Yellow is a colour that I don’t often wear. While I think it’s a really cute shade, it has a tendency to make me look washed out and sickly.
When I noticed this skirt, I was instantly drawn to the print. However I debated whether or not to get it because it’s yellow. After a lot of consideration, I just went for it because I figured that if the yellow tones weren’t next to my face, it just might work.
I’m happy with my decision.
I am wearing:
– Black wool jumper from Target
– Silver celtic knot brooch (birthday gift from Ross’s parents)
– Yellow printed wrap skirt from The Dookie Emporium
– Brown boots (thrifted)
– Black herringbone tights from K Mart
– Gold rock ring from ASOS
– Owl ring from Diva
– Amethyst ring
– Brown resin ring from the Violet Town Op Shop.
I was also mildly put off when I saw that this skirt is a Large. But then I reasoned with myself that it’s a wrap skirt so it doesn’t matter if it’s a little bit. Once again I was right. You can tell how much I love this skirt by the time I spent talking myself into getting it.
I got this gorgeous brooch as a birthday gift from Ross’s parents. It’s a Celtic knot design, which symbolises eternity. I unwrapped it at my birthday party and was delighted because it was the perfect thing to finish off my costume. It was meant to be!
This is a good winter skirt because it’s long and perfect for layering over boots and tights. The material isn’t so heavy that it will be too hot for summer, so I think it’s going to work double time in my wardrobe.
Have you ever talked yourself into buying something that you thought wasn’t quite right? How did it turn out?
