Bold Citrus Colours in Dressing! πŸ₯°πŸŒžπŸŒ»πŸ™Œ

September 14, 2019

Citrus Top and Bottom!!

Neon colours are a bit of a current trend for those of us heading into Spring.

As you may, or may not know, colour is a bit of a thing of mine.

This beautiful, bright colour just feels like pure joy.

The colour combination also reminds me of a bumble bee, and as we are setting our intention to getting our bee and honey business started, it’s very apt at this time!! 🐝

I’ve had this skirt, like so many of my things, for many years, and usually pair it with black on top.

Today I wore the skirt with this citrus cardigan just tucked into the skirt and buttoned down the front.

It’s remarkable how much the injection of colour changed the look of this simple skirt…

Sunny Days and Sorbet Colours!! 🍦

Brightness and brilliance makes for a fun time on a delightful spring day, so this colour was perfect for a day of buzzing around and getting things done.

I’m a matchy-matchy person – something to do with being a bit on the spectrum – so I was thrilled to find these sorbet/citrus shoes and also sweet little nylon scarf for around my head.

I like these scarves around my head as they keep my hair off my face, inject more colour, oomph and a nice retro vibe to the outfit!

And It Has Pockets… πŸ™Œ

Apart from the fabulously fun graphic print, I’m also in love with the pockets and small, flattering pleats in this skirt, and the length makes it ideal for the warmer months!

Thank you so much for joining me in my little corner of the web – you can also see my daily dressing on Instagram donnadoesdresses and I’d love to hear your thoughts on bright coloured dressing, cute skirts and the like in the comments below or leave a like or follow!!

    Wow! That is a great color on you (as I am coming to realize all bright colors look really good on you! ). I do like how you matched the headband/scarf and the shoes to the outfit! Hope you bee and honey business go well. We like to buy local honey in our area!

      Thank you so much dear Mireille – I do favour strong colours and I’m not sure if it’s because I feel confident in them that they seem to suit or what the reason is!! Yes, I am making huge changes in my life and the bee and honey business is a very exciting prospect – hopefully, we get a swarm soon and support from the local community also!! Thank you for your comment!
