Sunflowers, hearts and mustard yellow

Don't those sunflowers just make you smile? These beauties are currently residing in my kitchen. Anyway, back to the point (in this case, my outfit post). I'm slowly getting used to doing outfit posts, and after such a great reaction from you lovely people, I will try and do a few more. Today's theme is all about yellow!

I'm loving the AW trend for mustard yellow, but being of the 'English Rose' variety (read: pale, very pale), I can't really wear it anywhere near my skin. That's where this great pencil skirt from asos comes in. With tights and a top, I get to wear this fun and bright colour without looking ever so slightly jaundice.

I'm really into mixing pencil skirts with a slightly grungy outfit, so as not to look too prim or secretarial. Teaming a pencil skirt with a baggy tee and shoe boots is one of my favourite pencil skirt outfit combos. To add a bit of cuteness to this look, I added in some Pamela Mann sheer heart ankle socks from (Fearne Cotton's a fan of them, too!). They kindly sent them to me to try, and I really love them. Although the hearts show up better against skin (see below), I love them layered over my black tights.



  1. Brilliant, just what we need to brighten up these miserable wet days. I've been trying to brighten up my dark warm winter clothes with bright accessories...certainly makes you feel a bit better x

  2. It really does, Sue! I might even try mixing it with purple. Mustard yellow looks great with marl grey too. Cx
