Pensive in Purple

Hey chickens
I hold my hand up and confess that I may have become slightly extremely enraptured with a certain Miss Lily in recent times.
Not only does she has sensational style, enviable beauty and ombre hair (need I say more) but I have been inspired by her photos.
With my outfit of the day pictures, I have always punted for a full-length shot, but having poured over Lily's blog, I have concluded that I much prefer the closer, "knee-cap up" snap.



So this was my ensemble from last night. I embarked on another trip to the shiny lights of London, to attend a Tresemme hair event. All details shall ensue.


Aubergine tube skirt - New Look
Gold plaited skinny belt - H&M
Silk shirt - Miss Selfridge
Serpent and jewel necklace - Accessorise
Animal print headscarf - um....


What are you thoughts? 
I never wear very exciting shoes anyway, but let me know if you are enamoured with these kind of photos.
And just so you know, I am loving aubergine and camel coloured apparel for my AW wardrobe. I have a rather lengthy list already of some seasonal pieces I am keen to buy!

Your skirt is the same colour as the accent wall in my bedroom so I'm saying only good things!

Vicky said...

Love, love, love the shirt! Gorgeous. I really like it with the skirt too, little bit inspired to try it myself to be honest!

I'm loving the colour camel for A/W but not sure I'm loving the coats that are out in camel for A/W, they're a little too Del Boy for me!

Irene ♥ said...

so so pretty! your outfits are always amazinggg:)

Lily said...

looking fab as per usual! i think this way looks way better! coz if you wear floor length stuff you can always do a leg shot/shoe shot! plus most outfit detail is normally on top!

Gorgeous outfit Milly, I wish I could pull something like that off :)

I like the "knee-cap up" approach to photography, it's nice to see more detail.

Hey girlies
Thank you ALL so much for your feedback and comments. Means a lot to me and i love reading them and ensuring you like the kind of photos I chose to take. :)

You look gorgeous. As my friend says, the whole black tube skirt and top thing is overdone and too easy but I love what you've done by using a purple skirt instead!
