Living in Cali, I can't help but think of the Lakers when I see purple and yellow together! Even still, I love the outfit you created!!

I really would never wear yellow and purple together, but this looks so pretty, I would try it! And I didn't think Lakers right away, but now that I saw that comment it's stuck!

Yellow is definitely not a good color on me, but these choices are so pretty. I love the clutch!

I just bested a pretty serious equity vesting model with no previous Excel experience, so my brain is full of =SUM(AA14,BA79)'s....Lucky for me, you've got pretty to distract me!

Oooh, girl. I love this! I should send you a picture of the wallpaper in my mom's kitchen, it's grape vines on a yellow background - basically just like that first picture. Love the outfit you put together around it!
