The color that does me no justice.


Tee: JCrew, Skirt: Goodwill ($3.99, option), Shoes: BassOutlet (option),
Necklace: Boutique (similar), Bag: Coach (option)

Bracelet: local shop, Bangle: Kate Spade

When I was in high school, I was a total tomboy.  If I showed you a picture from then, you would seriously laugh at me.  I had no idea how to work a blow dryer leaving my hair to dry however which way it liked and that turned into my hair "style" each day.  I experimented with makeup, but my mom didn't wear it so I had no clue what I was doing.  She didn't need it (and if we're being honest no highschooler does either) so I would go to school with maroon lipstick or foundation with no powder.  Terrible.  One day I would wear wind pants the color of snow and the next I would wear jeans and a button up.  My favorite color was yellow.  I wore it all. the. time.

And it looked and still looks terrible on me!  Yellow washes me out.  Strawberry blonde hair and pale skin do not look good against any shade of yellow.  Trust me.  I've tried them all.  My love for yellow has never faded so I've found other ways to wear it that are more flattering and less "washy outty."

It's important to remember when shopping that even though a particular color might not look good on you, you can incorporate it into your wardrobe by accessorizing.  For example, this yellow handbag.  It gives me that pop of color I'm wanting in a way that is flattering to me and my outfit.  I'm so glad that I 1. figured out yellow wasn't my color and 2. figured out ways to continue rocking it since I love it so much!  It's tragic to think you can't wear your favorite color.

Some ways I'm looking to incorporate more sunshiney goodness into my wardrobe:

    You are a girl after my own heart! I was a tomboy, too. It was just me and my brothers growing up, and I didn't learn how to put on makeup until college haha.. Even so, you have grown into such a beautiful woman and person. Go girl!

    You and your hubs look great. I also think I love every yellow item you have here!

  5. I feel like yellow would look good on you! This really is a cute handbag. I like the idea of choosing a color you don't love "on" you as an accessory color.
