They Call Her Mellow Yellow

Dear Fashion Diary,

I finally own my first Modcloth dress! Most of their stuff is so overpriced for me
so I thought this day would never come. 
But that's why sales were invented! yaaayyyy!!

This is the first time I've worn this necklace since my wedding day!

Tha's right, I pop my collah. (Did I just say Collah?)

Husbandman and I are going to Lake Powell this week! Finally, an entire week off from work.
I am so excited.
His family always goes to Lake Powell every summer-it's tradition.
And now I get to go with them!
So I'll be back in a week, probably with a sunburn. :)

I'm really loving this ponytail look lately. And it's so easy! Just leave a piece of hair out when you put your hair up and wrap it around the hair tie and pin it underneath.

I bartered this bracelet down to $5 in Mexico on our honeymoon! I'm quite the shrude businesswoman ;)

the earrings are also vintage and from my wedding day :)

  • Dress: Modcloth sale
  • shirt underneath: Downeast
  • necklace/earrings: vintage
  • flats: Pacsun

I hope you are all enjoying your summer! Make the most of it!
And I truly want to thank all of my followers for being so awesome!!!
You all are so great with all your Sweet comments.
It brightens my day to read what you all say-every single comment is appreciated.
So thank you! 

pssst...I'm linking up to Real Momma Real Style party Here!

Pin It!

Ashley Sloan said...

Oh how cute! I love that dress! I have never bought anything there either! How tall are you? I'm pretty tall well -not too tall- but most often all dresses are TOO short!!!

Shalyn said...

Yellow is my FAVORITTTTTEEEEE! I love that dress on you. And your accessories are to die for. Also to die for- a trip to lake Powell. We have never been!

Amy said...

That dress looks awesome on you! I love the cheerful, yellow color. And gorgeous necklace!!

Cee said...

I love that we both posted our first ModCloth dresses today :) You look absolutely gorgeous in yours; that shade of yellow wouldn't suit just anyone but it seems to bring out a natural glow in you. And the jewelry you've paired it with is beyond stunning. I love that even though it's your special wedding jewelry, you brought it out for every day. I do the same with my wedding pieces, although not nearly as often as I mean to :)

Julia Yvette said...

So cute! I'm loving all the yellow this season. ModCloth has so many of those classic button down dresses right now (I featured them on my blog too). I'm definitely planning on getting one for student teaching once my loans come in (after buying books of course)


Hope you can stop by:

That's so pretty! I hope to have a modcloth dress one day!

And 'du jour' means 'of the day,' or 'made for the day.' You see it a lot of times on menus.

I love your necklace, it looks so perfect for a wedding day!

Ana Paula said...

I think that yes, ModCloth can get spendy for us frugirls (?) out there. But you know? With all that we save being frugal we can spoil ourselves a little bit every now and then with something cute! There's nothing wrong with that. Plus you look adorable! :)

Gorgeous dress so pleased your you at getting your first modcloth dress. I am the biggest modcloth fan. Overpriced, yes but when it comes to modcloth I can't resist. My bank account has suffered greatly as a result.

9in fact exact cut but with a diff print)one in sales but when i tried it on..found that this particular cut is very unflattering one me.. especially the makes my neck stunted like turtle's!! :P
