Yellow and Burnt Orange + Style With a Smile Link Up

September 15, 2020
Yellow and Burnt Orange, River Island yellow trousers

Although summer has returned briefly this week I’m working more autumnal colours into my outfits. Rust, cinnamon, ochre and olive look glorious in the early autumn sunshine. This yellow and burnt orange combination captures the warmth and vibrancy of this time of year when the sun is hot but the leaves are starting to turn.

You may recall that I also have these trousers in orange; I love the high-waisted style and the gold buttons, so when I saw them on sale in multiple colours I bought these and a navy pair too. The fabric is slightly thinner than the orange ones, but seem a little more generous on the waist…which is a good thing. High-waisted trousers can be unforgiving, especially after a hearty lunch!

I just happened to be wearing this top when I tried the trousers on and was surprised by how much I liked the yellow and burnt orange together

This outfit came about because I was trying these trousers on to see if I could still do the zip up (lockdown didn’t so my waistline any favours!). But to my relief they still fit…and I can breathe in them, which is always a bonus. I just happened to be wearing this top when I tried the trousers on and was surprised by how much I liked the yellow and burnt orange together.

The tan bucket bag and cinnamon mules add depth and give the outfit a more autumnal feel. The shoes were a bargain at only £11 reduced from £35. They’re from the vegan range of footwear at Marks & Spencer. Despite the fairly high heel they’re reasonably comfortable, although I wouldn’t want to walk too far in them!

The chunky wooden necklace is years old and I nearly always wear it with this top. I remember thinking it was expensive at the time – the grand sum of £15! Well, it turned out to be a good buy because I’ve worn it loads. I wouldn’t think twice about spending that on a necklace now!

    It’s sad isn’t it? so many outfits not worn this year due to lockdown. At least the trousers still fit Emma. I gained a few pounds during this time too! xx

  2. Emma, so pretty a combination! When I see you I am reminded that I need to try different colors combos too. Love the warm tones with the trousers. The wood necklace compliments this look very nicely! I live for Fall colors!
    enjoy your week!

  3. I’m really liking all those buttons-and you look so good in them. I hope we all can eventually get to go and do things. And you necklace-$15 would be a steal for something like that nowadays, wouldn’t it? Love the whole look, Terri

  4. Love this color mix! The neutral accessories bring the whole look together nicely. I adore that necklace!

    Oh yes, I know all about high waisted skirts and going out for dinner. Not the best idea. But these trousers are beautiful, I love the golden buttons! Beautiful to too. And that necklace!

  7. Those pants look amazing on you! Thank goodness for small mercies like being able to zip up pants easily after not wearing them for a while! Haha! I haven’t attempted my denim yet and I’m dreading it a bit! I love these colors together!

  8. Emma you’re absolutely right, those two colours DO go beautifully together! I’m very partial to a high-waisted trouser, these are totally fabulous 😀

    Oddly, I’ve always thought of yellow as a spring color, but it works quite well in among the fall colors! Those slacks are really cute. I like the buttons too.

    I’m glad you were able to fit into your trousers—I have several pairs that I’ve been putting off trying on because I’m afraid of what the last six months have wrought 😉

    Such a great late summer color combo!

  17. Grace says:

    Love love love this color combination!! It’s so fun and unexpected. I’m also obsessed with the high waisted pants and sailor buttons. Don’t you just love when you unexpectedly stumble across a great outfit combo? I always seem to come up with my best outfits when I’m doing laundry and see pieces in the hamper next to each other…
    Hope you’re having a great Wednesday!

    Miles of smiles,

    Wow! This is such a fabulous outfit and so colorful! Love it!

    I’m sad that a lot of my new garments don’t fit – I’ve been too greedy over lock-down. Can’t wait to get back to the gym and lose some weight! Great outfit, I like to see new combinations. Jacqui x
