I love mustard yellow and white. It’s weird, because when I was younger I hated yellow. It looked awful on me. Now though, it’s a favourite. I’m sure it has something to do with changing skin tone and hair colour as we age. I don’t think it’s a bad thing. It just means we can play around with colour a little more when we go shopping 😉

Massimo Dutti

Last week, we had friends over for dinner and as it was a little breezy, I figured white jeans would make a nice change. This pair came from the sale at Massimo Dutti last summer. They’re super long though so I can only wear them with high sandals – but I do love the flares – I think  they’re a flattering shape on most women. It would be good to have them shortened but because they’ve got a turn-up, I’m not sure how to do it. You might remember them from my post on black, red and white.

Extra dessert!

I wouldn’t normally wear a loose fitting top with flared jeans but on this occasion, when I added this thin mustard yellow blouse, it just seemed to work. I tried tucking it in as well but preferred the floatiness of the loose fabric – it also meant I could tuck into the cheesecake I made for dessert ;).

Mustard yellow and white

I must admit that I’ve had this mustard yellow blouse for a few years now and I think I’ve only worn it once! Although I love the fabric and the colour, it is very thin fabric and when I hold my arms out, you can see right through to my bra lol. Hence the need to keep the arms down 😉 It’s also a little transparent!

Jewellery

The necklace is actually two of the same – a gift from mother-in-law last Christmas. There’s something about mustard yellow and purple, isn’t there? Actually, just like mustard yellow and white, any shade of yellow and purple is a match made in heaven. The beautiful old style ring was also a gift from my mother-in-law. And I won the bracelet on Twitter a few years ago (I used to win stuff all the time!).

Are there colours that you love to wear now that just didn’t work when you were younger?

    White and mustard are perfect for summer. In winter, I like mustard with gray. So cool! Thanks for linking up to the Top of the World Style linkup party.
