide what I love more about the first look. That cardigan is gorgeous and I am obsessed with that shirt! The print is SO fabulous.
    the creation of beauty is art.

  8. I love the diversity of age in your Magnificent 8!!! That's awesome

  9. Mica, I love both of these outfits! The first one is super cute and reminds me of a mustard cardigan that I have and forgot about. The colors in the second outfit are so beautiful and bright and bold! Well done! I am so glad that you have joined our group! It is a really fun bunch of ladies!


  10. I love the yellows on you Mica. It's nice you showed two different shades of it and how it goes with so much!!

  11. I love yellow and don't wear it nearly as much as I should. What a fun group of ladies to post with. XO

  13. I love both of these outfits! I'm definitely missing my sweaters, leggings and scarves right now during this heat wave right now where I live! I hope you're doing well! Thanks for sharing! :)

  16. Such a cool post. Love the tank top in the first photo.

  17. Mica,
    First of all, welcome to the Magnificent 8. It doesn't look like yellow was a challenge for you in your wardrobe. The yellow cardigan is a great basic piece to own and your Target print top is a great compliment to the yellow cardigan.
    I do remember that you have a fabulous bag collection from my prior visits to your blog.

  18. You look fantabulous in yellow! Love all your outfits especially the tank top in the first photo.

    Happy Thursday!

  19. Love the yellow theme, the cardigan goes so well with the cute blouse with yellow accent. Nice to know you have a magnificent 8 blogger group.

  20. I love your mix of blue, green, and yellow! It's such a lovely combo! Good pieces, too!

  21. Mica, that first outfit - YES YES YES!! Look at your colour! You look absolutely amazing in it. I def think mustard Cons would be a good addition to your wardrobe.

    I like the second outfit, but I feel like that pale yellow tee is too wan for the bold blue and green - the tones feel off a bit. It's still a solid outfit.

    Hope you are well, my dear!

  22. You do suit yellow, Mica, and it's such a cheerful colour, isn't it? I particularly love the bolder, mustard yellow on you, and that cardigan offsets the multicoloured tank wonderfully! xxx

  23. I like both outfits on you Mica. I love the first outfit with the yellow cardigan. How fun to collaborate with that group of women. I hope you have a nice end of the week and weekend.

  24. Yellow is such a happy color. I wouldn't mind wearing it everyday :)
    Cute yet lovely outfits for everyday Mica!

  25. You look great in yellow! :)

  26. I love how you styled yellow! It really is a lovely happy color. I especially liked how you wore it with the colorful top.

    It's good that you don't have any new cases. Our cases are actually on the rise.

  27. A virtual bookclub sounds fun... I've always wanted to join one, but have never had the time. I love that yellow card and the fun tank underneath! I haven't gotten back to my normal # of posts since Covid either.


  28. Both outfits are so bright and nice! I really like the color combinations and this wonderful bag

  29. Oooh love your yellow cardigan! And your green jeans are just so fun! I just joined a virtual book club too and it's been so fun. That's awesome that your boys love to get books at the opshop as well!

  30. Yellow is one of those colors that I always have some difficulty with! You found a great shade and I'm inspired to keep looking until I find my perfect match. Thanks for joining the Thursday Moda link-up!

  31. Ooooh I love the way you styled the yellow cardigan with the navy! That's such a cool look! I hope you have had a lovely weekend, Mica!

  32. Yellow is such a pretty color. I love the top outfit and the way you styled it. I see how important the accessories are to complete the whole look. Love it Mica. Have nice day. :-)
