PREPPY IN PURPLE

Today I've been shopping colorful lights for the balcony (Kitsch! Crazy! Wooh!) and now I plan to spend the rest of the evening not tidying up but browsing interior design magazines instead. Those are the only ones I order and read (almost) nowadays. I just cant get enough! Might have myself a glass of red too now that I think of it.

It's so dark at five o'clock already it's pretty much impossible to get the colours of any outfit but there's a lot of purple in this one. Or, maybe not that much, but the cardigan and the tights. A little more than just some.

(Here I'm illustrating how it looks with me not tidying up but reading those magazines. Sans the red though.)

The skirt is the one from Zara, shoes vintage and the baby blue blouse Freddies of Pinewood.

And yes, can't help it but I think things like this is very funny. Sneaking in to photos.
Haha.

Great photos, I have the same problem with the light... I am waiting for fresh winter mornings when it will not be a problem. Great make up and set.

Beautiful and fun! I love the vintage look, you do it the best! It's demure and hot at the same time, perfect!

Your place is really looking great from the photos you've posted.

I've been enjoying a couple small cups of sake while cooking lately, it's been a really nice flavor and feeling - and of course you can have it chilled or hot, depending on the mood :)

Also, that last photo *is* very funny, it made me smile :)

Cheers!

Oh you have a Smeg fridge, you lucky thing! I have always wanted one of those. Great outfit, manages to be both preppy and elegant.

Purple is your color, love! Also, the lighting adds a wonderful ambiance. Your kitchen is coming along nicely... makes me want some time to work on my own!

I love the photo where you sit at the table. And I know everything about the lack of light - but in four months it will get better ;)
