This is only the second outfit picture Chase took this week. The first is here. This may mean (a) I've been sleeping in, (b) running late to work, or (c) living in these yellow jeans and this striped skirt all week. If you chose (d) all of the above, you are correct! It seems when I am in a style rut or rush, I usually grab the newest thing in my closet, which let's face it, is always. What do you usually grab when you're in a rutrush? rutush?? rutsh???

I'm wearing a JCPenney pink scarf (free - buy it!), Love Stitch white blouse ($4), DownEast shirt underneath (gift - buy it!), thrifted Forever 21 yellow jeans ($6), and thrifted teal wedges ($10) with a vintage Gucci bucket bag ($3).

  2. What a lovely color combo with the red/pink scarft, mustard jeans and teal flats.  It's funny I reach for new things when I can't make a style decision too!

  3. I like the crisp white with the yellow of the pants a lot. As far as rutrushes go, you seem to be holding up just fine! :)

    As for me, if all else fails, I'll grap a long, denim skirt. Paired with a shirt, a belt and boots it still can breathe a little 'country chic' without being either too frumpy or formal :)

    Blessings,
    This Good Life

  5. Love this outfit! I always find that when I wear coloured jeans I pair them with black shoes, but I love these little blue ones with the yellow!!

  7. I love all the different colors in this outfit - very cute!  Whenever I'm in a rutrush (which, let's face it, is 90% of the time) I usually just grab a pair of jeans and a white v-neck.

  11. since i'm currently unemployed, my go to outfit is a coral super-thin off-the-shoulder sweater and cut off shorts with gladiator sandals.
    If I were working, it would probably the blue and white abstract pencil skirt from anthropologie the fuschia top from banana republic with detailed neckline.

    I love what you're wearing--especially since you lived in it for a week. :D

  12. Those pants are sweet. I wish I could rock skinnies.

  13. I swear I wear my white jeans almost every day.  They just go with everything and they're so summery!  I was on the hunt for colored jeans the other day and couldn't find 1.  I guess I need to go online.

  19. I love the bright cheery colors. You look so happy :)

  20. I tend to grab something black and something grey.  Maybe something white.  I know they'll go together.  This is why I have a lot of black and grey in my wardrobe, because it makes those rushed mornings easier.

  21. Love your use of bright colors!

  22. I grab my blue jean skirt and a tee shirt! I've been in a rut too! Not good! You have to get out of your rut, so I can be inspired by you! :)

  25. I tend to grab bright colors, and just go for it in my closet. I also will look in my blogs photos to see what fresh new outfits I can come up with.

  26. You pull off yellow so well! I tried out yellow jeans but it just wasn't right for me.

  28. I always pick my favourite jeans and any top that comes into my hand. Love the colours!

  29. yeah, i grab the newest thing, too...which right now is also my striped skirt!! twinsies. ALSO this plaid shirt i got at a flea market last week...but it's kindof kurt cobain-90's grunge-y...so i haven't blogged it yet. i just don't think my readers can handle what a true slob i am yet.

  30. i still love those yellow pants on you :) you're great at styling really bright things like that so they don't look overwhelming. you're giving me lots of ideas to copycat from you!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love the colors of this outfit! Those pants are really cute, and incredibly versatile. My go to rush outfit? A dress of some kind. It's the quickest and painless, and a nice alternative to the inescapable jeans. 

    ReplyDelete
  32. I usually grab a dress, just because I don't have to think too hard about styling. I did that last night at about 11:20pm when I realized I was about to crawl into bed without having picked my clothes for the next day yet. And since that can take me a good hour and change, I just resigned myself to a quick comfy cotton dress.

  33. I love the style of your scarf.  How do you get it knotted like that?

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a gorgeous outfit! I totally grab new things when I'm in a rush. For some reason it makes me feel more put together than "old" clothes =P

    ReplyDelete
  35. the fist thing i grab probably is mmmmm my black jeans! they never fail with some flats and any top!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love your hair! It looks so shiny and pretty :)

    This outfit is simple but I love it. You make those mustard-ish pants look so good. I feel like I would be all washed out in that color.

  38. My rut/rush grab is totally my tan cowboy-style boots from payless.  Now that it's summer, I don't know what to do anymore!!

    I love the white and the accessories.  The whole outfit's so colorful!  You look beautiful.
    If only all your readers were as confident as you are!!

  40. The jeans!! I love all the color going on here, you win, my friend. I try to escape my monochrome life, and the best I can do is throw a mustard cardi over black and grey. >_< someday soon, I will break free!

  47. Those jeans are worth wearing over and over again, my rush choice is always a jersey black maxi and flat thong sandals can't go wrong with that!
