Mellow, Cheery Yellow

Last week was stressful and trying. And after Friday’s tragedy, the week ended on a sad note (my heart goes out to those in Aurora). I had so much going on and on top of a busy week, both my parents had serious health scares. They are both doing better now and will be fine, but it was not fun awaiting diagnoses. As I get older, it’s hard for me to come to terms with the fact that my parents are not the all-knowing, indestructible people I thought they were growing up. Even though it is a little scary, it feels good to know that I can finally help or be there for them for a change.

Things finally started to settle down on Saturday and Sunday. Sometimes it feels good to get dressed up for no real reason, so I threw on this cheery, head-to-toe yellow ensemble to get out of the house for sushi and a movie (Dark Knight Rises was awesome). The color choice (not to mention this love wall) brightened my look – and my outlook.

Even though I love the color yellow, it’s one of the few colors that doesn’t look good on me. Instead of going for true, bright yellow, I opted for a pale yellow shade on bottom and an olive tone yellow hue on top. I love the fullness of this skirt and the sheer paneling on the collared blouse.

Blouse: H&M, skirt: Asos (on super sale!), heels: BCBG (old, these are cute and work for any dressy occasion, particularly summer weddings and showers), petite clutch: vintage, studs: vintage, bracelets: Sheila Fajl and Jessica Elliot (bangles), leather and gold bracelet purchased in Italy years ago and vintage (triple strand), rings: S.Y.L.K. (owl), Gorjana, XIV Karats and Ariel Gordon (bands).

Beauty note: I didn’t feel like doing much pampering so I threw my hair up on my head. Then, I wrapped the half bun in a thin jute rope for a summer-y look.

Swing(in’) Mint Dress

Sadly, we only have a few more days left in paradise. I am soaking up the last few rays of Hawaii sun and beautiful scenery while I can. I can’t wait to share some photos from the trip once I’m back.

These were taken before we left for vacation. This swing dress is feminine and fun with its pretty mint color, A-line cut and full skirt. I combined the 50s ladylike style with beach-y accessories and pops of red/hot pink. The straw fedora has been one of my go-to Hawaii staples.
