Not everyone is accustomed to wearing Yellow in winter, so knowing how to style a yellow dress needs a great bit of fashion knowledge. Ones mood can be affected by winter because winter is a time of cold and harsh winds . My mood has been affected by winter. To be fair, my mood has also been affected by other factors too… Thoughts of the future have taken their toll on me to the point where I started to cry but stopped the tears from falling. Then I read a quote saying… ‘’Don’t forget you’re human. It’s okay to have a meltdown, just don’t unpack and live there. Cry it out and then refocus on where you are headed’’. Then I cried some more and felt much better. And that’s how the story of the yellow dress begins.
“The color yellow exudes brightness, light, vitality, energy, optimism, willingness to grow, outshine and happiness. Sunflowers are the objects that mostly are associated with the color yellow.” And that’s why I decided to wear this dress. It made one day in winter a whole lot better and less gloomy.
