why i do what I do.....

I am now Fashion Director at Glamour magazine but following on from the success of my weekly column in the Sunday Times Style magazine I thought I would bring this page to life every week and also give you the chance to comment. This page is not for me to dictate what you should be wearing but to offer ideas on how to put wearable outfits together. Its not what you wear it's how you wear it!

Desperately Seeking Yellow.....

Battle of the Looks!
so this week its a battle of the yellow outfits! which of the two looks do you prefer?! comment below, tweet me @nataliehartley or facebook me your favourite outfit and will pick someone at random to win the head scarf am wearing in the post. Then send me a picture of how you wear it and will post the winners look on the blog....simple!

TIP...yellow can come in all shades from mustard to pastel I have mixed them all up in this outfit and broken up the shades with animal print the headscarf is the perfect finish for a bad hair day! Play with colour in your trainers too the high tops give the outfit a more modern twist

trainers by marc by marc jacobs http://www.marcjacobs.com
headscarf by karen millen http://www.karenmillen.com
sunglasses by prism http://www.prismlondon.com

TIP...make a silk dress more casual and layer a crop t-shirt over it and a simple biker jacket the boots are fab and a perfect summer flat great with everything but good for dresses to give the outfit an edge keep the tones neutral throughout with the more pastel yellow shades
