Growing up, my sister Megan always loved yellow- really, she still does! Maybe I was too focused on being different than her, or I really was just too in love with pink to notice, but I am just now realizing how great of a color yellow really is at 24 years old. I’ve grown my collection of yellow items, as well as chartreuse, and love the combinations I’ve been able to create with them. Being that yellow is a primary color, it honestly goes with just about any shade you can find on the color wheel!

I paired this yellow dress with my favorite Stella & Dot scarf for a cheerful look (a bit ironic, considering it had just stormed!). When I first wore this look, I wore it as shown. The second time I wore it (yesss, I rewear my looks all the time!) I threw on flat sandals for a more casual day-dress. I really love versatility haha!

Thanks for reading, have a good one!


De niña, mi hermana Megan siempre amaba el color amarillo- y todavía lo ama. Quizás tenía demasiadas ganas de ser mi propia persona, o estaba demasiado obsesionada con el color rosado para darme cuenta, pero acabo de aprender que el color amarillo es lo máximo. Tengo ahora muchas piezas de ropa tanto del color amarillo que verde amarillento y amo las combinaciones que he creado con esas piezas. Ya que amarillo es un color primario, combina muy bien con casi cada color.

Combiné este vestido amarillo con mi bufanda favorita de S&D para un look alegre (que fue un poco irónico porque había una tormenta antes de que sacamos las fotos). Cuando llevaba el look la primera vez (sí, llevo mis looks varias veces!) lo llevé como lo vean en la fotos. La segunda vez, lo combiné con sandalias para crear un look más informal. ¡Me gusta la versatilidad, no?! jaja!

¡Gracias por leer.. que tengan un lindo día!
