w.i.w.t | picnicing in purple

jacket : miss selfridge | dress : primark | necklace : finest imaginary | bag : asos | shoes : new look

clearly i'm taken by this wee bag at the moment. that, and it goes with everything, so it's kinda the perfect accessory for me. i wore this lush ensemble out and about with the girls on sunday, for our '"fauther's day" picnic - albeit i did wear a thicker jacket because it was coooold in my neck of the woods! i'm so smitten with the mint and purple combo - it's not one i would naturally pair, but as i was searching for shoes to wear, my eyes fell upon these minty flats and there was no going back. it was fate!

i do love this floral denim jacket i picked up in the miss selfridge sale the laaaast time my mum was in london (think late 2012), but i picked up the wrong size (as they definitely run big) and it's slightly baggy on me. no biggy, because it means i can do it up comfortably unlike my other denim jacket (and most jackets that fit my shoulders/back but don't do up over the chebbs). i really like the 3/4 sleeve on it too - i'm a cuffer anyway, and this means the arms stop just below my elbows - perfect! i think the floral print was the perfect way to compliment the mint and purple combo, so a bit of a shame i wasn't able to wear it out like this. 

another time, for sure!
what do you think of the purple and mint combo?

  1. It may not necessarily be a combo I would have thought of doing as first but it actually works really well. Plus Im generally smitten with anything mint. I don't blame you for wearing the purse with so many different outfits, I love satchel bags like that.
