It Was All Purple

October 18, 2012

Sam Edelman booties, Club Monaco skirt & tights, sweater c/o Spendid,
Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, TNA scarf, Twenty8Twelve jacket, jewellery c/o Brooklyn Designs
Yesterday was legitimately one of the busiest days I’ve ever had – started at 5:30 a.m. and carried on right through until 10:30 p.m., which might explain why I’m having a bit of writer’s block today.
Let’s just leave you with pictures today instead of the incoherent stream of words that will spill out if I try to write anything half-decent – since I was pulling a ridiculously long day, this was all about comfort and purples, with little pretty touches from Brooklyn Designs.
Hope you all have a wonderful almost-weekend (aka Thursday)!

    That sounds like a crazy long day!! My body can't handle days like that, I just end up exhausted for the rest of the week. I love this outfit, such pretty cozy layers. And the purple tights and scarf are the perfect infusion of colour in the outfit

    That's an unnatural time to get up! Sounds like you've been a busy gal. That CM lace skirt is amazing, I've been admiring to for quite some time. No one does layering like you do!
