Bit Of Sunshine

Tuesday, February 28, 2012



Back in kindergarten I had a bright yellow summer dress that my parents loved dressing me into. Unfortunately I wasn’t too keen on it or any dresses for that matter. I was more of a tomboy at that age but the one thing that stuck with me was when my mom endlessly used to tell me that yellow is my colour because it beautifully dresses up my olive complexion, deep brown eyes and dark hair. You probably guessed already that yellow has never been a huge part of my wardrobe even after my mom’s convincing but lately I've been seeing all those amazing pops of bright sunshine everywhere and I think, it's time to give it a second chance and maybe even get myself a cute little sundress this spring.

Lovelies, how do you feel about yellow pops? Would you wear any of the outfits above? What colour can’t you see yourself sporting? xo

P.S: Just spotted those yellow-ostrich flats and I love wearing my light-mustard-colour pants that look almost like those.
P.P.S: Stunning yellow eye makeup.

Yellow is super trendy this season. I see it everywhere. Even on the dogs in Paris;-)

I'm particularly drawn to the dame in the maxi skirt. Such a beautiful carefree lady in yellow...

I always love a pop of yellow.
I am drawn to it. I just bought a great yellow purse for Spring.
people give me mixed reviews for wearing the color though. My fair skin and blonde hair, some think the color can wash me out...:(
But i still love it!

I think the long flowy skirt with pink top is my comfy and classy pick!

Have a great day Diana

I am very pale with blonde hair so yellow has never really worked on me but I do like a bold pop of it. I painted my patio post john deere yellow so I see it every time I walk out the back door - love it.
My mother wears yellow almost every day.

HiLLjO, that is such a cool idea and that skirt caught my eye as well. Such a brilliant cut, isn't it?

Diana Mieczan said...

Fashion, Art and other fancies, that is so good to hear! And Tish, totally true. That girl gives out such a cool vibe.

Amy, my friend Sofia has also fair skin and blonde hair and there are a few shades of yellow that look incredibly stunning on her especially during summer.
