Everybody Everwear: Yellow

I'm still stuck in vacation mode but I couldn't let another Everybody Everywhere pass me by... especially since this one features the color YELLOW!  Don't worry, I'll give you vacay details but I still have to organize the pictures and my thoughts.

This color is so stinking cheery!  How can anyone be unhappy wearing such a bright color.  You are all familiar with my recent obsession with this color because I keep bringing it up (here and here).  While looking up the what the color represents I was surprised to find so many negative connotations to the color: yellowbellied, don't eat yellow snow, yellow fever, a yellow flag indicates quarantine and it also serves as a color of caution.  I'm not scared or even cautious of this color... I LOVE IT!

My birthday is one of the exciting things that happened while I was away.  My boyfriend and his kids gave me a sundress for the trip to Mexico as well as the fun yellow lovelies below.  The yellow beads on the yellow necklace are faceted just a little so when the light hits them it gives off a nice sparkle.  And I can't tell you how excited I am about the yellow purse.  It is the perfect size for travel.  I can comfortably wear it across my body, it is roomy enough to fit my passport, a water bottle and my camera, but it isn't so big that it's overwhelming. 

Yay for birthday presents!

Turns out that I also have an special place in my heart for many songs that feature the word yellow:
"Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" by Elton John

"Big Yellow Taxi" by Joni Mitchell
"Yellow Submarine" by the Beatles

While I like the color combo, I can NOT stand the song:
"Black and Yellow" by rapper Wiz Khalifa
