Not So Mellow Yellow

Hello Friends!
I'm linking up today with the lovely Marion of Marionberry Style
for her Trend of the Month challenge.  This month's theme?
You got it... Yellow!  Yellow is such a fun, happy color; perfect
for the warm summer months. I'll admit, I get a little excited with
these fashion challenges.  The thematic direction really gets my creative
juices flowing.  I love scanning my wardrobe and pulling all of the 
individual pieces I feel are potential candidates to help complete
the ensemble.  It's like a team, and each of the players has a job to do.
I get so excited to see how all the pieces will pull together.  I find the little
bit of friendly competition has me putting my best foot forward, and
I enjoy viewing the works of so many other talented fashion bloggers. 
I hope you will enjoy this little bit of yellow inspired fashion!
Thanks Marion!

This particular ensemble reminds me so much of one of my favorite
fashion bloggers, the cute and super fun, Neris, of Fashion Fractions.

Yes, that is a belt styled as a bracelet!

Gold Blouse: Jennifer Lopez for Kohl's (old), here's a pretty one, Yellow pin dot blouse: Gap (old), but here's a cute one, Shorts: H&M or here's a pair, Gold Belt: Raina from KK Bloom,  Purse: Coach (old), here's great one, Shoes: gifted, but here's a fab pair, Flower Pin: From an old Betsy Johnson dress, here's a pretty one, Scarf: H&M, similar here, Sunglasses: Blinde, here's a similar, less expensive pair, Necklace: White House Black Market (old), Earrings: old, here's a gorgeous yellow pair, Bracelets: Yellow Belt worn as a bracelet: Forever 21 (old), but THIS one is SO cute, White Bracelets: White House Black Market (old), Stella & Dot Nugget Wrap and Renegade Cluster Bracelets, Rings: Cocktail Ring: Banana Republic (old), but here's my favorite current ring, Other Rings: Custom and Tiffany

For the love of happy, color-inspired style...

  1. Wow, it would be so much fun to hang out and wear clothes together! I totally got what you said about competition with other bloggers really pushing your true...I always like a challenge, too.

    1. Thank you Amy! Don't you think playing dress up is the most fun form of artistic expression?! Grateful to be a girl :) And thanks, as ever, for taking the time to comment. Have a great weekend, Whitley

  2. Love how you styled your entire outfit with all the fun accessories! And yes, the friendly competition does help get the creative juices flowing!

    1. Thank you, Jenny, so much! I do have the tendency to "go all out or go home." I get so carried away sometimes, but it is just so much fun to play dress up, no? Thank you for taking the time to comment, and I hope you will come again! Have a great weekend, Whitley

  3. LOVE it Whitley! You are so creative in how you pull pieces together. And this totally does remind me of something Neris would pull together.
    Thanks so much for linking up friend!

  4. You look fab! Love all the gold and the head scarf.

    1. Thank you again for taking the time to comment! I can't get enough of gold. I realize it can come across as a little tacky (at times), but I think just a little bit of tacky is good to keep things interesting, no? :) Have a great weekend! Whitley

  5. Great look Whitney! You pull this off flawlessly! Always look forward to seeing what you've pulled together!
