After watching the Six Nations rugby yesterday, and seeing daffodil hats, and lots of daffodils pinned to coats, it seemed only perfect that today we look at them as the March birth flower…
(Daffodil Days are a Cancer Society fund-raiser…)
For many of us, yellow feels like an inherently difficult color, but never discount the impact (and the fun!) that you could have with a yellow pedicure, or yellow sandals… but you can always wear the image of the daffodil in silver – no worries about unflattering yellow!
And I’m convinced that the flower in the middle of that very bright scarf is a narcissus…
Disclaimer – Yes, I’m using the same pants and shoes for most of these outfits. This is NOT because I’m bone-deep lazy (although post-flu, that could be worth considering!), but to show the versatility of these neutral pieces as a foil for a variety of accent colors. I’m a firm believer that investing in a core of neutral pieces pays off in ways which will surprise you!
When you wear yellow and black together, you might think bumblebees, or the Pittsburgh Pirates/Steelers/Penguins, but I don’t think that either of those is a good reason to avoid wearing them together! The additional colors in the scarf help diffuse that sort of feeling, I think.
I love yellow and navy, but I had to introduce a little bit of pink to keep it from looking TOO much like my high-school colors! The pink would make this sweater more flattering for many of us, too.
When brown feels too… dark? yellow is a perfect antidote…
If you love yellow but hesitate to wear it, how about a yellow bag? There are some great ones around, and it wouldn’t at all be a question of flattering your face. Maybe it won’t go with anything – so what? If you love it, do it….
This is an outfit for a day that feels like warm spring in your heart, but slightly cool spring on the thermometer.
Yellow is great to brighten up the deep richness of moss green…
I don’t know if I’m convinced that I want to start wearing yellow, but I can certainly admit that I madly enjoyed finding all of these pieces – that must mean something!
