Hello Yellow












besides being a compound word made of "yell" and "ow," the throw away flavor for most candies, the color of urine and bees (ive still never been stung in twenty-two years by the way, knock on wood! because i run like my life depends on it when i so much as hear buzzing), yellow has been and always will be directly linked to happiness. sunshine, bananas, and baby ducks. whats not to love? and this purse (another lucky fabb grab bag gem) proves the brighter the better. im obsessed with its box shape and locket clasp and cant help but smile when i see it hanging in my closet or better yet on my shoulder. i decided to channel my instinctual love for vintage-esque ensembles and wear my all-black ruffle-topped romper, bowl cap and ankle strapped heels in order to truly showcase the beauty a simple pop of color can bring. if youre like me, continuously finding yourself drawn to neutrals and classic black but want to refrain from looking drab and dreary, enter yellow. you cant go wrong. theres a reason life gives us lemons out of all the other fruits.

whitney is one of my newest followers but immediately feels like my oldest friend. her words are the epitome of kind, consistently making me blush with gratitude and genuine joy. i literally smile from the moment i get a notification email that shes responded to a post and continue to long after ive read it. she is a model reader, the type you blog for in the first place. all i can say is, yellow has got some tough competition. she brings such a rare sparkle to the world around her, with a contagious smile she doesnt just live but engages life. beautiful in every way a person can be, with a true appreciation for the little things, whitney will have you altogether smitten from the second you visit her site. thank you so much for inspiring heartfelt happiness, you are truly treasured!

  5. BLUSHING. Thank you so so much for your unbelievably kind words and your outpouring of love towards me. I feel so blessed and overwhelmed by it all. So encouraged to hear that my smile is contagious since most times I can't keep it off my face...your words are too sweet. I am overcome with joy.

    Love the vintage feel to this that the hat and shoes bring it. I have total shoe envy. These are darling with the shorter heel and the ankle strap. I feel like those could be in a closet forever! And I am a huge fan of the romper. I own two and it takes a great deal of self control to not put one on every day in the summer--plus they are great bathing suit coverups! Even though red is my all time favorite color (hearts, lipstick, strawberry popsicles), yellow comes in a close second. You can't help but smile when it pops up.

    lovely post as always and filled with kindness and warmth that blessed my heart. xoxo Whit

    1. thanks jessi! im definitely a fan of the coralish red, but not necessarily for hair! haha nothing different here (i dont have the guts to color it or the cash to upkeep it) but my natural color definitely has red in it so i see what you mean, and the editing might have brought that out even more! youre too sweet!! i hope ankle straps never leave xo

  20. I like how you comment on you commenters...nice touch! Not sure on the time question. I think how you're handling it is right. It takes self-discipline to say this is when I'm posting, tweeting, etc. and that's it! I love the yellow with the black. I have a gray outfit I wore with red, and you're right, the color with neutrals really pops! Visiting from Whatever Works Wednesday. Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com
