Mellow Yellow

Tuesday

TuesdaTuesday
shoes - topshop
skirt - dorothy perkins
shirt - dorothy perkins
cardi - h&m
mac - miss selfridge


Here I am debuting my new mac! I love it. Isn't the little bow detail at the back the cutest? I love all the pleats in it too, I think it's a very flattering shape. There's something I love about this shade of yellow with the contrast of black & white. This week I am excited for the bank holiday! When I was a student I always used to hate bank holidays because they were always just another day off, but with more people everywhere! I dislike crowds really and would rather go shopping or the cinema or out for a meal midweek for a bit of privacy, but I guess when you work full time this changes. However, I am grateful that I am not a teacher who has to take holidays during school holidays! Instead I can pick the quieter periods that are also cheaper :) Do you have anything nice planned for the weekend? I think I am catching up with a few friends I haven't seen much since starting my new job and generally relaxing.

  15. I agree, the yellow looks really great with the black. Also, your coat is so cute! I love anything with bows on it, so naturally I'm drawn to your coat!

  16. I love the mustard yellow with a nice crisp white and black, simple but effective! And i totally know what you mean about bank holidays, as a student now, I don't like them either - my course is only 3 days a week so bank holidays generally just make my time off drag on and on.
    Think I'm gonna try some baking on my days off this year, having seen all of your gorgeous cakes and whatnot!
