Kate Spade Beeline Billie!!! God I wish I could wear yellow....
LOVE LOVE all of these looks.

I really love the combo of blue and yellow, probably because it's my alma mater's colors. And it makes me think Emma is a Bruin! WOOT!

That Kate Spade cardigan is too cute for words!

Megan said...

I wish that vintage dots skirt wasn't so expensive, I love the shape of it!

And I might also wish it was a different color because, unlike our girl, I cannot pull off yellow.

I almost got that Clinging Blossoms cardigan, but it didn't like my boobs. :( Too bad, it was even cuter in person!

Great finds, Danielle, as always!

P.S. Teresa, blue and gold were my elementary school colors, ha!

I really loved this outfit. Definitely one of my favourite Emma numbers, and there are so many!

Some really nice pieces here! I LOVE these colours together.

you're going to make me buy blue aren't you? AREN'T YOU?!
i have discovered i can wear yellow, and have started hunting for my own insane yellow blouse, so maybe i'll need a navy cardigan to go with that. which then needs a matching skirt...
I think you and Emma Pillsbury have finally broken me of my all-black-and-grey streak. with *yellow*

I count myself lucky that I snagged the original sweater when first featured on your site. Thank you thank you THANK you!!!

My husband, however, is thinking he'll need to ban me from WWEPW forever due to my addiction to be as Emma as possible.

OOOH! I lovelovelove the Anthropologie Alena Skirt. It looks fun to spin around in.

You know, when you spin around and your skirt goes all poofy and it makes you feel all romantic. Then dizzy. Then nauseous.

There's a blog called Presser Foot that made a copycat version of that sweater and shows you step by step directions on how to make your own. The link to the beginning of the project is


Not quite as nice as buying it at the store, but it looks pretty cute!

Yellow is my favorite!! I actually just ordered the outfit on the left of the budget look. Can't wait until it gets here.
