gold and grey

Not going to lie, I'm kind of loving my outfit today... it has made an otherwise crappy morning a bit brighter!

As an owner of "child-bearing hips" (gross, aaackkk) that are nearly 11 inches larger than my waistline, I love, love, love full high-waisted skirts like this one from J.Crew a couple of Springs ago!  

I've had some questions recently about blonds wearing yellow... Yellow is my very favorite color, and I think it looks fabulous on blonds so long as you stick to more marigold and golden yellow hues!  A hint of a tan (totally digging this self-tanner right now) doesn't hurt either!

  1. You look amazing, love that shell blouse! And I rock high waisted skirts all day long.

  2. Which self tanner? (Have I missed it from a different post?)

    Lowlights rock, BTW

  3. The self-tanner is Jergens Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer. If you click the link attached to "this self-tanner," it'll give you all the details.

  4. Love the Jergens Daily glow.... love them... I'm scared to wear yellow, but maybe I'll have to try marigold... I'm just such a pale blonde, I'm afraid it will wash me out!

  5. Love your outfit! I have a J.Crew blouse in that exact color, just different ruffles, and I love how it works with that cardi! I might have to copy that look.

  6. I was eying that sunless tanner in CVS the other day, but chickened out. I'm terrible at applying any sunless tanner well.

  7. Cute outfit! I feel your pain on the hips... I wear a ton of high waisted, a-line skirts. And also, those silk blouses from J. Crew are my best friend!

  8. Omg I am wearing that skirt today in yellow!

  9. I love it. Very flattering color and shape on you. Girl, I'm the one with the baby birthin' hips.

  10. Sometimes I think my nickname should be "birthing hips"...I so know where you're coming from, and I love accenting my waist line.

    Adorable outfit!

  11. Your outfit today is pretty much fabulous. I love a good burnt orange color, ohhh yes oh yes oh yes I do. It looks perfect with your hair and skin!

  12. I think your outfit is ADORABLE! love! And there is nothing wrong with "child birthing" hips! I have hips that are 13" bigger than my waist and love being curvy! Embrace it - I would take that over straight up and down any day :)
