185 days to go: Amethyst Leopard


Sheila's working the dress post is addictive.
I pulled out this Karen Millen dress which I've only worn twice.
It is very short for me and when worn alone has a plunging back and neckline (guess why I haven't worn it?)
I love the colours amethyst (too light to be purple, too dark to be lilac).
I layered it with a long black t-shirt and charcoal waistcoat.
I wish I'd had an amethyst t-shirt instead of the black but hey I had to work with what I had.
Amethyst is my birth stone (February) and this outfit gave me the chance to wear the necklace and bracelet I got from my parents and husband for my 40th birthday.

Dress: Karen Millen
Tights: Tesco
Boots, waistcoat and t-shirt: Dorothy Perkins
Scarf: M & S

The scarf and the textured tights set the whole outfit off.
