I’ve got YELLOW FEVER!  It’s not in that hemorrhaging, yellowing skin, fever kind of way but more like the I am LOVING yellow for Spring kind of way!  {That was my cheesy attempt at medical humor! LOL!}

I wore this to work a couple of weeks ago with a more conservative pair of shoes – black wedges to be exact.  This yellow cotton blazer with the fringed trim is so Chanel-esque!  It was a gift from my sweet MIL.  And what else would finish the outfit than a strand of pearls?!  That is just a forever 21 shirt underneath, but a blazer can dress up any simple white tee.
You are only given a little spark of madness.  You mustn’t lose it. – Robin Williams

    I always thought yellow paired with black will make one look like a bee. But you prove me wrong!

    I’ve been cracking my brains over how to pair my pale yellow jeans (besides white top). Maybe I could try black. Hopefully I can get more inspirations from you.
