Shoes – Anne Klein; Earrings – Francescas.
As the new school year starts, I felt like a student myself when I wore this outfit inadvertently like a school girl. Making this sleeveless dress appropriate for the falling temperatures was a no brainer, but adding the right shades of yellow took some thinking. I debated a good minute between wearing a brighter shade of yellow like this one vs wearing the creamy yellow shirt that I actually wore. Contrasting between different shades of the same color is something that my mind has been swaying towards of late. Its almost as subconscious as choosing this pair of cutout pumps as my fav DSW long weekend sale (some are at $19.99!!) find.
Only when I wear such contrasting shades do I realize how much I have tanned. No sunscreen works on me, I will tan, no matter what, and unlike people here who love to sun-bathe and tan, I would rather not, because I get random tan lines from rings, watches, sandal lines etc without even trying. And I tan fast! As fast as 10 mins under direct sun. Sigh.
