Outfit: Mellow Yellow With A Bow


Mellow Yellow 1

I’ve never been a fan of the colour yellow. I don’t really know why, I just remember when I was small wrinkling my nose in disgust every time someone said it was their favourite colour. I was always more of a violet or mint green kinda girl. In fact, maybe that is what the problem was – yellow was just so obvious and so ordinary, and well, I was always a bit ‘extra’ as a child, so I guess my heart always leaned towards things that were just a little bit more than just a plain old primary colour. Booooring (it’s ok that you want to slap 6 year old me right now, by the way, I would probably want to too…)

These days though, it’s all change. Well, not completely, I still love violet and mint green and a whole rainbow of other colours, but also, good old fashion yellow as won me over. Where I used to see it as dull and ordinary I now see it as bright and sunny and all things cheerful, and a colour that never fails to make me smile. Still, it seems there isn’t a while lot of it in my wardrobe, so when the rather darling ‘Megan’ dress went on sale at Joanie Clothing, I made a specific effort to rectify that problem. Sure, the mint green version was just stunning. And the pretty pastel pink one was also right up my street. But yellow – yellow was a colour I needed a little more of in my life so the decision was made! It also meant I could find a way of justifying yet another Joanie purchase but let’s just gloss over that shall we….

It really is the cheeriest of dresses, yellow or not. It has a beautifully full skirt just perfect for twirling in, and a boned bodice to make it all kinds of flattering. Then of course they went and slapped a big ol’ bow on the front and, well, you know how I feel about bows so if anything it’s incredible that I didn’t buckle and buy it in all three colours…. It’s a good job it’s no longer available or I probably would…..
