Blue + yellow redux! Yep, I wore a different outfit with this same necklace for my first day at my new job, as seen here. And for the first day of the term, I paired more shades of blue, royal blue and navy, with this same yellow statement necklace. School spirit for the win!
Closeup below of these awesome striped wedges and my yellow statement necklace. I got lots of compliments on my necklace — and it was funny that most of my colleagues were surprised that I dressed purposely in the school colors.
A new workplace = new colleagues to indoctrinate with my pattern-mixing and bright color combinations! 😉
I utilized one of my favorite ways to wear a cardigan, all buttoned up so that it looks like a skinny sweater. It helps when the cardigan has dyed-to-match buttons, like this one, which comes from my favorite line of August Silk cardigans.
And quick note, the backdrop is part of our backyard fence — and this is the last time you’ll see this fence in its natural wood color. We (and by “we,” I mean mostly Sam) have since stained our fences “sequoia red,” which looks awesome! My own colored wall backdrop! 😉 )
