Purple & Red

Nothing more relaxing on a Saturday afternoon than catching up with a friends while strolling, window shopping, drinking tea and eating warm blackberry and apple pie in one of your favourite cosy cafes. Yesterday, I had a great day doing exactly that. One of the things we talked about was our recent trips and so today, I wanted to show you my outfit I wore to the 7 star hotel for afternoon tea in Dubai. The service was impeccable as you can imagine and the food was beyond delicious. If your in Dubai, it's a must visit. I'm loving the red & purple combinations that are springing up this Autumn. Brown Thomas' window on Grafton Street has a beautiful display. It was hard to get a picture yesterday with so many people walking by but the colour combination was essentially that in my outfit in this post. The skirt is a statement in itself so I could have played it safe and toned it down with a black or white top but I felt like playing it up instead & paired it with a red top. I loved this outfit. Mostly I like changing things up but have you ever loved an outfit so much that you want to wear it the exact same way as before? I'm tempted with this one.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend too.

Welcome to my wardrobe

This hot pink Kate Spade bag was love at first sight.  I was looking for a bright coloured bag. In the past I have had a tendency to go for bags that will go with plenty of outfits and be very versatile. This is mainly down to me not changing my bag everyday. Not that I don't want to, I just simply don't have the time. Does anyone else feel that way? However, recently I felt that I needed to spice up my bag collection with some colours. I know this bag is matching this dress but I have worn it with a few different outfits and it seems to go great with alot. Sometimes a pop of random colour really lifts an outfit. For this bags debut on holiday in Dubai, I paired it with this dress I had been eyeing up for a while but only purchased it as soon as it went on sale. I just loved the tribal print.You know you have a bargain when you were eyeing it before the sale price! More outfit posts and updates from my travels in Duabi to come shortly.
Happy 1st of October everyone.x
