Red and Yellow Actually Go Together


Last week, I had a customer walk up to my register with a strange look on her face.  If you do not know, I work in retail part time.  I asked her if everything was okay, but she seemed in a bit of a daze.  As I started ringing up her purchase, she shared with me that she was unsure about the red pants she was purchasing.  She thought they were a bit bold and wasn't sure how to wear them.  I gave her a few ideas, such as a chambray top or if she really wanted to be bold, pairing it with yellow.  She looked at me with horror when I mentioned yellow so I gave her a few more neutral suggestions.  It made me realize that although I like seeing red and yellow paired together, I don't remember ever rocking the combination myself.

I could not suggest something to someone else without trying it myself.  That is how today's post came about.  Red and yellow or ketchup and mustard.  Two things that go together so well, but do they work together in your wardrobe?  I would now vote yes!  This outfit has easily become one of my favorites.  One of the main reasons why is because beyond the colors, the main portion of the outfit (my dress), was a piece I rediscovered after moving.

You may remember this mustard dress from about two years ago when I wore it to celebrate my 30th birthday.  I am so glad I kept this beauty because it is such a perfect dress for summer.  I paired it with super cute red mules and a fun straw bag.  The great part about this outfit is you can easily make it your own.  Espadrilles, sneakers, sandals...  You could do so much with it.  That is always the goal I recommend when it comes to your wardrobe.  Add pieces that can be worn almost anytime, any way.
