Mellow Yellow

Hey dolls,

How are my peeps doing!?!?  Today has been just an O.K. day. It’s raining, and dreary outside and everything just seems to be in slow motion.   It’s been one of those days where everything is just “blah”.  I’m ready to crawl in my bed and sleep the rest of the day away.  Ever have one of those days?

Anywho, here is an outfit that I wore to an event at my church a little while ago.

I took these pictures with my phone so please excuse the quality and the huge bar at the bottom of each pic. lol!  Let’s focus on the outfit people…focus LOL!!  My top is actually more of a chartreuse color than yellow but this is how it showed up on the camera

.  On another note, I love throwing my hair up in the natural updo!  It’s so so easy and it looks so elegant!  I think it dresses up an outfit!  Hair can definitely be an accessory.

    Beautiful top. It certainly brightens a rainy day. It's raining in Seattle too – go figure. Ah. Retire by 35 – what a wonderful idea. But that means I'd have to retire this year :O( Beauty Fashion Skin Care Blog -Girlie Blog Seattle | Casual Chic Style
