Musings on Yellow - The Sun Dress

“I don’t think I’m going to get it.”


“I don’t look good in yellow.” I don’t, maybe, but my blonde hair matches the pattern of yellow flowers on the short, flowy summer dress.

“But it’s adorable.” It is.

I shrug.

“You usually love this style.” I do.

“Yellow makes me look all pasty.” It doesn’t. I don’t think.

“It does not. And it’s covered in sunflowers. Sunflowers are awesome.” They are.

“I can’t afford it.” I could.

“I don’t need it.” I didn’t.

I wanted it, though. It was cute. But… it was yellow. Well, a bit of white covered in yellow and gold sunflowers.  The soft material slid sweetly through my fingers, swished back into place.

Five years later and I’m still thinking about that damn sun dress.  I wish I had bought it when I had the chance.
