OOTD Spring Colors:: Yellow, Orange and Khaki


"Beauty without colour seems somehow to belong to another world"
~ Murasaki Shikibu
_______________

"Belleza sin color de alguna manera parece pertenecer a otro mundo"



Hi everyone! How is it going?
I wanted to share the quote by Lady Murasaki Shikibu. I just read about her and it impacted me. She was a noblewoman and lady-in-waiting, a writer who emerged from Japan's glorious "Heian" period.

My world contains color, and I find beauty in it. If you haven't already noticed, I love color and I tend to wear it more during Spring and Summer. One of the things that caught my attention about Lady Murasaki is that  among many things that were expected for noblewoman, they had to master the art of dressing well including what color to wear when and where. Can you imagine that there is a color for every occasion... interesting!
On this occasion, I wanted to wear a colorful outfit for a spring day. I enjoy these days, you can wear a merino pullover or a blazer to keep you a little warm while the cold wind blows. I think I just became a fan of this color combo ~ yellow(or retro lemon)-orange-khaki and nude ;)
I hope you enjoy this outfit idea..kisses!

Hola a todos! Como han estado?
Quise compartir la frase de Lady Murasaki Shikibu. Recientemente lei sobre ella y me cautivo. Ella era una mujer de clase noble y asistente de la Emperatriz, era escritora quien emergio en Japon durante la era Heian.

Mi mundo contiene color, y encuentro belleza en el. Como ya has notado, me encanta vestir color y mucho mas durante Primavera y Verano. Una de las cosas que me llamo la atencion sobre Lady Murasaki es que una de las cosas que se esperaba de las mujeres de su clase era que dominen el arte de vestirse bien, como saber que color vestir dependiendo de la ocasion y lugar.....interesante!
En esta ocasion, me encanto vestir un atuendo colorido para un dia primaveral. Disfruto mucho estos dias, donde uno puede vestir un pulover o blazer que al mismo tiempo te mantiene abrigadita mientras el viento fresquito te acaricia.
Creo que me he convertido en una fan de esta combinacion de color ~ amarillo (o retro limon) - anaranjado- beige y color desnudo ;)
Espero te haya gustado esta idea de ropa..besitos!
