Lilac Skies

23 November 2008

When it isn't raining, the cold winter skies are a delightful cornflower blue in the morning and lovely lilacs and oranges in the evening. After taking the photo from my bedroom window, I decided that I had to wear those hues the following day.
I'm wearing...
Piano T-Shirt (TopShop)
Dress/worn as a top (French Connection)
Skirt (TopShop)
Belt (Vintage)

Today for lunch with the rents (weekly dim sum) I wore the same skirt again (I do love it after all) though I do find Winter frustrating sometimes because it all gets covered up with the coat. Looking back, maybe I could have put my belt over the cardigans for a bit more shape...sometimes you don't really realise until you see images of yourself do you?
I'm wearing...
T-Shirt (neurotica white label)
Belt (Izzue, HK)
Cardigan (Urban Outfitters)
Purple Frill cardi (HK)
Skirt (TopShop)
Tights (Topshop)

Hat (New Look)
Coat (Urban Outifitters)
Scarf (gift)

I tend not to wear shoes in the house which might explain the lack of shoes in the photos. I assure you that I was wearing some trusty brown boots and some topshop flats respectively...or maybe I was wearing some totally hideous shoes, you'll never know!

You might have noticed that I've had a haircut in between outfits...I am glad that the fringe is back but they grow so fast! I will definitely try to keep myself away from any scissors as I always do a terrible job of trimming. Good job my hairdresser promised he would do it for free!

  4. The purple and pink together are just lovely! I love that bow belt too, so pretty! I know what you mean about fringes, they grow freakishly quick, don't they? I always attack it with the scissors and get that lopsided, too-short look going!

    The snow after a club is very odd because everybody turns into children, oohhing over it and then throwing snowballs and drawing on cars! Char x
