I might not venture outside for long periods of time as often as I should because life tends to get a bit crazy and I often sacrifice time being outdoors exploring for homework, To Do lists, and other such busy work. However, there is always a mystery and magic that the outdoors exudes in its rustling trees, sprouting plants, many crisp colors, and wildlife all around. The times I do get a free chance to venture outside (especially into the less populated and wooded areas) my mind immediately becomes a buzz of daydreams and I almost feel transported to a fairytale, or what I would more recognizably consider an "Anne" moment..........because we all know Anne and her imagination, especially with the outdoors. 

Maybe it is the silence with the songs and whispers of the forest, or maybe its the beauty in the life and flowers around me, but being in nature fills me with a since of warmth and inspiration that makes me want to sit down and write a novel or lie down in the grass and bask in the sun's warm rays for a nap (though I would wake up red as a tomato).

I am pretty sure my ankles were scratched up and my shoes filled with grass and seeds by the time I was done snapping these pictures, but it was completely worth it and this ensemble combination made everything even better and vibrant! 

Apparently this shirt is from Anthropologie.....who knew! I thrifted this shirt back around spring break and immediately fell in love with the color, print, and feel of the fabric (what is better than a lemon printed rayon blouse...nothing!). Then, come to find out this same shirt is worn by Riley in the TV show Baby Daddy (for any of you familiar with that show) and then while searching for its origin for this post, I find out its from Anthropoligie! Therefore, I now have one clothing piece from Anthropologie and I thrifted it for $4.....I would call that a steal and a treasure. 

A few years ago I hardly wore any yellow and now my closet has a number of pieces colored like the sun, including four yellow themed sundresses all made out of sheets! I have heard it said that while yellow is supposed to make you feel vibrant and energized it can often make one feel irritated......I however don't hold a negative view towards the color what so ever as it reminds me of the sun and its glistening rays! 

Apparently blue and yellow pair quite nicely together as I quickly threw this outfit together while running late to work, but it turned out fabulous and I think this combo will be on repeat this summer :) 

Do you like the color yellow or do you have any yellow pieces in your closet? 
Ever thrifted anthropologie for a steal? 
What are your feelings towards the outdoors?

  2. Loveliness, my dear! Yellow and blue are simply wonderful together, which I suppose is no wonder as they are complimentary colors on the color wheel. I love how light and effortless you outfit is!

    1. Thank you Charlotte! I love it when I pair colors together that go perfectly and then realize the reason why is because they are complimentary colors:)

  5. Eloquently written post, sweet dear. I completely agree with regarding the allure and intrinsically rooted power of nature. It does the mind, body and soul all well to immerse ourselves in such on a regular basis, even if it's just for, say, half an hour. We, as a species, were not designed to be indoors 24/7.

    This is such a lovely, cheerful outfit. I really like the 1910s - 1920s feel of the neckline and tie detail on your top.

    Many hugs & happy long weekend wishes,
    ♥ Jessica
