Colour Me Friday: #Colour Me March

The lovely people at the etail PR Blogger Network are holding a completion to win a pair of tickets to Cheltenham Races Ladies Day on 11th March – and given that the competition is called #ColourMeMarch, what could be better than for this week’s Colour Me Friday to be my competition entry, and at the same time provide a little colour inspiration! The look is inspired by the Lana Del Rey song “off to the Races”. Here goes, wish me luck!

Great – but how do I, as a normal human (brunette), wear yellow? I tend to avoid it like the plague because it -well – makes me look like I have the plague. OK, not the plague, but as I have olive skin I’ve always thought it would make me look sallow and sickly. Well, following my triumph with one of my new year’s resolutions last year – “try yellow eyeshadow” (for which I can heartily recommend Clarins Sunny Yellow) – the key for me will be to avoid what I would describe as “1980s C&A pale pastel lemon” (memories of a bargain sale oversized-and-not-in-a-good-way pale lemon blouson ski jacket still haunt me).
