Colour blocking

I fell in love when I saw these purple skinny jeans. I was shopping with a friend when we walked past them, and I stopped to squeal "Oooh! Purple jeans!" with a small bounce. They're quite bold for me, so I slept on the idea and went back a few days later to buy them (on sale!). They made their debut that evening for a braai with friends. (For the overseas readers, a braai is a South African bbq of sorts. Only we use real fire and real smoke instead of those useless gas griller things.) I thought I'd try my hand at the colour blocking trend by pairing it with a turquoise top instead of the black or grey I'd usually wear.

Purple jeggings from Woolworths // Turquoise t-shirt from Woolworths // Grey and purple butterfly print scarf from Poetry //  Diamante stud earrings from Woolworths // Flower cocktail ring from Mr Price // Purple beaded necklace from Mr Price // Silver chain (with cross) from Simply Silver // Amethyst bracelets gift // Amethyst ring gift // Grey blazer from Mr Price // Black ankle boots by Bronx from Footgear

I kept my makeup in a similar theme, by using bright lipstick ("Amethyst Shimmer") and purple/ pink eyeshadow. I wanted to paint my nails, but ran out of time so I left them au naturale.

I finished off the look by putting my hair into a high, braided bun.
