Back in September, when I stated the Purple Phase, I decided to run it right throughout Autumn so I didn't feel rushed. And when I decided upon November 30th as my end-date it felt like an age away ... and now it's here!!
So here's the final purple palette:
Not once did I suggest you wear bright purple tights with silver shoes and a sunshine yellow cardigan ... until now:
In fact, I like it so much that I don't really care:
- that it was the colour of the uniform in the last school I worked in ...
- or even that I once wore a yellow + purple outfit on a weekend away in a Premier Inn hotel which, as you might know, has those exact shades as their corporate colours! I matched their decor rather too well. So well in fact that if I'd stood very still in the foyer... you wouldn't have been able to pick me out .... [I blogged all about it at the time here].
They're silver shoes for goodness sake!
And they're comfy. And were in the sale.
The skirt and vest are my most recent purchases and - if you remember this colour palette from a few weeks ago, the mix of purple and yellow with blue will seem familiar. Maybe, just maybe, the navy calms those tight down a touch .. maybe!
This series has been a lot of fun and, despite it never being intended as having as many outfit posts as it turned out, it's made me realise I want to blog more outfit posts next year. So watch this space.
Maybe purple will manage to creep its way into some of those 2012 posts too ... but it won't be my focus. [If you'd like a say in what exactly the focus should be ... keep your ideas coming].
But, for now at least, here's where the purple colour-story ends.
Cardigan: H&M ¦¦ Skirt: Gap ¦¦ Vest: Gap ¦¦ Shoes: Kenneth Cole ¦¦ Tights: Primark, I think.
OK then, as this is the end of the series, then I ought to say 'Thank you':
- for reading the series;
- for being a guest blogger;
- for leaving encouraging comments;
- for blogging your own purple projects and preferences;
- for following the Pinterest board and re-pinning things which caught your eye there;
- for reconsidering your discriminatory views about a specific section of the colour spectrum ... and for giving purple a second chance! ;-)
Well, I've got a few ideas already about blog features and series I'm going to tackle in 2012. And I'm 95% sure I've chosen the theme of the next series with the same structure as this one. But in the meantime ...
I'll be back tomorrow with my November in Numbers.
