So, after last week's Fancy Pants edition, I'm now unsure about what season I am. I said I was Autumn, but then some of of my dear blogger friends suggested I might be Winter.

You know, I've just stumbled by with buying whatever colour I pleased most of my life. And I've forgotten what my colours were when we learnt about that in Home Economics (do you remember Colour Me Beautiful?) Also, as I grew up my mother (as biased as she is) has said I looked good in most colours. And I think I actually started to believe her.

Except when I bought a satin silver shirt. The photos of me in it looked ghastly. And the time I wore bright yellow. Perhaps NOT my colours.

So, in the spirit of Pollyanna, Autumn is definitely my secondary colour. You know, the other season that also works for me. (I think we all really have two seasons, you see.)

But with that aside, I'm sticking with the autumn theme this month and wearing my self-approved secondary colours, if that's alright with you ;)

I digress. As you may (or may not know) is that I'm not buying anything new this year. So now I want to brag about how much this outfit cost. Are you ready?

With a little thrifting and shopping my wardrobe, it cost just $49. That includes sunglasses, shoes, earrings, bangles AND nail polish.

Shazam! I am so smug right now. (We'll just overlook that they're not in my actual season colours, okay?)

Do you add up your outfits? Are you a little smug about it sometimes? And have you been wrong about your season colours?

  1. I'm actually with your Mum as I've never seen you look anything but gorgeous.

    As for that top - THAT is my colour.
    I have some amazing Funkis heels that match it perfectly and when I look through my wardrobe more than a couple of tops, beads and wraps in that specific shade.

    Happy day Mrs Fancy Pants - no matter the season, you always look great to me!

  4. Looovin the green :)

  5. Loving that top! I love green but makes me look ill so definitely not MY colour haha. And I don't add up my outfit costs, mainly because it only takes me about 24 hours to forget how much I paid for it haha!

  6. Mama's are great like that, though I think mine did give me a slightly jaded sense of reality with her opinions of me, I guess it just adds to a girl's confidence, right!?
    That belt cost $2.99!! I love it! You look gorgeous as always Kymmie, loving green on you. Hot shoes too! xo
