Yellow and pink make awesome looks, but I fail to love yellow

Styling fall’s yellow with pink trend

Yellow is not in my color palette. If at all, a citron or neon yellow works on me. Thus, the only yellow items in my closet are the sunflower yellow bag shown in today’s post and citron yellow pumps. I use this bag or the pumps when I want to add a pop of color to an outfit in neutral colors, typically with an all or nearly all black outfit. Given fall’s yellow plus pink trend I tried this combination. Well, it’s to don the trend, but I prefer the pairing of yellow with neutrals due to the stark contrast.

Yellow is not so me

My late mom always said that yellow looks great with my black hair. For starters, I am a brunette. Furthermore, a color should look great with the skin and make your face pop. Yellow close to my face washes me out and I look sick.

Why I bought yellow pieces

I bought the sunflower yellow bag because it is a great addition for a neutral color outfit in summer. In winter, the bag can add a opop of color to an all black outerwear. As my mom said, black and yellow look great together. In my opinion, that combination is much better than fall’s yellow and pink.

It also meant that there are three featured party guests this week. Don’t forget that the easiest way to get featured at the party is to become a co-host. All you have to do is to send me an email of your willingness to be a co-host. We then will agree on a date and I will send you the linkup code that you add to your post.

Sadly, there were not many votes 😦 , probably because everybody was busy enjoying the long weekend. Bad timing of last week's party being the 75th! 😉 Rosie received the most votes. She is the blogger at Life is Just Rosie. Isn’t her floral dress adorable? It can also transition to fall easily by adding black tight and fall sandals!
