Yellow + Cobalt Blue

I was invited to the 18th birthday celebration of my EnLit(English/Literature) blockmate and friend, Shawntel. On birthday parties, I avoid dark colors as much as possible. I am one to believe that birthdays are happy occasions and must be celebrated with bright colors to bring out the happy vibes. As I have noticed, a lot of people today choose to wear what seems to be party clothes for me, taking into consideration the usual “after-party” where alcoholic drinks are available and dancing all night is the thing. Even with this on mind, the little kid inside me still urges me to wear something bright and colorful, which I associate with happiness. Nevertheless, black/white will always be the color of sophistication. For me, however, there are more occasions in which I can look sophisticated. On birthday celebrations, I’d like to bring out my inner kid party vibes where twirling my skirt is the aha-moment.

I’ve been checking out good color combinations lately and I honestly fell in love with the bright yellow + cobalt blue combination. This is the kind of combination that I consider ‘happy’ because it reminds me of a lot of things (i.e. summer, sunflowers, sun, beach etc)’.

I’ve been avoiding midi skirts all my life because of the idea that they will make me look old. Fashion indeed is unpredictable. The midi skirts I’ve been avoiding are now an essential part of my closet. This denim midi skirt is a gift from my aunt a couple of years ago. It has always been in my closet and I never bothered to look for anything that will probably go well with it. It never crossed my mind that one day it’ll be a keeper, much more that it’s actually denim and can easily be played around with. There is also a cute floral detail on one of its sides that adds a feminine vibe to the dark denim color. Hope you like it. 💕
