>the dog days of summer


A picture perfect lunch break with the two loves of my life :)
{Wearing: Alfani yellow top (on sale at Macy’s) $20, Simply Vera Vera Wang dark skinnies $19, Style & Co. wedges (on sale at Macy’s) $40, thrifted scarf as headband $3, Macy’s bangles $7, Foster Grant sunnies $7.50}

I got an email from Andie at What Andie Wears asking me about picking flattering yellows. I’m a “spring” — that is, my skin is pretty fair with gold undertones — so if I wear the wrong shade I tend to look jaundiced. Picking the right one can be kind of tricky, but yellow is one of my favorite colors and the thought of a sunny-free wardrobe is just too much to bear. I stick to bright gold and mustard shades, and avoid all the pretty pastels in between. 
If you’re wondering, our furry child is a Goldendoodle — a hybrid of the Standard Poodle and Golden Retriever. His name is Doak (pronounced “doke”). 
The hubs happened to be sporting yellow himself today. Cute as we may be as twins, we usually don’t make a habit of coordinating our outfits ;)

  1. >what a cute puppy. I am thinking it may be time for me to bring my dog into a daily wear post. :) Thanks for the info- I really appreciate it. And I love that top. Coincidentally, i was surfing the Macy's website while I was reading blogs and that top you're wearing just jumped out at me! I'll have to check it out and see if it's my shade of yellow as well. ;)

What do you think?
