Yellow Midi with Statement Patterned Shirt

Over 50s woman in golden yellow midi skirt and white shirt with yellow flower print
Pairing a smart shirt with a plain midi skirt has become one of my favourite looks. It's crisp and easy, ideal for work, and with a print shirt, there's no need to add clutter with jewellery.

I found this gorgeous yellow floral print at the Bias-Cut.dot com's recent pop-up shop in London, where founder Jacynth Bassett was chairing a panel discussion on the topic of Ageism in Fashion.

The shirt is by Scottish firm Gibson and Birkbeck, and while it was the last one of this type, they have others including a gorgeous sea shell print, a stunning bee eater, and ostriches.
The yellow Celina skirt is by Hobbs and is currently reduced in the John Lewis & Partners sale. The white sandals with perspex heels are a couple of years old.

The honeysuckle, in the background, is very good this year - in fact a lot of things are: they must have liked the baking hot weather last year and the fairly mild spring.

You can just about see my citrine ring, above, which was my only accessory for this outfit.

  1. What a fabulous bright color! I never liked yellow but this season I can appreciate that color more! Strange how even a color can grow on you!
