It’s become quite a regular thing lately – wearing vibrant shades of yellow. It’s no secret that yellow is my favourite colour in the world (!) but even I was quite astonished yesterday – after doing a bulk load of washing – to see just how much of my wardrobe is sunshine coloured. I think it all comes down to my love of lipstick. Nothing makes a scarlet pout stand out quite so much as a backdrop of yellow, don’t you think? Plus, I’m forever obsessing over mustard/ketchup combinations – though I’ll admit this could possibly be due to the fact that I have a seemingly never-ending appetite. And also, yum, sauce!

Well, whatever reason it is – I looove this dress! After receiving an email from China Doll Boutique asking me to style one of their pretty garments, I knew straight away that this was the one. Puffed sleeves, a leopard collar, and in the perfect shade of bright marigold – yep, this one ticks all of the boxes. I paired it with my oversized leather doctor bag and a black fuzzy mohair hat. (Speaking of sauce – my hat has never been quite the same since an encounter with some ketchup. It took a trip in the washing machine, became slightly misshapen, but I love it still). My black t-bar flats (c/o Bait Footwear) kept me bouncing through the park – perfect when you’re on a photo taking mission! I’ve just loaded a new film into my beloved Holga camera, so stay tuned for a whole new set of lomo photos!

    That dress is so darling! Yellow + leopard print = genius. Love it! And you are right about the bright lips – they definitely stand out oh-so-nicely against the shade of your dress.
    Enjoy the rest of your day!

  5. The pictures look beautiful, and the dress is very pretty. I have to say that I love yellow as well and I agree that it is the perfect color to wear with red lipstick.
