A hint of lemon.

I have said all my life that yellow doesn't suit me and have never let any sunny hues into me wardrobe because previous experiments into the colour have left me looking sickly. I have blamed this on my skin tone, which suits most colours, just apparently not yellow... However, since yellow is possibly the hottest colour in spring's paintbox I have been trying to open my mind to it. Originally I wanted to work it into my look in a small way, with accessories, but then I got captivated by a sweet yellow shirt, and haven't looked back...

Blazer - ASOS; Shirt & Tights - Primark; Skirt - Internacionale; Shoes - New Look; Ring - Topshop; Bracelets - ASOS, Topshop & Lola Rose.

So it appears that while sunshine-yellow and egg-yolk hues make me look severely ill, a pale, pastel lemon shade suits me down to the ground! Finally, I have discovered a way to work pretty much every colour in the rainbow. I love the contrasting white collar, pleats and gold button detail of this shirt - nobody could believe it was from Primark, and to be honest I wouldn't if I hadn't bought it myself. For a bit of a wilder take on such a conservative, cutesy shirt I paired it with my leopard print skirt, mini-dot tights and my lovely coral slippers. I have also come to the conclusion that this blazer is severely overworn.

Also, here is a poor attempt at some beauty blogging, and a FOTD (Face Of The Day) to go with my outfit.. It just didn't show up in the full-length photo, but I actually went a little adventurous with my makeup today. You've probably guessed that my preferred way of making a beauty statement is with my lips, and that my addiction to lipsticks knows no bounds, so deciding to make my eyes the focus of my daytime look today was stepping a little bit outside the comfort zone. Since pastel colours can be worn absolutely anywhere in any combination this season, I opted for a light, bright green for my eyes, complimented with a hint of peach blusher, and the tiniest amount of pink lipstick I could justify. As for my expression.. honestly, that's the best I could manage at 7.30am.

Love and kisses, Tara xox
