Summer Uniform: City Glamour

When I saw this street-style photo, I was blown away by the outfit on the right. How gorgeous does she look in her chambray shirt and yellow skirt? What a perfect combo, especially for the transition from summer to fall. While I don't know this lovely lady, I did some sleuthing...

Here's how to get the look:
Chambray shirt: EmersonMade, $128.
Yellow skirt: ASOS, $60.
Black bag: Michael Kors, $98.
Snake-skin heels: Charles David, $285, or Steve Madden, $99.
Necklace: Octavia Bloom, $76.
Cuff bracelet: Bario-Neal, $90.

Thoughts? Would you wear this? xo

P.S. More summer uniforms.

Totally beautiful! I've been eyeing up Chambray shirts for months.

Joanna Goddard said...

yes, they are like the new striped shirt :)

Katie @ Noodle and Boof said...

Love it. I have got to get a Chambray shirt. At first it felt a little trendy and 1990-ish. But, the softened version I am thinking is a go for fall!

ZombieHilary said...

Love that!

I have been posting some of my summer to Fall transition ideas over on my blog. Might have to make an addition! Good work sleuthing!

Ooo it looks also like mustard is going to be THE color for fall. How on earth do they manage to walk in those heels though?? I'd be flat on my face in under 5 seconds.

That's Shala Monroque! And I agree, that's kind of my dream fall outfit. Here she is on All the Pretty Birds: http://alltheprettybirds.blogspot.com/2011/07/shala-monroque-chic-denim.html

Love the combo, can't wait to try it out! I recently got a yellow skirt similar to that from Forever 21 for $14.00 just in case anyone wants to check it out.

It's Shala Monroque, editor-at-large of Pop Magazine and my #1 girl crush.

jamie said...

i'm wearing that asos yellow skirt today! i've had it for about a month and it's turned into my favorite piece of clothing - as a plus, it's insanely flattering and really soft / comfortable.

Jenna said...

Love the contrast and mustard is my favorite color for fall!! I must try out this outfit :)

Sunshine said...

I love it!

Love all of these outfits. You are so right though, that outfit on the right is perfect for the transition into fall! I just love the color of the skirt.

Jesse @ Happy Go Lucky Vegan said...

Denim always has me thinking of fall! I love denim paired with yellow- how pretty. Counting down the days until fall is here!

bridechic said...

I do wish more stylists would dream up alternatives for transition wear. This is stunning

Love it! Also, I love the idea of transitioning into fall. I'm going to look in my closet tonight and figure out some summer to fall transitions of my own. I always feel like I get anxious about fall too early so this will help me hold out.

Jennifer King said...

I couldn't agree with you more. I love chambray with EVERYTHING! And the mustard color of that skirt is my go-to color for fall. I love the one you found on ASOS.

Andrea said...

Great Image! artalarue.com

Aw how lovely:) Thanks for the research, this is amazing!

If you are looking for an inexpensive chambray shirt I found one at Target for $23. It's distressed, somewhat fitted and an overall great deal if you don't have a lot of money to spend.

I'm glad to see it's coming back-love Jo that you called it the new stripes! Although, I'm not ready to hang up my stripes yet!

East Coast-er Momma said...

holy moly. I'm.in.love. shoot. there goes the little bit of chump change I had stashed back. lovin the skirt.

Lux said...

These ladies look great! I want to know everything about them - where they're going, who they are, can I be their friend? Haha.

All those HEELS!!!:)

Rachel said...

Chambray shirts are one of those items that to me, never go out of style. It just gets reinvented! (The height of those heels are making me dizzy!)

Dea said...

I think I have all the ingredients to recreate this look - thank you for providing the inspiration!!

dawn said...

very pretty! the snakeskin shoes are killer- i'm a sucker for a sexy heeled shoe.

dulci said...

so colorful!

Anna said...

Yes! love the contrast of the feminine and the masculine. Emersonmade also has an adorable yellow skirt you may have noticed (I like the red one, too)...

Notes from Holly St. said...

So chic, love that look! I would love to wear that outfit.

my soul is the sky said...

that's so interesting because when i saw the photo that's the outfit my eyes glued to and i examined every piece she was wearing too.

thanks for the break down :)

Molliee said...

Bridget said...

How gorgeous! I love all the colours. The ensemble with the chambray shirt and yellow skirt is stunning

Jackie Welling said...

I want so badly to be able to wear skirts like that, however I also want so badly not to look like I am ALL hips, so I can't. :(( GOOD JOB finding all the pieces though!!

Mai Pai said...

Love that ensemble! Such a fan of the chambray shirt.

Miss Becca said...

Yes! I woudl wear that! Lovely!

sweetlola said...

Um, heck yes I would wear this, in fact, I made a polyvore set based on this exact outfit a couple weeks ago...http://www.polyvore.com/leopard_chambray_yellow_happy/set?id=34416354
except I swapped snake skin heels for leopard which I think would work equally well. Anyway, love this look!!

Kate said...

LOVE THAT OUTFIT!!! Thanks Jo!

