When I saw what actually won the poll for July my heart sank a little. I don’t like yellow. I love green and I think orange is my new favorite color (I’m still coming to terms with this since red has been my favorite color all of my life) but I really don’t like yellow. I own 2 things that are yellow – both are shoes. And one I can’t wear as it turns out it was poorly designed (for my feet anyway) and is always threatening to jump ship and make me leave it behind while I walk on! I really should just get them to move along to someone else.
That leaves this pair of shoes. And I don’t really like these. They seem to be fine so long as my feet aren’t sweaty but the minute my feet get sweaty I slid right out of them (I actually wear wide width and these are regular width). Oh well.
I nearly wore this skirt 2 months back when florals were the pick. I really like how I styled it here though. You really do notice the yellow, and since it was the pick this month I figured why not actually make it the sole focus (see what I did there – sole?! I crack me up).
Oh and as an aside – since this does not warrant it’s own post – there was a call for photos of real engagement rings on Glamour magazine’s Save the Date (their online wedding category) so I submitted mine. It got featured yesterday with a several other gorgeous engagement rings!
