Bumble-Bee Magic in Dressing πŸπŸπŸπŸ™ŒπŸ₯°πŸ˜‰

All That’s Gold!!

I rarely follow trends.

When I do follow trends I notice they tend to be in the area of colour.

In an earlier post I talked about my experience with millennial pink and that although it’s a pretty colour, it’s not a good colour for me, see https://donnadoesdresses.com/2019/04/17/a-millenial-pink-dress-and-me/

I have found that this yellow is a colour that not only lifts my spirits, but also my complexion – and I need all the help with that I can get!!

I haven’t worn yellow for many decades, preferring jewel colours to bring out my red hair and and fair skin.

The outfit shown here is a yellow skivvy and long cardigan with a tie and a knit scarf which I paired with my old pleather/ponte pants and suede booties.

Less Is More!!

Recently, the news abounds about the fragile state of our beautiful planet and one of the main issues is the excessive amount of textiles from “fast fashion”.

This has led me to think very carefully about my clothing purchases and attempting to ensure that I actually get plenty of wear out of most of my things.

So many of the outfits I feature on this blog, and my instagram, have been in my wardrobe for a very long time – in fact these pants and booties I’ve had for 4 or 5 years and they’re a style that still work and they are in excellent condition, so why get more??

Winter Warmth and Cosiness!!

We are pretty lucky on the south east coast of Australia with the beautiful mild climate we have.

It can get pretty hot in summer, although the nice sea breeze of the South Pacific Ocean helps to offset too much hideousness, and the winters are mostly sunny with only a few days under 10Β°C, so this sort of outfit is certainly very suitable.

The cardigan has a nice weight so that it drops and drapes nicely and the large collar frames the face beautifully when it is tied back.

When the belt is tied at the front, it gives a flattering v-neck.

Even though I went for a classic bumble bee look, this beautiful oomphy colour would be great with denim or clash stunningly with purple.

Anyone For Colour In Winter??

So I think it’s clear what my thoughts are about wearing colour in winter – I wonder what your thoughts are about it?
