Pantone-Inspired Spring Color Challenge - Lemon Zest

Day three of the Pantone-Inspired Spring Color Challenge hosted by Heidi and Marissa. It's Lemon Zest today! That's right, one of my favourite of favourite of colours to wear!

This colour seems to be in trend here in Australia too, as I'm finding it everywhere! I paired it with my rhinestone embellished black shirt. I love rhinestone collars but I feel they usually look a bit too rebellious on me. I am hardly one to live a rebel lifestyle (at least not yet anyway). Wearing this intensity of yellow with it though I think lessens the it's tough-guy edge somewhat.  I do admit, even with the added colour, this shirt does still bring out a bit of an inner rebel.

Today's rebellious activities I blame on the shirt:

Turning up the volume to max on my headphones

Tinkering with the time on my watch

Drinking my breakfast smoothie straight from the jug!

Refusing to water the plants until midday.

Running amuck with the Autumn leaves

Rebelling against the rebel look with some bow flats.

It was a warmer Autumn day here so I think this passes as a Spring outfit! After today's activities though am a little concerned to pull this out again later in the year.
