Neon Yellow

Two years ago I would have grimaced at the thought of adding this colour to my wardrobe, after years of listening to the old wives tales about what colours you can or can’t wear I just assumed no one could wear yellow. Since throwing out the nonsense tales of what I can and cannot wear I decided I would wear whatever I wanted, including this colour. Why the sudden love of neon? Who knows.

Maybe this colour has come back in a way I had never seen before, maybe it’s the right shade that does it for me. I picked up this dress a couple years ago with the plan of wearing it on holiday in Cuba. Unfortunately it did not make it out of the suitcase due to it being a thicker fabric – not suitable for such warm temperatures! But for spring with a little blazer, it’s just the right amount of warmth.

It’s also nice to be able to wear some of my brighter statement jewellery that I snatched up on eBay. The earrings have been redesigned so they are less bulky than the original set.

 

Blackbirds

Blackbird Dress This morning was one of those rotten moments when you are upset with yourself, your body isn’t right and none of your clothing seems to fit the way you envision it. Being a visual girl, its exceptionally frustrating when I can see the look I want, but am unable to achieve it either because of the way it is fitting or maybe I’m missing one key accessory or clothing to work with the outfit. After several “failed” outfits I grabbed this beautiful dress out of the closet because I knew it was comfortable and easy to match due to its limited colour palette.

Not as vibrant as I like to be normally but based on the rough morning I was having I thought this was the safest bet. This is the first time I’ve worn the dress too! Paired with a black cardigan and matching tan belt, the look came together quite easy. The only downfall I experienced was the length of the dress due to my long body. Unfortunately I’ve been noticing an issue with things being too short more and more recently. Lucky for me, I am somewhat skilled with a sewing machine, needle and thread so I can adjust items as I see fit.

Next time I wear this outfit you’ll see the most recent adjustments I have made to make it longer!
