WIW: Citron column with grey and white

Angie's ensemble and column of color blog posts and inspired this outfit. I am wearing a citron tank under the grey top that just peeks out.
Jeans, tank, belt and grey layer are all from Target. Wilson's Leather moto jacket; SE Python Petty booties.
Too much bulk? I'm not sure how I feel in this outfit yet, but wearing citron today is a happy thought.
I welcome your suggestions and comments.

    Wow!  You wear citron beautifully.  I do not see bulk, I think you look great.

  • El Cee replied 6 years ago

    You look absolutely stunning Joy! Citron is a very flattering color for you. I do not think the outfit is bulky. Looks perfect to my eye. Love your moto jacket.

  • Catnip replied 6 years ago

    Wow!  Joy, you look terrific.  These colors look wonderful on you.

  • Tina replied 6 years ago

    Absolute perfection! I can tell you love it too:-)
    Those pants fit so well. You look amazing. Hope you have a fabulous day to match your fabulous outfit!

    ETA Your hair is a big factor in the success of this outfit,IMHO. The soft color helps to balance the citron. I'm smitten.

    Adore this look on you! The silvery grey is gorgeous with your coloring and the citron is of course a fave of mine. Well done!

  • Susie replied 6 years ago

    Love this on you, Joy! The colors are so flattering and it's such a fun look.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Stunning, Joy! WOW. You wear these light and bright colours with such panache. Love this. I don't see too much bulk but if the arms feel stiff maybe you can figure out another option. 

  • MsMary replied 6 years ago

    Wow!  Fantastic!  It looks the opposite of bulky!  I particularly love it with the jacket.

  • Dana replied 6 years ago

    Fab!! Maybe it's the matchy part of me, but I might like silver shoes better.

    I don't know if you feel bulky, but you don't look it by any stretch of the imagination!

  • replied 6 years ago

    WOW.  I love this.  You look great.  

  • Mona replied 6 years ago

    Oooohh the citron jeans are TDF...you look awesome in these colours.

  • Sona replied 6 years ago

    love #3. I really like how you put this together Joy. I am sure putting this together took some work and it really shows- it is outstanding in execution!

  • Jules replied 6 years ago

    You are so freaking fab! You blow my mind. When I grow up...

  • EveningMood replied 6 years ago

    Fantastic! Does not even need the citron tank in my anti matchy-matchy opinion :) You look lovely and super stylish!

  • Inge replied 6 years ago

    Not too much bulk at all. I love this so much exactly the way it is, Joy. And wow, how fantastic are these citron jeans on you. Very fab with the snakeskin booties too, they really are super versatile, aren't they.

  • Neel replied 6 years ago

    You never fail to amaze me!!! Just gorgeous! And that's a lovely interpretation of column of colour!!

  • amiable replied 6 years ago

    Wow, wow, wow - this is absolutely perfect!  And I'm going to copy it as soon as I get the mojo to wear lighter colors!

  • Ornella replied 6 years ago

    Quick, can someone tell Angie to get her citron crash helmet on before she even opens the thread.

    Joy, you simply glow!

  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    *eating you up*

    *chomp, chomp, chomp*

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    Thank you each for your kind comments. Please jeans were way out of my comfort zone when I bought them last spring.
    The outfit does not feel balky but I thought it looked a little bulky in the photo.
    Sona, I composed this outfit based on Angie's blog post, Only reversing the colors because that's what I have In my closet.
    Inge, the Python booties seem to go with everything. Dana I almost wore my silver wedge booties . I'll have to try them next time.
    Thank you all for the big boost to my confidence

  • replied 6 years ago

    Yay! I am so glad you kept those jeans. You look good.

  • Mochi replied 6 years ago

    Joy, the outfit is refreshing, unusual, unexpected, and stunning. 

  • Lynne replied 6 years ago

    Woohoo, Joy!  YLF!

    I love the citron and grey without the jacket - there seems, to my eye, to be a perfect balance of colour and proportion with the looser, softer sweater unadorned.  Love this outfit on you!

  • Caro in Oz replied 6 years ago

    Fab jeans & love the outfit.

  • annagybe replied 6 years ago

    Seriously good.

  • karymk replied 6 years ago

    So good Joy.

  • Debra replied 6 years ago

    Perfect :)

  • nancylee replied 6 years ago

    SO incredibly cool!  Love this look, Joy.

  • AJ replied 6 years ago

    I luv that you always seem to have appropriate pieces to jump on Angie's ensemble suggestions! 

    This outfit is FAB!  The jacket and boots add a luxe appeal to it.  Nicely styled!  You always make me smile, Joy!

  • fuzzylogic replied 6 years ago

    That outfit is complete gorgeousness!! You wear the colour palette so well! I love the peek-a-boo citron tank! It adds complexity and stops it from being block-block colour. Very clever! And those boots are very rock chic (drool, drool)......

    I'd watch out for Angie though- somebody give that women some more potato and pea morsels! :-)

  • Vicki replied 6 years ago

    Hello, Citron Sister!  You look so fab in this trio of colors and there is no bulk that I can see anywhere in these photos.  I no longer have those cute SE booties, and with your white jacket, everything is just perfect.

  • Lantana replied 6 years ago

    Whoa, Joy! Such fabulosity makes me gasp.
    Wear this often.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

    Wow Joy - this is fantastic. I love this colour combination on you (very flattering) and the proportions with the layers is just beyond perfect. 

  • shevia replied 6 years ago

    Absolutely gorgeous! 

  • Laura replied 6 years ago

    This is the prettiest outfit - so fresh on you! Did you get a million compliments? If I saw you on the street I would have raved over the color combo!
