"Sunny like yellow"

A few weeks ago, I showed you a once-cream colored cardigan that I over-dyed purple.  In that post I also mentioned that I dyed a pink blouse purple.  Well this is that blouse.  Not necessarily the most exciting outfit, but perfect for running errands on a chilly weekend.  (I was actually really cold in this picture, and I added a few more layers when I left the house.)

The fit on this purple blouse is really comfy.  It’s not so loose that it looks formless and sloppy, but it’s not too snug either.  I love how it looks with my bright yellow scarf.

I bought this red cotton coat just before I went to NYC a few years ago, and it continues to serve me well.  Despite the fact that I long for J Crew’s gorgeous wool coats, the fact is that I can generally get by in Florida with this cotton coat and my suede/faux fur coat.  But as soon as I get a chance to travel somewhere cold (i.e. when I have money and time), I plan on purchasing a lovely wool coat.

  1. LOVE the yellow! it looks equally great with the purple and the red…

    Love those rich, vibrant colors.


  3. I’m really loving the color combination that you’ve got going on here! Wool coats are lovely, but I think I’d be willing to trade them for a warmer location…. The grass is always greener, no?

    I can’t believe that you got such an amazing color from a home dye job! You should totally do a DIY on it!


  5. Ralph says:

    You’re certainly mastered the art of fashion, buddy. By adding the yellow accent of the scarf, you transform a simple outfit into something noteworthy.

    Hope you get a wool coat someday.

    This color combo is great – I purple and yellow is always good but I wouldn’t have thought to add red! And I love the dye job on that scarf.

    the purple blouse (go you for dying it!) and the yummy yellow scarf are just fabulous together!

    The yellow and purple looks awesome. I’m so jealous of you being in Winter right now. Australia sucks in January….

    Wow, that’s a really good d.i.y. project! Great idea too. I love how the colors work together and your coats fits you perfectly. Well done!
