navy + lavender










cardigan  vintage
blouse  thrifted
skirt  vintage
shoes  vintage ferragamo

There are certain colors I never gravitate towards clothing-wise and purple is definitely one of them. I like it just fine as a color but I've never been drawn to purple clothing. That is, until I laid eyes on this lovely lavender hued skirt. It stands out in my wardrobe of navy, cream, beige and rust but it was too pretty to pass up. It pairs rather well with this funny navy blouse that I dug up at a thrift store (and will probably put in the shop soon) and a beautiful white vintage 1940's bag from one of my favorite shops, Dear Golden Vintage. Now, does anyone want to come over and give me a bang trim so I don't look so darn scruffy anymore?

I'm loving your hair in that side braid/knot you've got going on -- I am in serious need of a bang trim right now too. thanks for the "perfect hair" compliment btw-- if you could only see it on a day I don't blow-dry (scary!).

p.s. purple is a great color on you!

Love the navy & purple combo... purple was my favorite colour as a kid and sadly I don't have a lot of it in my warddrobe!

I'm envious of your little flower market too, it's still a little cold here for farmer's markets.
