The Spring Pantone Color Challenge draws to a close with FREESIA, also known as the-color-everyone-thought-would-be-purple-but-isn't. Pantone has decreed that freesia is a vibrant in-your-face YELLOW.
I realize these shoes have made an appearance rather frequently as of late, but they are just SO comfortable and versatile!
What I'm Wearing:
Blouse: The Limited (thrifted) / Cardigan: Worthington / Jeans: a.n.a. (thrifted) / Shoes: LifeStride (DSW)
Here's the thing about yellow: I am often tempted to pair it with navy blue, and have even walked out of the house in yellow and navy before giving it too much thought. However, I live in OHIO STATE BUCKEYE country, and the sight of NAVY and YELLOW together all too quickly brings to mind thoughts of THAT SCHOOL UP NORTH (COUGH - University of Michigan - COUGH). Technically their colors are "maize" and blue, but any yellow/navy color combination is enough to elicit a rather visceral reaction from the Buckeye faithful.
And so, because I bleed scarlet and gray, I am very careful to never, ever wear my yellow cardigan with a blue shirt. (As tempting as it may be. Because, you know, navy and yellow really DO look quite nice together...)
"Don't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan, 'cuz we're from O-HI-O...!"
