Korakia courtyard outfit

The week before last Vix from Building A Colorful Life did a post on her latest trip to warmer climates, and the place she stayed, Korakia in Palm Springs. Her photos are so colourful - and the one of the courtyard inspired this outfit:



This is also my contribution to Visible Monday at the Not Dead Yet Style blog. Since I was leaving the house shortly after this photo I couldn't help bringing yet another photo of my pink coat:




Last week I wore the same dress, well in red, with the same jeggings (i bought two pairs in pink):




The socks were slightly different, see:



On one of the really cold but sunny days I remixed my favorite disco knit:




The pearls and the pink watch:




I'm sick of seing myself in boots - my silver shoes would have been so much nicer. Maybe I should get a pair of silver boots for next winter?

  3. the blue is a scrumptious color on you. Personally, I'm convinced that this aqua/turquoise color is one of the most versatile for all compleions.

  5. Love your homage to my shot; you are absolutely the sky/tile, flower petals, and white stucco! Works for the courtyard and works for you.

    [I *may* have bought a periwinkle blue silk top after my trip. It's been worn with deep purple velvet and is slated to be paired with emerald green, but now I'm thinking...I do have a hot pink wool skirt. Will let you know if I get that brave.]

    1. For the first time in my life I'm a (rose?) petal!!! With stucco (almost the same as alabaster, right?) white skin... Thank you very much Vix! Velvet and silk sounds really luxurious but both emerald and hot pink sound more like colours for spring...

  7. Thank you so much Anna! I only spent like two minutes (or maybe 5...) outside but my skin reacts immediately to this strong spring sunshine, so mostly I end up with a burn. I'm glad you like the colours, I think I may try to pair the blue dress with a bit of yellow next time!

    1. Thank you very much Barbara! The dresses are some cheap ones from H&M! I'm wearing the largest size (in Denmark, it may differ in other parts of the world), and I can't wait for summer to wear them with cropped leggings!
