Color Me Precious

Top: Thrifted (Thank You, Wendy! :P )
Skirt: Mom's vintage hidden treasures
Heels: Gibi
Belt: SM Dept Store

Talk about a really inexpensive outfit! :P Booya!

Last Sunday, while the parents were abroad, I was mom. And I tried to look the part.

Threw on this quick and fuss-free outfit where I color blocked in jewel tones.
I loooove jewel tones, especially when incorporated with drapes (not this one though) because personally I think jewel tones (like emerald, Ruby, Amethyst, Saphire, etc ) have an instant elegance to them, or maybe it's just my princess frustrations. The colors are rich and dense in a way I couldn't quite explain but am very much drawn to. I remember my debut dresses when I turned 18 being purple and wine to burgundy-- royalty colors, jewel tones. :)

I think aside from the colors being the center of attention here is the silhouette of my skirt and the texture of my top that I almost did not accessorize, and I actually enjoyed the minimal feel. :))

Quick post. Have some serious writing to do.
God, help.
Goodnight, Kids!
