Outfit: Black & Yellow

Slowly like the sun as it peeks softly through the clouds after a long, hard rain, I'm beginning to see the world in brighter colors. And so it is that my wardrobe would change and evolve to reflect my disposition. I'm quite fond of this midi length lace skirt. I found it while thrift shopping during my stay in Japan. The shop soon became my favorite and I returned to it on multiple occasions. From time to time, I catch myself smiling at its warm yellow flowers, recalling nostalgic feelings of past memories. It's beginning to show signs of wear and tear. I'm not yet ready to let go of it, so most likely I won't wear as often. It's a pity. Yellow in any shade is my favorite color to wear and it goes well with this blouse.

 I've been told countless times to avoid blouses with a high collar, like this button-up, because it would accentuate the roundness of my face. Knowing that, I still developed a deep attachment towards this type of garment. I will just have to suffer an ungainly appearance for something I love. I won't wear a turtleneck, however. It makes me uncomfortable like my neck is being squeezed and I really can't bear that feeling.

P.S. In the midst of an excessive heatwave, I am currently battling a cold. Ah, such is life. Happy Friday to all!

What I wore:
Blouse: H&M
Skirt: vintage thrifted in Japan
Sandals: Seychelles via Ross



  1. this blouse really fits great with the skirt. lovely outfit :)

  2. I am SO with you on turtlenecks, they are just not for me and I feel totally claustrophobic in them. You look lovely though dear, and that skirt is gorgeous! Great shots!
