Today, one of my coworkers told me, "I love when you wear yellow. It makes me feel happy."
- Blouse - Kate Spade, thrifted; first worn here in April with neon tweed
- Skirt - Kersh; purchased here for $19.99
- Shoes - Big Presence Desmond, Fluevog; last seen here (3rd outfit) in April with a striped dress for Ali's birthday
- Jacket (below) - Simon Chang, vintage 80s, thrifted; last worn here in March as outerwear over another peplum
First wearing of this skirt and it was great.
|The thing on my chest is a green ribbon for Mental Health Month.|
It didn't ride up, the thick almost-neoprene fabric didn't wrinkle or crease and the pattern is fun.
I also like this longer length, particularly with a bit of a heel.
I only wore the jacket for walking to and from work, but it looks good with the skirt, doesn't it?
- Filigree cuff - St. Paul's Cathedral gift shop, London
- Dragon bangle - Lazy Susan's
- Plain bangle - local
- Silver/aventurine ring - consignment
I love it when you wear yellow, too - it really suits you!ReplyDelete
Boo to the flaky bangle but hooray to the possibility of finding a replacement. The other day a trader was selling a pile of formerly tarnished bangles she'd painted with enamel paint, they looked really pretty. I might try that with nail polish next time! x
Thank you, Vix! Yes, I'll be looking for a new one on my travels - I like silver and steel, as they last far longer than these cheap plated nickel on copper things. I can't be bothered to go to that much work - painting with nail polish does sound fun, though.Delete
Your colleague is right, and it made me feel happy too! And I'm glad to say that I was right about the skirt. It looks even better on. Never mind about the mismatching, and I really cannot see the Christmassy vibe, so that's alright! What a shame about the flaking bangle though. I hate it when that happens. xxxReplyDelete
Thank you, Ann! I know, these little things don't matter (but I see them!). I can't abide cheap quality - I hate when things fall apart. Gah. Ah well, it just means I can buy a new (hopefully new-to-me) one!Delete
Love the sunny yellow. Happy vibes here. Love it with the jacket. We can't be silent about mental health issues.. they are on the rise..ReplyDelete
Thank you, Elle! No, I agree - although maybe it's just that they seem more prevalent because we talk about them more?Delete
I'd be happy to see you at work with yellow on too! My male colleague had a shirt on in this shade yesterday and I was so glad to see him! Loving the quirky Fluevog heels!ReplyDelete
Nice! You don't see men in brights too often, so good for him! Thank you, Kezzie!Delete
Yellow makes me happy too - I'm trying to acquire more of it for my wardrobe! :) Hopefully your co-worker will try wearing some yellow themeselves! :) It is such a cheerful shade and I like seeing others wear it too. Shame about your bangle though!ReplyDelete
It can be tricky - I can see you with yellow shoes! I don't think he would wear it, but it feels good that other people can get pleasure just from seeing what I wear. Eh, I'll find another, some day!Delete
There you go -- spreading sunshine again!ReplyDelete
Ha! That's what I do! Thanks, Ally!Delete
Yes, this bright outfit made me smile, all fits SO WELL Sheila. The skirt I want to touch!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Lorena! The skirt fabric is not that special - it's a thick polyester knit, not quite neoprene squishy, but in that family.Delete
Bright colours have the power to brighten someone's day(including our own), don't they! Such a nice compliment from your coworker. Love the Fluevogs and I'd love to see a picture of your whole collection one day. XReplyDelete
They really do, Jess! Ooh, maybe one day I will do that! The world needs to see all my Fluevogs!Delete
Hurrah for yellow!, it makes happy all of us!, mwhaha, and you look fab wearing it!ReplyDelete
I do love your top and shoes, different shades but harmonic, and your jacket, but the skirt is the star of the show!, it's a stunning piece!
Aw, thank you, Monica! I totally agree about yellow!Delete
It seems to make a whole bunch of us happy to see you wear yellow. I haven't found a shade that I can wear, yet, so it's up to you to do it for me ;) This is a wonderfully cheerful, flattering outfit. I wasn't all that keen on the skirt when I saw the photo of it when you bought it, but it works great in this outfit.ReplyDelete
I guess so! Ha! Thanks, Shelley - I don't love-love the skirt, but we'll see how it goes over time.Delete
Oooo la la, how very chic one is today! Love, love, love the new skirt, plus that mis-matching citrus is great ploy, bravo my fashionista friend xReplyDelete
Takes one to know one, Anna! Thank you so much!Delete
