Little Miss Sunshine and

I'm alive! Finally have a free moment to update...I've been so caught up going to weddings and bachelorette parties lately. It's insane how many of my friends are engaged or getting married though. They are fun but can be tiring. Is it wedding season for some of you too?

Summer dresses are still my go-to choice on warm days and lucky for me, there have been quite a few recently. I love this yellow color and pairing it with classic tan shades. The vibrant color reminds me of the sun! I think they complement each other well and it doesn't feel too dressed up. The jersey material is also really comfortable and doesn't wrinkle easily which is a plus.
F21 jersey dress (similar) -- Nordstrom BP cardigan (buy) -- Steve Madden t-strap heels (similar) -- Sportsgirl satchel from Australia (similar and good deal!)

Accessories: thrifted 'knot' bangle (similar) -- faux pearl bracelet (similar) -- H&M link bracelet (similar in pink and yellow) -- no name watch (similar) -- tan layered necklace from HK (similar)

On another note, I was invited to partake in the pre-launch of a cool new site called It's basically a shopping site that will be live later this year that involves users creating their own online mall by selecting their favorite brands/stores! Once this personal mall is built, you will be about to invite friends to shop with you, talk about products in various social media outlets, and promote your preferred stores.  

So far, Mallzee already has 200 companies onboard (Urban Outfitters, New Look, French Connection, and more). You can also earn great discounts and users get paid whenever they or any of their friends purchase via their customized mall. Pretty awesome right? Register for a launch invite at if it interests you!

What do you think about shades of yellow? Love it or hate it?


  1. First off, yay for the update!
    Second, LOVE yellow. I embrace it in different shades all year long. And I really like how you paired it down with camel and a cream.

    Have a great weekend Karen!
