Ask Alison | Style my Yellow Jeans

Hello, pretties!   I have a special guest to introduce to you today.  Her name is Sarah and she’s the spunky sweetheart behind Tucker Up.  She’s a newlywed (6 months ago), just moved into her first home and shows us her budget friendly ways to look great and makes pretty things.  She’s a super cute total package and I have a feeling you’re going to love her too!
 Hey Y’all, I’m Sarah from Tucker Up. I am super-duper excited to be hangin’ out over here at Get Your Pretty On!  

Just to fill you in on my little life I will give you a quick rambling of what Tucker Up is composed of. For starters, I live with my hunky husband in a suburb of Dallas. We have two pups (full grown dogs) named Wrigley and Bailey. We bought our first house in April and then Tucker Up was born in order to have an organized space to rant about the life of a newly married couple settling into their first home.  

When Alison asked me to “get my pretty on” I got pretty nervous because, well, if you haven’t noticed, she has pretty awesome fashion. After much deliberation about what kind of outfit I wanted to showcase, I decided on doing a general outfit post. I know bor-ring, but this outfit is perfect for “winter” in Texas, and it is literally one of my favorite outfits. ever. Hey, that counts for something, right?! 

Ya see…here in the dirty south it doesn’t get that cold. We have cold days here and there, but I have been know to wear shorts on Christmas. I loveee (like literally love) this outfit to pieces because it is wintery enough, yet I am not in a sweater…because, well, a sweater isn’t really needed much in Texas! Did I also mention that this outfit is full of color, much like my personality?? Ha!

 The shirt is from Francesca’s (aka Franny’s as I call it). Lu-uvvv it. It is “long-sleeved” yet sheer, so it looks as though I dressed for winter, yet this shirt could easily be a spring and summer shirt. Score. Winning. Makes me wanna holla like a balla! 

The mustard jeans are from Target. These jeans are pretty thin, but who can resist mustard colored jeans? Ummm, no one. Hello? Have you seen Pinterest lately? If you don’t have colored jeans you bess get on it, gurl! 

Oh, and these boots…let a girl tell ya ’bout her boots. The grey-babies were 40% off at Franny’s making them a whopping $40. FORTY dollars people. That is like striking gold, I’d even stretch it to platinum. The red-seamed zipper up the back makes me giddy like a school girl crushin’ on her man boy at the playground. Ahh, love.  

At first I thought this outfit resembled that of a clown incognito. Then I realized that is basically me, a walking clown, and proud of it. The bright colors cheer up a dreary winter day and I am in a happy mood right when the fabric hits my bod.   

So, what do ya think?! Would you ‘clown’ it up with me? I bet Alison would 🙂 

Thanks, again, for Alison for having me over here at her oh-so fashionable blog! 

Well, Sarah, pull up the clown car and bust out the red noses.  I’d love to clown it up with you anyday, girl!  You and your outfit instantly put me in a great mood.  Your sunny yellow pants and color pairings are sure to make anyone smile.  Hmm, I’ve never told someone their pants make me smile.  🙂
Thanks so much for sharing your fun personality and your style with us today!
I have a special Ask Alison for you that fits perfectly with Sarah’s guest post…

Hi Alison!  I bought a pair of mustard yellow jeans at the end of summer.  They worked great for fall but I’m running out of ideas for how to pair them up for winter and I want to get more use from them.  Can you give me some fresh suggestions for cooler weather?  Thanks – Jenn B. 

Hey Jenn!  Yellow jeans are so much fun and their life can definitely be extended into the winter months.  There’s nothing better than adding a little sunshine to your outfit on a winter’s day, am I right? Here are some warm and cozy ideas for pairing them up.    

1.  Dot your I’s – Polka dots in blue hues are the perfect compliment to these pants.

2.  Color block it – Add a color blocked scarf to this look, pair with a solid top in a complimentary color for instant style.

3.  Stripes are nice – A cozy striped cardi or sweater adds the perfect amount of fun.  Pair with a tee or tank in a primary color.

4.  Graphic animals – the graphic print of this animal sweater is a cute way to add some warmth to your day.

5.  Chunky prints – This warm sweater with mixed graphics is the perfect partner for these pants.

  • Love the mixture of colors. The mustard yellow jeans are such a lovely tone almost a jewel tone because it’s not too bright but also not boring. Very chic.

  • She is adorable! What a cute post. Mustard yellow is probably my favorite color to play with when dressing, so I love this outfit. Loving the boots too! Heather

    • PrettyOn

      Heather – I thought of you when doing this post! You pull off mustard yellow so well.

  • Sarah is really pretty & I love her adorable hair. You did such a great job styling these mustard skinnies and Sarah’s blouse is pretty. I can see she’s got that Newlywed Glow going on.

    I also love the set with the mustard pants, you did. I am eying a pair of mustard skinnies (and I want at least 2 other pairs of colored jeans like in Turquoise, Cobalt & Kelly Green). I also need a pair of Bright Red. I have red jeans but they are more of a dark Peppermint Red. I think I will treat myself to them (on sale of course) after giving birth.

      Isn’t she cute? Colored jeans are SO much fun. I’ve enjoyed experimenting with them this fall and winter. Dark red would be great!

  • I do have a pair of mustard jeans that I haven’t worn in while
    I need to get those babies out, thanks for inspiring me

  • I just bought an awesome pair of neon yellow jeans from JCrew – can’t wait to try a few of these suggestions! 🙂 Thanks!!
