You Had Me at Yellow


Top: Target (shop similar)
Jeans: Gap (shop similar)
Belt: H&M
Wedges: Target (shop)
Necklace: thrifted


You can't tell in these pics because my hair always covers up my earrings, but in addition to my newly thrifted necklace and my coral bracelet, I'm wearing huge teal earrings.  I tried to get a good pic, but I didn't have time...(which I will ask you 30 for 30 bloggers about tomorrow).  I'm celebrating a warm San Diego day with my bright yellow tank and big, colorful accessories.

This yellow tank is an instant mood-booster.  Seriously, is it possible to feel depressed when your shirt looks so happy?

I was skeptical of yellow on me.  I think I was turned off because I usually tried on more mustard-like yellows which blended too much with my skin.  But even after I fell in love with this yellow dress back in 2008...

100% silk Maggie London dress...scored for under $20 at Macy's!  

...it didn't click that I needed to go for the brighter shades.  I kept doing the mustard yellow and kept getting disappointed...until I bought that bright yellow tank.   I have been enlightened by bright yellow, and there's no turning back.  I'm smitten.

  6. I think bright colors would look great on you as well!  I really do.  Your coloring seems on the medium/darker end of the spectrum and I think some bright colors would pop on you.
