Spring Lilacs


I realized when I was writing the last post that I was even more into lilac fashion than I thought. That’s probably partly because Carly wears a lot of mint (also a great spring color) but when we’re in public together we’re asked if we’re twins all the time, so we definitely try to avoid looking too matchy. It also works with my anything 80’s looking addiction. Soft, washed out shades are so pretty for spring, and these are a few things I’m into right now:


1. My Seaside Plaited Macrame Bracelet, worked in hand dyed purple and DMC 3743

2. My Crystal Flowers Necklace

3. The killer Leather Pencil Case that Carly made.

4. New Look Ciara Contrast Satchel (Asos) – which is pretty great if you’re in love with lilac snakeskin Carly used but can’t find any to make your own bag

5. Sophie Cateye Lilac and Light Blue Sunnies (Topshop)

6. Embellished Neck Skater Dress (Topshop) – perfect for afternoons in the sun (with lots of sunblock)

7. Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Asphyxia (Sephora)

8. Stila Stay All Day in Como (Sephora) – I’ve had amazing luck with my Stila liquid lipsticks really staying in place and looking fresh for hours and hours so I’ll probably add this to my collection soon

9. Faith Clementines Lilac Patent Scalloped Court Shoes (Topshop) that I need for their amazing 80’s vibe
