Double Challenge: Summer Black-Out and Summer Capsule Wardrobe - Day 3

Day 3! In which the 5th and final clothing item is presented: this yellow skirt: Isn't it a glorious colour? And really, this picture does not do it justice - it is an acid, bright yellow. I found it on consignment for $24.99 at Regalia Boutique (shout-out!) - it's a Club Monaco stretch wool weave. I would guess by the style that it's from the 90s.

I was quite proud of myself for not wearing a single neutral today! I wore the same green shirt as Monday, and then once I thought of wearing the scarf as a belt, the blue shoes fell into place.

Ooh, I almost forgot: I'm actually wearing a camisole underneath my shirt (I'm not counting that as cheating, since you can't see it). It is so freaking NOT summer here...grrr...

The stuff: This is also the perfect opportunity to wear my peacock feather earrings for the first time - I've been wanting a pair of these since I saw Kasmira sporting them. I didn't really like my pair, but last night while I was choosing accessories, I decided to trim all the excess feather off the bottoms so that they looked more rounded and not all straggly.

Also wearing my ring from the Louvre again.

Blouse (Esprit), skirt (Club Monaco, consignment), shoes (Feet First), scarf (Dad's, vintage 1960s), ring (the Louvre).


  1. Eee! That yellow skirt is gorgeous~ It's so cute. I love it with the bright blue shoes. You look awesome!

    I can't wait to see what other outfits you come up with. The people doing the double challenge have an interesting week ahead of them. =D

  2. So very pretty.
    Its amazing how many colors you are wearing and how you brought them all together with the scarf and the earrings.
    Wish I could send you some of the hot weather we have here !

  3. The weather here is really dull and grey - your otfit has brightened it all up. I am impressed with your double challenege.

  4. You look so good in that skirt the ring Jan xx

  5. Love the unexpected bright blue from those great pumps.

  6. Aw, you're so much better at the cheating than I am! No one would have known! I should have also tried the not wearing neutral challenge. My outfit today looks pretty monotonous compared to this one!

  7. I love all the colors in this outfit! And those earrings are just gorgeous! I want a pair like this!

  8. That skirt looks perfect on you! Fitted and gorgeous, clearly that's what R must have meant.

  9. That yellow is divine!

    This is one of my favorite color combos from you; it's an eclectic mix but it really works, and I love the peacock feathers and scarf that pull it all together.
