Yellow Gingham






I used to avoid yellow, because I'm fair-skinned and I thought it washed me out. But you know what... after having my kids, I kind of went through this mindset shift, and I decided that I'm not going to let things like that determine what I wear. I've had insecurities about different parts of my body at times in my life, but it did me no good except to limit me from what I felt the freedom to wear and do. And, quite frankly, that's stupid. I have my husband, in large-part, to thank for this realization. He's always preached to me that being comfortable and confident in your body is the most sexy thing. After years of unlearning my insecure ways, I have to agree. Life is too short to be overly concerned with the parameters of what you think you can and can't wear. Like it? Wear it. I hope I just simplified your next shopping trip!

Shop Yellow Gingham:



What are your preconceived notions about things you can and can't wear? I want to encourage you to wear things you love but maybe think you can't pull off. Whether it be that you think you're too old, or not skinny enough, or too fair, or the wrong body shape, or too thin, too short, or too tall. We all have our own perceived flaws about ourselves that no one else actually notices. So, in case you don't have someone in your life to tell you that confidence is attractive, I'm here to do that for you! Have the confidence to wear something if you love it. Have the guts to wear that color you've deemed off-limits for yourself, or the skirt you love but think is a bit too short for your age. You only get to do this life once, and I say have a good time with your clothes and your life.
I hope you're having a wonderful week, and had a great July 4th! Thanks for reading!

  4. Yellow is my favorite color, but what I've come to realize is there are many shades of it, just like every other color. So maybe one shade of it isn't great with your complexion---but there are some that are great!!
    Like this one---it almost seems more golden and looks great on you, Jessica!!

  5. Such a pretty colour on you! The top is gorgeous and I love the golden tones to it rather than a bright yellow.

  15. That's a cute top, and I like it with your denim skirt :) I've been really embracing yellow the past few years - I sued to stay away from it too but it's such a fun colour to wear! I think it's important to wear things that make you smile :)

    Hope that you're having a wonderful weekend :)
