The old bag

Pastel colours have always been difficult for me - I like stronger colours, and I think they suit my skin colour better. At the same time it's nice to have the possibility  sometimes to wear a less noisy outfit. For more "quiet" outfits this dress is perfect. I don't know if beige qualifies as a pastel colour but I belive the mint green does. I had forgotten all about this scarf because it was so cheap. Originally i had planned to wear another scarf, but it was too cold today, so I needed something heavier.




I had to take off my shoes as soon as I got home - I have some sort of tendonitis, as far as I can read the orthopedic surgeons hand writing. Last week I got my insoles, specially made for me, and it HURTS to walk on them. So, today I'm in my socks! Hopefully the pain will be over in a couple of weeks.




The bag is a gift from a good friend, for my birthday some years ago. It's pale pink leather with gold print on the outside, and with this lovely green lining inside. It's been a long time since I've used it, but it certainly deserves to be shown off.




Apart from my rings and the pink watch I'm wearing a silver necklace with green amethyst, labradorite, freshwater pearls and sesame jasper (or is it kiwi jasper?)




This post will also be linked to Everybody Everywear as my contribution to the Wear Pastels Challenge. Now I can't wait to see the other participants - it's always so inspiring.

  2. You picked the perfect occasion to show off that purse, for sure. Beige is totally a pastel, in my opinion--but either way, you're making it work! Plus, I love how your rings go with the scarf. Too cool.

    1. Thank you so much - I have to admit that the matching rings were a bit of a coincidence!

  3. Pastels are difficult for me too. I think you did great adding the color in your accessories. I'm a huge fan of that dress.

  4. Tine, you have made me torn apart. Now I don't know if I prefer you in strong colors or in pastels. It might be hard to judge from photos, but I think this paler color scheme looks great on you. Yes, I think that old bag needs some love - it is very pretty!

    1. Thank you so much again Anna! I will be taking good care of my bag - it's so beautiful even though it's not that versatile. I think all colour seasons have their darker and lighter colours that they look good in. I'll write more about it in the next post.
