The Black And Purple Combination


(Jeans – Similar, Jacket – Exact, Top – Similar, Bag – Exact, Boots – Exact, Necklace – Similar)

We shot these photos a few weeks ago when the start of the warm weather was just coming in. The sun was shining and it was beautiful being next to the river as the light reflected off of the water. Currently right now I’m looking out of the window and typing while listening to nothing but the birds singing, so I can definitely say I am enjoying Summer so far! I can’t wait for it to warm up even more! Are you enjoying the warm weather?

For my outfit, I wore my classic Levi’s Black Skinny Jeans and tucked them into my new New Look Block Heel Black Boots (which are now in the sale at £12!). I got to choose these from the New Look website to style them and I think they are amazing, especially for the price. They didn’t hurt my feet and the block heel means they are easy to walk in! Keeping with the black theme, I wore my Zara Zip Waterfall Blazer in Black to add some structure to the look. To brighten things up and inject some colour, I then chose a Purple Top from Topshop, my Marc by Marc Jacobs Percy Bag in Berry Haze and finished it off with a Topshop Gold Cross Necklace. I think the combination of black and purple is really pretty, so I quite like how simple this outfit is, but not dull.

Now, in other news, one of the projects that I was working on is now finished! It launched on Monday and I am super excited about it! So far it’s had an amazing response from everyone and that means so much to me! I’m not going into details just yet as I’m saving that for another post, but for those of you who are reading this and are interested in finding out what the project is, please click here and it will take you to it! If you need a clue, there’s a chance it might be a brand new website… Anyway, comment and let me know what you think of this outfit!

    You look beautiful. So excited I found your blog. I’m really enjoying reading your older blog entries and getting so many outfit ideas. I’ve seen these black Levi’s on you a few times, are they not making this specific style any longer?

    • June 11, 2014 / 11:41 pm

      Hi Susie! Thank you so much, I’m really glad you like it! These were the Junior leggings, I’m not actually sure if they are making them anymore. I have had them over 2 years, so it might be the case that they aren’t still in production. Thanks for reading my blog! I really hope you will continue to!
