Fashion Friday – Yellow Dress for Early Spring

Happy Fashion Friday!

It’s been a lovely week in the mountains.  With the exception of yesterday the weather was warm enough to run and eat outside several times.  I know there are a million reasons to be worried about this early spring, but it feel so nice.

The most exciting thing that happened with Makena “graduated” from puppy school last night.  She even got “star puppy!”  Now to be clear ALL the puppies ended up getting the star puppy medal (kind of like a finishers medal)… but several people told me she was most improved- haha!  She still has a long way to go, but she is starting to listen a little more.  Honestly I’ll settle for not jumping on people, including me, at this point though! lol!

This weekend my college roommate Lori is coming over for the day from Charlotte with her son Dylan.   It will be nice to have some company with the Hubs working overtime.

Did you miss this on the blog?

Let’s talk fashion now, shall we? I got this dress at Old Navy a few weeks ago.  It’s such a fun piece for spring and the deep yellow is a fresh color for the year.  I’m seeing it in all sorts of stores.  Also, florals are back for spring 2017 and bigger than ever.  This is a great dress to showcase them.

I’m more than a little happy about florals being back.  My flower child heart has always been a fan!  I’ve kept wearing them, but at least I’m in style now :-).

I paired the dress with one of my favorite filigree necklaces and ankle boots.  As it gets warmer, you could do flats or sandals with this dress easily.  Gold tones look lovely with this shade of yellow.

I think this look is a great way to usher in the warmer weather that seems to have arrived crazy early this year!

I hope you like the look and get a little fashion inspiration from it.

Have a beautiful, blessed weekend.  I’d love to hear how your week has gone or what you are up to this weekend in the comments.  And as always, happy shopping!

    This dress is SO cute! And it would totally work for fall too – which it currently is here!

      Totally! It would look adorable with a brown jacket too.

    This is such a cute, country-chic look! Yellow is such a lovely springtime color 🙂

  6. That dress is so cute! I’m glad to know yellow is in–I just bought the cutest yellow floral sleeveless blouse at TJMaxx and was having second thoughts. Thanks for keeping me in style!

    I never would have guessed that dress is from Old Navy! They’re really stepping up their game!

      They are! I feel like they had awful stuff for years but got good again this past year.

    Cute dress! I got an adorable floral dress from Target a couple weeks ago that I’m in love with. I’m also a florals fan at heart.

    Beautiful! It’s snowing and cold out todayyy so I will be waiting for dresses, lol. I wish we had a close Old Navy. They really do have such cute things at affordable prices!

    Love you in yellow, as always. Too cold to wear anything of the sort here right now, but I will file it away! I have a fun yellow maxi dress that I can wait to wear this summer. YAY Makena! Top dog! Have a great weekend, Julie!

    Sounds like that will be a great visit for you.
    You seem to enjoy both types of visiting : when
    you visit or vacation elsewhere and when folks
    come to visit and stay with you here.
    Enjoy your weekend.
