When I first saw that Pantone’s Misted Yellow was part of their Fall 2014 Color Report, I was certain I wouldn’t wear it. While it’s a beautiful color, I didn’t believe it would work with my wardrobe or my coloring. I vaguely remember having a pair of corduroys in this muted yellow shade as a kid back in the 1970s, but have never worn this Dijon mustard hue as an adult.
During my last visit to Stella Studio, I picked up this Stella Carakasi Point of Interest Cardigan in Saffron, on sale for $89.00. I debated about it at first because of the color but ultimately decided to take it home with me and get creative.
Inspired by the beautiful decor at The Warwick San Francisco Hotel, I wore it with dark cobalt blue and white with my Misted Yellow.
Silver accents would work with Misted Yellow but I prefer gold in general and opted to wear my new Steve Madden Annee espadrilles for a casual and comfortable look. I think Coco approves!
For gold jewelry, I wore my new Onecklace that I won in a giveaway on Catherine’s blog, Not Dressed as Lamb. Instead of my name or initial, I decided to go in a different route. I have to say I think this necklace is pretty fantastic and it’s a great conversation starter!
For eyewear, I wore my classic Ray-Ban aviators. These sunnies have gold rims and go with just about outfit.
I have a different view on this shade of yellow now and may incorporate more Misted Yellow into my wardrobe this fall.
Along with my new gold shoes and Onecklace, I also had some gold added to my hair this week. My hairdresser, Addie of Dolce Vita Salon in Santa Rosa, used the French method of balayage, painting highlights on freehand.
I love the added sun-kissed highlights. Addie also cut more layers into my cut for additional movement and lift and took a couple of inches off the bottom.
Next, I’d like to wear my Misted Yellow cardigan with gray and silver. Would you wear Misted Yellow? If so what colors would you wear pair it with?
