Day 1 – Acai
I chose a relatively safe combo to kick start Colour Fest. I already have a lot of purple, especially like Acai (Pantone 19-3628).
Today purple leggings, a paisley dress with a mix burgundy, purple and orange, a purple sweater, tan boots I had made in Vietnam and bronze coloured accessories. Too easy!
I’m off to Wellington, New Zealand for a few days. How exciting, to use my passport again! It’s more glamorous than it sounds, just going to spend some time with some of my family.
The weather forecast says a maximum of 14 degrees, with winds and rain also on the forecast. Real Winter Weather! Calls for some warm clothes, a big scarf and boots.
My packing travel colour scheme was blue and purple, with neutral items in black and denim. I am planning on doing some shopping when I get there so I went with a bigger than needed suitcase so I have plenty of room for any purchases!
Packing haul looks like this:
JUMPERS AND JACKETS
The necessary black singlets, with a blue one thrown in for layering, purple top from Revival, black top with mini stars from K Mart, black long sleeved top from SES Fashion and Aztec print sleeveless blouse from Cotton On.
My trust colourful scarf that feels like its about 7 metres long, perfect for wrapping around my neck several times and a denim dress/pinafore from Cotton On. Blue vest from Crossroads, homemade beanie (thanks mum!), Paisley dress from Living Doll, purple tights from Ambra and my grandmothers antique leather gloves.
All my shoes are from K Mart (sad I know!) But the flats were $8! I bought 2 pairs. Plus my birthday purchased Basque blue hand bag.
Sometimes I take too much jewellery and never bother wearing it. Other times I take too little and get bored with only one pair of earrings. But I justify that as I have so much jewellery, I better take lots and get the most out of it!
Packing all done! Bon Voyage!
Really liking my Purple Jeans ! Remembered I had this aqua, coral and purple Aztec print top. A great match.
The only bummer about today was that my ring slipped off, gone forever I’m afraid! Sad face. I lose so much jewellery. That’s why I buy it cheap. These earrings cost $2.50!
The blazer and shoes make me feel corporate, well as close as I’ll ever get seeing as I don’t work in a corporate field. Corporate was a weird choice for a Saturday too.
But the purple jeans and pink singlet make this outfit a whole lot less serious, like I’m sucking on a lollipop (while in a board meeting.. that’s my kind of meeting!)
Where: The Artist’s for dinner
