I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.
The Banana Split Look
Can I just say.. this has made it into one of my all-time favourite looks that I will definitely wear again. The yellow top is polyester (eww…) but it is everything I had hoped it would be with its split back giving it visual interest.
I based the ENTIRE look around this yellow top being the “must-have” piece, and then just added some plain jeans, and went from there.
I tried on 3 or 4 different necklaces before I settled onto my old favourite – the Pegasus from Stella and Dot, or my Ruth Bader Ginsburg necklace. If you want a necklace a little more subtle, you can try the Baby Pegasus necklace .. or maybe the Pegasus bracelet or the Pegasus earrings.
Back to the necklace. It’s a beautifully constructed piece, with gold and bronze feathers cascading down, and is a beautiful collar statement that goes well in tone with this yellow top.
I like the idea of it looking good from the front (with a statement necklace), and then when you turn, the back is also interesting with a split back.
The heels are simply because they matched well. I usually shy away from overly matchy-matchy items, but the camel spot just fit so perfectly into this clothing narrative that I couldn’t imagine any other neutral shoe doing the same job, except if it was in gold, perhaps.
LOVE THIS LOOK.
