Dressed in Mimosa

{photo by Saul GM}

I have to say I'm not a huge fan of yellow but this beautiful photo of Mimosa flower and gorgeous photo shoots are certainly changing my mind, I'm thinking beautiful summer dresses, silk blouses, show stopping gowns...




what the high street shops has to offer:


{Ted Baker Dress, Forever21 Scarf, UO Silk Blouse, Topshop Ring & Necklace, French Connection Bag, Miss Selfridge Top}

If none of above takes your fancy, how about these beautiful designer pieces?

{Marni Necklace, Diane von Furstenberg & 3.1 Phillip Lim Dress, Chloe Bag, Monica Vinader Ring, See by Chloé Blouse, VW Shorts!}

Will you be wearing the colour of the year this spring/summer?

Wow, the dresses are gorgeous!
I must admit, I am not a big fan of yellow either, but these dresses are definitely an exception.

I would love to trade links :)
I will add you now xx

Sal said...

I hope to! This warm, rich shade of yellow makes me feel so cheerful ...

I'd love to exchange links, lady! Just popped you into my blogroll. ;)

Flashes of Style said...

Oh I love this entry! Yellow is one of my absolute favorite colors to wear.

Suzanne said...

I do like yellow - just not on me! I'm a wearer of cooler/darker colors... gray, purple, navy, etc. Although I have been known to throw in some bright pink every once in a while.
Those dresses are beautiful though. Perfect for spring and summer!

Dionne said...

I love that yellow purse!

That mimosa plant looks like the Australian Wattle plant (http://www.mooseyscountrygarden.com/wattle-woods/wattle-flower.jpg), don't ya think?

Whata pretty blog! can we exchange links? ; )

Blair said...

I really adore yellow--especially bright yellow but unfortunately I have realized it is not the most flattering color on me. So I am going to just stick with bright yellow accessories this year:) Lovely pictures tina.

Caroline @ Absolutely Unique said...

I'm loving yellow lately... Loved your picks, Tina! I fell in love with that cocktail dress on the girl laying on the table... Gorgeous!

lovely sets, I love yellow, it is definitely a huge trend

citysage said...

LOVE that philip lim dress. of course everything he does is stunning, so it comes as no surprise!

i'd love to have a few items in this color---a great pair of shoes, or a sweet skirt!

vicki archer said...

Gorgeous colour Tina - I would love something yellow, xv

anonymously chic said...

i can't get enough of this lovely color! i especially like wearing yellow when i'm not feeling well b/c it instantly brightens me up so other people don't think i'm sick.

May Kasahara said...

mimosa perfume is the best in summer. I wish L'oocitane hadn't discontinued theirs. it was pure LOVE.

Marie said...

Luv the silk blouse, so feminine and also the yellow with gray tote bag...and thanks for posting a photo of a mimosa flower...always thought mimosa was a drink with breakfast (ha!ha!)

Holly said...

well you make me want to wear yellow all summer. loooove the ed. shots

paula said...

I love yellow, but look horrible in it. I have way too olive of skin to pull it off. I love white personally, not practicle but I love it.

Diana said...

I love yellow! It was my wedding color :D
These are so pretty!!

The Polka Dotted Owl said...

I have always loved the many shades of yellow (always looked good on us brunettes). I am falling in love with the vintage look of blouses for this spring and summer. That See by Chloe blouse is amazing! I will have to hunt down a cheaper, much cheaper version:)

sarah said...

Yellow is a hard color for a blonde to wear. But if I find the perfect sunny shade it makes my day. These are gorgeous picks!

Winnie said...

That Philip Lim dress is completely gorgeous.

I bought two yellow dresses last summer after never being a fan of yellow. I can't wait to bust them out and wear them this spring!

Twobreadsplease said...

I love the yellow editorial. I have a big floaty yellow dress which sits in the back of my wardrobe, I think I'll have to break it out now. xx

captivateme said...

oh my goodness, so, so, so beautiful, my dear! just lovely :-)

essence said...

Wow, great post as always!
I love that Philip Lim dress, and all the images,

xoxo

Rachel said...

I have to admit that I do love yellow, especially if it's paired with grey. It's just so cheerful.

Hanako66 said...

I love yellow...those photos ae amazing

Rebecca said...

Julia said...

I'm transfixed! There are so many beautiful, briliant, and gorgeous images here. i love all the combinations of skirts and blouses and bags! Wonderful job, darling!

Kotori said...

I have to say I've never been a fan of yellow on myself, but these new hues are starting to win me over... so tempting.

Natasha said...

Thanks for the comment!
I really like this :)

Tiffany said...

have been adoring your blog since I found it a few weeks ago! thanks for coming to visit mine.

I am never a fan of yellow on me but I always love it on other people. Adore this post though, makes me want to go try out yellow again.

Luna Supernova said...

yellow is such a difficult colour to pull off but the editorial is stunning and the UO blouse is gorgeous also.

thankyou for the lovely comment, i'm sort of a model but not really. i'm signed with an agency but was only signed a very short time ago so i havn't done anything modelly yet haha. i am having my test shots taken today though. im nervous!!

Deb said...

I am ABSOLUTELY all about the mimosa color for the spring/summer. Normally I'm not one to spring for yellow, but these days I just can't get enough!

Mademoisselle Chic said...

I really love this color! These images are fantastic :)

Erika said...

That yellow Topshop flower ring looks identical to a fuschia one I bought at Forever 21 on Friday. I kind of love that yellow is in this season, but I'm not sure how good it looks on me. I do, however, plan on buying a mustard-colored bag - if I could just find one that I actually like.

The Voguette said...

OMG TINA!

Yellow is my all-time favorite color, and I was just thinking about busting out my bright yellow spring coat today when I came across your post - Now I've decided its a definite YES.

The editorial is FANTASTIC!!

*sighs* Oh how I love your blog.

<3 Jessica

Taylor said...

yay i love yellow! im so glad its coming back

Savile said...

The dresses are soo cool!
Awesome blog btw

drollgirl said...

i like the idea of yellow, but it is tricky to pick the RIGHT yellow in clothing if it is going to be next to yer face. i am going to make it work somehow! or keep it on the lower half or as accents only.

Cassiopeia said...

:-D The Vivienne Westwood shorts are SO on my wishlist! Thanks for the comment... I do love that dress. It doesn't come out of the closet often enough lol.

Love Where You Live said...

I like yellow, but I do confess that I'm not taken with all hues. And to get the right interior yellow can be challenging, I think. But, here's to the cheery shade, -susan

rachel kara said...

this is like a 100x better version of a mimosa post I did a little while back!

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Imogen said...

These outfits are amazing

Courtney said...

Oh I am swooning- those photos are gorgeous. And I love almost every designer piece too (which are so not in my budget!) I don't know that warm, bright yellow looks so lovely on me, but I would like be able to pull it off.

Lobster and swan said...

I love this colour, hopefully it will out all the purple!

Relyn said...

As usual, you find the most delicious images to share. The best thing I'll be wearing this spring is open toed shoes. My feet are longing for it.

msee said...

i'm trying to find a nice mimosa cardigan but it's so hard to find blarg!
