Mellow Yellow

My favorite color is yellow. But sometimes, I’m scared to wear it because I worry I’m too pale to pull it off. Oh well, right? This cute dress is a very similar shade to the bridesmaid dress I wore recently for my cousin Monica’s wedding. I was immediately drawn to the dress because of the ruffled layers on the bottom. I’m a sucker for anything with ruffles, since it adds curves to my smaller frame. I love the lace accents, too. It just makes me feel… pretty. Or like I’m ready to go frolicking through the fields to find Easter eggs or something. Sorry for that imagery.

When I wear dresses, I like to keep everything else simple. I paired this dress with cognac wedges, a nude clutch, a pale pink lip and pink BaubleBar earrings.

  1. You look so cute! I’m a big yellow person too, but I think especially the pale yellows are totally do-able!

  2. Yellow looks beautiful on you! It really shows off your hair color. I’ll admit I tend to stay away from the color, I haven’t found a shade that works yet! Those pink earrings compliment it perfectly 🙂

  3. You look gorgeous in yellow, no wonder it’s your favorite color! I love the little ruffle detail, it adds even more femininity to an already pretty dress!

  4. Rachel, this yellow laced ruffled dress looks super darling on you. Yellow is my favourite colour too and it always depends on the hues you are wearing, like pastels dont make you look pale. This shade is perfect for your dear 🙂

    As always I love your pretty wavy hair 🙂

  5. Not only can you pull this color off, but I would venture to say that I’ve not seen many women that look as good in this shade of yellow as you do. No joke. This is a great color for you, and I see that many other ladies agree! 🙂

  6. You look so pretty! I love yellow but it is not a flattering color on me. The simple accessories are a perfect choice. Have a wonderful day!
