They call it Mellow Yellow

29 Feb

I often wondered how on earth yellow could ever be described as mellow (the song written by Donovan in 1966). Well, allegedly the song refers to the smoking of dried banana skins!

Anyhow, I digress, in case you hadn’t noticed, the shops are crammed full of bright spring colours, one of the most dominant colours around at the moment is yellow. From neons to soft pastels, there is a shade of yellow for everyone out there right now. Proceed with caution if you have cool undertones to your skin, full steam ahead for all you warms out there, including me yay!

Yellow is fun and flirty. Yellow is not for the faint hearted. If you are a teensy bit scared, don’t go for an overall yellow look, try it as an accessory, maybe a scarf or a belt. A really cool and on trend look is yellow jeans with a pale grey sweater, cashmere, if you can afford it. For a really fresh look, accessorise white with yellow or for a contemporary look wear yellow with navy. Trust me, it will look stunning.

I have my beady eye on these Carvela shoes . They have a slightly 50s retro feel to them and the ankle strap is trimmed with turquoise diamante. I tried them on in Kurt Geiger in Manchester Arndale last week. I have to have them. They will be mine. Simply gorgeous.
