Sunshine yellow (or when I dressed like an egg yolk) ...

I thought I would resume normal scheduling (hopefully) with this bright outfit which I wore a few weekends ago in the blazing sunshine. Isn't it cheery?! It was (another) Gap sale purchase and it is the perfect outfit for this humid weather. This was potentially a horrendous outfit for me as bright yellow usually doesn't suit me but I loved the dress so much that I couldn't leave it behind - even if I do look like I'm dressed like an egg yolk, haha! Certain outfits are guaranteed to put a smile on your face and this is definitely one of them! The straps on this dress make it look slightly like a tabard but they are flattering, even if  I look like a member of the von Trapp family ;)

Dress: Gap, sandals: c/o George at ASDA
I have been using macadamia oil on my hair again recently, the summer sun always frazzles my hair but a couple of drops of this help to smooth the frizz and improve the condition. I try not to wear make-up in the sunshine (nothing worse than it melting down your face!) but a swipe of blusher and a neutral red (is there such a thing?!) make me feel slightly less naked. 

My favourite thing about this dress is that it has pockets! What more could you ask for in a dress?! I spotted this bracelet in the Accessorize sale and although I usually find jewellery too fussy to wear all day, this one doesn't clank on my desk (always a win!) and its neutral tones mean it goes with anything- not bad for a few quid!

I love a swooshy skirt and this one is super fun, especially paired with these gorgeous sandals, I was skipping all the way to the park, haha!

Which colours do you find tricky to wear?

This yellow dress is the best!! Bright colours suit you so well. I always struggle with yellows and pinks so try to wear them more subtler, such as as accessories or paired with black.

What a sale find that was Maria! I think the bright yellow looks gorgeous on you!

I wish I suited this shade of yellow, you look ridiculously gorgeous x

Well I think the colour looks lovely on you. What a gorgeous dress! Good work, Gap! I have a similar style dress, but in jersey fabric, from Dorothy Perkins and I love the square neckline and straps. It's really flattering and feels quite 1950s.

I tend to avoid wearing white and pale, pastel colours as they wash me out, so I keep them for my homewares instead!

This dress fits you PERFECTLY. The colour is beautiful! One of my favourite frocks of yours.
