Election Fever Part Three: Mellow Yellow


I would never have found this outfit if I hadn't been doing this Election Special week so I have something to thank the Liberal Democrats for.
I found the t-shirt in my daughter's wardrobe.
I love this shade of yellow - it's not quite lemon but it is not the bright sunshine yellow I usually think of.
Instead its a kind of mellow yellow.
And mellow is the word I would use to describe the Liberal Democrats especially when you contrast them to the harsher shades of red and blue otherwise known as Labour and Conservative.
If the vote was simply down to colour then Nick Clegg would get my vote.
He'd also get my vote for the best looking prospective Prime Minister.
But I'm not that shallow.
There are more important things to worry about like jobs, education, the health service and defence as in how will I defend myself when my daughter finds out I have been raiding her wardrobe?

Today I wore:

Shoes - Clarks
Skirt - Tesco
T-shirt - my daughter's

  1. Ha - so funny about when your daughter finds out you're raiding her wardrobe! Love the skirt & top together - although I think blue still has my vote (color wise since I know nothing about British politics).

  2. :)! I've only recently discovered the joys of 'borrowing' from a child's wardrobe. My 11- year old son and I are now more or less the same size (top half) - so all the stuff he doesn't like wearing comes to my already-overflowing wardrobe. It's probably just as well I don't fit into his pairs of jeans!

  3. Wow, I love this look! I generally don't like t-shirts, but that one is so fancy and lovely and you've styled it so well that I may have to copy you! Also the color is radiant with your hair!

  6. Then let ME be shallow, Jane, as I'm not allowed to vote anyway. Nick is gorgeous and I even like what he says, when I'm not too confused by his gorgeous posh accent, of course! Like the outfit, Jane. Ciao. A.

  7. This is cute.... gray and that shade of mellow yellow match perfectly.
    You have just reminded me of the fights I use to have with my mom taking stuff from my closet....
