A Swatch Of Sunshine
Wearing certain colors has been a little daunting for me because even though I admire them, I don’t feel like I can pull them off. Yellow is one of those colors. I don’t know of a lot of people that think they look great in yellow, including myself :(. But now I’m thinking that if you find the right hue that works perfectly for your skin tone, you can actually pull off any and every color. I am definitely seeing yellow in a flattering new light. The mustards, marigolds, neon yellow, or even set in a vibrant print, I’m experimenting, relaxing into yellow, the color of friendship and happy. I'm putting aside some or all of the caution that held me back prior and letting the color yellow butter me up. And guess what? I'm loving it.
I took a break from prints and embraced monochrome in this bright yellow dress. The color yellow stimulates the feel good feelings in our brains and honestly, my affinity to it is in full bloom. My bold yellow dress of choice had an architectural structure that made it even funner. I was going to pair it with a beautiful stripped black and white fur vest. A look in the mirror screamed ‘bumblebee’. I love bumblebees but not on me, lol. So I played it safe with a long black coat instead. Will I be stocking my closet with the color me happy yellow? Heck yeah, I plan on it. I’m going sunny side up in tune with my new found love for yellow. Why blend in when you can stand out in a bright hot hue? Do you yellow? Do you love? Does it fill you with dread? Follow the rule of thumb and start out with one accessory to brighten up your look and work your way up. Have fun, :)...
