If you steal my sunshine

...I will wear as much bright yellow as I possibly can and persuade it to come back.
After several days of nothing but grey skies and rain, I decided to put on my yellow dress, and the sun decided to make an appearance.
Thank goodness that worked!

I really like how you paired those tights with that dress. I never would have thought of that. You look pretty in these photos by the way. :)

Lorena said...

Me encanta !

Kellie said...

Love the way you match your tights to your dress, such a cool and unexpected look! I wore bright yellow today too :)

Taylor said...

Hooray for yellow! (I'm wearing it tomorrow.) Your blog title today: I had not heard that song in YEARS and then it came on the radio last week. And then Parks & Rec last week had Leslie listening to it on her laptop. And then it was on VH1's One Hit Wonders of the 90's. And now your blog! Funny.

Julia said...

I love the teal nails with the yellow! And yes, I just broke all ALLLL my yellow dresses and rehung them in my closet. I have more than I thought I did!

Terri said...

Oh, I love the sunshine in your hair and the magical idea that we can coax the sun out with colorful clothing!

Yeri said...

That's so funny you wore something bright and cheerful to bring out the sun! It worked! Unfortunately for me I just went with the dreary weather and dressed in head-to-toe black. :O)

hurricanekerrie said...

So it works! Wearing bright clothing coaxes the sun out! Yay! Love this yellow dress! I'm glad to see how you're wearing it for chillier weather. I'm sure it's a great dress for Summer as well!

I like that you wore aqua polish with all the yellow.

Anne said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I so wish I could wear yellow! What a great outfit to bring the sun out in. And I really like all of the yellow paired with the more subdued floral cardigan.

Sherry Jarwin said...

LOVIN' THE YELLOW! And those booties are a perfect compliment. Cute nails, too!! OK - you are just adorable and cute all the way around! Cheers!

Ashley said...

Gorgeous dress!!!! OMG. I've been so obsessed with yellow this spring. My yellow pants will not die. Ever. Or even go away for that matter. I have a yellow dress, but it doesn't fit too well. I'm thinking this one would suit me juuuuust fine.

jamie-lee said...

you're such a cutie! Love the dress, paired with the matching tights and the unexpected cardigan. chic as usual! xx

Alex Elizabeth said...

ugh, I know, I just want some sun. But at least it's not raining today? I love the way yellow and purple looks together :) I really need to get more yellow for spring!

Vanessa said...

The sunlight in these pictures is phenomenal! Love the backlit shots. You look all angelic and aglow!
(Hope you had plenty more sunshine this weekend. We had a few rays today and tons of sun on Saturday!)
Ps. Love the yellow on yellow tights and dress!

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

Hahaha. I love your opening sentence, as that's basically the philosophy for my life!!! If it's a grey day, why not BE the colour?

You look incredible - I love the florals. This is DEFINITELY a "SUMMER COME HERE" look... and I love it!
