Mundane Mondays - Yellow Again

I know I'm not the only one who's obsessed with the Olympics...GO CANADA GO...GO CROATIA GO...just a quick shout out before we begin talking about what I'm wearing...oh one more thing before we get to me, what are your opinions on the Team Uniforms? Did Ralph Lauren do well with dressing the Americans? I was not happy about the uniforms being made in China. What about the Canadian Team? I'm not excited about them but they could be worse. Then there's Armani for Italy and Stella McCartney for the Brits. Fashion is now part of the Olympics.

So here we are, Monday and it is time for the simple things in fashion...yellow denim and blue denim button down. Easy and fresh like lemonade.

When I styled this outfit it brought me back to high school. Button downs and the preppy look were a big trend and Polo was the brand to wear. I still remember seeing Renata K. wearing a white Polo button down (and the little polo man was dark blue) with her jeans and thinking that no one could wear that look better than her. I tried that look in high school but the shirts were too short on my arms!

Some twenty plus years later I'm wearing jeans and button downs and I think I got it. Roll the sleeves. Thanks Renata!

  9. This is a great look, I like the jeans and the chambray shirt. I did like the Ralph Lauren uniforms, Armani just had a suit for the athletes. Not sure why the bloglovin isn't updating...

  10. GREAT COLOR COMBINATION! TEAM US'S UNIFORM WAS COOL, I THOUGHT, BUT I WAS APPALLED BY MY HOME COUNTRY'S UNIFORM.. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?? THE PERSON THAT DESIGN THE OUTFIT SHOULD BE SUED!

  28. I love that you combined this relatively dark denim with those bright pants and fun belt! It definitely tones down the androgyny of the shirt and dresses it up a bit. Haha, I sound like I don't like these denim shirts too much. I actually do, I just prefer to combine them with fun, feminine pieces like your just did here.
