Camouflage & Neon Yellow


Hi Everyone! Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I just wanted to stop by with a quick hello before the weekend is over. Today, I have a very simple outfit, but what makes it pop are the colors and patterns. I missed wearing this camouflage jacket so I decided to take her out from the closet. I really wanted a brighter outfit to embrace the green grass and sunny rays so I paired it with a neon yellow top and white jeans. I've seen a lot of different camouflage jacket styles, but I really like this one the most because it has a couple of rhinestones, brass gold button and zipper accents, and most importantly, a more structured look compared to other jackets. This jacket is actually perfect to wear during the Spring and the Fall. The jacket is feminine but still gives a tough look to the outfit.


Jacket : Zara sz XS (similar here and here), Top : H&M sz XS (seen here)
Bottoms : Old Navy sz 0 (on sale here, similar here), Shoes : Ann Taylor sz 5
Accessories : Necklace from H&M, Rings from C. Wonder (similar here and here)
Bag : Rebecca Minkoff (here or other colors here)

When I reviewed this shirt, I did it really quick be pinpointing the problems I had with it.When I tried this on, I didn't like how the bra lines would appear on the top. When I tried it on with a tank top underneath, the top would cling onto the tank underneath. Without thinking, I passed. This wouldn't be a problem if you only intended to wear this shirt as a layering piece, but for me, I prefer it if it was more than just a layering tank top, especially if it was $24.95. I guess this was a problem for a lot of people since they seem to still be in stores, in all sizes. I decided to give this tank top another shot at it weeks later, this time with my seamless nude bra, and tada!, I don't know why I didn't think about a seamless nude bra the first time around.


These are probably my favorite and my only white pair of jeans. I've tried different pairs of white jeans/pants from other retailers, and they just aren't as fitting or as crisp. I've also tried on white pants, where you would just see the rectangular pocket lining showing from underneath. Honestly, that is a big no-no for me, I don't want to question the designer's work, but I just don't find it attractive to have two white squares on your behind. What I like about these skinny jeans is that they are very petite-friendly, almost a little too petite friendly actually. The sizing definitely runs smaller than your usual, I fit these perfectly if I was on an empty stomach. The white is very crisp and clean, but not bleached looking, so it looks more expensive than it actually is. However, I have to say that I've seen last year's version of these pants, and I was not impressed at all. From what I recall, the material didn't even feel like jeans and it seemed to attract a lot of dust/lint and were very cheaply/poorly made. I haven't seen this years version yet, so I can't say if anything has changed, but I hope they did, because their fit is probably the best I've come across so far. My biggest challenge though is to keep these jeans white. I don't wear these often because I'm so afraid of getting them dirty or stained.

How do you keep your whites white? If you have any suggestions or tips, I would greatly appreciate it!


Thank you so much for reading! :)

  1. I love this outfit! I'm such a big fan of camo, although I haven't managed to make it look good on me, I especially love how you paired it here!

  2. What I really love about this outfit is that you paired the jacket with such feminine and "girly" pieces! Hehe white can really be our enemy! I guess you just need to find the right products to keep them from turning grey :)

    Much love,

  3. You look so chic here Christine! You're so lucky you have the NY skyline as your backdrop. :) I've never liked camo at all but I do like your jacket very much. The H&M scalloped top looks great on you and I'm glad you changed your mind. I actually wear my mint/aqua colored bra under the lime color and it somehow shows through less than my nude bra.

    I was curious about the ON Rockstar jeans in white but I have fit issues with them. I tried petite versus short and I think I'm in between sizes 2S and 4S right now. The 4S butt is a big saggy and the thigh is also a bit loose. lol I have 3 pairs of white legging jeans and a few pairs of white shorts. I have a washer and dryer in our condo so it's nice to be able to wash stains out when they are fresh. I spray on Shout and let it soak for a bit before I wash them in cold water.

    Did you get the RIT whiteners and brighteners yet? I finally ordered the iPhone 5 screen protectors that you recommended.

  5. I love white clothes but have such a hard time keeping them white. I usually have to brighten them with oxiclean. Love the way you styled the camo jacket. I like pairing mine with pink. Great look!

  6. I love this look Christine! Your camo jacket is awesome - I've been looking for both a camo jacket and a pair of skinny jeans but none have been the "one" yet haha :) I also like how you mixed a super girly look underneath with your camo jacket! As for keeping my whites white, I don't think this is really a tip but more of a mindset. I realized that all my clothing items or handbags/shoes that I freak out about keeping clean (scuff free if they're leather) always end up getting dirty or ruined, but the things I don't care about never seem to get dirty or banged up no matter what I do. So with my white jeans, that's what I've started doing. I wear them regardless of what I might be doing or where I may be eating and don't bother trying to care about whether they stay clean or not, and they have yet to get stained (let's hope I don't jinx that)! But if accidents do happen, one of the best (and my favorite) spot cleaners is the little oxy clean spray on one :)

  8. Thanks Jess! :) I'll have to try wearing mint/aqua underneath, I never thought of that lol I think the petite version of the ON Rockstar Jeans are way too tiny, I can barely breathe in them. If you were in between sizes, I would probably size down because they do stretch a little on the long run, but I absolutely love these, especially at the low price. I actually just purchased the RIT whiteners&brighteners and Shout. I love Shout, it's a life saver, it took off grease stains that I got from hotpotting but I have yet to try the RIT ones yet. I'll update you when I try them after they arrive! How do you like your screen protector so far?
