Yellow and Turquoise With Neutral Skinny Jeans Outfits

For today's Weekday Wear Link up, two outfits with similar colour schemes of mustard yellow and turquoise, but two very different resulting outfits. One I needed to layer a little more than the other, as winter draws to an end here in Queensland and we get a mix of warmer and cooler days before spring official starts in September.

What I wore:

Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India turquoise moto bag | away from blue





Jacket: Jeanswest Melanie floral kimono
NecklaceRoie Designs feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
JeansNobody Denim Siren skinny super high-rise jeans in power black denim (c/o)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India
 

Why I wore it:

With the suddenly warmer weather I wanted to get one of my kimonos out again! This duster one is great as it has longer sleeves that I appreciated doing the school drop off in the morning when it was a bit cooler. It was really warm in the afternoon though and I was glad it's not too thick a fabric!

I've worn it with yellow before, but it's the first time I've paired this mustard tee with it and I really liked the combination. The turquoise Balenciaga first bag is something I've accessorised this kimono with before though, such a fun way to wear even more colour to the already colourful print.

These Nobody Denim skinny jeans are a firm favourite as they go with everything and with the comfortable stretch in them they were perfect for a day of working from home with the school run and an afternoon specialists appointment.

Why I wore it:

This was a busy day, with an early appointment for my youngest right after school drop off. I had to drive into the city for it and although I know some work places are back it was still busier than I expected on the drive in.

As it was a bit of a chilly morning I took advantage of needing to layer by adding some colourful pieces to an otherwise monochrome outfit. It's the first time I've worn this grey tee and the grey skinny jeans together but they were a great outfit base for the teal and turquoise Alexander McQueen skull scarf and the mustard cardigan. I liked how the turquoise skulls matched the Balenciaga first bag too.

How You Can Wear It:

Yellow and blue look great together, and turquoise and mustard are a nice example of that. With a bold colour combo you can keep the rest of your outfit neutral like I did in the second outfit with the monochrome grey, or add even more colour with a bright printed piece like the kimono in the first outfit.

  1. Kimonos are my go to for those days when the weather seems like a mixed bag - hot and cold. This one is so pretty with so many fun colors it can literally go with just about everything.
    I have a mustard cardigan and haven't thought to wear it with grey yet but it looks good.
    Hope you have a good week and thanks for the link up Mica!

  8. I really love this colour combo - and it seems really well suited for winter to spring transitional outfits as it reminds me of both fall and spring/summer colour palettes.

  11. That's a beautiful kimono on you, I love the floral color mix! Thanks for sharing your awesome kimono collection video with us! What a fun weekend with 2 birthday parties. It's hard on the kids in our area, we are very restricted and social distancing. In our neighborhood, the family with the birthday makes a big sign to put in the front yard of their house, and everyone honks the car horn and claps as they go by in celebration!

  12. I always like how you showcase a color scheme two different ways!!

  16. Your first outfit is beyond any doubt my favourite of the two. Such a fun and colourful creation! Twenty kimonos! I'd duly impressed, although not exactly surprised :-) I've said it before but you really are the indisputable Queen of Kimonos! I love how you manage to combine them with absolutely everything! Hope you're having a lovely week, Mica xxx

  17. Hi Mica
    I also think that Kimonos are a great piece of clothing for those days when the morning is still a little cold and the afternoon is warmer !! I liked the second look more but you look beautiful in both !!

  28. Yellow looks lovely on you! I love both outfits, but especially love the first one with the kimono. I love pulling out colors when styling patterned pieces, as it simplifies the styling process and always looks good! I hope you're having a good start to your week so far, Mica!
