purple gams

Tights- Hue; Scarf & Larger Ring- Smart Set; Purple Bracelet- Persona (Giftted); Dress, Jacket, Belt, Shoes, Purse, Brown Bracelets, Brooch & Smaller Ring- Thrifted; Nail Polish- Stormy & Gold Coin by Revlon
After a week of wearing black, it was time to inject some colour into my ensembles.  This outfit and I inspired by the army green & purple hues in my scarf and I tied the look together with differing shades of brown. 


I find painting my nails relaxing and usually do so while watching tv.  I like to change the colours every 2 days or so and often find myself gravitating to clothing which complement my nails, rather than the other way around. 


The hosiery have an alien-eque glow in these photos but in person they are a bright lilac. 



Have you worn an unexpected colour combination recently ?

  1. Your purple tights are awesome! They play so well with the olive green and browns. Your fringed purse is pretty great too :)

  5. Ooh I love the olive green paired with that light, bright shade of purple! I wish I painted my nails more often--they get neglected more often than not though! Maybe this fall I'll be more motivated to do that!

  6. I adore these tights. They're an unusual color and I don't think I've ever seen them on anyone before. This outfit kind of reminds me of a stylish forest guide if that makes any sense. Maybe a glamping guide?

  7. The tights are perfect with the olive green. I wish I was patient enough to paint my nails more often.

  8. Really cute! I've wanted to try purple + green for a while, but couldn't figure out how to pull it off - but this gives me some great ideas. :)

  9. See, that's why I like reading your blog, because I would've never thought to put those colors together. I think your tights are super cool and look great with it. Also, I always love how you layer accessories. Always looks great!

  10. You had me at "Purple"; adding "Gams" just magnified the appeal. Love the way you look here.

  11. I love that you choose your clothes to complement your nail colour! My nails are too brittle so I can't wear nail polish often. Jealous ;)

  14. I have never tried purple and brown - they look wonderful together! I don't know that I've tried any combos lately that I have been surprised by. Your fringe bag is super neat! And I like how your nails turned out, I don't think they're too alien like at all!

  17. Wowzers! What a shock of purple! Very cool. I like how you kept everything else simple and neutral so your tights could be the center of attention. I've been wearing neon berry pink lately.

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
