My love affair with a yellow dress intensified dramatically with the appearance of not one, but two Royal Duchesses in bright lemon..
I loved both these looks.
The wearing of yellow divides the masses - many hate it, and/or feel they cannot wear it. It seems to depend on the particular shade, and I love my yellows bright and sunny. A brownish gold mustard leaves me looking sallow.
Do you like or wear yellow?
In other royal news, Prince Louis looked adorable, full of smiles on his Christening Day.
I liked the way Duchess Catherine has continued her own tradition of dressing in cream to match the Royal Christening robe. A new style of hat too. I thought she looked lovely.
Meghan has quickly developed her own chic look, here in an unusual olive green. Now that is a colour I definitely cannot wear...
I was definitely taken with her navy Audrey Hepburn look for the Centenary of the Royal Navy, especially the flirty hat. She has the Princess look already.
For those not completely over our trip to Eastern Europe, This is the Elbe from Konigstein Fortress, in an area known as Saxon Switzerland for its stunning peaks and scenery.
German Romantic artists including Casper David Friedrich were inspired by these mountains. We enjoyed their painting at the Albertinum in Dresden:
|Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) The Cross in the Mountains (The Tetschen Altarpiece) 1807/08|
|Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) Dolmen under Snow c. 1807|
|Carl Gustav Carus (1789-1869) Memory of a Wooded Island in the Baltic Sea (Oak trees by the Sea)|
|Carl Gustav Carus (1789-1869) Woman on the Balcony 1824|
|Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) Two Men Contemplating the Moon 1819/20|
While we were travelling, sometime in the middle of June, Blogger stopped sending me notifications when comments were made on the blog. It took a while before I noticed this because we were so busy with the tour there was no time to download photos or read or write blogs.
Apologies to those readers who left comments on earlier posts and which received no response or reply. I have only read them yesterday!
After I returned home, I began trying to fix the problem via the Blogger Help Page. That is a weird nightmare place if ever there was one...
I put in my little help request, and discovered hundreds of people were having the same issues. Blogger sent an unintelligible explanation how to fix it. Over about a week I then received lots of other people's suggestions none of which I could manage to do. Then I was saved by a post by a freelance Blogger tech support technician, who posted simple instructions on the Help Page which worked immediately, and began to send me the comments.
If any of you are having this problem, if you mention it in a comment I will try to help you as I was helped.
