Bumblebees

...and Taxi Cabs.
That's what I used to associate with yellow and black.
But as the years go by, I love the combination more and more.
Fell for the graphic print and floppy cowl neck of this blouse.


Blouse - Mac & Jac
Belt & High Waist Trousers - H&M
Favourite Yellow Shoes - Vintage Escada

Gold Link Necklace turned Bracelet - Ralph Lauren
Bangle with 'S' Charm - Danielle Stevens
Watch - Michael Kors
Earrings - Century 21 NY


...yes, that's a tree stump...it took a lot of persuasion (and help) to get me up there!









I was much more comfortable sitting atop this picnic table :)

Hope you're having a fabulous and sunny week!

  38. Gorgoues look! I love the top and the shoes! I can't really pull off yellow but I adore the black yellow combo as well. I think as long as you're not wearing it in stripes, the bee association won't hold ;-)

    Oh, and I keep meaning to thank you for your kind mention in the post where you accepted the award! I don't want you to think I ignored it :) I just keep forgetting to tell you!

    ReplyDelete
  39. thank you for your sweet, sweet comments (:

  40. I have to admit, I often associate the colour combination with bumblebees and taxi cabs. :P But you look great :) I adore your shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh I love those colors on you- and you look like neither a bee nor a cab- you look tres elegant- a modern Katherine Hepburn. I love you on that tree stump too- but it does look difficult to scoot up on- well done!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yellow and black are such a chic combo! Love that shot of you perched on the stump!

    P.S. WhatIWore did a bumblebee post recently (yesterday I think)...must be something in the blogosphere!
