I can't believe we are coming up on month five of Love, Yellow already. It seems like just yesterday my best friend/shop owner of my favorite store and I were scheming up possible ways to team together to bring you readers something we could all have fun with. After a few text messages, a couple of glasses of wine, and several "oh my gosh yes...lets lets lets" it has all happened.

The thing that I love about Love, Yellow is that it proves you can dress yourselves in cute, boutique, stylish clothing while not emptying your entire savings account. It has been so fun to create a "look" that we can all feel confident in month after month. I hope you realize how much thought (and fun) goes into selecting the items. Fashion is serious (serious) business and our goal is to not let you down.
For August the theme was polka dots and while I wanted something fun, I also wanted something versatile. Insert this little diddy.
We went with this sleeveless top that is great for both summer and fall. The pop of teal makes the shirt come alive and the way it flows perfectly hides any extra cheeseburgers eaten (score). We paired it with this black + gold bracelet that can be worn with just about anything in your closet (double score).
The thing that I love about this top is that all you have to do is pair a cute jacket or blazer with it to transcend it into "work appropriate" or be able to wear it any season. I almost think I love it more with a blazer over the top. Almost.
So there we have it. Stripes stripes and more stripes...here we come.
Remember to get your order in THIS WEEK or else you will have to kick yourself in the shins come next month once again when you see what was selected. I'm just trying to save yourself some bruises here.
Thoughts on August's choice? Excited about September's theme? Have any suggestions for future months? I'd love to hear it in the comments below.
And on that note, a huge thank you to all of you who have participated so far--Love, Yellow is such a fun addition to this blog and I can only hope you love it as much as I do!
