Color Love: Springy Yellows

I tell ya what, I am so happy one of the great colors for this year is yellow. Its one of my all time favorites, hence my wedding lemon theme, and bridesmaid dresses. Yellow just make you feel good! The problem with me seeing all this yellow now is making me crave warm weather more then anything!

Girl Crush: Joanna Newsom

My new/old girl crush is Joanna Newsom, I've kinda always crushed on her. I swear she is a living doll. An adorable, whimsical girl who plays the harp with the most incredible voice I have ever heard. Her lyrics are so witty and cute, everything about her makes me smile. I know if you have not heard of her, you will fall in love as soon as you do. 

Isn't she too cute for words? My mom always said she wanted to get me harp lessons when I was little, she should have!
