Mermaids do it Better

I have become a huge fan of yellow and you can expect to see a lot of it this spring and summer on the blog. Today I am sharing with you one of the first posts from my latest Houston trip!  This graphic sweatshirt is a fun (and happy) colour combo that I love.

Houston was hot, sunny and just what I needed. This was a long winter and now we are in the rainy season. I really just want the good weather to get here quick.

This sweatshirt is soft and cozy and I love the cute saying that it has on it.  You can’t go wrong with a sweatshirt. The colour is perfect for spring and the warmer weather coming our way. This denim skirt is probably one of my new favourites.  It has a stitched design that makes it not your basic denim skirt. I love it! The sneakers are grey velvet and I totally adore them. I get so many compliments on these.

Always be yourself unless you can be a mermaid.

The colour yellow makes me smile.  🙂

The real star of these photos is the lovely lady behind the camera,  who is the gorgeous Maritere of Maritere Rice Photography.  She is amazing, super talented and so much fun. She got these killer sun flares!!! Aren’t they perfect!?!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day! I am on my way to Seattle for a couple of days! It looks like it is going to be rainy, but that is to be expected this time of year.

    Have fun in Seattle! I love that sweatshirt. Of course you should always be a mermaid if you have that option! Or a unicorn. The shoes are adorable too!

  • You look so pleasant, beautiful and really natural on camera. You were also great in matching color combinations.

  • I love the curls in your hair! And that is a cute sweater, but yellow tends to clash with my complexion.

  • Candy Kage

    Perfect fun and casual outfit. Love a great sweater and for it softness, comfort and warmth. Denim skirt is always fun and easy to wear.

  • I love yellow! It’s such a beautiful color that reminds me of the brightness and freshness of spring. That sweater is gorgeous- looks great!

  • These pictures are so pretty. Love the yellow against the blue! xx
