Dress: J.Crew Factory (extra 30% off online with the code SALE30) | Shoes: Urban Outfitters | Necklace: ETSY | Sunglasses: Charming Charlie | Clutch: DIY
It’s no secret that I just love yellow.When I walk into a store, yellow is my go-to color that I gravitate toward. I’ll have to do a post that shows all of the yellow things I’ve bought in the past two months. So. much. yellow. These yellow banana shorts are my favorite summer purchase so far.
A while ago I saw this Lizzie Fortunato oversized banana clutch online and was inspired to make a similar clutch for myself as a summer project. I have extra materials left over from the DIY clutch above where I want to hand paint bananas onto some canvas fabric and then sew the painted fabric to some of my leftover yellow pleather material to make a dual side fold-over clutch. I don’t even like the taste/texture of how bananas, but I have no problem with carrying around a clutch with fruit on it! Especially if it’s yellow.
The reason I bought this yellow J.Crew dress was to match my little niece. We had bought her a yellow dress from Target for Easter and I told her I would find a similar one so she could match her auntie at church. A few weeks ago I received an email from J.Crew Factory saying the whole store was 50% off. I knew they don’t do this often, and because I work every Friday/Saturday, I made it a point to go on Sunday after church. Once I walked in and saw the yellow dress I knew I had to try it on. An hour later, I was the proud owner of the perfect yellow dress with a classic silhouette that fit like a glove.
Then last Sunday-on mothers day, my little niece and I decided it was time to both wear our yellow dresses to church. I decided to pair my dress with blue accessories, while she chose to go a more creative route and ended up eating a blue ring pop for dessert that matched perfectly with my blue accessories. Gotta love her little blue lips!
