The color yellow

A conversation with a friend
Me: “Hmm, it’s quite yellow….”
Friend: “Yep, no doubt about that ….”
Me: “I mean, it’s really really yellow, in your face yellow…..”
Friend: “Yes, but it’s cute, and your colors can handle it. I could never wear this color myself, my blond complexion could never pull it off.”
Me: “And why’s that? The way I see it that’s exactly what would suit you when you’re blond and fair!”

So I guess I’m not the only one having second thoughts about this color, anyway I finally got convinced to keep this jumper, though I’ve never been a fan of sharp yellows and always preferred the washed out scale. Now, as I’ve already taken a step outside my comfort-color-zone I’m probably soon gonna break the only “don’t” color-mix I have, pairing black and yellow, suddenly I just think it works, and aren’t rules made to be broken?

Yesterday’s outfit when I headed for Friday drinks followed by dinner at L’Etranger, I wore a denim skirt by Acne, new jumper by Altuzarra, bracelet Cooee, watch Tagheuer, bag and shoes by Celine.

    It’s awesome, your friend is right (I think it’s more to do with skin colouring though than hair as to whether it’s a good match). Loving that new skirt too!

    Structured yet effortless. Contemporary yet classic. Sophisticated yet fresh and youthfully elegant. That’s why you are unique and exceptional my dearest Hedvig!
