Would you believe if I told you that alittle over a year ago my life was colorless? well atleast when it came to fashion. I would only wear dark colors other than red! Oh gosh and yellow as well as white were out of the question. I guess it has a lot to do with my cultural upbringing and talking to quite a few friends from similar backgrounds I realized how it has been beaten down in our system by society that light colors are a terrible thing for dark skinned people only as you grow older you realize that its not quite so! Actually some of my family, friends and acquaintances still have not realized this! So with this concept I present to you my mustard yellow leggings and gloves! Trust me I never imagined myself mixing with this color but I am glad I did…I cant get enough of this now! I am already thinking and raking my head on how else can I incorporate this into my closet! And then ofcourse duh it hits me earlier today how these are my school colors too! Yeah sometimes I can be really slow at picking up things possibly because my brain is like a constant land mine of thoughts one explosion after another- alot of people that personally know me will attest to this. The mustard color isn’t picked up well by the camera unfortunately.
Anyhow this outfit was worn to a quick stroll around the city where we visited a coffee shop that I had been meaning to stop by – Van Gogh Cafe and then after being unable to figure out where to eat we all hoped into my car and sped back to our trusted Sunday Night spot -Duclaws Brewery (Ah remember the land of the best lamb burgers i mentioned in a previous post?) Ofcourse reviews will shortly follow this post 🙂
The Ravens won after a tough game and I wondered if its because everytime I dress in anything other than my football jersey on a sunday the game becomes alittle tough to win – Superstitious much?
Anyway let me know what you think of the mustard yellow and are you are willing to give it a try…and if you already have please feel free to share it with me in the comments section!
