Hello Yellow

… I think I need you in my life this summer…

I saw some yellow wedge espadrilles last week; and since then I’ve been obsessed. Perfect coverage, perfect height, perfect wedge shape… If only I could remember where I saw them. My searches are coming up nil.

A yellow accessory is about how far I could go with actually wearing yellow.

As a deeply committed jeans/trouser-wearer and in generally subdued/monotone colours to turn up in full on yellow… too much to contemplate right now. Even in the sorcheo heat last week, (was it really only last week?).

So for me and yellow… baby steps.

So whilst I may not be a carnival of colours in my outerwear… lingerie and underwear can be a whole other story.

I love the modernity of this Asos set… concealed wire bandeau bra £18.00 & high waisted brief £10.00…

Free People at Asos offer something a little sexier; high apex non padded bra £40.00, thong £18.00.

This bralet from New Look is in the sale and mighty cute for the smaller chested, only £3.00.

This Elle Macpherson uw no padded bra is £10.95 from the Lingerie Outlet Store – only limited sizes available now.

Oh whilst we at it, Topshop Jemma, I have no need for, but I simply must have £49.00. Love.

Slightly more wearable everyday, these two-part sandals are from Topshop, £29.00, also available in blue and silver. Rude not to.

Sunshine could also come in to our lives in the form of bags

This £15 M&S yellow cross body bag is still doing it for me; a perfect pop of colour. This bag, and summer black. Love it. Though wish the strap were just slightly longer, I really don’t need a box bag to sit at my widest point.

From Aldo, the Peririen faux leather Mustard bag, now £27.98 in the sale…

I love this, again, Topshop – this one is in leather £75.00. Almost more banana that yellow yellow. (Fighting the urge to ask, does it come in black? Or tan?)

So how much yellow can you do? Full on, or just a hint? That’s just made me think… earrings… for another day.
