Skippy Says: Colorific (OOTD)

I'm not sure how these pre-haircut pictures got away from me, but here's the last shots of me with my long hair. Oh wait, I do know how they got away-- I wasn't sure if I wanted to post them. You see, Ryan wasn't the biggest fan of this outfit. I believe phrases like "color overload" and "box of crayola crayons" came out of his mouth. It's possible that I may have responded by calling him a turd, because, you know, I''m mature like that.

  1. I'm mesmerized by the color of your top. I think it's time (again) that I start nudging my way out of the neutral fog I'm in.

  2. I love the bold color on top and bottom. This definitely works girl! I love how you two get into it. HAHAHA Have a great day girl.

  3. Ooh, Skippy, this is a lovely blouse! I love the saturated color and the sexy cut (mitigated by the high neckline - very sultry).

    And tell Ryan to shove it. I think you look great :)

  8. Not too much color at all. The more color the better. My husband makes fun of my big scarves all the time. Heather

  10. I don't think it's too much color at all! Just right :) And I love cobalt and yellow together. Oh, and I say turd all the time - I guess we're both mature.

    Psh, I think this outfit is great! Of course, I'm partial to the blue and gold pairing, so I'm biased.

  15. Your outfit totally works! Husbands are just like that - mine hates it when I wear colored shoes with a black dress because it "doesn't match." Oh well. I love the blue and yellow color combination, and the skirt really anchors the whole outfit :)

  16. Ryan is CRAZY! I love mustard tights. As evidenced by this: http://pennilesssocialite.blogspot.com/2011/11/inspired-by-pinterest-navy-and-mustard.html

  17. LMAO!! Aww, hubby's aren't always right...

    Love the jacket :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks! Yes, color is the best :)

  19. Thanks Kim! In my world there is no thing as too much color :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thanks Anna! Lol, I think calling him a turd took care of it :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks! Sorry that skirt is no longer available, but I did link to 2 very similar ones at the bottom of my post!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks Jordan! Exactly my thoughts- stupid boy :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks so much Cara!! I wore that jacket so much when I first got it it's all frayed at the sleeves now, but that doesn't stop me from wearing it more :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks Heather! I couldn't agree more :) Boys just do't know any better!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks so much Clara! There is definitely never too much color in my world :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. No, no, not biased at all :) Thanks Hannah!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks Kim!! And colored shoes with a black dress are the best- makes it so fun! I wanted to wear bright pink shoes with a nude dress to Ryan's company's holiday party this year, but that got vetoed :)

  28. I don't think it's the tights he had a problem with so much as pairing them with the bright blue....but what does he know? :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks!! Definitely not. I would even go so far as to say they're usually wrong :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. NOT color overload, more like color cuteness! I am loving yellow and blue together lately. In fact, I just posted a yellow and blue outfit today! So ha, if two fashion bloggers are doing it, it MUST be cool... right?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Lol, definitely. You know I'm the epitome of cool :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Tell Ryan I think he's a stupidhead (now who's mature?) because I think the outfit is adorable. In fact, and I mean this in an endearing way, it kind of reminds me of Snow White with the bright blue/bold yellow. All you need is a little red and you're set ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, I think your outfit is spectacular! Royal blue and mustard are one of my favorite color combos. :) Those tights are awesome! You look adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I honestly don't see where the colour overload is! It's absolutely the right amount of colour, some blue and some mustard! :)
    Plus the shoes look super comfortable!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks so much for ignoring him and posting anyway. Gives the rest of us courage to add more color in our lives!

  36. Great style lady! I stumled on your blog from SassyUptownChic... you're adorable. I particularly love your shoe choices!!! and hair = adorable. xo

  38. This is not to many colors at all. Half of them are neutrals. I think you look great. I can't keep track of all the 'man-repellers' but I'm pretty sure bright loud colors is on the list. My boy is not a huge fan of them either. But he knows to keep his mouth shut.

  39. Love the color of your mustard tights. What a beautiful contrast!

  42. Thanks!! The shoes are really comfy :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank you so much! And yes, I do! I'd probably try to keep the rest of the outfit fairly neutral, but I'd wear these tights with a red dress or skirt :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Aw, thank you so much Lana! So glad you popped by :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Skippy your so cute!! I love that I can see "Pine St" in the back :) Your tights are super cute!! Pretty color on you too!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thanks Lena!! It's one of my favorite color combos too :)

  47. Interesting- why don't boys like bright colors?!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Thanks Sayaka! That's funny- I was just noticing the pine street sign too :)
