Marigold Hope

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! Spring is officially here, and I’m loving the sunshine and longer nights. Even though losing sleep from daylight saving’s time is no fun, a night owl like me sure does appreciate the extra hours of evening light.

Spring reminds me of hope, and right now a friend of mine needs a good dose of that. His name is Rob, and he just had surgery to remove pancreatic cancer. Though the odds may be against him, God is always in his favor. I believe in the Lord’s healing power, and I’m asking for agreement in prayer over Rob’s body and spirit. Please also keep his wife and three daughters in your prayers.

Thank you lovely ones. Together we can #WAGEHOPE!

Today’s collages are all about Marigold. I know a lot of people refer to this color as mustard yellow, but to be honest, I hate the name “mustard” (it’s also a topping I don’t like the taste of lol). I feel like marigold is a much prettier name, so that’s what I’m going to call it from here on out.

I know a lot of people shy away from yellow because they think it won’t be flattering, but that’s just not true. A golden yellow looks great on almost every skin tone and hair color.

The only exception would be for those who have lighter blonde hair or a red undertone to their skin. But there’s a solution for this! A pale or subtle yellow print (pictured top left) is perfect because it will not compete with skin tone or hair color.

Marigold is bright and cheerful, which is why it’s perfect for spring. Since marigold is a pop of color, you don’t need to go overboard on accessories. A simple blouse like those pictured above–or even a sundress–is perfect for a casual Friday or dinner with friends.

When it comes to pants, shoes, or other accessories, plum, navy, or black will ground this color perfectly. And if you really want to go bold, try pairing ruby heels with your marigold blouse or dress.

I would also suggest keeping your makeup simple, since yellow tends to brighten skin. A light pink or cherry lip color looks pretty and polished when paired with golden hues.

 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. (1 Peter 1:6-7 NIV)

  1. I never thought to call it marigold, but I must say I like it better than calling it mustard! I just bought a pair of marigold leggings that I just adore. 🙂 Also, I will pray for Rob.
