Outfit: Say Yes to Yellow

268_HHS-yellow-black-outfit 268_HHS-yellow-black-altpose 268_HHS-yellow-black-detail

Before I started blogging I would’ve vehemently stayed away from yellow. I was sure it would douse my pale skin with some sort of jaundice effect. I am glad I found a way to give yellow a try because I love it! Clearly it is also a reader favorite because it is pinned like crazy. Maybe you want to give yellow a try too so I thought I’d share with you some of my most liked yellow outfits. Go. Be Bold.

Outfit: Yellow and Gray

This is another fabulous sweater I received during my Banana Republic Factory Story outing. I decided to dress it up with a gray pencil skirt, tights and heels. Next, I think I’ll try it in a more casual look.

So my husband and I have an ongoing conversation on the “right” way to spell gray (or grey). It seems either is perfectly fine but I notice many sites use both spellings and I try to stick with just one. Where do you land on this important topic?

I hear that Fall is coming. I see it in all the magazines but So Cal has not gotten the message. I’m not complaining though because I’m happy to keep wearing skirts and all my bright colors. I’ve been in CA for over 15 years now but my MI upbringing still has me resenting Fall as the precursor to Winter. So I’ve been trying to find things I’m looking forward to this Fall/Winter. Here is what I have so far:

  • Wearing boots. I even have a new pair that I got on my last trip to MI that I’ve been dying to wear.
  • Stew. My husband makes the best stews (no veggies for this girl) and I’m looking forward to the warm deliciousness.

Yep, that’s all I’ve got so far. I’ll keep working on it.

Outfit: Color Makes Me Happy

Aren’t these bright colors fun? It was only a year ago that my wardrobe was mostly gray and black. I still love a crisp black ensemble but I’m so glad I pushed myself beyond my comfort zone and bought colorful pieces. What’s your relationship with color?

Outfit: Eye Love It

I’m loving eyelet material that is popular right now. It’s like a more structured version of lace. Alluring but not overtly sexy and definitely work appropriate. You can find dresses, pants, shirts, t-shirts and skirts in this fabulous style.

Outfit: Dress For Success

I’m feeling a little under the weather today (thus my late in the day post) but luckily I took some pictures last week when I was feeling more comfortable. This is a new shirt from The Limited that I got for under $30 due to a 50% off sale they had. I love a good deal!

I’m also distracted because I’ve launched a new business. I won’t go into all the details here so please head over to Think Brite Be Brite and see how to double your happiness!

Outfit: Color Trend – Yellow

I just wouldn’t have believed that I could come to love yellow as part of my wardrobe. It can be a hard color for us pale types but yellow jeans are definitely a safe bet. I have worn these jeans with bold colors and with neutrals (see some more images below) and also have a yellow shirt that I am quite fond of. I’m not on the hunt for the right pair of yellow shoes.

Outfit: Dots and Stripes




Since I’m not much of a floral print kind of girl, I love to mix dots with stripes. When I see floral and stripes on other people, I think it looks great. Maybe when/if I find the exact right floral print for me, I’ll get to share in the fun.

This lightweight blazer is perfect for spring both in material and color. I wore this combo to the Orange County Creative Connections meet up. It’s a great group of creative and stylish women so it was the right kind of outing for this bold combo.

In other exciting news, today is my ninth wedding anniversary! Most people that know me think it’s very appropriate that my anniversary is on April Fool’s Day. I’m never quite sure how to take that comment but I usually put it in the I’m-cool-and-quirky-and-unexpected-perhaps-even-silly column. I can’t believe it’s been nine years – they’ve flown by and we’re still crazy about each other. I’m one lucky lady!
