Ultra Violet

Sweater: Thrifted, $3 // Skirt: Lucca Couture, courtesy of Lucky Magazine // Tights: HUE via TJMaxx, $5 // Shoes: Forever 21, $26 // Scarf: On loan from New Flight

To highlight this pretty cotton jersey scarf, handmade and embroidered by LOLA artist New Flight, I added another pop of purple with the tights. A slightly metallic grey skirt and rugged sweater complete the look.


It's interesting how my new hair color is affecting my style choices. While I typically gravitate toward warm, earthy tones, I've found myself much more apt to wear both cool, icy shades like silver and lavender as well as bold, primary colors like bright red. Also, my eye make-up has gone from brown to black. I'm reveling in the fun little changes.

I'm really loving the new hair color, and you're right that it totally changes the visual aesthetic of your style. This outfit is particularly wintry and wonderful!

This color palette looks perfect with your new hair color! Isn't it funny how changing your hair can alter your entire style? Every time I dye my hair, I notice myself choosing completely different colors to wear.

I really like your new hair colour, I wish I was as brave as you to make changes like that but my hair has pretty mich stayed the same since high school.

Lovely scarf!
