Mellow in Yellow---Big Fat Summer Challenge

Loving this challenge...

As I previously said, most of the items on the Challenge list are things that I'd wear anyway so I've been challenging myself to reinvent the way I wear them...lots of fun but challenging at the same time.

Apparently yellow was my color du jour this week. :)  Almost had to wear my shades indoors...this crap was bright!

First up:

I've recently discovered ASOS Curve line for us blessedly curved women (2000 years after it debuted lol)...I was a little apprehensive at first (le online ordering of clothes is not usually a good look for me). 

BOY was I pleasantly surprised!

Don't you love how my sandals make my foot look like a cracked pumpernickel bread loaf?  HA!

This shirt was B-R-I-G-H-T! Whooo!  Loved it though.  Sheer yellow poly that came with a belt of the same fabric (hate those things...they're like dental floss for your love handles).  The front is a combo of a cowl/wrap top.  Very pretty in detail but for someone like me who only likes to wear a bra under her blouses you may or may not have a little peep show go on (no big deal...everyone needs a little spice in their life no?).

Top: Asos Curve; Jeans: Baby Phat; Belt: Ashley Stewart; Bag: Louis Vuitton; Bracelets: Lane Bryant/Ashley Stewart; Sandals: Gifted from my dear Mama's trip to Israel

Part II:

Made this skirt 2 years ago...(secret: it's actually a tube hate for strapless devices led me to convert it).  In an ode to my lovely locs and Mr. Marley...I decided to take a "casual" look for a spin (I am NOT  a t-shirt fan---for the 1000th time)---this is definitely not a combo I'd normally wear.

T-shirt: no clue; Skirt: DIY (no pattern, lots of yellow and some elastic); Sandals: gifted from Israel (dear Mamma loves me) Bracelets & rings: Tiffany & Co and gifted from Trinidad; Watch: Emperio Armani

Was going to smooth out my bakery rolls but eh...natural look and all that. :D  

Lots of made by me stuff coming up! Stay tuned.  :)


  1. Yellow is one of my favorite colors. Looks good on you!

    1. Thanks Carmesha! Hopefully I'll get more of it in the wardrobe this summer (I love bright colors but it's the one color I don't have a lot of). :)


  2. Looking good in yellow, is this your wear something you normally wouldnt wear? both of them?

    1. Thanks Jennifer! Technically the yellow top was a out of ordinary experience (I'm wary of ordering online :) ). Wearing a t-shirt voluntarily though...that's something I wouldn't normally wear. I have them and will RARELY wear them(and by rarely I mean every 6 months or so unless I don't want to change to go to the gym) but I thought this was a simple and fun look for the day. :)

  3. Yellow is you! I would L*VE that Bob Marley T-shirt :)

  4. Thanks! I'm sure you can find it online. I may have gotten it from Target believe it or not.
