Yesterday I decided I should try harder to find some new colours to pair with my purple jeans – I’m pretty sure today’s green fits the brief. This navy/green print top somehow managed to convince me it was pretty much navy, and then before I knew it I was wearing emerald-green and bright purple together!
These outfit photos have sat on my camera a couple of days now – I don’t even remember which day they were from! Navy and purple: my favourite combination at the moment – I must try to get a little more adventurous again with these purple jeans.
Things to appreciate this weekend:
1. A civilised meal with good friends at a restaurant, child-free
2. My parents-in-law for enabling us to be child-free for an evening
3. Even though I couldn’t figure out how to capture this outfit well on camera, the jeans really bring out the purple tones in this floral shirt
So you may have noticed I recently had a trip to the hairdresser. She cut it way too short at the front. In her defence, she hasn’t seen me for over three months (whoops). Also I arrived a little late and flustered and didn’t really explain to her properly what I wanted. So no hard feelings, but all the same when my hair frizzes out at the end of the day I can’t help but worry that it looks like a pom-pom. I’m sure I’m just paranoid.
In other news, I spent a lovely morning at a beautiful ballet-themed first birthday party. Some of the other mums were getting right into it, making their own tutus to join in the fun. Now I don’t have any desire to wear a tutu, but I’m not beyond wearing pink, purple, floral and polka dots together! It’s not exactly baby pink and soft white (as 90% of the girls were wearing today), but it was my way of acknowledging the fun “girliness” of the occasion.
Today’s outfit certainly has some bright colours going on, but the navy cardigan helps to tone it down a little. The plumber working at our place this afternoon proved this point to me. When he arrived I was wearing my cardigan and he didn’t blink an eye, then an hour later when I went to see how he was going I had taken my cardigan off: “Wow, that’s bright!”
