Purple and Gold


Just a quick post here, as I've got a bit to do before my rehearsals this afternoon...but wanted to put up what I wore to the lab yesterday. It started out as me feeling slightly uninspired and wanting to just wear a combination that I know I like...so on went the purple blouse, the warm stretchy gray skirt, and the necklace I made from some vintage components.


But then before I walked out the door I reminded myself that it was still winter. And thus, I ought to wear something over this outfit. Which was when I saw the lavender cardigan I'd thrifted a few weeks ago, and suddenly the outfit became purple-themed. With some gold lacy earrings I'd made a couple of years ago, and my finally trying the belted cardigan look, I actually was pretty pleased with this outfit. I even got some comments on it at work.


The earrings and necklace don't really match, up close, but they both had a gold lacy look.


Also, I really need to keep taking these pictures in natural sunlight! So much nicer!

I like how your cardigan picks up on the purple of your shirt and skirt - very nice :)

Honestly, I truly need to start belting my cardigans - it creates such a stunning silhouette!! :)
