Daily Threads: Mellow Yellow




cardigan: j.crew 
dress: c/o modcloth
shoes: c/o jc penney {via giveaway}
earrings: c/o jess lc {via contest}

So I'm not sure if there exists some type of faux-pas when it comes to wearing different shades of the same color - but I don't care. I recently received this light and lovely, yellow, seersucker dress and I had it paired, in my mind, with my bright yellow cardigan. I had tunnel-vision and couldn't imagine it with anything else. I personally love the look - I feel bright and spring-y-ish (what?). 

Husband was running Maeby while I took these photos. After playing she insisted on taking a break from playing for a quick photo-op. I scooped her up and snapped the picture. I'm sure you all can tell how badly she really wanted to be in the picture...

Also, check me out on Modly Chic today wearing another lovely Spring dress!

That dress is BEYOND adorable! Love seersucker so much. And shade-mixing is never bad when it looks as cute as it does on you!

Natasha said...

Monochromatic is totally not a faux pas! You pull off yellow so well...I have yet to try anything light yellow, but it looks great on you!

Wearing different shades of the same colour looks WONDERFUL! If it was a faux paux it isn't now. This dress is so gorgeous, I really love it.

Love love love the dress! I can't pull off yellow, but it is such a perfect shade this time of year! Also, I adore your blogger bun.

If there is a rule, I think this is exhibit A for overturning it. This is such a pretty summer outfit!

Bethy said...

Seersucker! I like it, even if you are sporting different hues of the same color. Looks so light and breezy. Send some of that warm, warm weather my way!

Malin said...

I love your hairstyle! Show me how to do it!! - I can never get it that big! (ANd I have tons of hair!)

Kuleigh said...

The dress has a great fit and I love that it's seersucker... so perfect for summer! I think the yellow on yellow looks fine since they're different shades!

Alison said...

I really like the yellows together. I think that the different textures of the dress and the sweater break up the outfit enough so that it's not too matchy-matchy, even though they are the same color. So cute! What a perfect early summer outfit!

Melanie said...

I'm totally loving the monochromatic thing of late. You look so cute. Just like your pup! I think Colby makes the same face in all photos with me, lol. I'm obsessed with your bun. Sock?
