Welcome to what is probably my favorite outfit I’ve ever posted! I’m definitely having a yellow moment lately, and I’m loving it. I’ve been trying to incorporate more brightly colored pieces into my wardrobe, and as crazy as it sounds, it’s been brightening my mood, too!

Did you catch this post last week about thinking that I couldn’t wear caftans? Well, I thought the same thing about mumu’s. Granted, H & M doesn’t call this a mumu, but it is. I ordered my regular size (4) in this one, and could have went with a 2. I haven’t worn a two in years, so if you decide to purchase this dress, keep that in mind and maybe size down one. However, the four fits me fine, so it’s your discretion on how you prefer your clothing to fit. I’m most comfortable in looser fits, so I didn’t exchange for the smaller size.

This ensemble is also the perfect example of how shoes can completely change an outfit. I purchased these last year and had no idea how I’d wear them, but I loved them and had to have them. Y’all, I’ve had so much fun with these! You can see a more casual take on them here and here. My favorite way to wear them is with an unexpected color, like above. This style is still available in the neutral shades (blush and pewter), but the peacock blue is sold out. I’ll link some similar styles in this color in the widget below. Also, notice the block heel, which actually makes them comfortable!

This leopard calf hair clutch is another purchase from a few years ago that is no longer in stock. I bought it because it so closely resembled the Clare V., which I couldn’t afford at the time. I’m linking the Clare V. in the widget below because I honestly can’t find a nice, similar one online, BUT, come Fall, a lot of boutiques stock nearly identical ones! So make sure to look around locally and online after summer. In the meantime, if I stumble upon one, I’ll edit this post and let you know. Just email me or comment below if you’d like me to notify you. It’s became a staple in my closet!

Thanks for reading! Hope y’all have a great week!
