My Yellow Year

Happy Saturday!

And Happy Fall (officially this time!!) Somehow tomorrow is October already…?

Life update: one week ago today I hit the big 2 1. I had the pleasure of spending my 21st birthday at a Fall Retreat with the campus ministry I am a part of. No margaritas, but lots of great fellowship and chocolate cupcakes. And my big basic birthday balloons, of course. Welcome to my yellow year.


I know the Pantone color of the year is greenery, but for me, it’s yellow. Don’t mind me if I look like I’m dressed like a brand ambassador for Amazon. Maybe that’ll be my Halloween costume.


Though I love all shades of yellow, this shade of golden mustard is my Fall yellow. Look how it’s making Wells Fargo pop in the background. Shout out.

These photos were originally part of a photography assignment for Sam Holt, but I couldn’t help but steal them away. Anytime I happen to be downtown I like to have a picture to remember. There are so many stores and restaurants down each street that every time I am visiting downtown, I am somewhere I have never been before. During this visit, I visited the Starbucks downtown for the first time. That wasn’t really on my list of places to visit, but you know, ya girl got thirsty. Hopefully, I will earn my title as a City of Oaks local and someone somewhere will know my coffee order when I walk through the door. Maybe they’ll remember me as the girl with the yellow phone case. Not as classy as the girl in the green scarf, but I’ll take it.



Other than this shade of yellow, I am also loving the ongoing fall trend of bell sleeves. They add a lil somethin’ somethin’ to an outfit without being over the top. Give me all the bells & whistles!

    I’ve always loved yellow since it’s such a happy color! Love the bell sleeves on the top you featured as well.
