Outfit: Burgundy & Purple


I absolutely love coloured jeans at the moment! Whenever I’m at the shops, my eyes are constantly drawn to the vast array of jeans in beautiful shades. I’m building up my jeans collection with the pink jeans I posted here, bright blue jeans that I posted here and my new green jeans and new purple jeans. I rarely used to wear jeans so its surprising to see how quickly my love for coloured jeans has developed. I’m sure all you bloggers will understand when I say that most of my clothes have a story behind them. Well, I received these new jeans last Friday so I decided to wear them out on Friday night. After an enjoyable night out, I fell into a pot hole in the dark and rainy carpark and bruised both my knees on the hard gravel. It was one of the most painful experiences of my life and I ripped my new purple jeans! I was so sad. My mother in law saved me. She is rightfully very proud of the fact that she was able to lift me up while I was injured and lying on the ground. Fortunately, I now have a new pair of purple jeans and my knees are getting better.

I wore this outfit to university yesterday. A couple of weeks ago I would never have worn these colours together but lately I’ve really enjoyed experimenting more with colour. I like the way these different shades of purple look together. Plus, my sister says that wearing these two colours together is one of the latest trends, along with teal, mustard and dark red, so who am I to disagree with my little sister!? I bought the jacket at a little boutique in Balmain called Johnston and Bell. They have such unique and sweet little pieces and I bought it on sale too. Love the sparkles and its velvet too!

  2. Oh no, I'm so sorry you fell and got hurt AND ripped your jeans:(

    I fell in a pot hole once when I was walking home from school and I had to wear a Catholic school girl uniform and I really cut up my knees.
