Are there colors that you just don't seem to like how they look on you? Well for me, that color is yellow. For some reason, I feel that most shades of yellow make me look either pale or sick (or both!). But I have come to discover that in those cases there are probably at least one or two shades of that color that could actually look quite nice on you. So I decided to give yellow a chance and bought a couple of yellow pieces. And who would have known that one of my favorite pieces (a mustard top I used a couple of days ago) turned out to be yellow? Goes to show, some things deserve a second chance ;)

  4. You were pretty creative to pair that yellow with that unexpected blue. I am currently stocking up on blouses in that style but have no idea what they are called. :P

    I like your remix section-where you show how you've worn it before. It's so relatable!

  11. I like your theory that there is a version of every color for every complexion. My hubby likes me to wear red, but I'm not a fan of a bright, primary red ... but burgundy seems to do the trick for me. I'd love to find a yellow I could wear! Yours looks great.

  13. This is one of my favorite color combos. I eschewed yellow as well for awhile but now I LOVE it! Wear all shades of it, even though there are a few I should probably steer clear of, haha.
