Today Matthew, I will be a... buzzy bee

I found the yellow shoes on ebay a year or two ago, after seriously stalking a pair that Kasmira used to wear a lot over on her blog...

There is something a bit buzzy bee'ish*
(made up word alert!) about my outfit today.


Running on from my earlier post about dressing to suit your shape, one thing these guides often tell me to wear is an A-line skirt, which suits me fine as I have around 532 in my wardrobe. I think they suit just about everyone – and as my dear old friend used to say (btw, she's not dead, she just doesn't say it any more), if ever in doubt, go A-line.

This black and white stripey number is from River Island (£10 sale price) and actually has a layer of netting as well as the lining, which gives it that extra va va voom – and we all love a bit of va va voom don't we?

*Interesting Bee Fact: A common, yet incorrect, assumption is that the buzzing sound of bees is caused by the beating of their wings. The sound is actually the result of the bee vibrating its flight muscles, and this can be achieved while the muscles are decoupled from the wings—a feature known in bees but not other insects, oooh, who'd have known?

The yellow and the stripes are perfect together... I didn't think of the bee not until you mentioned it. I love this bee-like color ensemble. And interesting fact about bees too... thanks for sharing. xoxo

Oh, how divine! That skirt is just fabulous. Our River Island sale is full of wishy-washy florals, I'd have bought that beauty in a heartbeat!

thanks gal's, I love this skirt although it's a tiny bit itchy with the netting, but I can live with that!

Love love love this whole outfit - you look so chic. Yellow is one of my favourite colours, but doesn't suit me at all, sadly.
