Last night I sent E. a challenge, so she in turned challenged me. To wear yellow. No problem, I thought, until I went to my closet. I realized that I have a ton of yellow accessories (belt, shoes, earrings I made, my grandmother’s necklace, scarves, etc etc) but no yellow garments. There is a reason for that: It’s a color I really like but I just fear putting in large quantities next to my skin. I fear it bringing out yellow undertones in my olive complexion, making me look jaundice-y and sickly.
(I do have a shimmery gold top that I even considered wearing out of desperation for a moment, but I really just couldn’t bring myself to walk into my advisor’s office at noon today for our meeting looking like I belonged at a nightclub with a cocktail in my hand. Even “toning it down” with jeans still seemed to be pushing it.)
So instead I’m wearing this skirt that has quite a bit of yellow in the print:
And I added the yellow shoes in hopes of bringing out the yellow in the print. But looking at this, I realize that I somehow managed to make an outfit that’s supposed to be predominantly yellow quite red. So to distract you – hey! Check out my cool button pendant from Brookberrys on Etsy! Look! Isn’t it cool how it’s a button?
(see, you forgot about the yellow already, didn’t you?) S.
