What I Wore // Highlighter Yellow

Are you ready for the world's most awkward "what I wore" post in the history of the blogsphere? I hope so, because that's what you're getting. Welcome ;)

After more than a year of blogging I've decided to do an outfit post to show you what I typically wear to work, especially this time of year when it's cold and rainy every day in Seattle. Oh wait, it's cold and rainy every day, any time of year in Seattle...

But I digress. Typically, my work wardrobe pretty much consists of a lot of neutrals with pops of color. Luckily, I'm allowed to rock jeans to work (thank you, God), so I normally wear a nice straight leg or boot cut and then dress it up with heels. Lately, my staples have been the most comfortable pair of black straight legs known to the history of man and a warm, cable sweater. My new favorite sweater is this highlighter yellow one from Loft. (You can find it here!). I figured in Seattle where the sun is lacking, I could be that bright spot in the sky...

Well, at least at my desk.
jeans: banana republic, sweater: loft, infinity scarf: target

Huckleberry decided he wanted to get in on the action too.
He's wearing his signature gold fur coat and looking dapper as always.

Also, at my desk today I was rocking out to some old school Britney Spears, Email my Heart...
If you know what song I'm talking about you are my new best friend.

You are one of those blessed few who can wear yellow. Love the sweater! (so jealous about you getting to wear jeans to work too)

I wish I could wear that bright of colors but every time I try I look like my skin is glowing because it's so pale. Looks so great on you!!!

Not awkward at all. This gave me a giggle - your comment about Huck, not you...you look lovely! I have no fashion sense at all, so I have to pick up tips from everyone else. Love the idea of a bright colour on a grey/rainy day.

Looks like I missed so much of your post that you are into outfit post now!(?) Will go back to your old post if I have much time.

Anyway you look good on your yellow top and what a charming aura you have on those pic. Sometimes it's nice to see more of you in your blog post.:)

Advance Happy Holiday!

Do people at work make a ton of comments when you wear bright colors? I get the weirdest comments (passive aggressive insults) about my clothing when I wear color to work here in Seattle!
