Lookbook: Mellow Yellow

I have never ever worn yellow. I just don’t think it looks good on me. I usually just pass over all the yellow clothes until recently where I have discovered that I love this neon yellow on me.

What I’m Wearing:
Cardi: from Nordstrom
Tank: Lush
Tank (underneath): Banana Republic
Jeans: Levis Eco
Shoes: Bally

The tank looks lighter in the picture but in real life it’s closer to fluorescent yellow. I couldn’t resist the ruffles either, as you know, I love ruffles! The cardi is a really good lightweight one for the spring/summer, I love the elbow length sleeves and the pattern embedded in are little blue hearts. Too cute! I added the white tank as I wore this to the office and I’m always very conscious of cleavage. Cleavage at work is just a big NO-NO to me. Especially when you work in HR.


These photos were processed with the “Get Faded (Spring)” action from Totally Rad Actions as explained on this post. There was some sun out and I wanted to bring it out more on the pictures, so the action brings a warm glow to it.

Oh, but you know what was my favorite part of my outfit? My Hello Kitty ring!

Hello Kitty ring

I think this ring is about 5 years old, J got it for me when we first discovered Tarina Tarantino and I have another one that he bought me that’s just as cute. I used to wear them a lot but for the past few years have forgotten about them. J buys me so much jewelry (not complaining!) so I tend to wear all the newest stuff that he buys me and the other stuff gets pushed to the bottom of my jewelry box. As we’ve gotten older his presents now lean more to fine jewelry but I love the fun pieces as much as I love the fancy stuff. I am not biased, if it’s pretty, than I like it! When I went to go accessorize that morning, I spotted my Hello Kitty rings in my jewelry box and thought it was the perfect touch to my ruffle-y yellow tank!

    The ruffles are adorable. And too funny, I used to feel the same way about yellow until recently. Now I’m a total convert.

    Love it. I am a bit scared of yellow, but AGAIN, you’re inspiring me. I did buy a big bright yellow bag yesterday though! I love the ruffles and the ring is adorable!

    And yay for layering…cleavage at work makes me feel so weird 🙂
