WIW 5/23 Lemonade stand: When life gives you lemons, put them on!

I loved Angie's post today about her citron capsule, especially with the lemon blouse and white Odynna pumps. We are lemon twins! So fun! I knew I had to wear them today. I paired them with my breezy white culottes and it was perfect. I had originally bought the blouse with a pair of cropped white trousers, but they're a bit tight so not that comfy. The culottes have a stretch waist and I don't even have to unzip them to go to the bathroom. LOL! Speaking of comfort, I knew I was going to be on my feet for most of the day today. I ended up changing from the white pumps to my Ugg nude lace up ballet flats and my feet thanked me. The color matched the strap on the lemon tote. The Odynna pumps are not as comfortable as the Okalas, they are stiffer so they kind of dig into my feet at the sides. I am loath to give them up as they really make the outfit, but I have to admit I prefer flats. Also showing the option of white sneakers for sporty luxe MOTG. I actually brought all three pairs with me so I could be prepared for any activity. Which of these shoes do you prefer with this outfit?

Also, matchy matchy lemon earrings and lemon purse. (I'm even hunting down the matching lemon necklace and bracelet on eBay). When life gives you lots of lemons, put them on! Lemons are a good thing! Toasting YLF with a nice tall glass of icy lemonade!

    You look very Zesty. Very sunny. But really I like the spots the culottes hit you. I think you look great in this color.

    Welcome back lovely mitchy matchy maximal GP!:-) I see the neutral minimal was only a small diversion only from your basic style, loved to see them both as you always look fab!

  • goldenpig replied 4 years ago

    Thanks Rachy, Ledonna and Lyn. Too funny. My colorful matchy matchy maximal side can never be hidden for very long!

    I love this.  It took my eye several minutes to see the top/tote match.  Once I did, I feel in love.

    So perfectly summery!  I like the sneakers best as an alternative to the white pumps .  And I have to admit how much I love that lemon sweater - not at all my cup of tea, but I cannot get over how pretty it is!  I think I'd wear it with faded and ripped jeans (sigh - even as I type that I think that look might be getting old -but still) or denim shorts but on you with all white?  Dynamite !

    Cute! I prefer the nude flats, mainly because they pick up the color of the trim on your bag. Plus they're cute.

  • El Cee replied 4 years ago

    I love this outfit -- perfect for summer. No one does matchy-matchy fabulousness quite like you do.

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    You are a super cute Citrus Delight. (OF COURSE you have the bag that matches our top. How could I think otherwise!).

    I prefer the ankle strap flats to the sneaks as a comfy alternative. 

  • shedev replied 4 years ago

    Perfect for summer. My favorite is with the ankle strap pumps.

  • AviaMariah replied 4 years ago

    Love it!  Those white pants were such a great purchase for you.

  • columbine(erin) replied 4 years ago

    Beautiful fresh outfit and all three pairs of shoes seem to work. I rather want that top and earrings. :)

  • RobinF replied 4 years ago

    Very cute outfit! I like it with the nude flats best.

  • Joyce B replied 4 years ago

    I love your outfit, it looks happy and fun!

  • UmmLila replied 4 years ago

    Love all the lemons, and the white heels do look good there.

    Here's a quote from my current favorite album, Lemonade:

    "I hop up out the bed and get my swag on
    I look in the mirror, say, 'What's up?
    What's up, what's up, what's up''"

  • Chris987 replied 4 years ago

    Yum! I love lemon!

    I never in my wildest imagination would have thought of wearing even one item with fruit on it (except maybe a t-shirt) and you have done multiples with tremendous style! I could learn a thing or two about happy from you :-)  I vote for the nude flats as an alternative to the white pumps.  Swap in some denim shorts for the culottes (similar to Lisa's idea) and I'd vote for the white sneakers in that case.

    I am not good at thinking about my own wardrobe this way yet...but working on it....lol.

    What a cheerful and fresh summer look, Natalie! I really like the outfit with both the ankle strap flats and heels. That shade of yellow is very flattering on you.

  • DizzyLizzy replied 4 years ago

    Lemon delicious! That top is so cute. And I love the ugg flats - I never knew they made such lovely shoes. In our part of the world uggs = slippers.

  • Chris987 replied 4 years ago

    In case anyone is thinking about lemon-motif bags (I know I am) here is another option ....a little less glam than the Kate Spade choices...
