Lilac and yellow for spring

outfit in yellow and lilac

Spring is in the air! No need for tights any more, well, maybe in the evenings only. I am in a springy mood too and that's why I am wearing these two colourы together today. Lilac and yellow both associate with spring for me: yellow, obviously, for the sun and lilac for the flowers of Syringa vulgaris, or Lilac. There is no Lilacs here in Nepal and I miss their gentle beauty and intoxicating fragrance.

Lilac cotton sweater and yellow skirt

The sweater is cotton, an ideal choice for warm spring days. I liked not only its colour but knitting style too. The blue flats are new, I find them very comfy and quite pretty. To tie up the blue and the lilac I added a multi-stone necklace that contains stones in both these colours: there are blue lapis lazuli and lilac amethyst beads. The ring is in the shape of an orchid, I found it in Singapore's Gardens by the Bay. There were many rings in the orchid shape but only one in this charming lilac colour. It had to be mine.

  4. We have snowdrops in the garden just now but little else and must make up for the lack of colour by wearing bright tights and jumpers.
    Your outfit is a lovely combination Olga.
