Lilac, the shade of the day








 When I chose today's outfit little did I know my shirt would be echoing the lilac jewels we found on the shoreline during our photo session. I had swum in the early morning, but luckily on that other side of the island the current hadn't brought these jellyfish into the bay. I don't know if they sting, but I will be keeping my eyes peeled when I head off for my next training session.
I've put this ensemble together from a few favourite items which have not yet been aired and I'm really pleased with the finished look. The piece I particularly love is my necklace which is rose quartz and amethyst and is quite heavy, but in a lovely substantial and reassuring way, if you get what I mean. I bought this quite a few years ago, but don't often find the right outfits to wear it with as I'm not really a pink girl. I've just read a great article in the July edition of Vogue re pink girls "The PINK vote" which was a real insight into the whole pink girly thing. Anyway, I bought this lilac shirt in Hobbs sale with a view to teaming it up with my statement piece and I think it works a treat.
