Trend of the Month Challenge – Yellow

Today we’re linking up with Marion Berry’s Trend of the Month Challenge. This month’s challenge is to wear yellow. I was thrilled when I hear this since I had just purchased yellow shoes suggested by Marion.  I woke up bright and early to get to spin class, excited to start my day and post my yellow outfit.  What happened next lead me to almost not post today.  You see, there are a couple of unknown facts about me.  1. I had a CRAZY, almost deadly allergic reaction while I was getting ready to go to my dear friend’s wedding, I was IN the wedding.  Needless to say, I didn’t participate in the ceremony but begged the doctor to let me go to the reception…I still feel bad about that 2. Ever since then, the sight of a rash completely freaks me out.  I came out of the gym and noticed I had developed what seemed like a rash on my chest and neck.  I freaked, I was literally about to drive myself directly to the ER.  I frantically called Frank, he didn’t answer.  In my head, I was going to die and never say good bye to anyone (I know, drama!)  I calmed myself down and consulted my friend Google.  It turns out it was some kind of a skin rash sometimes caused by sweating…or in my case, I’m convinced it was the detergent my gym used on the towels…yuck.  (Note to self, bring your own workout towel from now on)  Oh yes, 3. I get grossed out very easily.

So after a little scrubbing in the shower, my neck returned to it’s normal smoothness and I excitedly got dressed.  I couldn’t decide between a yellow skirt or the yellow shoes, so I wore both.  What do you think?  Do you love yellow as much as I do?

I’m also linking up with Rolled up Pretty and The Pleated Poppy.

My sister introduced me to Pinterest a few months ago and I’m totally addicted.  If you haven’t checked it out…you must!!!  The inspiration is just amazing, like this outfit someone pined from Gilt.com.  Sorry you can’t see my shoes, but they are tan heeled loafers from my fave, Banana Republic.

I absolutely love this dress, especially the cutouts on the sleeve. I ended up throwing this blazer over it, but I was running late this morning so I didn’t get a chance to take another picture. BTW, isn’t the bow on my belt super adorable?

There’s nothing like the clean lines of a white button down shirt. Wear it with jeans, pants, or a pencil skirt like I did today. Raise your head up and walk proudly, you look fabulous!
