live/wear: purple + orange



I would typically never pair purple with orange because they are, historically, my least favorite colors. But I do enjoy a good, seventies-inspired, burnt orange and I’ve recently begun to hoard purple garments (my friend, Andrea, really likes the color purple; I think she’s a big part of the reason I have come to embrace it). This look actually came together from the scarf and shoes rather than from colors in the room. Normally I work the other way around.

In related news, the jeans featured above are BDG high-waisted ones from Urban Outfitters. They were my favorite jeans until the seam ripped after only the second day wearing them. Why does no one make an affordable, decent quality, high-waisted, stretch jean for a pear-shaped figure? Jeans are not my friends. UPDATE: I just found two pairs of Levis stretch jeans at Marshalls for 19.99 a piece. Hooray!
