Thrifty Thursday: Mustard and Orange

Something’s gotten into me lately. In the past couple of months I’ve purchased a yellow dress, yellow tote bag, and now these yellow skinny jeans. I like yellow. I never really used to. This time last year, I didn’t own a single yellow thing.

I had a pair of skinny yellow jeans in the 80s, and these reminded me of good times in middle school, senior public, junior high, or whatever you call it. I found this pair online. They’re See by Chloe and were close to $200 before they went on sale. As luck would have it, only my size was available—and they were reduced to $30.

They were on my doorstep when I returned from Santa Fe. So with sunshine on my mind, I assembled this get-up.

Top: Old Navy ($10)
Pants: See by Chloe ($30)
Shoes: Target ($15)
Scarf: Street vendor in NYC ($5)
Sunglasses: Target ($10)
Bracelet and Necklace: Street artist in Santa Fe ($25 each)

To qualify for a thrifty outfit, the total has to come in at under $100. This outfit does—if you don’t count the jewelry. And jewelry is optional (compared to, say, a shirt), so I’m going to let this slide.

I got to try a couple of turquoise pieces that I bought in Santa Fe. I think the necklace and bracelet work well with yellow and orange (complimentary colors and all). Just for fun, I added animal print ballet flats. How do you wear animal prints? Are there certain colors you stay away from?

  1. I have been obsessed with yellow lately. Maybe it is spring? That we are seeing more sun? Maybe mustard yellow is the new cerulean blue ala Devil Wears Prada? Who knows! I do know that I adore those yellow pants.

  2. It’s funny what you find yourself liking over the years. Your jeans are really cute dear x

    I love those yellow pants! I have really been getting into yellow lately as well – it’s such a happy color! As for animal prints – I like wearing them with just about anything! I think they look especially good with bright colors, but can add a great element to more muted hues too!
