Look Book || Blush Tones!


Ankara skirt and Pink Jumper

Blush – a medium bright tone of Red Violet ;

although my shoes are nude ^_^ .

I wore this outfit on a visit to Oxford with my friend Anthonia. It was the first place I visited as part of my mini tour of the UK.

Two days before, I had a completely different outfit planned out in my head but then just the night before we were meant to visit Oxford I got inspired by the sunshine that sabbath morning and decided to go for a playful-bright-coloured outfit – Completely disregarding the fact that we are in the middle of Autumn!

I love this outfit, may be even a little bit too much! The skirt I wore was one of my DIY projects from spring (see here!) and unlike me I actually didn’t mind recycling this item which I featured in a post earlier this year. I guess everyone does find it hard to recycle certain items, especially when they are bold, bright and easily detectable as a ‘Recycled’ – but oh wells! Clothes are meant to be re-worn. The trick is to give a sufficient amount of time between each time you wear the item. Now how long ‘sufficient time‘ is depends on you and what the item is. Dinner dresses are harder to recycle and so are dresses worn on a night out. But some other pieces like shirts and skirts are much easier. Just find what works for you and roll with it. For me, sufficient time ranges from 1 month to a whole year ^_^ – IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHAT THE ITEM IS!

I really loved this outfit and honestly I would wear exactly the same look again if I get the chance to. What do you think? (Outfit details and comment box below)
