Button-down high-waist skirt with pockets, US$45, from moonshinehill/etsy. Panelled long pencil skirt, US$119, from Spelfenmeisje/etsy.

A few clicks round serial time-wasters – etsy and ebay led me to some wholesome mustard/buttery-soft babies that is yellow leather.

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not at all adventurous with colours. My wardrobe has been for a few years, decidedly monotone with hints of navy and peaches. But when I got more comfortable with colours, the part of the wheel that sat best with me was yellow. Like shriek! omg! you-picked-the-highlighter! sunshiney-hue! yellow.

Something about suede and leather just brings out this viscosity (can I actually say that?) in yellow.

Cargo shorts, US$49, from Spelfenmeisje/etsy. Buckle-side pencil skirt, US$18, from borrowedtimevintage/etsy.

Suede kinda gives it more of an egg-yolk/dirty mustard feel which I loveeee too.

Dolman-sleeved pintuck dress with zip-front, AU$29.99, from repeataftermeshop/ebay. Bomber jacket, US$49.90, from beauty-queen/ebay.

That said, proceed with caution and watch the black (black and yellow = bee = not human = not halloween either) you wear with it!
