if the sun doesn't shine - wear it!


it's been ages since our last outfit post. today i wore my yellow corduroy skirt for the first time and took a few self timer shots. the yellow is just gorgeous, it reminds me of the warm summer sun i can't wait to see and feel very soon. i still didn't feel like wearing beach colors, i'll save that for in a few weeks! the entire outfit head to toe only cost me about $25.


here are the details:

•  yellow corduroy skirt  (J.Crew, less than $5 at goodwill) 
•  black sweater  (got it at a clothes swap party) 
•  brown shirt  (was 70% off at Kohl's) 
•  yellow wood bead necklace  (also a clearance item at Kohl's) 
•  black earrings  (about $5 at H&M) 
•  brown knit tights (i found them in the kids' department)
•  black shoes  (yard sale find, $2)


this picture also shows my highlights on the top of my head too. i got bored with my plain natural hair color. somehow i feel like experimenting this summer and trying out more of a blonde look. now that my hair is short i should try it, don't you think? if it doesn't look right i can always cut it shorter :)

thanks for visiting, and have a great day!

It's a beautiful outfit Simona, but then you are beautiful no matter what you wear! :) I love the blond in your hair, it looks very natural! I wish I could add blond to my hair,but it's too dark.
I just read that coral is going to be the summer color! Not a great color on me, but I bet would look great on you.
