The colour of royalty...



"I won't eat any cereal that doesn't turn the milk purple." 
- Bill Watterson 






Purple is an uplifting calming colour that encourages creativity so its not wonder that after seeing wilder than a teenager's post featuring purple jeans, i felt inspired to play with a look with purple denim. It's a colour i have loved since a young age so it was easy as that to find something purple...


(she is an amazing and truly inspring blogger!)







Purple Facts: 
- In Thailand, women mourning the loss of a husband wear purple.
In Japan the color purple signifies wealth and position.
- In stained glass it is said that purple is the love of the colour red and the wisdom of the colour blue combined into one colour.
- Purple plants are used alot in landscaping because it is meant to make the garden feel calm.
- People who drive purple cars are seen as creative, individualistic and original people



What im wearing:
- Stripped Top (Cotton on)
- Purple denim mini skirt (Supre)
- Owl necklace (Thanks tara!)
- Black belt (Vintage - Used to be my mums)
- Chucks

What do you guys think of my hair? anyone want a hair tutorial?

Till next time,

    I love purple myself. It's been one of my favorite colors since I was 11. It's a royal color, you know. ;)

    I was contacted by Bloggers Wardrobe to join. I never heard of them until now. I think they are still asking applications for invitation? Good luck. :)
