Sister Style: A Pop of Yellow

Sister Style 1Sister Style 1Sister Style 1Hi there! Today we're wearing pops of yellow. We never claim to be the trendiest girls on the block, but it's always fun to try to make a trend your own. I've been looking for some colored denim for a while and I finally found my match with these mustard cropped jeans. We LOVE yellow!

Hope your week is going great! Emma is getting ready for a camping trip this weekend and I have a home inspection early Friday morning. (yay! time to measure stuff!) With August coming up we are making lists of ways to soak up summertime. What are your favorite summer activities with friends and family? XO. elsie + emma

  • omg! you could totally rock these outfits out with a rocker rebel statement necklace from! it would totally make the outfit pop! <3

  • I love yellow too and these mustard jeans are amazing! I also adore the small pop of yellow and stripes that Emma is wearing!

  • Elsie, you look so Zooey Deschanel in your side view shot, I love it!

  • I have a pair of mustard yellow pencil jeans that I just adore!

  • love these outfits! I always love the look of yellow, but look terrible wearing it! Emma’s outfit would definitely be something I would wear if yellow worked with my skin tone. Maybe the little peek would be doabe… I’ll have to try it. 🙂

  • Love yellow! And love both of your styles. This weekend I am off to Faerieworlds in Eugene, Oregon. What is Faerieworlds? Google it 🙂

  • I love yellow!!! I can’t wait till summer and when all my baby weig has disappeared for me to wear my funky pants again!!

  • Gasp! I have those yellow pants too! Now I feel so fashionable 🙂 Also am totally in love with Emma’s neon sports bra! Brilliant.

  • Love the yellow jeans, especially against the grey wall. Favorite summer activity this year has been picnics. We just moved close to an adorable park and it’s close enough to walk to. I get out there as much as I can, even if it’s just for 45 minutes to sit in the grass and read. So relaxing. Have fun camping and inspecting!

  • My favorite summer things are ice cream and eating outside and taking my shoes off to stand in the grass!

  • Ah, summer is the best time for yellow. I’m so glad it came back in. Colored pants are the bomb. Cute outfits ya’ll!

  • Pretty! I am in love with yellow.


  • Adorable!! Check out my blog 😀

  • I love the yellow pants Elsie! And Emma’s top is too cute!

  • I have always hated the color mustard….until a few months back when I started ot see it paired with turquoise and other awesome colors, now I can’t get enough of it and it is for sure on my fall staple list!

  • Love that shade of yellow on the jeans! I saw a cardigan in the same colour yesterday. I wish I’d bought it now!


  • I love the yellow jeans! SO CUTE. and that striped top is so perfect! I have to have it! Lovely outfits!

  • Yellow is one of my favorite colors–those yellow pants are so great!

    The Glossy Life

  • Can I just say: I’ve been reading your blogs for about a year now, and you both still inspire me to enjoy life and live in the moment. Good luck with all the big, big happenings in your lives right now. 🙂

  • You guys are so cute! I love your yelow pants Elsie, and Emma’s striped shirt is adorable. I always love looking at your little outfit posts. Thanks for sharing : )


  • Love both the outfits! Yellow is such a fun colour – it needs more love!

  • I always love yellow…it’s a great pick-me-up color!


  • Both great outfits. Love the black and white top and what a cool yellow jeans!

  • Elsie – you look like Zooey Deschanel in these photos! So pretty!

  • I love camping! It’s been hard this year because everyone is so busy we can’t even get a full weekend to go. I got so tired of waiting I told my neighbors we should have a camping party in our back yards. Tents, bon fires, a trampoline and a slip-n-slide. It’s going to be a new take on one of my favorite things!

  • Those yellow jeans are incredible! I find myself collecting yellow objects (I even have a yellow car now!), it’s just the best colour- nothing is more summery. Need that colourful pop in gloomy old England, that’s for sure.

    I’ve just started blogging again, in large part to the incredibly inspirational Beautiful Mess! Thank you for inspiring me to start up again. If anyone would like to come over and say hello that would be lovely.

  • Also I posted a look based on yellow here

  • Sorry but I think you are the trendiest sisters on the block! 🙂 Lovely post – I adore the combo of Emma’s stripy top with the neon bra!

