Cartoon Bluebirds Optional: Yellow and Aqua

Today is my Friday! What a lovely short week it's been. 
I'm celebrating the start of my weekend with this fabulous yellow dress.

  • Dress - Calvin Klein, consignment; last seen here (4th outfit) for dinner out with my inlaws earlier this month
  • Shoes - Prepare Guide, Fluevogs; last worn here a week ago with All The Things
  • Jacket (below) - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; last (not) seen here over last week's WW outfit

I called this my "Disney Princess Dress" all day (bluebirds optional, although I'm so tickled that Lorena added them here), and swanned about the office, swooshing and whooshing the skirt around.
It's a lovely dress, and I'm really not surprised that it won the Battle of the Yellow Dresses (here).

Outerwear - it's gotten chilly and windy again, darnit!
This really is the perfect spring jacket. All my other jackets are getting jealous from neglect.

The stuff:
I love these shoes. What am I going to do when they finally wear out? Buy more? Now, there's a thought...

Turquoise bling:
I was so happy that I remembered that I'd bought this amazing turquoise and pale green dragonfly obi and stored it away for summer. I think I only paid $1 or $2 for it! 

  • Obi - handmade, thrifted
  • Earrings - local, first wear
  • Ring - local

Tomorrow is our annual "Day of Indolence" in celebration of L's upcoming birthday, so I'll be back on Sunday! Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. That obi belt is super cool! Don't even think about your glorious shoes wearing out!!!

  2. Thats a flirty dress.. very cute and I love it with the hat. LOL your comment about "grandma dress" made me laugh.. thanks for that :)
    Have a super weekend. I'm off to Vancouver.. woot woot

  3. Gorgeous outfit! Those colours should be the official palette for May.

    Have a fantastic weekend, my friend!

  4. Oh, that jacket! I'm not surprised all your other jackets are getting jealous. Why would you need any other jacket when you have this totally adoreable one? How wonderful did you feel whooshing around in that beautiful yellow dress, then topping it off with this jacket, aaaahhh x

  5. Lovely outfit and love the turquoise accessories with the yellow dress. Oh I love that jacket so much.....


  6. Such a pretty springy look - for a moment I thought "this is very light for Sheila" and then I scrolled to see that you added a spring coat and a hat - and I said: now its Sheila ;)
