#OOTD Start wearing Purple For Me

As the crisper Autumn days are coming I am beginning to crave the richer Autumnal colour palettes of oranges, browns and of course purple.

As i mentioned previously whilst perusing the Yours store in Swansea on its opening I fell in love with a fluffy purple cardigan, it wasn't really my usual style as I tend to go for a finer knit but it was so bloody cosy and felt as soft as a puppy's fur I had to have it.  Then when I ventured into the basement where the sale was they had the lovely purple playsuit that was seen on Betty Pamper and Becky Brown  at the bargain price of £15.00 (there is also a black version of this) I  loved the colour of it  and wondered if I could make it work in an in an autumn/winter way.

So I thought I would team it with the fluffy cardie, some opaque tights and biker boots and see how it went.  I can tell you it was a cosy outfit I am happy with the fit of the playsuit as it is fitted where I want it to be a loose where needed and I felt the length was just right.

The Biker boots were a bargain at £18.00 from Primark they are comfy, seem to be sturdy and have chunky heels.

The Boots and cardie with the dress has a 90's vibe which as someone who was a teen in the late 80's early 90's pleases me and is in keeping with my love of nostalgia.

Where to get my outfit from:
Playsuit - Yours
Cardigan - Yours
Tights - Body sensor 100 dernier Marks and Spencers
Boots - Primark.

Finally all that purple in one outfit started me thinking of Gogol Bordello and Start Wearing Purple which is a song I enjoy and never fails to make me smile so I have attached it here for your pleasure.

Thanks for reading now have a good day listen to Gogol Bordello and smile x
