It was all Yellow

One of my favourite things in life that just gives me a boost and makes me feel like bouncing around is wearing my yellow dress.

Yellow is one of those colours that make you feel good instantly!
 Like the sun, daffodils and sunflowers, they just seem to make me beam inside. 

My whole house is virtually yellow!  As my friend Dee from cotterandjewellinteriors.com.au/ pointed out to me I have so much yellow in my life!

This dress I wore to work last week is an old Cue dress.  The shape is classic with the peplum that is now very in, but it does help take focus from my thighs and accentuate my waist. 
This shape would work on lots of body types because of the structure and its built in shape.

Does anyone have a yellow obsession?

One Dress four looks

Coming up with what to wear every day can be a chore! 
However it can also be fun if we have the right pieces.
If we have the pieces we need to make every outfit a winner, we can create many outfits from a few key items.

Sometimes this is a challenge as we only have in our wardrobes what we have. So we have to put our creative hats on and come up with new ways of putting it together.

My friend, boss and inspiration Wendy Mak (Owner www.smittenwithstyle.com) who I do styling for, has just written a book The terrific thirtywww.theterrificthirty.com.au.
It is all about the thirty pieces we need to have to put together over a thousand outfits for every occassion.

Changed shoes and bag for a more casual look.

The terrific thirty is a wonderful check list just to help you get your wardrobe organised and then you will be finding new ways to wear these pieces.  Great Christmas present idea I will be getting a few.

My Outfit pic today has been inspired by some of Wendy's ideas in the book.

This is a dress that is a lovely shape.  I have dressed it up for a special lunch, down to wear to work with slightly more comfortable shoes and then added a top and belt, changed accessories and totally changed the look. Then added trench vest to give deception of a different outfit.
