From Black to Bright


At one point I thought black was the best color in the world, for clothes anyway.  Top to bottom black was, after all, what all of the cool kids were wearing in high school!  More times than once, I was sent back to my room to put on something with a bit more color.  I grew out of wanting to only wear black, but that hasn’t stopped me from buying way too much of it.  Why are all of the tops I like in the stores always black?  (Or grey or brown, really.  Better question, why do I always go for the drab looking colors to stock my wardrobe with?)

After recently coming to realize that I have too dull a wardrobe, color wise, I am looking on the bright side.  And how much brighter can you get than yellow?  I am really taking a liking to this vibrant color lately.  Yellow is my new black!  I probably won’t get rid of black completely, but yellow sure brightens up a day more than a black top and drab grey.

Now, come on spring, I am getting tired of being cold and seeing nothing but dull sticks.  I am ready for more color!  However, the yellow forsythia flowers are a nice start.

  1. love the combination of yellow and black!

    1. I like the way it looks together, too! Even if it slightly resembles a bumble bee. 😉

  2. I love the colours here; you’ve now inspired me to wear something that isn’t grey, black or navy blue.

    1. I am glad that I have inspired you! I can’t help but feel a little out of my comfort zone when wearing something so bright, but it is a good feeling. Yellow and red both go well with grey, black, and navy. 😉

  3. Oooh very pretty, that dress is gorgeous (love the yellow) and I love how you styled it!

  4. Ooh. I’ve never seen a pleated skirt that’s high low as well. Very neat – I like the colour as well.
    I’m glad to see you’re opening up to new colours 🙂 You should try some corals next!

    1. This is my first hi-lo dress and I really like it! I love the pleats. Thanks for the suggestion. Coral is a pretty color, more so than pink, I think. 🙂

Don't leave yet! Tell me what you think.
