Something that might strike you as odd if you know me in person or you're a regular blog reader, is that I used to hate the colour yellow. I'm naturally dark haired and I always felt that it didn't quite match up with my skin tone. Recently, I have absolutely embraced it. It seems simplistic to subscribe to that idea that dressing in bright colours actually improves your mood, but I have to say, it often works for me! And that is why you're being 'treated' to a sunflowery look today... photo 6b0b1483-ed69-4c87-97e4-81ca9a9f02c8_zps1b27d3d2.jpg
This floral dress was kindly sent to me by House of Fraser, and I absolutely love the intricate floral print. It is probably the ultimate tea dress, and thankfully, long enough so I don't have to wear shorts under it (a problem shared by tall girls across the globe). I dressed it down here for an outfit that I would actually, shockingly, wear outside of my back garden, which is more than you can say for most of my outfit posts.

Another thing I love about yellow is the way it goes with red, which may sound just a little bit Ronald McDonald, but I absolutely love the contrast and hopefully it doesn't look too clown like. Alongside my yellow beanie I wore my Mac 'Lady Danger' lipstick, which really is the perfect red. I promise you, I've actually found it, after years of searching! Also, this is the proper debut of my new backpack. Kankens seem to be the rucksack of choice now, as they come in an array of colours and are particularly useful for laptop users! Mine has been an absolute godsend and a wise investment for when I'm going away for the weekend or need to lug my laptop around.

What colours make you happy?
