Shades of Orchid

Hello mid week! Today was bright and mostly sunny and I couldn't help but wear a brightly hued outfit to celebrate spring.

I fell in love with this ASOS skirt when I first saw it and immediately picked it up. Lucky for me, it was on sale too! The scuba material is super trendy and oh so comfy. I'm obsessed with frilled skirts right now, and the fact that it was in Pantone's colour of the year just made me extra happy to be able to wear this.

I paired some gold rings and bangles to add a bit of warmth to the outfit. The bright pink watch matches my lipstick and adds a nice bit of contrast to all that purple.

I've been looking at a lot of monochromatic looks lately, anywhere between fashion, interior design, and photography, which inspired this all purple outfit. While I prefer monochromatic looks in neutral colours, I couldn't help but style an all purple look with this skirt. I toned down the bright colour with a dark blouse in a deep eggplant colour, and added a bright pop of pink with my Michael Kors watch and lipstick for a bit of contrast.
