Yellow Stripes

5 Jun

Brunette Beachy Wave Curls

JCrew Yellow Skirt with Striped Yellow Top

I don’t know what it is, but I’ve been all about the yellow lately! Maybe it’s because of the endless winter we had, but I could easily fill up my closet with this sunny shade right now. Next on my list? An all-yellow dress! I was shopping last night, and found the perfect one, but ended up putting it back since I already did some major damage in the black and white dress department (what is it with me and black and white dresses?).

Anyway, this J.Crew skirt has become a summer work staple. It has sort of a puffiness to it, but isn’t overly poufy (typing this at 11 p.m. is making my descriptions super intelligent). When it comes to work attire, I tend to develop a “uniform” each season. Winter: black J.Crew pixie pants. Summer: yellow J.Crew skirt with different tops in an attempt to appear as if I’m not wearing the same outfit constantly. I’m pretty excited that my June is booked solid with trips, thus the work outfits will be minimal the next few weeks. I’ll be heading to New York City next Thursday with my boyfriend for a weekend getaway, and then spending a week in Captiva Island with my family. Yes, I have already been stressing out about what outfits I’m packing for each trip. These are the things that keep me up at night! #FashionBloggerProblems

    First, your hair seriously looks amazing! I love it! Yellow is such a great color. I love how bright and vibrant it is. Also, I’m so excited for you and your trip to Captiva Island. I can’t remember if I mentioned it before but we went to Captiva Island for a day once and we loved it. It was perfect and the water was amazing!

      Thank you Grace! I do remember you telling me that about Captiva. It’s my family’s favorite vacation spot, so we’re so excited to go back in a few days!

        It is gorgeous on a lot of people but unfortunately it completely washes me out and makes me look sickly haha. I have to get yellow accessories instead of clothes 🙂 such a pretty outfit!

    Pretty skirt! How exciting that you will be going to NYC! I haven’t been there for 15+ years and would love to go back again someday. Sounds like June is going to be a great month for you! 🙂

      Thank you Stephanie! It was fun but so busy and tiring! I’m still catching up on sleep 🙂

    You look so pretty in yellow! Its one of my fave colors and I don’t think you can wear it too much. Kate Spade has a lovely yellow, lemon print dress that I’ve had my eye on for some time. Have a great time on your trips! xx…Cortneybre…

    1. I’ve been feeling the exact same way about yellow/chartreuse this year. (My blog unfortunately has documented the same yellow cardigan a billion times)
    2. Don’t feel bad about your black and white situation because I am the same way lol
    3. Take pics for us on your trips!

      Haha I love it! I think we’re all loving yellow after the long winter!

    xo, Amanda

    Too gorgeous! Yellow has never been a color I wear. Maybe I’ll try it out more! 🙂

    OMG OMG OMG how did I miss your hair?! So, so, good! Love the outfit too of course;)

    xx Cara

      Thanks Cara!! It feels so freeing. I look back at old pictures and cringe at how long it was. Less hair to maintain = more free time!

    You look really really good! I am totally inspired to get some stripes now! 🙂

    Yellow in all shades of neon or mustard are so in right now! Your outfit really took a fresh spin on above-the-knee skirts! 🙂
