purple silk.

The purple silk blouse, bought on our trip to California last week, was one of the items I couldn’t wait to wear when we got back. The color is so rich and beautiful and the silk is incredibly smooth. To give it all the attention, I decided to pair it with tones of black and gray. Luckly we snapped these pictures right after an early appointment (hence the sleepy eyes) at the bank in the morning, since it started to snow/rain/thunder just a few hours later and I had to add multiple layers to this outfit.

J.CREW: silk blouse

H&M: shorts, blazer

ZARA: shoes

CIRO: ring


NAILS: P2 #120 “dangerous affair” (c/o Palmers)

**earrings from a boutique in Amsterdam.

PS. For those that asked about my size in these items – the blouse is a 10 since I prefer these kinds of blouses to be oversized. The right fit would have probably been a 6. For sweaters I usually have Medium and for shirts S or M. Hope that helps.

    The blouse is gorgeous!! I love how you paired it with dark colours to make it stand out :)
    One thing irks me though – and I hope you don’t take this as a mean comment – but i find the blazer makes your broad shoulders seem really small!

    Super schöne Farbe. Ich kann im Moment auch einfach nicht genug von Seidenblusen in knalligen Farben bekommen.
