While making a wrong turn in Silver Lake we stumbled upon this obnoxious yellow house with matching banana hued Corvette parked out front. It all screamed, “take a picture of us!” as we drove by. Obviously, we had to oblige. Even better was that I just happened to have a matching yellow dress, black leather jacket, and boots. Sometimes you have to go places you don't intend to go. Take for instance, yellow and black. I immediately think of caution signs and bumble bees, but then I see this house. This corvette. My yellow and black phobia ends and I embrace it :)
My yellow sundress is styled simply here, adding only a leather jacket to toughen up the look. Truthfully, it wasn't until the photos were taken and sent my way did I realize that I actually did like the yellow and black combo. I would totally wear this outfit (sans matching Corvette and house!) In fact, I did several times later. Sometimes all we need is a little push to climb out of our comfort zones to try something new :)
