i am wearing: dress from urban outfitters, nordstrom t-strap heels, foley & corinna disco city bag, necklace from target, bracelets from h&m and stella & dot and my michael kors watch.

i think everyone knows by now that i LOVE mustard. so when i read that “yellow” won in the voting for everybody everywear, i was thrilled! if you follow me on twitter, you my have even seen me trying to get people voting for yellow. =) i wanted an excuse to buy a mustard dress a la olivia palermo. this was as close as i could find. and i don’t know if i love it. sometimes it sucks being tall(ish) because dresses are always short on me. i don’t mind if the dress is a thicker material but when it’s short and thin, i’m not as comfortable. and my husband thinks the shorter the better so i will never get a straight answer outta him! =) so i’m asking you guys…should i keep this or return it???

p.s. this dress was worn for these pics only.

    I think it is so cute on you, but I know what you mean about the length issue – I struggle with that too…especially when you are bending down to talk to your kids (not good)!

    Hi, I love your blog and you always look so lovely. I do love yellow and you can wear the colour, which can be hard, but I have definitely seen nicer dresses. I think return and hunt for something a bit more wearable? I know what you mean about the length too, I am the same, only 5’7 which isn’t really tall but often dresses are just too short without tights or leggings. Mind you, I live in Nottingham, England so 9 months a year this isn’t a problem!!xx

    I think you look fantastic but if you’re not comfortable in it, will you wear it often enough to make it worth it?

    I do love it. Would you get enough use out of it for date nights?

    LOVE the mustard color, looks great on you! I don’t think the dress is too short in the pics, but you definitely want to feel comfortable!

    Love this EBEW look! The Yellow looks so great on you and so perfect paired with the coral! By the way you totally look like Guliana from the E channel!!!

    I think it’s precious on you and would be great with jeans in the fall. Even though I’m on the opposite end of the height spectrum from you I know what you mean. Even as petite as I am, some of the dresses I’ve tried this summer are just not practical for taking care of a 1 yr old.

    It’s a good thing you like that color because it looks AH-mazing on you 😛 I love that shade of yellow but I feel like it doesn’t work with darker hair. I can do pale yellow though 😛

    I say keep! I think it looks fabulous on you, especially paired with that gorgeous necklace. It’s very ‘California’ to me. (and a big hello to San Diego County, from a former life-long San Diego girl relocated to The South. I miss my hometown enormously.

    beautiful summer look. the necklace is a nice statement next to the simple dress.

    I say return it. It looks cute in the pictures, but it’s a little too short for real life. Urban Outfitters stuff is usually too short on me, too – and I’m not even that tall.

    I think you look gorgeous! Miss California girl 🙂 I think you look great but if you feel it is too short…return it! That necklace makes the outfit POP. It is so pretty!

    You look amazing! That color is so pretty and perfect with your necklace, which I LOVE! Your dress can easily be winterized by layering it when the weather changes. Thank you for your sweet comments. Please stop by again:-)

    Where did your turban post go??? I LOVED it! You did NOT look like Rosie the Riveter. You looked chic and right on trend! Oh, and your up-close face shots look like you belong in a magazine. Seriously, you’re gorj!

    You look gorgeous and you have legs for days – so jealous! (JK – well not really) I love the color and the cut. I say keep it, because it is gorgeous on you. And you could wear it only on hubby dates – just and idea! But if you really are not comfortable, return it. Life is too short to buy clothes that don’t make you feel awesome! Cheers!

    Ha, ha … I wore ‘mustard’ too. What is the difference between yellow & mustard anyway? Just dropping from EBEW …

    Maybe it would be better belted? Your pretty figure is lost in it. I think it has a great color but it’s not just a dress you can throw on and “go” in, it needs to be accessorized…that can be annoying sometimes.
