So this is the yellow dress. THE yellow dress I had planned to wear at the rewardStyle “Escape to Tulum” pool party a couple of weeks ago. It was in my suitcase, and I was ready to wear it! Unfortunately I could not wear it because I forgot to pack my strapless bra. Ugh! Total faux-pas.

I did wear it shortly after returning from Dallas to my friends house for some yummy BBQ. We snapped a few photos in front of our oh-so-picturesque garage door before leaving the house. I didn’t want to start peacocking at my my friend’s house, so it was better to snap a few photos at home before we left. I really wanted to share this dress with you!

Mustard is a hot color trend this season, and it is a new color for my closet. I tend to gravitate towards shades of blue, pink, purple, and green. Of course, I wear my share of black and white too! This season, I decided it was time to break out of my normal color pattern and try the mustard trend. I am so glad I did!

Do you know what my husband said when I came down the stairs in this dress? He said, “Wow, that’s a really nice dress. It looks pretty on you. Aren’t you overdressed?” haha This is a casual dress silly! I was surprised he said that because he tends to like form-fitting clothing, or short hemlines. It was really nice to hear him compliment a maxi dress! Love that!

This will be a really fun dress to wear during the spring, and summer seasons. It looks cute for a pool party, backyard BBQ, or as a beach cover-up; plus this mustard dress is under $20! Love!

So have you ever packed an outfit, or a dress, for a trip, and not been able to wear it on the trip, only to wear it later on?

Thanks for stopping by!
