Yellow. It’s a mood-boosting colour. Cheery yellow flowers, runny egg yolks and a sunshine-coloured new dress – they all make me happy.
As soon as I spotted this dress by Marks and Spencer I knew it was for me. It’s just the right shade of yellow – not too bright, not too mustardy. It’s perfect.
It also feels really rather nice on – light, floaty and gratifyingly figure-skimming. Which is just what you need for those spring days when you’re starting to emerge from your safe cocoon of winter layers. It’s also made of that seventies cheesecloth fabric which I love because it doesn’t crease.
My shoes are also by Marks and Spencer. Lilac is one of the colours of the year, and they make sure the dress feels very 2018.
Can a dress make you happy? Well, this one certainly has that effect on me. Maybe it’s the holidays vibes, or the fancy sleeves. Whatever it is, it works.
