Fashion Friday – Yellow Sweater for Spring

Hello everyone!

Watch your back it’s April Fool’s day!

My best and only real April Fool’s trick was in one of my early year’s on TV.  I was filling in on the evening news with a co-anchor who hated snow and cold as much I do.  I gave my forecast like normal, but at the end I made a fake 7-day forecast with nothing but snow and cold.  At the end of my three minutes, I sat back down at the desk and said we were getting a late blast of winter!  My co-anchor starting chatting back dissapointed in the cold weather so late in the year.  After playing along for a few minutes I put up the right forecast which was sunny and warm each day.  April Fools!

I promise no tricks today!  I did that one, but it’s not really my thing.

As we start to transition to more reliably mild weather, I’m pulling out some of my spring favorites and updating them for 2016.  Yellow is once again a hot color for spring and I’m fully embracing it.

Yellow Sweater for Spring-59-3

For this outfit I picked out a thin cotton sweater in yellow.  I added a long tan and white scarf that I tied like an infinity scarf.  It instantly updated the sweater and is nice to wear while we still have cool mornings.

The skirt is a favorite of mine from Banana Republic outlet.  It’s gathered and almost has a poofy look to it.  It doesn’t go with a lot, but I still love to wear it with the few things it suits.  I think this outfit is one of them.

For shoes I went with my matching tan keds to keep the look casual.  I trekked all over Italy in these things.

    Very pretty yellow sweater and it looks great paired with the skirt! I don’t have a lot of yellow in my closet. I need to look at what I do have for Spring. Have a restful weekend!

    Unfortunately, your forecast would be no joke for the weather we’re actually having! Apparently mother nature decided that winter is April. Or Springter. Whatever.

    I did have on a yellow cardi (briefly) just yesterday. Sometimes you just need to bring your own sunshine!

      That stinks! It’s been cool and windy here, but nothing like your weather. That is exactly how I feel about yellow.

    haha that’s a great April Fool’s joke! I wish the predicted forecast for this weekend was a joke, but alas…
    Anywhoooo you look great in yellow!

    Super cute! I think we need to go shopping together so you can dress me. I still can’t get over your rosey outfit and accessories from our meet-up on Monday!

      I’ve been told before I should be a personal shopper πŸ™‚ I was taught by my Mom and Grandmom πŸ™‚ Hope you had a good weekend.

    Love you in that yellow! I never wore yellow growing up (I actually really didn’t like the color!). I also had a lot of yellow in my skin tone. But now I love yellow–I have a fantastic yellow maxi that I adore. Have a great weekend!

    That sweater/outfit is ADORABLE on you! I don’t think I can pull off yellow with my skin tone and always envy people that can!

    • JulieWunder April 3, 2016 at 6:40 pm - Reply

      It’s one of my favorite colors to wear. Thank you.

  14. You always look so cute! I’m so ready to pull out the spring clothes, but winter just won’t let go. I”m back in my cords today…

    I really wanted to wear more yellow this year, as it’s not a colour I have ever really worn before, but I can’t find anything yellow anywhere over here πŸ™

      It feels like you are wearing sunshine when you wear yellow :-)) I hope you had a good weekend.
