SAHMonday: Blue and Yellow Make Me Happy

Welcome to another edition of SAHMonday – weekly outfit inspiration just for the stay at home and work from home moms of the world (like me!) who aren’t heading out of the house on Monday morning.  You can check out the other outfits in this series here.

These outfits are perfect for when you want to feel comfortable, yet put together, so that you can face the day and any errands you may need to run.  Plus, most of these outfit formulas can be pulled straight from your closet.  If you don’t have my exact pieces, that’s ok.  Just use one of the substitutions that I recommend.

White Top, Denim Shorts and Pops of Yellow

Happy day after Mother’s Day!  For all you moms out there, I hope you had a GREAT one.  Mine was spent with my family at Disney watching our daughter Aubrey’s cheer competition.  Honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way!  Today’s outfit is one of the looks that I packed for our trip.  I chose some of my “happy colors” to wear to the happiest place on earth.

I honestly get the cutest, most unique tops in my monthly Stitch Fix.  I keep at least one every month.  This white top with crochet trim is no exception.  It just goes with everything.

See those yellow sandals?  That’s called the power of a bright accessory!  They tie everything together and take the neutrals to another level.  If you don’t have a pair of bright sandals yet, get one ASAP.  They make even your most basic basics look cute and put together – which is one of the many reasons why we’ll be styling bright sandals in the Summer 2017 GYPO Style Challenge opening this Friday.

Speaking of blue and yellow, let’s talk about this favorite weekender bag/travel tote of mine.  Since buying it a year ago, this blue ikat getaway bag has come along on every single trip I’ve taken.  It’s HUGE and you can fit so much in it. The cool part is it has a zipper portion in the center to expand it.  (Unfortunately the small jewelry storage case pictured with it is no longer available).


To illustrate just how big it is when it’s unzipped, here’s a pic of me with it. It seriously takes up almost half of my body! If you have any weekend trips/vacations coming up, I highly recommend it.
