Yellow and Grey Week!!

Natalie at Natalie's Sentiments has made this week Yellow and Grey week, which has inspired me to celebrate this wonderful color combination!  Honestly, since I saw I Love You, Man last spring I have noticed that happy sunshine yellow is BACK IN and is fabulous!  I have been collecting yellow things since then and now have quite a few t-shirts, sweaters, a miniskirt, jewelry... aaah!  It is so wonderful!  Makes me feel fresh and springy all over again.  So in celebration of Natalie's themed week...

I thought I would share some of my favorite yellow pictures with you!

The looks that started it all: I Love You, Man movie

Anthro top

Mod Cloth dress

Anthro placemat (a great DIY project...)

And one more, just to show my dedication... here I am last May on a trip to Florida, wearing... wait for it... yellow and grey!!!

Wow, that was a lot of photos........ and of course there's all the greatness at BLACK.WHITE.YELLOW.  But that's enough for now.  But stay tuned for more pics of my bedroom as I re-decorate with yellow and white!


  1. Thanks for the inspiration. It's fun to see some color since we here in northeast OH haven't seen the sun in months. I didn't know that was the new color combo, but will be attuned to it now. I love the damask fabric of your headboard, pillows and dress! Fabulous!

  2. Yellow and gray has been a source of inspiration for me for years, though it hasn't shown up much in my clothes... I love all the photos you've shared, esp. the L.A. wedding!

  3. What an amazing spread! Fabulous blog!!!
