Purple, Orange, Aquamarine and Tan - Colour Blocking

Purple two days in a row!

Wore orange, purple and aquamarine today as part of the Fashionoclast Colour blocking Frivolous Friday challenge. Thanks again to Sheila at Ephemera for inspiring me to try this bright colour combination :)

Decided to wear tan sandals to go with it because although I have an awesome pair of purple heels that would be even better I hurt my knee at the Getaway Plan yesterday so flats were needed. After a long think of what to wear with purple and orange, I settled on the aqua bag and necklace and tan shoes.

Felt nice and bright to match the sunny weather. My only downside is how baggy these pants get at the knee after running around in them all day, they really start to sag. I love the colour so I keep pushing on with them. Thinking I should have sized down though. Something to keep in mind if you're buying these from asos.

Here's what I wore today:
Top: Supre purple singlet
Necklace: Lovisa turquoise and silver long disc necklace
Bracelets: the usual
Jeans: Burnt Ochre orange pants from Vero Moda at Asos
Shoes: Asos 'flossy' flat sandals in tan (New purchase)
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in Aquamarine with python embossed leather (worn as clutch)

Closeup of accessories:


Had a great time at the Getaway Plan with my sister. I was glad they had a merch stand as it was so cold in the room I could put the tee on right away. They played so many of my fave songs, and my sister and I had a great view. Best part of the night was meeting Matt. I didn't know what to say. I kept saying "thank you" a lot, haha! He was so nice.
Highlight of my entire year! I was so excited! And blushing - very red face!


Some more photos we took at the show:



We were standing right at the front of the stage where Dave was playing - very awesome!

Best way to start the weekend. Hope you are having a great weekend too!

  14. aw..what a cute couple!!

    i totally know what you are talking about the baggy knees of the jeans. you got the legs to do tight skinny jeans...so try zara or uniqlo..their jeans are pretty good quality and inexpensive.
    i used to have a pair like that so i just kept tumble dry them...sigh...

  17. Love the bag! I have been planning on getting a mini mac (just in basic black!), but wasnt sure if the normal mac would be a better size! You have convinced me that the mini mac size is the way to go! How do you find it goes size-wise for fitting all the essentials in?
