Confession, dear readers – while I said there wouldn’t be any new pieces making an appearance around here for the next little while – at least not until my hubby finds a new job! – I once again have exactly that to show you!! 😜
In my defense, however, this midi wrap skirt came home with me before we got the news that Robin had been laid off. And can you honestly blame me for not wanting to leave it on the rack?? It ticks so many of the right boxes with that ruffled hemline, pretty “ditsy” floral pattern, and that cheery colour…hellooo yellow!! Pretty much everything of-the-moment for Summer 2018 wrapped up (teehee!) in one package, don’t you agree?!
I’ve heard some online grumbling that this sunniest of hues can be a challenging one to wear; but as is so often the case, I think you just need to find a take on the trend that works for you. I’m personally loving the combination of a bright yellow and an equally bright pink together, which is a happy coincidence considering the current colour of my hair…although it’s mostly “undercover” today thanks to my wide-brimmed flat-top fedora. Let me tell you – hats are a non-negotiable when you’re spending the afternoon riding around in a convertible!!
So yeah – even though I’m dabbling in a bit of colour, I’m obviously not a girl who’s going to leave her go-to black behind either!! I purposely went against the grain by styling my über-feminine ruffled yellow skirt with a bunch of tougher pieces to temper all that sweetness. My cut-out booties will be getting a whole lot of street time now that some genuinely warm weather has finally taken hold in Vancouver. And this skull-motive tee?? Well, it probably doesn’t get much edgier than that, does it?? Rock on, summer!! 😎
