It’s finally Spring! The trees in my neighborhood are blooming with beautiful pink and white flowers and there are daffodils are everywhere. I love daffodils because they remind me of my grandmother. Her birthday is March 21st, which is right around the time that they start blooming. When I was a little girl, I would go out and pick a huge bunch to give her for her birthday. As an adult, I often try to visit her but I was too busy with school this year, so I called her and talked to her for a while, which was really nice. I don’t know if they’re her favorite flower or not, but they sure hold a special meaning to me! So, while some folks may call this shirt mustard yellow, I’m calling it daffodil yellow in honor of my Granny Annie (yes, that’s what we’ve always called her!).
I wore this outfit to work on one of the nicest days we’ve had in a while. It was sunny, bright, and warm. I thought about wearing a light scarf with it, but worried I might get hot and take it off and what’s the point in that? Instead, I layered a bunch of necklaces with it, which I think look better than a scarf because you can still see all of the pleating details at the top. Add simple neutral flats and cute headband and voila, you’ve got a cute spring look!

You look so pretty in this bright yellow, Nikki! I love the story about your Granny Annie, too! My grandma Debbie passed away 5 years ago tomorrow, and her favorite things were the color yellow and polka dots, so I frequently think about her when I see either yellow or polka dots (and if there are yellow polka dots, it’s the ultimate Debbie reminder!!). 🙂
Thank you, Brynn. I think it’s so nice that we have something of our grandparents to honor and remember them with. I wasn’t very close to my paternal grandmother who passed away a few years ago and I think it’s sad because we didn’t have anything like that. But yay for daffodils, yellow, and polka dots!
You look great! Love this bright color!
Thank you, Darcy! This is becoming one of my favorite colors 🙂
