A Yellow Skirt & Wishing on Dandelions

Sweater: Nordstrom
Skirt: J. Crew {on sale + additional 30% off...happy girl!!}
Belt: J. Crew
Shoes: Dispatch Boutique {Seattle}

"Make a wish!"
That's what my mama would always tell me before blowing the fuzzy little petals off of a dandelion. As a little girl, I remember hunting for these flowers at my brother's baseball games. I wanted to make a million wishes, because I whole-heartedly believed they would come true.  There's something whimsical and sweet and so childlike {in the best way possible} about finding a dandelion to wish upon. Still to this day I do it. Why? I'm not entirely sure. I would tell you my wish, but then it wouldn't come true silly


Right before I walked into J.Crew last weekend, I wished upon a dandelion I would find my favorite skirt on sale, and Ah! It was. I just love this neon yellow color. It is perfect for Spring and Summer, and probably Fall {with some boots}, too!  That wish already came true, so that's why I shared :)


Do you love yellow as much as me?
Have a bright and wonderful Thursday!
Love,

PS. All photos were taken and edited by Victoria Carlson Photography. Tori is a wonderful person and clearly a very talented photographer! I also squeal when I get the images back.  If you're looking for a photographer in the Seattle area, this is your girl :) Also, if you love weddings and engagement shoots as much as me, check out this shoot Tori did a month or two ago. It is stunning.
