I have a thing for yellow. I like the color on tops, bottoms, shoes, bags and even in food! (Lemon square and lemonade are just two of my favorite things.) It just seems like yellow makes everything a little brighter and happier. So, when I spotted this skirt hanging in Forever 21 Megamall, I snatched one up in my size and went bouncing home a happy girl.

The problem came when I had to get out of my head and into real life. The skirt worked well with a black top but I didn't want to mute down the happy color of the skirt and decided to wear it loud and proud. So into the closet I went and pulled out one bright colored top after another and tried it on with the skirt. I almost went with the safe, black top until I saw the corner of this shirt peeking and calling. I put it on and voila! Green and yellow outfit it is. :)

Would you have gone for black for a more polished look? Or paired it with a contrasting color too?

Hugs,
Belated Bloomer

  2. I think you look absolutely fabulous, so it doesn't matter what any of us would do! (I would have wussed out and gone with black, because I'm a scaredy-cat with color issues.) And that belt and shoes...perfect. You are teeny-tiny adorableness.
