mellow yellow

Played some major dress up today, so major in fact, that I really didn't leave the house once. (Hermit, anyone?) But it really got me thinking, when was the last time I let myself do this? When I was six? Eight? Last week? Ha, perhaps I need to make this a habit. I rediscovered some great finds in the depths of my closet that I've reworked a bit for this week's Weardrobe contest, Mellow Yellow.  These are some of my submissions. Cross your fingers for me. Mama needs a $50 gift certificate to Anthropologie.
