Under the Lilac Tree

Strangely I think I would regard purple as being my least favourite colour when it comes to clothes; but lilac on the other hand, I simply adore! Now the weather has turned it's back on us once again and it's all gone a little dreary, I dug out a few of my more Autumnal clothes to dress according to the weatherman's preferences. In doing so I came across this very unique beaded skirt from Morgan, which I got for a mere couple of pounds in a charity shop a while ago, and thought it was the perfect item for a slightly chilly morning in June. I teamed it with this quirky monochrome blouse which was also a charity shop bargain and silver metallic biker jacket I picked up years ago at an Arcadia sample sale, to tie in with the black detail on the skirt. 
 What I'm Wearing: Silver metallic jacket: Arcadia sample sale, monochrome blouse, Morgan de toi felt embellished skirt: both Thrifted.

An old moodboard I had created for a University project dedicated to the colour.





A little lilac inspiration for you...
