One of my absolute favorite colors to wear is yellow because it is such a happy and fun hue that truly POPS with whatever it is paired. But one problem with bright yellow pieces is they are so stately–which makes it hard to mix them up and people not notice. So…how does as fashionista get versatile outfits without jeopardizing her love of bright yellow?
On this week’s fabulous Three Ways to Wear Thursday, I am going to show y’all how yellow is a lovely hue that is really quite easy to get a lot of wear out of. So, without further ado, let’s check out this week’s TWTWT!
One of the most fabulous color combos is sunshine and cobalt! I have been crushing on this sweet color match since the blog started in 2012. Don’t believe me? *wink* Well, check out the throwback post here.
AHH! Wildcard outfits are my ABSOLUTE favorite thing because they are an opportunity to really break into a unique style that fits and flatters your tastes. For me, I love mixing together the unthinkable.
So, for look 3, I combined a red/pink/black floral skirt with the bright yellow boho blouse for a look that is truly me and fabulous. What would be YOUR wildcard look with this blouse?

Last week on Weekly Whistle, I chatted about how rust and emerald have always been my color sweethearts. If you missed the post, check it out here–you don’t want to be behind *wink*
Taking a little bit of inspiration from last week’s throwbacks + a fabulous necklace I just finished making, I decided this week’s outfit of the week should be all about gold and emerald! Oh…there is just something about how emerald pairs so elegantly with rich hues like rust and different metallics. I remember several years ago, I had this fabulous emerald dress, and I wore it with practically with everything under the sun *wink* Hm…I wonder where that post is on the blog? *stalking myself* HERE WE GO!
Seeing this dress again makes me feel like I might have to dust it off for some future closet-shopping blogs, but I digress *wink*
Let’s get back to this week’s Weekly Whistle *wink* Check it out below:
For those of you who have been following my blog since the beginning (it will be four years tomorrow–CELEBRATE! *happy dance*), you know just how obsessed I am with funky blazers. From bright, graphic prints to velvet floral ones–I cannot turn down a blazer that has a spunky personality *wink* Oh, and to think…it all started with a turquoise blazer I stumbled upon at Urban Outfitters about five years ago! It was love at first sight…and then I quickly spun out of fashionable control *wink*
Now, for this week’s fabulous Weekly Whistle, I am playing with warm and pastel hues + a super-duper lovely velvet floral blazer. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at this week’s outfit of the week!
Lately, I have been listening to A LOT of 80s music–Genesis, ZZ Top, Bryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Joan Jett and the list goes on and on. So, naturally, I have been in like a totally rad, neon pink, acid wash and Miami Vice mood *said in my best Valley Girl voice*
When the winter storm hit last week and dumped about 9 inches of snow, my photographer and I took the opportunity to take some awesome outfit photos for the blog. As I was pulling items for the photoshoot, I stumbled upon a pair of funky fine (vintage) Levi’s *cue ZZ Top’s Cheap Sunglasses* that I had TOTALLY forgotten about.
In my 80s state of mind, I embraced the crazy, yellow acid-wash denim and decided to create a wearable wildcard outfit for this week’s Weekly Whistle. In the word’s of my photographer, “Wow…well, Abby–it sure it bright.” *wink*
Now, without further ado, get your 80s groove thang on and check out this week’s Weekly Whistle + outfit details! Also, be sure to pay special, close attention to the fabulous handmade bracelets!
I am 100% of a sucker for stately clothes–especially pieces that can be worn year-round. So, when I got this AH-MAZING Kate Spade chambray bow blouse for my birthday last week, I 100% jumped for joy! Oh, y’all–I was happier than a 14 year old girl with front row tickets for a Justin Bieber concert *wink*
At first, I was a little skeptical about the bow being so close to my face because usually things that close make my face look fat/round; however, I tossed my hair up + put on some glitzy earrings and TAH DAHHH….fabulousness! The texture of this lovely chambray top is soft and not scratchy, and surprisingly, it pairs effortlessly with lots of different things in my closet! From jeans and clogs to party skirts and vintage-inspired oxfords, this Kate Spade chambray bow top has become one of my stately wardrobe staples in less than a week’s time!
*fangirl scream* I love this Kate Spade blouse SO SO SOOOOO much, and I am pretty sure I could wear it everyday, everywhere, and with anything, BUT instead, I will just do a VIP Three Ways to Wear later *wink*
Now, without further ado, take a look at the photos, outfit details, and a VIP fashion tip below!
VIP Fashion Tip For Styling Stately Pieces
When styling stately pieces for the office or brunch with friends, it is important to remember to play down the other elements of your outfit. Doing this will help you create a chic ensemble that will have everyone looking twice *wink* For accessories, go minimalistic. If you want to add a little sparkle, keep it simple like with the glitzy studs I am wearing in today’s outfit.
