OOTD: Minty Skirt and Matchstick Necklace !

4 years ago

This year I have truly surprised myself by how much I have incorporated color into my wardrobe. Over the past years, I went from being someone who mainly wore black to someone who rarely wears black. I guess after hearing for many years that wearing too much black is bad for your health, I decided to break up with my love affair to black clothing. Don`t get me wrong, I still wear black, but not as much as I used to, which is actually a good thing, because black clothing requires high maintenance.

I had no idea what I was going to throw on yesterday when my sister texted me early morning stating that she was going to stop by my house after her exam with the County (she just graduated with a B.A in Justice studies). It was a pretty warm day yesterday so I knew I had to wear something light and fresh.

The weather where I live is very different from what I am used to. Up until I was 21 years old (when I got married) I lived in Newark. The weather in Newark is cool for the most part and rarely ever goes above 80. For a little over 3 years we lived in San Leandro which has similar weather to Newark but last Summer we moved to Pittsburg which is really warm! I wouldn`t be complaining if my house had an A.C! But since I live in an older home (built in the 50`s) the owners (we rent) didn`t add an A.C. So during warm days, I have to have all my window treatments closed and not let any light in ( I feel like a bat) so it can stay fresh and cool.

The first thing I saw in my closet that stood out to me was my minty turquoise blue bodycon skirt. I quickly put that on after I stepped out of the shower, and but on some random tank top and loose light cardigan on top. I always heard that you should always wear something loose on top when wearing something a little bit more snug for bottoms if you want to prevent looking like you work on the corner.

What I am wearing:
Minty (the tag said mint) tourquise skirt- Forever 21
Taupe nude cami - Sears
Taupe nude batwing cardigan- Cotton On
Nude sandals- Cotton On
Nude and gold cuff bracelet - Target (but purchased on eBay)
Goldtone tassel matchstick and chain necklace- Charlotte Russe

On my nails....Sand Tropez (Essie) & Strobe Lights (Sally Hansen)
On my toes....24/7 (Sinful Colors)

Do you like wearing color?
