Looks from Life - Daffodils

I didn't get home until around 9pm last night, but as soon as I walked in the door, I noticed two daffodils in a vase of water on our coffee table.

The boyfriend had picked them for me on his way home from work (this is where you either awww or throw up a little).

They were the cheeriest yellow; so yellow that the color alone almost made me as happy as the fact that he had brought me flowers.

That yellow got me thinking...

Searching for more daffodils...

Like these, from Flickr photographer Monika Jansch.

I had forgotten how many different shades of daffodils there actually were, that the spectrum is far wider than simply yellow!

...which inspired me to make these various looks highlighted with the other colors of the famously yellow bloom:

Which is your favorite look?
Which is your favorite springtime flower?


Look #1:
J.Crew blouse
Yellow skirt (via Forever21)
Miu Miu heels

Look #2:
Lanvin t-shirt dress
Frye Fundamental flats (via Anthropologie)

Look #3:
Coral blouse
Woven cream tulip skirt
Yellow court shoes (via Debenhams)


  1. I love #3. The yellow shoes are fabulous. Yellow is my favorite color but I don't have any yellow shoes. I'll be on the lookout now.

  2. I love to vote - I opt for #1. I'm a J Crew believer & skirt is a classic. Fav flower would of been my grandmother's peonies from her Snohomish garden.
