Surely….surely I’m not alone here, every time I try a new colour it becomes my instant favourite. This lavender ruched top was no exception. I have sworn for years until I was blue in the face that I would never be seen in any shade of purple….
until wine + late night online shopping happened.
I was buying some handbags online from Urban Outfitters when I had a quick glance in the tops section because, to put it lightly, I have a shopping addiction (somewhere Russell is rolling his eyes). This top popped up in yellow, and I mean, obviously I needed it. The yellow was sold out in my size so I took as risk and added the purple one to my cart (thanks to the Pinot Grigio for helping with the decision).
One week later, the package arrived, I fell in love, swallowed my pride, and now happily admit I am a full blown purple fan.
These jeans are actually a high waisted mom jean that I bought 2 sizes too big for me so they were baggier and sat low on my hips. I had no idea if this idea was going to work and lucky for me, it did! I love how the look and fit of them turned out. I am usually a size 6 or a size 8 so it was kind of risky ordering these in a size 12 without knowing how they would look.
Because of the tight and ruched design of the top I paired it with baggy jeans and some low strappy sandals along with one of the bags from my mini UO haul. This outfit is perfectly cute for Autumn.
