For years I found yellow an impossible colour to work with. Lemon was vulgar, mustard was dirty and looked old and orange-yellow looked cheap!
When I was a sign writer's apprentice I was challenged by a teacher to use different shades of yellow, and that totally changed my mind. Now I love yellow! It's possibly the most happy colour I know.
Sadly yellow does not suit me, at all! Of course I could wear a skirt or shoes, but haven't been lucky enough to come across anything in my size. I'd love to have Anna's mustard skirt, or Melanie's lemon one or the shoes in Anne-Marie's post. Instead I have a (brand new) bag.

In these hot summer days my striped dress is a favorite, and this time I'm wearing it with a dark tank - as suggested by a reader, last time it appeared on the blog which was last week.

This is as yellow as I get... I just had to have another close up of my new pearl necklace. I like the light green colour with the yellow.
Last night We had pancakes with cream and berries inspired by a post at Anne's Heart And Soul blog. I know I shouldn't but they were just irresistible!
The family loved it, and there were absolutely no leftovers! Poor dog!

Yesterday I wore my jeans with a plain black t-shirt, for the first time in my life! All other black t-shirts have either had embellishments or prints, or unusual cuts or been ruched. For colour I added a scarf and a few bangles, among which two are new!

You have to see my new bangles as well, so here's close up!

Now later I'm linking up with Visible Monday hosted by Patti at Not Dead Yet Style, where lots of other gorgeously visible women have uploaded their picture as well. Go have a look and be inspired!
