Believe it or not, in this great Mitten state, we were freezing our toes off with day time highs of 50 degrees this past weekend. Yep, that’s in May. The middle of May. Aren’t you so jealous? Meanwhile earlier in the week, we were sweating through a humid 80 degree day. I mean seriously, you’re totally jealous. I know.
On the summer-like day, I ended up taking a few pictures just because I love the bright and warmth of yellow on my button down. I now know that it was meant to be a warning for bad weather; because I’m sitting here writing about last week’s outfit hoping it conjures up some warm weather vibes this week.
Yellow is my favorite color since long ago in childhood. It’s always represented a ‘happy’ color to me. I admit there are a few shades of yellow that make me cringe, but this bright and sunny yellow is my absolute favorite. Ironically, this shirt is one of the few yellow pieces of clothing I own. I’m working on correcting that mistake now, much to my husband’s joy of my recent shopping obsession.
The shirt is so lightweight and comfortable, it doesn’t feel like a traditional, boxy button down. And the roll-cuff option of the sleeve? Yep, this was an off the hanger purchase for me. Plus, it’s by Splendid and I’ve always had the best experience of quality and durability with this brand. A requirement for me as a mom of two lil boys.
Maybe you’ve noticed, but I’m not huge into accessories or jewelry aside from my daily staples. It’s not that I don’t want to be, but I’ve just never mastered the art of being able to make it all look right. So, while shopping for comfort and simplicity, I like looking for little details that make a statement in place of added accessories. And come on seriously, who doesn’t love stripes? As a boy mom, I can attest to the fact that stripes are the end-all, be-all option, especially for little boy clothing options. (That’s a post for another day).
The shorts are also super comfortable and a great length. I have long-ish legs so I usually have a hard time finding shorts that are the right length. Most are way too short for my comfort and others feel way too long. I love that this pair has a couple of inches of legroom (no pun intended) for me to shorten or lengthen as needed. Loft has some great shorts options in this length.
I hope you all are enjoying better, warmer weather than we are up here. Happy Monday and have a great week!
What’s your favorite color? Do you wear that color often? And for good measure, how’s the weather where you are?
