Bright summer dresses are wonderful to wear. Yellow, in particular, is the vivid color of sunshine. What better way to usher in Spring!
Though it is barely spring, I am wearing an asymmetrical summer dress that is borrowed from a friend. For many reasons I would not buy nor keep this dress.
However, it was fun to wear , even being SO out of my comfort zone. Sharing dresses has been a fun recent activity for me and a way to try new things without consuming.
Yes, I used to play the piano. I am wearing no make up on my face, but the bright exposure takes years off my age. I am wearing glitter eyeshadow and fake eyelashes, which I appear to be addicted to!
Fendi makes this top-stitched belt and it belongs to my friend! This dress is way to prone to “wardrobe malfunction” for me to wear outside. Younger women know about special tapes and such, but those products are not for me!
As you can imagine this dress is going to go to another friend who can wear this well and with confidence. The traveling yellow dress, in the tradition of the traveling yellow pants!
It is drizzling outside and temps are still cool, so my bright summer dresses are sitting quietly in my closet.
Vivid colors do affect my mood! I choose them often , even thought my tendency is towards prints, pattern mixing and neutrals. Thinking back, I believe the last time you saw me in a solid color dress was when I was wearing white satin on the rooftop deck!
So many commenters thought that I was wearing a tiara or crown, but it is just two headbands! The faceted beads caught the light!
My late father was able to play by ear. While I can hear harmony in my head, I do not have this talent.
Crystal vintage earrings also sparkled in a lively way. You have seen them often lately.
These beauties have age and patina.
They were bought locally and second-hand. Hint: please shop mindfully!
Dreaming of bright summer dresses helps coping with a delayed spring!
Vivid in yellow,
Yellow is sometimes considered a difficult color to wear, but remember there are many shades of this effervescent hue!
Choose a scarf or cardigan in a color that suits you best, if you feel that yellow is not suitable for you. This separates the yellow shade from your face. However, I do think there is most likely a sunny shade for everyone.
Golden yellow and marigold is not just for bright summer dresses.
Accessories pop in this brilliant color!
Review this older post for sunny inspiration!
As well, do not forget to add this color to decor.
From pinterest here is some inspiration.
In my own home, I added a vintage yellow mirror from One Kings Lane.
So dear readers are you ready to wear yellow?
Has Spring come to you yet? I hope there are blossoms in your garden!
