19 May Sunshine yellow and a new neighborhood haunt
Hello everyone! I think everyone knows at this point I like wine. I used to get the gallon Franzia in a box in college. Then it was zinefindel which I do like, but have gone to a couple of tastings to know what i like. Who doesn’t enjoy a crisp, cold glass of pinot grigio in the spring/summer months? My husband and I went to this new Tapas ad Wine Bar called Bacchus Tapas and Wine, here in our neighborhood. It was nice to sit outside, very sunny and hot, as we were the only ones outside, but then again it was 1:30 in the afternoon, 90, but honestly , there was a breeze. I do enjoy being outside, but there is one thing about Charlotte, that usually happens every year, we have a short spring, or it goes directly from winter to summer. This is a hot spell. It will go back to the mid 70s, then maybe again up from there. It can be tough to “dress elegantly” when it is in the mid to high 90s which when we have had hot spells in the summer, get that hot. Basically, you certainly can if you know you are going to be in air conditioning, but I like to sit outside, view the scenery, and wear my sunscreen. So, we had a good bottle of white Pinot Grigio, I had a delicious summer green salad with focacia croutons, tomatoes, onions, pine nuts, and I added grilled chicken. Just enough when it was that hot out. Hubby had a side salad, which was similar to mine, but added blue cheese chunks, and then he had a sandwich, a toasted turkey, smoked mozzerella, tomato, on foccicia bread. We then walked around, as it will be a big complex with an ampitheatre for music, shops, restaurants, wine bar, and music. Overall, a nice day.
Have a great day! Jess

That almost neon yellow is exceptionally flattering for your skin tone and hair color. You look radiant. And I agree, it’s hard to be elegant in extremely hot weather…story of my life. :\

I have a bright yellow lace skirt which is almost identical to yours! I love it. Its such an amazing colour to wear in Spring or Summer and it works wonders with your hair!
Jess JannengaPosted at 14:57h, 23 May
Thanks so much. I thought the skirt was bright at first, but then really liked the yellow. I would love to see how you style yours as well. Thank you for the lovely comments, have a great weekend. jess

I love this yellow skirt. I have been looking for a yellow one myself and this one has beautiful detail. These sandals are also great – like them with the skirt and the dress.
Jess JannengaPosted at 08:05h, 23 May
Hi Carrie! Hope you are well . This yellow skirt is from Ann Taylor, last yearr. It very comfortable and bright! The sandals are my favorites, Sofft brand.Thank you!!

Darling outfit, and I love those sandals. Are they as comfy as they look? I would totally sit out there in the 90 degree weather and enjoy a glass with ya! ~Ann
Jess JannengaPosted at 07:58h, 21 May
Hi Ann! Yes the shoes are by Sofft. I have boots by them as well. Very soft, apprapo name. Thank you for the lovely comments on the outfit! jess
Mary MurnanePosted at 15:51h, 20 May
You look amazing, Jess! I love the yellow skirt! I think I’ve mentioned this to you before so forgive me if I’m being repetitive, but the color yellow just exudes happiness to me. Throw in an ice cold glass of wine with some balmy temps and that happiness turns into pure bliss 🙂
Jess JannengaPosted at 17:12h, 20 May
Hi Mary! Thanks so much for your lovely and kind words. I know what you mean about yellow. I feel the same. I also agree about the wine. I am a red wine drinker, but love some Pinot Grigio nice and chilled in the summer. The problem with white is that it is so cold and refreshing, I drink it faster, sip it, than red. :-)) I am looking forward to some “happiness” tomorrow! You too
Dawn LucyPosted at 13:02h, 20 May

MonikaPosted at 10:36h, 20 May
what a lovely skirt! Love the yellow and love the lace so them combination makes it perfect. And we share the passion for LV bags, Got my Speedy Damier in 35 and it´s one of my favourite bags too.
Jess JannengaPosted at 10:43h, 20 May
Thanks for popping in. I appreciate the lovely comments. When I first tried on the yellow skirt, I did not buy it as I thought it was too bright. Later, I went back and thought, get out of your comfort zone and it is a pretty yellow. Great taste in bags! I do love this Damier LV, holds alot and is a classic. Have a great week.
OlgaPosted at 02:15h, 20 May

Your yellow skirt simply says summer,love the off-shoulder top on you. A pleasure to meet you, thank you so much for dropping by.
Jess JannengaPosted at 18:34h, 19 May
Lovely to meet you too Jill as well. Thank you. It is quite bright and took a little getting used to at first, but then I went back to the store to get it, as I do love yellow in the spring and summer. Appreciate the lovely comments. You rock the red! I will pop in again, love for you to as well. jess
porcelinaPosted at 15:54h, 19 May
What a stunning necklace! Love it. I also like that you’re wearing yellow – as a fellow red head (well mine’s a lot darker these days) I have tended to avoid the colour but you look great in it. Porcelina x
Jess JannengaPosted at 16:28h, 19 May
Aw. You might just need to find the right shade of yellow. This skirt is bright. I do like cream yellows. Thank you, I like unique pieces of jewelry. Glad you stopped by!
saradoucettePosted at 14:38h, 19 May
You’re looking super summery! Love your red hair, so nice!
I like wine too but I usually prefer red. I’m Portuguese so my favourite is Douro and Dao wines 🙂
Jess JannengaPosted at 15:27h, 19 May
Hi ! Thank you for stopping by and your lovely comments. We are both red wine drinkers. I love Spanish wines: tempranillo, Malbec, Granache. I began with drinking Pinot Noir, which I still enjoy. We do, as you see here, drink white wines occasionally, but mostly in the summer when it is very hot. Have a great week.
DanaPosted at 14:09h, 19 May
Your skirt is beautiful, this soft yellow and the great lace! Also love shoulder free shirts, very feminin and sexy. Looks very nice and fits perfect to you. The necklace is lovely 🙂
I´m impressed of your gorgeous hair.. looks very healthy and the color is awesome! 🙂
have a wonderful week
Jess JannengaPosted at 14:17h, 19 May
Thank you Dana. I appreciate the comments. Yellow is growing on me. Oh, thank you about my hair. Due for a rinse soon as those pesky greys are comin in.
Have a great week too.

It is challenging to look elegant when the temps hit the 90’s, but you are looking gorgeous and cool, as always. Love the yellow skirt. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday! xo
