I thought the title of this post was quite fitting as, 1. I’m wearing lemon and 2. I’m heading to Italy today, home of the title drink. I’ve been loving a little bit of yellow recently, of the faded pastel variety rather than the mustardy colour I usually favour. Getting outside of my comfort zone with (even more) sunshine-y shades.
This shade really does remind me of Italy and the faded colours of the pretty buildings there, glinting in the dappled sunlight. And of course the fresh lemon trees with their sweet citrus fresh smell. It’s funny how much just a colour can evoke such feelings.
I’ve not done a full ‘lemon look’ yet, (haha how weird does that sound?) unlike my beloved mustard, I’m holding out for the perfect dress. I feel like lemon is quite a tricky colour to pull off for me personally, unless I have a golden glow, so I’m sticking to this colour for the summer. Plus I have a new found love of leopard print, I’m leaning more towards 70s style rather than 90s, I love the leopard pattern of this pretty Rixo number. I love the warmth of this particular leopard print with the top.
I am definitely combining a few new things I’m into recently all at once, this colour, shell jewellery and leopard print, oh and yeah let’s throw in some cream cowboy boots for good measure, it makes for an interesting combination but I feel like it works?
