Today, I’m featuring a saffron yellow dress from Eva Mendes for New York & Company. The dress is the same shape/style as a leopard dress I already have. I normally don’t like having duplicates of the same look, but I fell in love with this vibrant and gorgeous color and I’m a big fan of the easy shape of this dress.

After getting the dress in the mail though, I second guessed myself. Was it too yellow? Would I look like Big Bird? LOL
I had already decided to keep it, but after I asked my step-daughter what she thought, I was sure in my decision. She said, “That’s a great yellow! It looks like the sun!” Being the sun worshiper that I am, how could I resist? Besides, she did inform me that Big Bird is her favorite bird!! 🙂

To tone down the yellow a bit for work (and because the dress requires some shoulder alterations), I threw on my navy military jacket and added camel heels.

I love the overall look, and pairing it with navy makes me realize that this yellow will work well into the fall, so I should get a lot of wear out of it.
Are you a fan of saffron yellow???
