Purple, Purple, Precious, Pretty Purple


(Jeans – Similar, Jacket – Exact, Sunglasses – Exact, Bag – Exact, Boots – Exact)

This is the outfit that I wore to town on Saturday with my boyfriend. I wasn’t feeling very well actually so I wasn’t really in the mood for heels and dressing up, I just put something casual together and went with it. We both ate in Giraffe for our lunch as we hadn’t been there in a long time, so we thought it would be a nice change. I had the chicken club sandwich and my boyfriend had the cheese burger, but I can never end up eating all of mine as it’s just too much food, so Adam usually eats my chips/fries.

Getting back to my outfit, I wanted to wear this really prettyΒ Faux Leather Biker Jacket with Ruched Sleeves that I got to choose from Bank Clothing. It’s a gorgeous jacket and I love the moto style collar it has to it. I did just share this with you yesterday in my new purchases post and this is how it looks worn. I took a size UK 8, which is my usual size, and it fits me fine. I like the way it’s cropped a little bit and fits in a flattering way. I decided to add a mix of purple to my outfit this time (instead of my beloved burgundy) so I went for my old 7 For All Mankind Gummy Leggings in Purple. I haven’t worn these in such a long time and I had forgotten just how comfortable they are, which was perfect since I needed comfort. Keeping with the purple theme, I threw on my Cambridge Satchel Company 11″ satchel in Wine Matte which you have seen quite a few times. The colour is gorgeous and it’s completely exclusive to ASOS too! I wore my Sam Edelman Posey boots in Black to finish it off as I needed something black to tie in with the jacket. I really love these boots actually as the chain detail across the front really makes them stand out.

I wanted to talk about these sunglasses too! I had been looking for a pair with purple mirrored lenses for a while as I only have the blue and green mirrored lenses, so when I saw these online and got to choose them from VistionDirect, I was super excited! They are by Oakley, which is a brand I haven’t tried before, but I really do like them. VisionDirect – who mostly specialise in prescription and colour contacts – have a great selection of sunglasses on their site, especially Ray-Ban’s, but I thought I would try a different brand this time. The purple is absolutely gorgeous! It’s so intense and bright, it’s hard not to stare at it! On another note too, I’ve noticed how long and thick my hair is getting again, I think I need to have it cut soon and I am thinking of having a bit more chopped off than usual. What do you think of my outfit?




This is my chicken club sandwich.

    I’m seriously loving those jeans! (As well as the jacket and boots etc…) Great outfit. Are you cutting all of your ombre off? lol. I just got my hair done and was too afraid to do anything too drastic besides my usual trim, but then I’m always trying to volumize my hair, not make it thinner haha.

      Thanks Jen! I was thinking about it as I’m so used to it now, I want a change. I’m not entirely sure yet. I might just chicken out and go with having about 3 inches off and having it thinned out instead πŸ™‚
