Build Me Up Buttercup - #psootd featuring Simply Be, H&M and ASOS Curve

Yellow is one of my most loved colours; it's an instant pick-me up, radiates happiness and cheers up an all black ensemble with ease. Yet for some reason, it's not a shade which I find myself wearing too often. I have a few bright and mustard coloured items in my clothing arsenal, but they are always an after thought when choosing what to wear. It's never until I need to rearrange things that I rediscover my sunshine coloured favourites, and it was after the rail in my wardrobe collapsed that I began to once again live in this Simply Be cardigan.

The cardigan was a gift given to me by my lovely friend A Monkey Fatshionista, and it's one of those items which works so well thrown over a pair of skinny jeans or teamed with a LBD, For this occasion, I chose to wear it with a whole mixture of separates - something which I rarely do as I tend to live in dresses and loved how it brought a simply outfit to life.

The straw vintage bags was probably one of my favourite vintage finds - just £3 at a local table top sale. I suspect it's probably closer to 80s rather than 50s, but the bucket shape and straw finish means it easily goes with most of my swing dresses.

Rose by Pearls & Swine.

Tortoise Ring and Deer Necklace both from Tatty Devine.

How cute is the bell?
I finished the outfit off with a pair of panda pumps which have been tucked away in my room for months. I saw them on the H&M website and brought them without hesitating, and I'm so glad I did as minutes later they were out of stock in every size. It was definitely one of those right place right moment scenarios! For the time being, I'm mostly wearing them with my black skinny jeans but am finding that they can work quite well with some of my dresses too on days where I'm mostly running errands.

It's weird, as I don't feel quite like myself in this outfit, but I also really love it. I guess sometimes it's good to step away from the usual and just have fun.

Until next time,
