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, :)...

  1. I think you pulled it off nicely. You wear Yellow so well that I'm tempted to go get mine. Like you said the secret is in knowing what hue works. You look great as always.

  9. Tickle me mellow yellow!!!... Fab! Delish! Gorg! Omg!!! Running out of words here... You killed it! Actually, one thing you should embrace about your warm undertones is that you can get away with murder when it comes to the range of colors that cam on rocked, but you are right about tge hue tho, very important. The dress is classically fabulous and fabulously constructed, which makes it even more gorg. Its angles n geometry complimented your perfect body shape... The long hair is still growing on me... Coat is fabulous! Luv it! CL need to start paying u some form of stipend for the free commercial. Played it safe with the makeup tho... Would have loved to see some purple play here instead of pink... Still killed it with the soft pink... U rock Idu!!! Über fab all the way.

    1. I honestly have a new found almost favorite color in yellow, lol. I'm such a structure lover when it comes to outfits and this one had me drooling. Fit like a glove too. Not a lot not to like. You and me both girl, as far as that hair. I could scarcely recognize me hahaha. Now I do cos I'm back to sporting my signature short hair. But you rock way more Tee, thank you...
