Golden sunlight in a blue sky

Wow, it’s been a couple of days since my last blogpost! I still had this one in a folder so I figured I could write about it. I’m going to have some more fun with other stuff too so I might just skip some more updates. I’ve been working on a couple of sewing projects and I have a lot more in mind and that’s been taking up a lot of my time. And it’s been very, very warm around here and I try to wear as little make-up on those days as possible.

I made this look with the skirt I was wearing in mind, you can see it at the end of this blogpost. It’s one of my new favourite pieces of clothing lately, I love the fabric and the style. And I hear I have a great butt in it. Can’t tell you much about that myself but hey, I think those are pretty cool compliments lol.
Anyway, the fabric is a bit like taffeta, it shifts colour a bit going from a bit pale yellow to blue so I made a look with gold and blue. I thought it looked quite nice actually.

When I was wearing it, I thought this look was nice but not that very special. But I didn;t see the awesome golden shimmer all over the look, I didn’t see that until I was editting the pictures. 😀

Maybe you could see the golden shine on these pictures but I think it shows best on the pictures with the closed eyes. I like the combination of blue and gold and that day we had a very blue sky, that’s actually what got me this title, I looked outside to think about what to call this and I looked straight into the sun… Lightbulb!

Maybe it’s just me but I think it looks pretty cool. For once the blue eyeliner actually showed up blue, usually it just looks black because it’s so dark, :lol:.

I also made a picture of the skirt otherwise you guys don;t really know what I’m talking about. I think we were going to a party the day I made this look but I don’t really remember very well, oops. You can;t really see the colour shift in this picture but at least you know what I’ve been babbling about. I got this skirt with a huge discount, it was actually about 80 euro’s but I got it for about 20, I think.

I liked this combination, I don’t wear blue as the main colour a lot but I do like it like this. What do you think? And what do you think of the skirt?

Please let me know in the comments 🙂
