Yellow Dress

Outfit details: Alice + Olivia Dress | J. Crew Blazer | Aquazzura Heels | Anthropologie Belt | Vintage Clutch & Earrings

Do you guys remember Kate Hudson’s head-turning yellow evening gown from the movie “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days?” Like most girls at the time of its release, I was obsessed, and the idea of a yellow dress has been firmly ingrained in my memory ever since. I spotted this yellow silk maxi at Bop two years ago when it was out of season, and I knew I wanted it despite my best efforts to resist (I came back to the store and tried it on several times before purchasing). Where would I even wear such a bold dress? I finally gave in to my longing for a yellow dress and am SO happy I did…

I’ve worn this dress with different combinations of accessories to a few weddings now, and this summer I’m thinking I might even try it with flat sandals. Last weekend I pulled it out to play dress up for a Saturday evening at the theater followed by late-night drinks and dessert at Gilt Bar, and gave it an entirely different look with a classic navy blazer since it was a bit chilly in Chicago.