  • Love these outfits, you both look gorgeous! My favourite things to do in summer are hanging out with friends, lounging by the beach, looking through charity shops and eating ice cream! This summer I’m also going to be floral crown making/wearing!

  • You look great in colored jeans!

  • Love the yellow jeans Elsie! I really like coloured denim. So far I have a pair of red jeans (because I saw Jennifer Nettles from Sugarland wearing some and she looked awesome!)but I’m on the hunt for more colours

  • Your outfits are lovely! They feel summery but could easy be worn in fall as well!


  • Love it!! I have very fair skin and also blonde hair so yellow doesn’t really suit me, but I love the colour so I always use it to give pops to my style!
    The jeans are really cool!

    Post for him today – hairstyles

  • I love the subtlety of Emma’s yellow bra and the way it manches with the outfit! Great idea!

  • Love the bright jeans! I love how you girls always have fun in photos! I like to do that too! I hope Emma has a great camping trip! Camping is always so fun! Picnics in the summer are great too!

  • I love yellow, too! I think I’m going to wear a black shirt/mustard yellow skirt today (lunch date with my boyfriend 🙂 ).

  • Be vigilant during your home inspection! Things that don’t seem like a big deal (like anything that needs to be brought up to code) end up costing a ton…lesson learned the hard way! Make ’em fix it before you buy 🙂

    Good luck!!

  • By itself, this will keep the wort temperature more steady than the fermentor being just in the air, but you can also keep an eye on the temp with a fermometer strip (I think Northern Brewer carries them.

  • I just had a change of heart and bought a yellow dress for a wedding! Really lovely. 🙂

  • I love both pairs of jeans. The mustard color really works on Elsie. They’re very relaxed, easy, and cute outfits.

  • The beach is my favourite activity of course!
    Unfortunately it’s still winter here. So sad.
    You two look great… as always!

    The Lovelorn

  • You two look so lovely! Love your lip colour Emma!

  • You gals make casual look so good! 🙂


  • THOSE YELLOW PANTS are BEYOND beautiful. Worthy of obnoxious cap locks, for real.


  • I think you two can definitely claim to be the coolest girls on the block. no competition. Love your style!

  • I can’t wait for the annual summer trek to northern Michigan with my family. It’s nice to take a break away from the crazy suburbs of D.C. and go to a county where there’s only one traffic light.

    You’re giving me more courage to try colored jeans!

  • Those mustard pants are soo cute, Elsie!!

  • Love Elsie’s pants! You both look totally adorable.

  • I really love that second look!
    The yellow jeans are awesome too. But I like the understated yellow look better~

  • I love the yellow jeans! Your girls can wear anything!

  • Love the mustard jeans! You look so fabulous elsie! And emma I love that striped top. You too are so cute.

  • Yellow is one of my favorite summer hues. Love that stripped top over the yellow sports bra.

  • SO cute!! I love yellow anything! It’s such a happy color! 🙂


  • I’m adoring mustard~ as a blondie, its hard for me to find nice yellows that don’t make my porcelain skin look SICK! Our fave summer activities? Beating the heat in SEOUL S. Korea is rough, but we have been digging Max Beer and Baseball games, biking past rice paddies, and loving having our families visit us this summer!!

  • I love Ems outfit! The neon bra is totally cute!

    xoxo Sarah

  • Elsie, I love your shoes. I’m not the biggest fan of yellow but I love your pants. I love Emma’ pop of yellow, i always find myself doing this when i want a pop of color!! & with August around the corner I’m making a summer list too.

  • Love how casual these looks are! Elsie’s yellows pants are to die for and Emma’s striped blouse gives me butterflies! Adorable!

  • Oh, LOVE Emma’s tank. Her style meshes with mine so often. Basic and simple, but effective. Her sandals compliment the stripes in the tank perfectly.

  • I love the platform shoes! And I like the little pop of yellow under Emma’s tank. It made me double take! Love it!

  • Just bought the sandals Em is wearing and actually wore them in my outfit post today! I’m always hesitant to mix yellow and black, so I don’t end up looking like a bumblebee, but you look great in this! Not a hint of bumblebee to be found 🙂
