Outfit: Colouful Wednesday





NL Turquoise

I wanted to incorporate my third and final thrifted scarf into today’s outfit. The blue in it matches this dress so that was the starting point. This one was £3.99, BNWT. I thought it would be fun to pick out some of the other colours in it too, making a very brightly coloured ensemble. I have been reading What Katie Wore for the past few months, ever since seeing the spread on her in Grazia magazine. Katie always wears very bright colours so I guess she was partially my inspiration today.

  1. Love these colors, especially the shoes against the tights!

  2. Thank you. I loved how the blue popped against the purple all day.

  3. The shoes look very different on the outfit foto (bright blue) and on the shoes foto (torquose). What's the true color? :)

  4. The true colour is turquoise. The pic of just the shoes was taken without a flash - I'll have to get a better one next time I wear them.
