The Weekend.

This is what I woke up to this morning. 
I'm sooooo over the winter weather. 
Fog. Rain. Cold. Wet.

Photo taken from my deck. Stupid, creepy, eerie, drippy Fog.

So I made one of these to cheer myself up.
Yeah, mine didn't look this good so I grabbed this photo off of calamitykim

And I put on my Camper boxer boots.
This photo makes my feet look HUGE!!!

Then I grabbed the dog. 
Meet Josie. She was in no mood for a photo, so this is vintage (last summer). She'd like you to know she now sports an animal print collar with Swarovski crystals. Much cooler.

Next I grabbed the man. 
And we braved the Stephen King weather for a walk.

He was in no mood for a photo either. So this was taken at work a few months ago. 

The three of us decided nothing fixes the BWB (Bad Weather Blues) like than a houseful of food & laughter.
So we invited some of our peeps over and started setting up.
Think I like red much? I'm one lame photographer. Glare, shadows....oh well, you get the gist.
After the grey claustrophobic foggy morning, I thought wearing sunny yellow would brighten the mood of the day.
And like a miracle—after I got dressed—the sun appeared!

I decided I need to buy another yellow dress this week.
Just in case...
Maggie London Keyhole Chiffon Dress at Nordstrom, $135US

Nicole Miller Cutout Shift Dress at Neiman Marcus, $355US

Happy Talk Sunny Yellow Dress from Shabby Apple, $88US

What do you think about yellow? 
Does yellow have a place in your wardrobe? Or in your weekend?

  1. I want to come to your house and hang with your peeps! I own no yellow. Does that preclude my attendance?
