Mellow Yellow | Bold Spring Work Look

Artisan Gold Pippa Dress, Alie Street | Fake Fabulous

I love a burst of bold colour, and where better to wear it than at work?!
Workwear can often be so dull and boring.
Black, navy, grey... Zzzzzz.

Injecting some colour is fun and much easier during the warmer months.
Colours seem much more acceptable in the sunshine.

Also, there is something about a smart but colourful look that says "Confident and in Control"
...Even if you're not!
(I love a confidence cheat.)


Artisan Gold Pippa Dress, Alie Street | Workwear |Fake Fabulous

I'm wearing a dress from probably my favourite 'dress' brand... Alie Street.
If you've never tried any of their pieces, have a wee look at the way I've styled them HERE and check out their site HERE!
The fit and quality are fab.

And, before you ask, I'm not sponsored by them (I wish I was) I just love the dresses!

{I'm lucky that they kindly gifted this dress to me but I would happily buy from them anyway.}

As usual, I'm keeping things as simple as possible (what's the point in over-fussing when it comes to workwear?) 

A dress, smart bag and classic sandals.
Simple.

Are you adding MORE colour to your summer work wardrobe?
What colours do you love to wear?

  3. Love the addition of the brown accessories. I have a dress in a similar colour and was only musing today about what colour shoes and bag to use.

    1. I like the brown with mustard, but some might say it's a bit too warm and 1970's?!
      I'd love to see what you come up with Gail... I liked silver too :o)

  4. Such a chic look - the combination of brown leather bag and shoes and mustardy yellow dress - love! I see in the comment above you're wondering if it's too warm and 70s? I can see where the thought comes from with those colors, but each of the items is so modern in style that it doesn't speak as 70s to me at all.

    1. Thank you Bettye!
      It's funny, I always think "1970's curtains" when I wear mustard... even though I love the colour! Hahahaha.
      Thank you for your thoughts on it, you are always so kind.

    1. Thank you so much!
      Colour gives me confidence... I think it's because other people assume I'm confident because I dare to wear it. However, it's the colour that gives the confidence. I love a bit of bluffing!! :oP

  9. Samantha, what a lovely dress! And I agree with you that color should be injected into work wardrobes. This color is so beautiful on you...I wish I could wear more yellow, but it just doesn’t work on me. And how darling is your necklace! I am loving your sandals as well.

  17. This dress skims your figure SO beautifully and for that reason has a subtle sexiness but it's that pretty and fun multi-colored heart necklace that plays so beautifully with the dress that intrigues me. It's uncomplicated but makes a lovely statement anyway! You're just a genius with accessories Sam. You NEVER just throw on a necklace but rather seem to find jewelry that sets a mood. Those simple little pastel hearts add a sweet charm that REALLY WORKS!!!

    1. You're too kind Judy... but I'll take it (•blushes).
      These dresses are such a nice fit and the patterned versions hide all the things we want to hide very well. :oP

  18. This yellow dress is fabulous! I can't seem to get enough of yellow these days--even though it's really not my color. In fact I have two yellow posts lined up. One is with lots of blue--which I can wear. And the other is with more yellow on the bottom which takes the color away from my fact--because yellow can make me look, well, you know, sick!

    You look great in yellow?! Is it because of your hair color? I wouldn't have guessed with your coloring that it would look so awesome on you, but it does. And you and your figure! Stunning Sam.

    Much love, Annie

    1. Awww Annie.... you're very kind and generous!
      This dress is a great fit but it does 'show the figure' if that makes sense?
      I now work at being in shape but our little baby-bellies never really leave us do they? :oP
      I used to worry about not being 'perfect' but now I kind of like it, probably because looking at perfect people doesn't interest me.
      I'm looking forward to seeing what yellow items you have and how you style them!!
