We are sisters that grew up in different decades with completely different personal styles, but we both enjoy finding a bargain and having fun with fashion. We don’t spend lots of time and money on clothing, but we like to work with what we have, be creative, and share style ideas and tips.

We're walkin' on Sunshine

From clothing to home decor, yellow seems to be the color of the moment. This cheerful, eye-popping color (which happens to be the first color the human eye notices), was one of this spring's biggest runway trends: 

The best part about this sunny shade is that it works with so many colors. Here are some of our favorite combinations that feature yellow. 

We love the simplicity and brightness of yellow and aqua. Simply Klassic posted some pretty photos of the pairing.

These Charlotte Olympia yellow blossom print flats show that yellow and fuchsia look great together. Both shades are the color of springtime flowers. We're thinking these flats would look cute with jeans and a bright top, or something a little less casual, like a flowy sundress. 

This Orla Kiely Daisy Stem Print Clutch and this outfit from Fashonista Trends prove that yellow really works with navy and darker blues. The navy definitely makes the yellow pop. 

We're loving this combination of denim, brown, and yellow from Unbenannt#230 on Polyvore. It proves that darker neutrals look great with lemon yellow. I feel more cheerful just looking at this outfit, don't you?


Yellow and gray seems to be the color combination that everyone's talking about. This outfit from Outfit Posts is an example why. Doesn't the calming gray looks great against the vibrant yellow? It reminds me of the sun peeking through stormy clouds on a rainy day. 

Here are some favorite yellow items straight from our closets:

Little Sis combined a neon yellow floral tank with denim. We think the light denim really makes the yellow pop. 

I just bought a lightweight, lemon yellow spring infinity scarf from Walmart (only 6 bucks!) I threw it over a plain white shirt to brighten up my drab outfit.

Little Sis threw a sunny yellow cardigan over a blue floral tank. Royal blue and yellow can make for such a pretty combo. 

She also paired her bright yellow cardigan with an entirely gray outfit. It's obvious why this color combo has been on the forefront of fashion and interior design. The yellow just pops against the calming gray.

I found this bright pink fitted jacket at Goodwill a few months back. What better color to pair it with than yellow?

How will you wear yellow this Spring?
