Daily outfit 1/7/2013

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!

DSCF8505This 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?


  1. I LOVE yellow. I recently bought some mustard yellow flats with cute little gold heart lockets on them, and have been sneaking them into my work wardrobe.

    Hey, could you do a post on how to wear a brown skirt? A coworker told me I CANNOT wear a brown skirt with black tights but I’m not so sure. Shoot me a message if you want to see the skirt in question.

    • Those shoes sound totally adorable!

      I could definitely put together a post about how to wear a brown skirt. I think you can get away with pairing it with black tights, but there are a couple of tricks to it.
