My favourite fashion blog is What Katie Wore and my favourite post is ‘Taken on Day 365‘, where Katie drew upon her endlessly colourful wardrobe and put together seven outfits in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink respectively. Ever since I saw that post, I had wanted to recreate my own version in my favourite colour.
As the Boyfriend said, “That’s not colour-blocking, that’s a colour-block. Just a big fat block.” He’s not wrong.
I feel quite sad for all the years I dressed in dark colours and baggy clothes when I could’ve been dressing like this. Nowadays, nothing makes me feel more like myself than yellow.
My collection is kind of getting out of control. After I put on the dress and necklace, I was looking at myself in the mirror thinking “This dress needs something around my waist. I wish I had a yellow belt… Wait a minute, I have two.”
In addition to all this gear, I have another belt (as mentioned), a pair of sandals, a pair of sneakers, a jacket, three bags, a skirt, a singlet, a pair of tights, a button-up shirt, another nail polish, two jumpers, an umbrella, another dress, and two more necklaces – all in bright, sunshiney yellow. Oh, and a chair. I regret nothing.
