Mellow Yellow

Collectif Vintage Giorgia Plain Top in Yellow Collectif Vintage Matilde Plain Swing Skirt in Yellow Deer Arrow Freddie the Sailor Brooch

While I technically haven't gone anywhere (unless Disneyland counts), I took a little vacation from the blog these past two weeks.  As I've mentioned in the past, this blog almost always provides me an outlet to express my creativity and relieve stress.  But then there are times when it's just a burden.  Over the years I've learned how to recognize when I need to step away and something even more difficult: not to feel guilt when I do.  It's been a fun yet jam-packed two weeks and I'm now ready and more inspired than ever to start posting again!  I had to jump back in with these new separates from Collectif Clothing.  Super cute, comfy, and incredibly versatile; these pieces are the perfect pair for the warmer weather that is now officially here!

The Giorgia top and Matilde skirt are sold separately but I feel like they were meant to be together.  These pieces are made from a textured, structured cotton that retain their shape but are incredibly comfortable to wear.  The Giorgia top features a square neckline, thick straps, and an exposed back buttoned closure.  I took a UK8 and I was very happy with the fit.  The buttons can be a little difficult to fasten by yourself, but I just put it on backwards and then shimmy the top around.  The Matilde skirt is a fun yet not-too-full swing skirt with a thinner waistband and a back zippered closure.  I also took a UK8 in this skirt and it was the right choice!  I can totally see myself wearing this with a contrasting colored top for a cute summer outfit (or maybe even a Disneybound?).  For now, I'm going to enjoy these pieces together while the weather allows!

If you don't follow my closet account (you can do that HERE), I recently made an announcement that my friends and I will be listing TONS of super cheap clothing, shoes, and accessories on Friday, May 11th.  There will be lots of goodies from sizes XS-2X, so you can grab some vintage, vintage reproduction, and retro stuff for a steal!  We will only be posting on May 11th and it's a private account, so you'll have to follow it to have access to the sale.  I'll be posting more about it as the day gets near, so keep your eyes peeled for updates!

  1. This is such a refreshing look! It almost reminds me of the Man in the Yellow Suit from Curious George - but in the BEST way possible!! They've gotta write a female version and if they do, you've got that role! ;)