Melanie said...

oohh, I am not alone. I saw this photo a few weeks ago and fell in love with the same outfit, so I bought the emmerson shirt, and found a similar skirt from an Australian fashion lable (Cue) who just released a delicious mustard coloured skirt, of course for me this will be a Spring/Summer look with Sydney hopefully about to warm up a bit. So glad others feel the same =).
I love this photo for the colours, and would love to look like one of these gorgeous women. Always love your posts Jo, especially about your yummy son and being a mum. Making being a mum very cool.

lydialoves said...

Beautiful! Love all the colours. We are still in a freezing cold winter here in New Zealand!! Cannot wait until Summer! xx

It's Shala Monroque.

Celeste Hoang said...

would absolutely wear this! thanks for the inspiration, joanna! xx

The Graceful Wife said...

There is just something fabulous about yellow clothes. Maybe because people don't wear yellow much. Except for the sailor on the fish sticks box. What year was it that Renee Zellweger wore the yellow strapless Jean Desses gown to the Oscars? She stole the show that year! Thanks for the great post!

Anonymous said...

i just ordered a retro denim shirt from Gap. I love this look and especially the chambray shirt.

Alix h. said...

Count Me in. Love it.

benson said...

damn you joanna goddard for posting such cute outfits and making me buy them :) I actually got a Levis chambray shirt which looks fab along with the asos skirt.

Grandma Kathleen said...

I would have to take a deep breath to wear that...I would do it!!

Anonymous said...

Yes, would definitely wear this outfit!

Courtney said...

I would totally wear that! She looks awesome.

That isn't what I noticed first.

Pearls could be the earliest identified jewel, and for ages have been considered by far the most precious Pearl Jewelry Set. So incredibly valued are Freshwater Pearl Necklace, that the Roman commanding officer Vitellius allegedly paid for a total army campaign by using just one of his mother's Freshwater Pearl Earring. Pearls seem to have been worn as a personal decoration for generations. Freshwater Pearl Ring signify chastity, chasteness and ethics. They have for many years been considered ideally suited wedding day presents because Freshwater Pearl Beads represent chastity and chasteness. Customarily it's a near requirement for brides. In the western world, akoya pearls are the preferred gift for lovers remembering their third and thirtieth wedding anniversaries. Fashion and fabulous turquoise necklace are ideal for counter display and gift giving. Whether it is a tiara for the bride or accessories for the bridesmaids, jewelry beads will look amazing. supplies beads

Love all of their outfits! I'd totally wear it all!

Katie @ Chai Thoughts said...

This is wonderful! I especially like the mustard skirt.

Looks great on these girls, but give me my flip flops and T's!

Pictures on Page said...

Yes, I would totally wear this! Funny, before I even read what your written my eyes went straight to her outfit. I have a skirt in that same color–inspiration everywhere!

i personally love the red and purple dress!

Emma said...

that yellow skirt is awesome! i would totally wear that. :) x

Anonymous said...

The yellow skirt really livens the outfit. I'd totally wear something similar, but not if it would cost me over $700! I don't think I'd ever buy a shirt that costs more than $50, not even if I made $100,000 a year.

Mandy said...

YES to yellow!! I'm all into yellow right now and can not wait for the next pay-day!! whooopwhoop!! :-) ♥ Mandy (and the name of my blog is: MENNEPEN)

Rebecca said...

All of those outfits are gorgeous! But yes, the yellow skirt does take the biscuit. Want one! x

Oh yes I would ! I'm in love with this beautiful, lovely yellow...

Really a wonderful post. Keep it up.

Very nice picture, love the colours

Greetings,

kate said...

love love love this . . . of all the outfits you picked the best. Who would have thought that chambray and yellow and snake skin would go together? I think there is also something about the way that this lady is walking and holds herself which stands out.

Kirsty {a safe mooring} said...

Here's a link to a full shot of the outfit if you're interested - I love it. Although I think the shirt's actually denim, rather than chambray, but either would look great.

Also, I actually bought that yellow skirt from asos a while ago - feeling very proud of myself now for being ahead of the fashion game!

ourdreamlives said...

I love this picture and love that outfit, the colours are so fab. I'd have to wear flats with it though!

Would TOTALLY wear it. Yum. I love long pleated skirts. Just bought a beautiful black polyester one from Club Monaco. Now I'm inspired to mix it with my chambray... too bad it's not yellow!

Charlotte said...

I love the chambray shirt! What a great shirt that seems like it can be paired with almost everything!

Sara said...

oh that is delicious. I've found my perfect chambray shirt, but I may need to buy that Asos skirt. What color tights would you wear for cooler weather? I'm thinking charcoal?

Snappy Di said...

Great color combo she has put together! Chambray has always rocked in my book!!

Jaime Lee said...

How the heck do you ladies walk around the city in those high heels? I just bought a pair of 4 inch pumps, they keep slipping off my feet and I feel like I am going to break my ankle. My legs do look to die for in them, but can only wear them when walking short distances.

i'm always curious - how do you walk the streets of nyc in heels? maybe i'm just lacking grace.

alexis said...

Love the sunny skirt. Reminds me of mid-fall afternoons when the sun is flickering through the leaves. Would you wear tights with this on chillier days?
