OOTD- Mellow Yellow

(Excuse the wrinkles, but real-life gets in the way of perfect pictures sometimes)

My yellow sweater complete with matching truck!

Don't you love when you receive a perfect gift? I met up with my friend this weekend so that we could get some girl time, but to also exchange gifts....from Christmas!! Yes, we haven't seen each other in awhile, lol. Inside my bag of gift goodies was this lovely yellow sweater. Yellow, along with red, is one of those colors severely lacking in my closet, so I couldn't wait to wear it. Paired with a pair of old pants and some new goodies (hello new shoes and necklace), I couldn't have felt better starting off the week. This new policy of adding instant loves and classics to my closet is going to make shopping a lot easier, or at least that's the plan. This resolution, like all others, is a work in progress.

Is buying the perfect present easy or difficult for you? Do you generally keep tabs on what people mention liking or wanting or do you request wishlists?
