Hi everybody, and sorry for a long delay. This is me in September last year during London Fashion Week and Design Festival. I was spotted and my outfit was published in The Guardian. It seems like I was very early in spotting the yellow trend that has now exploded. And yes, I spent the whole of last summer in yellow, from neon to more canarie bird shades of the sunny colour. It is a real statement to wear a colour like this and will definately be seen! So, if you do not think you are confident enough keep it to adding some of this uplifting colour to your home or perhaps a pair of sandals or a summer.   Here I am mixing it with a bit of chocking pink. Jacket and bracelet from HM, scarf from Primark, skirt, leggings and shoes from Topshop. The bag in the forground was a bargain from Ted Baker at Bicester Outlet (there is a special trainservice there from Marylebone Station in London).

Me, again, in Stockholm in August last year! The background is a poster outside a Coop on Odengatan in Stockholm. I am wearing jeans jacket and tanktop from HM. Bag, Ted Baker Outlet in Bicester and necklace from Accessorize three years ago! Frames from Cutler and Cross, London.
Or why not have yellow or other colourful curtain rods in you house. Why not paint the ones you already got?

Add a splash of yellow to your home. Just look at this Art Deco inspired and lippy vase from Aram Store (Drury Lane, London).

This was the stand of GPlan at Interiors at NEC/Birmingham this January. Their new vintage collection had a lot of yellow mixed with petroleum blue, Mulberry are using the same colourmix for next season, AW 13/14, who said that interior design is walking hand in hand or just behind fashion, definitely not me. They walk side by side and not exactly on a line.  Walldesign by Hemingway Design.
Mary Quants signature flower is having a revival. Here at Topdrawer in January,  just look at the new collections from Prada!
Lace and glitzy jewelry. This is Meadham Kirkkhoff, but for you who is a great friend of your sewing machine, get some stretchy lace and get on with it! You can find glourious costume drama jewelry on the High Street to match this!
A perfect companion to the monochrome fashion. This is Topshop just now on Oxford Street!

This girl I found at London Fashion Week. Bag from Satchel and necklace from HM.

Back at Interiors in Birmingham this January where Pitfield Shop had a pop up shop and restaurang. Mix the yellow with greens and blues. Take an extra look at the old school chairs!

Why not on the back, back pack here shown at London Fashion Scout in September last year (SS13). Nice with pink shoes!

Sophie Webster is expected to be big! Look out for her name. Just read in Sunday Times Style Magazine that she will have her shoes at Selfridges, Dover Market and Harvey Nicols soon! I love these sandals from her SS13 collection shown at London Fashion Week last September.
This is for next winter! Wide with throusers and a long slightly oversized jacket. Wonderfully nonchalant and elegant, makes me think of Katherine Hephurn. Topshop Unique.

This chic lady in grey and yellow I found at London Fashion Week in September. Lovely outfit!
Loafers for chic girls. Mulberry for AW13/14! I love the mix or dark mustard and nearly neonpink!

I just have to add this picture her. It sort of fits! Sheep as seen in the Lake District a week ago!
More dressy, monochrome and yellow at Karen Millen now!
Mulberry AW13/14, mixes citrus yellow with petroleum green!
It is still winter. Get warm with this sunny duvet jacket from Uniclo. Only £49!

Want a yellow bag now at an affordable price. Could be this on from Zara!

Or perhaps just add a splash of colour to your garden or home with this plastic chair from Ikea, Vågö, at a much affordable price.
Finally, get inspired by one of my favourite designers just now, Louise Gray (here posing herself in front of her take on the latest Vauxhall (Opel) during SS13/14 at London Fashion Scout. Just look at her outfit! Get inspired girls!

Turqoise, always a fresh and uplifting colour. This spring we can wear it and surround ourselves with this vibrant shade of blue. Or it can be a bit more green and be called celadon...a more subtle and classic shade of blue or more likely, green. Above a sample of Louise Grays different and happy fashion for summer 2013.A

Turquoise on a plate! And with some bridsong to go with it. Seen at Topdrawer Exhibition last month.

Here this shade of blue as a table and ceramic footstools at Pitfields Pop Up Shop at Interiors (Exhibition) in Birmingham this January. Mixes well with orange, blue and gold!

Or why not colour your hair this different colour this spring. I found this Fashionista at London Fashion Week in September last year!

Wonderfully aged pots at Designers Guild on Kings Road. Sort of Celadon Turqoise.

Or why not dress your lampshade in new fabric and add some new edging to it. This shown at Harlequin @ Chelsea Design Center (London).

Mix with blues...and a bit of green. Designers Guild at their flagship store on Kings Road in London.

Stripes are here again, this spring in big time on dresses, trousers, leggings and mugs! In monochrome of course, add some colour to liven it up! My dress is from HM, shoes and tights from Topshop. Bag from a Principles outlet and pashmina from a local market.

HM big window display at Oxford Circus right now. "My" dress is the second from the right. Nice monochrome range right now!

Also on Oxford Street, Topshops new venue close to Marble Arch. Mixed up with cobalt blue and zesty yellow! Nice!

More Topshop and zesty yellow, I love it!

Funny stripes on a mug. Seen at Home (Exhibition a bit like Formex in Stockholm) at Earls Court a couple of weeks ago in London. From Dutch company Jansen+.
