A Day of Plum and Slate

This weekend went by rapidly for me, and the previous week was all of two things: lively and very productive. After a quick work meeting, I dashed out to meet up with a friend for a late dinner, which was perfect because she had an extended flight delay. Then, I uncovered a visa gift card in my leather jacket mini-pocket … and it still works! Later on, I then tackled two personal projects and acquired new trims for a future crafting session as well.   

Somehow, with all of the busyness and shifting of scheduling, I also managed to get one day of rest through it all … well, almost!

There are many fashion elements that I adore in my ensembles, and as you already know, aside from lace, embellishments are one of my favourites to put into play! Whether it be accessories or garment trimmings, my fashion eyes call forth visual whispers, beckoning me to respond stylishly. Afterward, I react with artful expressions in my donned threads.

The outfit of the day was simple: I pulled out my grey jersey skirt that I made and paired it with my corduroy jacket, which was actually ideal for the necklace that I received from Vancouver-based online jewellery boutique Olive & Piper. The item came in second to my initial selection, but it ended up being a first-rate fit for this outfit!

 
A sleek, yet comfortable feeling was exactly what I wanted. This look could also easily become versatile into transitional seasons, given the nearly glam-nautical vibe to the necklace, and the lightness of the jersey–all workable elements throughout the year in my opinion.


This was my absolute solution to take on giving gentle colours, like grey and charcoal a polished and pleasing effect with a mauve overcoat. And, to think all of these pieces alone might be considered purely casual. However, with hints of golden and silver sparkles on the neck, accompanied by onyx and silver on the waist, it’s a multifaceted pairing that I love at the moment!

Have you tried wearing calming hues with subtle sparkle?

  8. Hi sweetie, what a beautiful look! Adore the pallet of the white, mauve purple and the charcoal grey tones, they all compliment very well. I must I say I am in love with your necklace, it's such a stunning piece and a perfect finisher for this look and probably many looks. :)

    Take care and have a wonderful week,
