Mentions of Sunshine

So I have to start by saying that I do not know why I have been wearing so much yellow lately and why, oh why, do I seem to like it so?!  Seriously, I have never really been "into" yellow. So then why I have been buying it, wearing it and accessorizing with it I do not know. Perhaps it is subliminal. Maybe I am so over the dreary winter weather following us into spring and I am just trying to infuse some sunshine?  Anyone else doing this, too or am I all alone in this new crush??

Whatever the reasons or however on my own with this one that I am that is what this post is dedicated "mentions of sunshine". Enjoy! :)

TJ Maxx haul the other day...woohoo was I happy with this one. The perfect length and size Hudson Whitcomb bootcut Jeans, a great pair of Paige roll cuff skinny jeans (Seen worn in photo below) and this beautiful sunshine yellow top!

 Max Azria top / Paige jeans / Mossimo flats (old)

So this is really what started it.....the Francesco Biasia bag that I picked up in La Jolla, CA. I was so surprised with myself then that I chose it, but I did.  That seemed to get the "yellow ball" rolling!

The bag....again!  
Old Navy Perfect T / A.N.A. skinnies (old) / American Eagle wedges (old)

Joe Fresh dress (also in pink multi) / Gianni Bini Blazer / Banana Republic pumps 

Just wearing this very comfortable, very light weight and super light and bright dress can put you in a warm weather mood (plus I got lots of compliments all day long on it which is never a bad thing - LOL!).  
I bought this Gianni Bini jacket (and skirt although I have not worn them together :) after seeing in in a runway show and falling in love with it. The fit is beautiful and the fabric is so soft. It is incredibly beautifully made with fantastic details. If you are looking for a bright, fun and GREAT blazer I would recommend this one without hesitation! 

I don't know if they are sold out in stores yet, but I snagged this one in JCP. Can I tell you how happy I am that JCP is carrying Joe Fresh and that I just got another 20% discount card in the mail?!  I feel a shopping trip coming on :)

Happy Thursday everyone!
