The summer colour that makes it pop

Who would have thought that I will go crazy over a colour that demands this much attention? It slowly became my favourite summer colour to wear and not only because the dress was made in Romania even though it’s Asos. Yep, another one! The first one I came across was a satin skirt with blue dots from River Island.

And I almost stopped here, but in the meantime I wore 2 more yellow outfits. I wrote this intro more than a month ago and since than, as you might know if you read my last blog post, a few things have changed. So this was supposed to be a post about a collection of outfits, not just one, like I used to do. However, since I decided I made my own rules, I find it kind of boring to write about a yellow outfit so I will tell you a story instead. Scroll to the end of the post if you are only interested in the outfits, though.

This is a story about how I failed to tell my girlfriends that I proposed to Paul. How ironic is it that one of the things that brings me most pleasure in life – writing (and reading for that matter) is also one of the ones I am sometimes terrible at? This is no modesty speaking, I promise!

I don’t seem to have a problem with longer texts, but I am rubbish at conveying short messages. Looking back at how I chose my words when I meant to tell my friends that I proposed to Paul – and that he said yes – I can see there was definitely a better route to choose. I went for the absolute truth…but we are not the most conventional people/ couple if you couldn’t tell already from the fact that I proposed.

Let’s just say that I did not choose the “do you want to be my husband? Yes or no” (gun at the temple- just kidding). I asked him if we wanted to join me on this journey that life is and a lot of other romantic blabber and took the ring out. So this is literally what I told my friends. The “join me on this journey” part…confusing much? We are still laughing about it…possibly in yellow outfits that I will mention again because my SEO seems to like it if I use the key word more often than absolutely necessary for any human being to notice it.

Heat wave – the yellow outfit

Now this is a colour that I almost never wore. I don’t remember wearing it when I was a child and I could count on a hand, the times that I wore a yellow outfit as a grown up.

After seeing InTheFrow’s pictures with the yellow dress against a beautiful Maldives sunset, I was irremediably sold! I had to put together a yellow outfit. So I went crazy and picked more shades of yellow just to make sure there’s one for anyone.

When wearing yellow, I don’t believe that your complexion will be decisive, I believe it’s more about the hair color. And as we, ladies (but not only), like to experiment with out hairstyle and colour a lot, things might get tricky sometimes.

There are a few ways to wear a yellow outfit: you either go full on with it, or you start shy by wearing yellow accessories or a print that has a touch of yellow. As you might know by now, I like experimenting and getting myself outside my comfort zone, so I went all in with the outfits that you are to soon see. I admit, I do not feel comfortable wearing a yellow lipstick yet (does one exist?), but I would gladly rock a yellow eyeshadow with maybe a black eyeliner to make it a touch more wearable.

I am posting this blog after a week the pictures were taken. Sometimes, because we like an outfit too much and we have no patience to wait for the British weather to get better, we get out into the cold and we shoot the outfit. However, this time, there were summer temperatures when we shot the yellow outfits. One week later, it feels like autumn again, not even spring which got me thinking about why the next day delivery service works so well in the UK. We joke a lot about the weather, but the truth is, if you want to wear something specific, the sooner it gets to you, the more chances you have wearing it.

As one of the information boards was saying in one of the tube stations: “British summer (16 – 22 April) – gone but neverĀ  forgotten”
