Greys and purples with my wedding shoes

Hello lovely readers! Yes these are my wedding shoes, I’ve worn my wedding trousers a few times on the blog and just hadn’t worn the shoes for ages. You can’t see but they’re wedges, and very comfortable too thank goodness 🙂

This is what I wore on yet another cold grey day this summer (summer?! To the cold wet weather: will you please just END already??). I took grey days as inspiration but added bright pops of purple, lilac, pink and orange. I love this colour combo, it’s a nice alternative to traditional summer colours; however I think I was more than a little influenced by this outfit I Pinned of Kim at eat.sleep.wear…!

Oh and the third pic was taken just after the Red Arrows flew over – Mr. Summers tried to get them in the shot but of course they were way too fast for him to change the camera settings in time. So he just photographed my reaction instead: Great hair action, mister!

Happy Friday to you all and have a fabulous weekend!!

      Thanks Rachel my lovely… try eBay, I have three more like it but they (unlike this one) are vintage – there was a specific style/brand that was popular in the 80s and they seem to be sold quite often on eBay! xoxo

    These colours are so beautiful – and the dress really suits your figure! The weather is even worse in Denmark – can you believe it? There's just no occasion to wear sandals or summer dresses – depressing!

      So glad you like the outfit, K – and oh dear, Europe seems to be horrible in so many places!! C x

    You always put together such fantastic color combinations! And those trousers look so comfy – they look like something I would wear to lounge around the house in. But don't worry, you've made them look stylish!

      I have thought I will wear them round the house, Stacey (but with heels ;)) Thanks sweetie so much! xoxo

      I did umm and ahh over whether to keep them, Natasha – but the colour won me over :)) Thanks sweetie! x

    It's reassuring to know that it isn't just gray and raining in Vancouver! You look great, as usual.

      I can't remember what the sun looks like, Royo… I hope your weather is improving, sorry to hear you have it too! Thanks hon xx

    Aw sorry about all your bummer gray days 🙁 But this is a really fun outfit…those shoes of course are drop dead gorgeous, and I love those lavendar pants!

      Oh my goodness it is remarkably similar, Kasmira! Strangely I wore mine last year with brown boots… you are obviously having a huge influence on me!! C xx
