Every year (for the past 5 years) I purchase one cashmere sweater. I usually purchase it at after Christmas during the winter sale season. This year I got this great neon yellow v-neck one from JCrew. The sales woman told me that her and other staff members were taking bets on how the colour would suit me. I cost most of them some money.

When wearing colour, some colours are trickier then others – I prefer blue toned reds, kelly green and bright yellows (sunshine yellow as opposed to mustards). I’ve heard it said that blondes can’s wear yellow, blondes can wear yellow, it’s just about finding the right shade for you. Neon, in my opinion, might be easier to wear because it is so jarring and loud. You should be wearing neon, neon shouldn’t be wearing you.

I have always loved neon, goes back to the 80s when neon was huge and I was drawn to neon pinks & yellows. When I saw this sweater I felt nostalgic and had to try it. JCrew does great cashmere and I can see why it is so popular with its customers. I know I will be back on the hunt next year in JCrew for another sweater.

I have to say that Gap has made the best ripped jeans for me. I’ve been trying on high priced labels (because I love them) but length is becoming an issue again. Plus with all the e-mail deals and Tall options on-line with Gap I just couldn’t resist.

I stated on my last post how I hate wearing my boots EVERY DAY. I am not walking around outside with heels on, I will however take pictures inside my hallway with heels because the alternative depresses me. I wear this outfit often with my winter boots. For now I will put on my favourite heels and dream about warmer days ( like it being 5C, I’m Catholic remember. I can’t be too greedy because God will have some fun with me and none of us wants that).

    So pretty! And amen on the weather needs to go. Now.


    oooh yes I am in love! What a fabulous colour and with the nude heels and clutch it’s perfect!


    Adore that sweater! I love neons and you’ve inspired me to get some out now before spring even arrives! Love yor lippy color too! Xx


    Love this on you, the bold yellow is fantastic. I actually found my fave ripped jeans at JCREW, but they only seem to have Tall online… at least I think so. I never really go looking for long length jeans.


    Looking gorgeous Iva. I’ve been looking for a yellow sweater for ages and can’t seem to find the right one….there’s always something ever so slightly off. Maybe I give a go to J.Crew one….have to go and try it out.


    That sweater is really a great color and does look good on you. I love Gap for their distressed jeans. You really can’t beat the prices.

    I love yellow – and you’re right, that shade looks great on you!
    I also shop Gap a lot because I love that they offer Tall Sizing (even though I am only 5’4 I really like my t-shirts long).

    This neon yellow suits you really well, the colours doesn’t make you look pale at all.
    I love nude pumps a lot, yours are fabulous!
    We are so lucky here in Germany this winter as we don’t have any snow at all which is extremely unusual in the mountains. I think it all stayed in Canada and the States…

    Thank you so much for your visit and kind comment today, Iva!

    You look fabulous in this outfit – the jeans are such a great fit on you and they’re nice and long. My friend who’s 5’10” was asking me about boyfriend style jeans for longer legs so I must show her this post x


    Awesome colour!
    Gap is my go to for jeans. The price is always right with sales and I have amassed a pretty good collection.


    Adorable! I love this look!
