When I found out that Marionberry Style’s Trend Of The Month Challenge this month was the color yellow, I immediately created a saved draft post because I knew I had to join in on the fun.  Bright sunny yellows are so perfect for Summer and seriously just put me in the happiest mood when I’m wearing it.  Here are a few pieces that have been waiting to make their way into my closet.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

And here’s my take on YELLOW, with a few fun pieces that have recently made it into my closet and are quickly becoming my faves.

Top c/o Conversation Pieces | Shorts c/o Conversation Pieces | Shoes c/o B.A.I.T. Footwear | Necklace: Rebecca | Bracelet c/o Elladolce

The shirt isn’t just a plain pocket shirt but it’s got buttons down the back to add a nice little flair.  I don’t wear a lot of shorts, but these shorts are a hybrid skirt, are on the longer side and contain a bow, so they are kind of the perfect shorts for me.  The shoes, oh my, how I love the color, design, heel height on this shoe.  They are so perfect for work (and play)!  I’ve been waiting to show off my hot air balloon necklace for ever – it’s got a touch of romanticism and a touch of whimsy all in one.  And finally, I love my new bracelet trio with fun colors and stones.  So there you have it, my outfit dissected.  Did you notice the new location for these outfit pictures?  This is the garden in front of our house.  The yellow flowers are kind of fitting for those post, yea?  :)

What yellow items do you own?  Or want to buy?

    When I was little, I wasn’t allowed to wear yellow because my mom hated the color so much. So now, I rebel and wear yellow as much as I can! My favorite is a yellow striped shirt with ruffled detail on the front from Old Navy.

    The front garden looks so lovely! Love how you matched with the flowers. :)

    I’m such a huge fan of mustard yellow, but not daffodil yellow. Funny how such a slight change in tint makes such a big difference!

    I own a yellow off-the-shoulder top but am constantly deciding whether or not the color works for me. :o
    Love the necklace you chose…would wear it with navy.

    Hey Sandy! I’m quickly becoming a fan of yellow as well! I hadn’t really had much yellow in my closet until this spring….and now I can’t get enough of my yellow (almost neon) skinnies! Thanks for sharing….I love those wooden heels!

    Yellow looks amazing on you – I love it paired with the navy! I think yellow is a great addition to a wardrobe but since I don’t think it looks the best against my skin I don’t own much: a skirt with yellow flowers, a belt, and shoes

    I don’t own a single piece of yellow clothing. I think I was told a long time ago that because of my skin tone (I’m Asian and almost always tan), I should steer clear of yellows, but I now think that’s ridiculous. Seeing how fab you look in yellow makes me want to go out and buy a few new yellow tops after work today! :)

    I have a yellow dress that I bought years ago but it’s more of a pale yellow, like post-it note yellow. I also have yellow wedges that I can’t wait to start wearing.

    I am hoping to buy a yellow top.

    oh, you look so cute, sandy!
    that’s totally an outfit i’d wear too.

    it’s funny because i used to HATE wearing yellow–
    and i love it and have a few yellow tops that i can’t
    get enough of. so now i try not to color-hate because
    i know it’s going to grow on me. ;)
