There’s nothing that brightens up a day quite like a bright yellow dress! I must confess, I’ve actually never owned one before. I suppose it’s because I’d always overheard people decry yellow as an “unflattering color.” I have to say… with this show me your mumu yellow dress, I’ve found quite the opposite to be true!

Those of you who have been visiting Lonestar Southern for a while know my go-to qualification for any potential purchase – the “fun factor.” (Forgive the cheesiness.). Is it fun to wear?  Because there are too many options out there  to not love what you are wearing! And take it from me, the “fun factor for this bright yellow beauty is off the charts. Not only is the color such a standout and instant mood booster, the cut is just as fun!

I love the flouncy, flirty fit with the criss cross neckline. I was also impressed to find that the straps are adjustable, and though the back is cut low, it lays flat against your back. In fact, I’m trying this dress on over in my Instagram Story today (only viewable on your phone) so you can see for yourself! You’ll also see that the color is quite a bit more vibrant than it is in these photos.

Like I mentioned above, don’t forget to check out my Instagram Story (my username is LonestarSouthern)  today before 9:00 pn EST! I’m trying on a bunch of cute pieces I just got in. Click here to see all of the details to everything in the roundup!
