Ray of sunshine

Yellow has never especially appealed to me until I saw a yellow cardigan on this lovely blogger. I was sold straight away and was on the hunt for my own yellow cardigan. It took a few weeks to find the right “yellow” but I am happy to now have it.

Yellow just brightens up the day, it probably sounds silly but I  definitely feel happier wearing it. It’s funny how something so simple like wearing a bright colour can set you off in a good mood for the day. I definitely intend on adding more yellow to my life and other bright colours.

I started a new job yesterday, same organisation but a new branch. It is hard being the new girl again and I am looking forward to the awkward first two week stage being over. I find I go all shy around new people and take a while to really get comfortable in a new place. But change is as good as a holiday, right?

  3. I love your skirt! Even better it's from Kmart. I can see why yellow brightens up your day. It's a very refreshing colour. AND I love how we all get inspired by other bloggers. I rather be inspired by real people than in magazines :)

  7. Yellow is my favorite color. I had this favorite mustard yellow cardigan that I wore so many times that I just couldn't help but wear it on my wedding day. It's like 3 years old and I still love it! You look very cute in your whole outfit.

  9. It's taken me a long while to come round to yellow clothing.... but just recently I've been very tempted by shades of yellow and orange. This cardigan looks great on you - I'll have to try and find one of my own!

  10. You look lovely in yellow, Megan. And you're right, yellow can lift your mood and make you feel sunshiney! I find the same when I wear a vibrant pink {I'd wear yellow, but it makes me look sort of... ummm... ghastly!}

    Good luck at the new job. You've got a good attitude about it. Two weeks in and it'll be easy-peasy.

  11. You look beautiful (as always!) Megan!!! :) I love yellow on you :) Yellow has always been one of my favourite colours. I've been on the hunt for the perfect yellow bathing suit and have yet to find it! It's SO hot here in Texas that seeing you in a cardi, scarf and tights makes me long for the wardrobe of winter!

  12. You look adorable! I remember when you said you were on the hunt for a yellow cardigan . . . I looked at lots of different websites for you! :) But it appears you have found a great one, and I think you're right about yellow brightening everything up. I also really love your red lipstick!

    The first couple weeks are tough at a new job, but I find that the awkwardness goes away quicker than you think!

  16. It's great with that two layered skirt. It definitely has some real office chic about it.

    Which leads me onto my next point - congrats on the new job :) And I hope the awkward new girl feeling wears off soon.

  19. I love your cardigan! I have been wearing my new one (white with mustard stripes) almost every day.

    I hope you settle in to your new office soon! It's nice to have a change sometimes... where I work there are some people who have been there for years and years. One of my co-workers has been in his role since before I was born!

  20. Love your whole outfit Megan - makes me wish for Autumn here to just hurry!

    I owned a yellow jumper once in a very similar tone and know exactly what you mean about it brightening up your day.
