BLUEBERRY


My growing obsession with the colour purple most likely stemmed from my infatuation with Chuck Bass and his affair with purple suits. Or perhaps from the observation that this shade comes to life in velvet or suede form. Guys and girls, please say a warm 'spring' welcome to my new suede booties by Django and Juliette. The suede is butter soft and the chunky square heel is super comfortable for everyday wear.  Here I have paired it with a sheer shirt and cropped knit combo inspired by Cher from Clueless and blazer to match. I am very much looking forward to teaming up these purple booties with bright, contrasting coloured socks worn with cuffed chinos and a loose shirt.  Nevertheless, I now regard these as my "prancer, dancer shoes" knowing the next time I'll be prancing in them will only be a hop, skip and a jump away! ;)

Wearing: cropped knit (Supre), sheer shirt (vintage), skirt (Cotton On), blazer (vintage), boots (Django and Juliette), jewellery (markets/Thailand) and Clubmaster sunglasses Ray Ban

  18. Lauren, I've said it before and I'll say it again at the risk of sounding like a creep- MODEL MUCH?! Look at those pins! You look soooooo good!

    Those purple boots totally remind me of Bass too. I must admit I like Dan's style better, but Chuck is always good for some inspiration!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog again lovely, I love reading your comments! Haha I love how mums sometimes have no idea that the stuff in their wardrobe is just fashion genius.

    Thanks for the Photoshop tip! I'm going to give it a go, because yours look great!

    Hope you had a great weekend! x x x
