True story: I was almost named Ray of Sunshine. Like, that was going to be my actual birth name.
Yup, my parents (who are NOT hippies but were definitely off their rockers when this was discussed) seriously considered naming me Raya Sunshine Silverman. CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE THE AWESOMENESS THAT WOULD HAVE OCCURRED IF MY NAME WAS RAYA SUNSHINE SILVERMAN? I am mad that they were talked out of it!
Anywho, even though that is not really my name, I still like to consider myself a ray of sunshine. I have a particular yellow cardigan that I love wearing when it’s dark and gloomy outside, and yesterday fit the bill – I felt bright and sunshiney all day long! So of course, I started thinking about how much I love the color yellow…
If I had jillions of dollars I would buy this Lanvin blouse and wear it every single day. I love everything about it – the oversized shape, the droopy flower, the modest v-neck… everything but the PRICE!
If there’s anything I love more than a ballet flat, it’s a patent leather ballet flat - these Bloch flats are so cute! And I can personally attest to the fact that the Tory Burch Eddie flats are ridiculously comfortable – I own two pairs!
We all know that I’m obsessed with toggle coats. I NEED ONE. Except I’m cut off from buying any more coats… I’ve been basically buying one a week and it may be freezing outside right now, but I live in Los Angeles! Anywho, this one is so cute and also comes in tons of colors… what a great way to add some color to your outfit when it’s cold outside!
Speaking of it being cold outside… I can’t think of anything cuter than a pair of electric yellow rainboots. I personally own a pair of pink ones, but the yellow achieves the same affect :) happy and bright and perfect for splashing in puddles!
I never met a stripe I didn’t like, and I love love love the idea of some sunny stripes! These tops look casual, comfortable, sophisticated, and elegant all at once… you could wear them over a pair of skinny jeans or tucked into a black pencil skirt and look fabulous!
I own these earrings in turquoise and hot pink, and whenever I’m wearing an all-black ensemble (rare, but it does happen), I like to put on a pair to add a pop of color. Yellow would look so pretty, and I bet you wouldn’t ever take them off when summer rolled around!
So there you have it. A ton of adorable yellow clothes, and an embarrassing confession to boot. Plus in keeping with the spirit of yellow, Stacy Brach Geldzy sent me this photo that I now need to post:
Two bananas snuggling. Bet you didn’t think this post was going to end this way :)
