pink & purple

Top- Marshalls; Skirt, Bracelets, Clutch & Shoes- Thrifted; Necklace- E-bay

If I had to pick a favourite colour combination it would probably have to be pink & purple- feminine and sassy! Here are two outfits I wore to work this week with these girly hues.

Skirt (worn like this), Top, Scarf , Belt& Bangles- Thrifted; Shoes- Suzy Shier; Rose Bracelet- Castellammare Designs

One of my close friends is my unique date night gal.  Some of the fun activities we've done together include an art gallery walking tour, indie short play festival, roller derby, firefighter calendar launch party, children directed film festival & the list goes on and on! We both really wanted to see the musical Wicked which is currently touring in Ottawa so last night we showed up at the box office 2 hours early to put our names into the discounted ticket lottery.  Lo and behold we won and only had to pay $25 for incredible seats that retailed at $125! We had a homemade vegan and gluten free picnic (yeah we're granola) in a beautiful park before being introduced to the magical story of Wicked Witch of the West (named Elphaba who turns out to be an animal rights activist so of course I was a fan!)  If you ever have the chance to see Wicked, you won't regret it.  It gave me goosebumps and I can't get the song Defying Gravity out of my head!

I told you the braids would make another appearance soon!

  1. both of your outfits are so cute. i love that purple and white skirt in the last couple of photos. SO GLAD you got to see Wicked!!! I loved it! It's coming back to New Orleans. I bought the mugs, umbrella etc. HAHAHA

  2. i am digging your bold summer outfits. you & your friend do such fun things. firefighter calendar launch, sounds very fun. ;) i saw wicked in 2010. loved it! my mom loves it so much. she has the soundtrack, & told me she'd go see it again. did you like the roller derby? a group of us went in 2010, & we were bored.

  3. I love the color combos - and that blue skirt is seriously gorgeous. And I have been wanting to see Wicked for a really long time now, I am glad you enjoyed it.


  4. That first outfit is one of my favorite looks I've seen on you. Great job thrifting that gorgeous skirt!


  5. You KNOW this is my favorite color-combination. You look fab, buddy.

    And Wicked! What a great show. When it started here in NYC long ago, nobody gave it any chance to succeed, but it did and defied expectations. The audience, of course, is usually 99% female but there's nothing wrong with that.

    One of my frequent dreams is that you and I get to do something like this together. I envy your friend.

  6. So pretty! I love this combination!! The skirt in the first outfit is my favorite! I have never seen Wicked but would like to someday!

  7. I love pink and purple, as well. One of my favorite combos - and you're rockin' it here! Greetings from Atlanta. Also, you might like my latest giveaway. Everyone who enters wins a $15 virtual gift card to Inpink jewelry! No complicated rules and it ends soon. ;-)

  9. I like pink and purple, too! Before I was a blogger (in fact, before I knew about fashion blogging) I never would have done it, but once a very very long time ago I saw pink and purple on What I Wore, and then it was all kinds of colors together after that :) Also, can't believe you got to see Wicked for $25! Lucky!

  10. I like both looks and I can't even decide which one is my favourite.. maybe the first one because of the colourful stripes and nude shoes. though the second one includes this wonderful scarf which I love! an impossible decision, I guess :P

  11. Congrats on the great score for the tix! I also love both looks, but love the neutral shoes with the first, and the terrific scarf with the second.

  12. I love pink and purple too, and they looks so pretty together in both of these outfits! I've never seen Wicked but I've heard that it's amazing. I hope that if it ever comes back to KC I'll be able to go!!

  13. My mom really wants to see wicked, I haven't seen it so maybe we'll go? That's awesome you guys won the discounted tickets and had a vegan picnic before hand! Pink & purple is a good colour combo for you, you rock both outfits!!

  14. Emily, I love pink and purple together too! but alas, I don't have a lot of either in my closet! So I will have to live vicariously through you! That first outfit is super cute! I really love the midi skirt and the shoes!

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
