Mellow Yellow




We're having an extended weekend here in England and after one day lazying around the house and one day at a Notting Hill Carnival (will post about that later), today was time to do grocery shopping. Cos...y'know, there was nothing left to eat in the house unless you want to count mouldy strawberries. Yikes!
So, this is my Stepford Wife gone grocery shopping outfit. I never was too sure about yellow what with my super pasty skin and all, but seeing that yellow had a bit of a moment this summer, I did succumb and bought this dress on ASOS earlier this year. I think I can just about pull the colour off. What do you think?
 
The necklace is from Forever 21, though my husband can't for the life of him understand why would anyone want to wear a key necklace. He reckons it would have been cheaper to hang my house key on the chain. "Practical as you would not lose your keys AND fashionable", according to him.

Dress: Asos
Necklace: Forever 21
Bag: Cleobella
Shoes: Kurt Geiger
Glasses: Ray Ban
Ring: Isharya

Just like you I'm wary of wearing yellow with my fair skin lol but you pulled it off hun. Looking forward to reading about your time at the carnival, xoxo.

I love it so much! It's so vintage-y and charming! And it looks like it was a beautiful sunny day. Matches your sunny outfit.

Men. They just don't get it. The necklace is adorable, and that bag/heel combination is divine.
