Daily MelWear: LBD with Pink and Yellow

I fear I'm beginning an unhealthy obsession with using yellow as an accent color.  Will this end badly? 

It's a good thing I don't have any yellow paint or painting equipment.  Otherwise one accent wall in every single room of our condo might be painted yellow. (Kathy, if you're reading this, I'm kidding.  Sort of.)

We had a really, really nice weekend.  My husband and I had some appointments in the morning and afternoon on Saturday, then we met up with one of his out-of-state friends and his family for dinner at Downtown Disney.  Afterward we took our girl to see the Main Street Electrical Parade! 

My husband has such strong, emotional and happy memories of seeing this parade as a child with his family.  I've never seen it and obviously, neither has our daughter.  I'm not a huge parade person but I really enjoyed this one!  Probably my favorite parade ever!  Seeing the looks on their faces was absolutely priceless.  Watching them was almost as much fun as watching the parade.  I wish Disney would keep the parade year-round instead of just for this short time. 

Sunday was church, then a pool party for a friend (well, pool for everyone else...I still don't own a bathing suit in my current size since I lost the weight so I just sat out there and baked).  When we left, we had a quick dinner together and went home. 

I put the baby down for bed early, around 7PM and attempted to go to bed myself around 8PM.  However...that child did not go to sleep.  She was up talking, singing, asking me to find her water, fix her blanket, telling me "one more last thing, mommy," all the way up until 9:30PM. 

And I still got up at 4:30AM to work out.  I refuse to gain the weight back!

Wow, that was a lot more personal info than I usually put in this blog.  Sorry if that was a little boring!

Today's outfit is one that I've put together before but haven't posted on here yet.  It's so comfy, especially in my flats today instead of heels.  This outfit makes me happy.  The pink and yellow are bright and cheery, the dress is the perfect length and fits well and I'm just comfy.  Good for a Monday. 

Here's the stuff:

LBD: Plato's Closet (Old Navy brand)

Pink (Fuscia?) Ruffle Cardigan: Plato's Closet (Charlotte Russe brand)

Yellow/Orange Belt: Salvation Army

Black Flats: Target

Yellow Necklace: Wal-Mart


  1. I LOVE yellow and pink together and wear it as often as possible!

  2. So cute today! This cardi is adorable and I LOVE pink and yellow! You always find the cutest stuff at Plato's Closet. I went in for the first time today and couldn't wait to leave; ours is terrible here!
