Matching Your Yellow Shoes to Your Outfit
Quote of the day: “The pen that writes your life story must be held in your own hand” – Irene C. Kassorla
Anyone in my age range or older is very familiar with outfits matching. That was one of the fashion rules pounded into our brains for the majority of our lives, right? So even though, I try hard to get away from too much matching, I realize that some older women feel more comfortable with it. Thus I had to include this category as part of the series for the yellow shoes. This series is very similar to last summer’s series about the red sandals (check it out here). I started the category by pairing these same shoes with a more neutral palate so the yellow would be the pop of color (see it here). You can also see closeups of our yellow shoes in this last post if you missed it.
I tend to strive for variety with the three of us, so you can relate to at least one of our style personalities (although I’m aware that my influence dictates most of our looks)! Thus mom wore her cotton yellow pants, Nancy styled her yellow capris and I donned a yellow shirt.
How would you wear your yellow shoes? Tell me in the comments below!
Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: So this is a shirt worn over a dress. I’ve had this dress for years and have worn it tons! However, I haven’t been as happy with it recently.
Two reasons are because it has an empire waist, so I can look a little pregnant. Also the front of the skirt has grown and now hangs about 2 inches longer than the back of the skirt. Therefore, after this evening (I wore it out to dinner), I decided to make it into a skirt. We’ll see how it turns out and if you’ll ever see it again!
My bracelet is an acquisition from Boho Betty, which is an online company that is creating global inspired bracelets!
I’ve worn this one at least a dozen times already and it gets so many compliments. I did join the company as an affiliate so if you ever want to buy one of their bracelets, make sure you use the code: JTOUCHOFSTYLE to get an extra 20% off—anytime, any bracelet!

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: I know in the past, I’ve shied away from wearing black & yellow because the combination reminds me of a bumble bee.
However, I think the fact that Nancy’s yellow is a pastel, makes this outfit just great!
The capris are another wonderful piece we received from Fabrizio-Gianni last year.
They did need a little altering before Nancy could wear them. You can see how they look on their website here—but in person, they seemed too wide in the legs, so we just took them in about an inch on each side.
I tried to show in the pictures that the shirt has a lace design in it.
I realize that everyone loves a t-shirt, but sometimes it’s nice to have more interesting shirts—at least up close and personal!
Pants: Fabrizio-Gianni (here in other colors)~~Top: Claudia Richard (similar here with pleats)~~Shoes: Kelly & Katie (similar here)~~Necklace: (similar here in more of a cluster)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)
Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: Mom made this shirt a long time ago. I left the bottom button unbuttoned on purpose to let it flair out more instead of being so tight against the pants!
The necklace is an owl (shocking, I know).
I vacillated about whether to add a necklace at all. And then I thought about having one that contrasted more. But in the end, I went with subtle but fun! Is that what you’d have styled?
Pants: Jones New York (similar here in a cargo version)~~Top: Mom made it (similar here in oversized, and here in black & white)~~Shoes: Nine West (here in a brighter yellow)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)
Your yellow shoes can work wonderfully as a matching item if you have yellow pants or skirts! This may be the way most of us think to wear shoes, and it can look great!!
I really enjoy any thoughts you contribute! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Even if you wouldn’t consider purchasing your clothing online, it can be helpful to look through my links to see what is available! It certainly doesn’t hurt my feelings, if you click on them but don’t like them. Just so you know, one of the ways I make money from this blog is through these linked items.
I’m also part of a Fashion News app with a handful of other blogs. I don’t receive anything from this, but it could make it easier to read my posts on your phone!
