It’s no secret the color yellow is near and dear to my heart. If you’ve been following along for awhile now, you’ve probably heard the story about how the blog got its name a few [okay, maybe more than a few] times. But if you’re new around here– welcome! Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? Fun Fact: LIY started out as a gratitude journal. After documenting my daily joys for 365 days straight, I decided I wanted to continue the practice- virtually. Insert Living in Yellow. So why yellow you ask? Because to me, yellow = happy. When I wear it, I instantly feel my mood turn around. I feel more energized, full of life and have an easier time seeing the glass half full, especially when said glass has something delicious waiting for me inside.
So fast forward 10 years [How in the world has it been TEN years already?!], and I’m still living in yellow literally and figuratively. With that said, whenever I spot yellow goodies living on a website, a small part of me “needs” to have them. And that’s where Nordstrom comes in. Another fact that should come as no surprise to you? My love for Nordstrom. Nordstrom is my one stop shop when it comes to getting dressed– in practically every color under the sun. But in today’s case, we’re talking all-things yellow. With free shipping and free returns, options to buy online and pickup in-store, shopping online has never been so joyful. You better believe I’m a frequent Nordstrom shopper, so being a part of the Nordy Club gives me plenty of chances to earn Notes for future shopping trips, free alterations, early access to shopping events, and so much more! I recently stumbled across a few yellow finds from Nordstrom and today I’m sharing them in hopes of spreading a touch of happiness to Y-O-U [and your wardrobe] this spring!
It’s All in the Accessories
I know what you might be thinking, “Sorry Erin, yellow is NOT my color”. Hear me out. While I firmly believe there’s a perfect shade of yellow out there for everyone, we’ll start slow for beginners. If you’re new to the hue, but still wanting to dip your toes in, may I suggest adding a couple fun accessories to your closet? If you tend to dress in neutral tones, a bright pop of color is a great way to brighten up your wardrobe [not to mention your mood] this season!
The good news? Spring has officially rolled in. The bad news? It snowed last week. Unfortunately “Spring” in the Midwest usually includes those not-so-enjoyable flurries. So the warmer weather hasn’t decided to stick around yet, but never fear. Spring sweaters are here. This one adds a touch of sunshine to your outfit– perfect for days when the real one isn’t shining outside.
Back to the Basics
Last, but certainly not least, is the happiest tee you’ll ever put on your body. Between the color and fun, yet discreet, embroidering, it had me dreaming of my happy place just by slippin’ it on. Whether your happy place is the beach or the backyard, this little number instantly elevates your basics. And if you’re anything like me, it’ll elevate your endorphins too. Here’s to living in yellow; both literally and figuratively!
Founder and creator of LIY, Erin turned her dream of a hobby blog into a full-time career which she now runs alongside the LIY team! When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
