Color Love : Lavender


Lavender is such a lovely color. It's feminine and chic without being overly sweet which makes it kind of perfect across seasons. It's somewhat subdued so it's also easier to wear than radiant orchid. I think it looks really sophisticated paired with burgundy and shades of grey and so fresh when coupled with mint. Are you a fan of lavender? What shades do you like to pair with it?

This is just beautiful, love this shade!! I have a lavender bag that I just got, it;s so pretty. I love the dress, the glasses and even these trousers, the scalloped edge on the pockets are so pretty. Happy Monday doll xx

Morning Rowena, hope you had a lovely weekend! I truly love lavender, I usually like to pair it with pink and I use it a lot also on the make up eyes. I think it suits very well with brown eyes as also yours. The items are all very cute, the dress is my fav one, just need something like that for spring!:) Have a marvelous week ahead, many kisses my dearest!:**

Oh this is lovely! Lavender is such a pretty color, I agree, much more subtle than Radiant Orcid :)

Oh to Be a Muse said...

Lavender is a very cute color, and I dig it in that eyelet top. But I'm also really loving eyelet right now anyway.

Christina Warren said...

I am TOTALLY getting the lavender polish! Love Essie and this color is awesome. I don't do a lot of color with my clothing so nails are a fun way to incorporate color trends. Lovely layout!

Sam said...

This set pulled on my heartstrings, love this girly shade, that dress is divine!

Nnenna said...

Lavender is such a pretty color (definitely more to my liking than radiant orchid). That dress is so so pretty and I love the nail polish as well.

I have colour envy when it comes to lavender and lilac tones. They make me look like a corpse but on others it is a wonderful shade xx

Ah, this post has calmed my heart!! I love lavender..the color and the flower! Funny enough, though, I never wear this color! I love seeing this color more and more in stores lately (along with other pretty pastels!) so hopefully I can incorporate it more :) That lace shirt is so so pretty!

I never really liked violet colours until I saw this post! The Essie polish looks lovely and all these pieces of clothing you've put together look like an absolute treat for summer. I think they would look lovely in the Autumn too with all the leaves below your feet. That dress is so gorgeous and would be lovely for a formal occasion - invite me to an opera, please!

Why would you wish for Boots? You have Sephora and everything else possible in the world! #Statesenvy Haha we should swap homes for a year. That would kick it out of our systems. Rosemary x

So pretty! I have been pregnant for so many years that getting back into the shops to shop for myself is a bit intimidating as I wore a lot of black and gray when I was pregnant....I need some of this in my life! I hope that spring is at your door...we got snow yesterday which I am so over at this point! Happy week to you! Nicole xoxo

Lavender is such a pretty color but I haven't worn it in years. I need to look for something lavender. Actually, this reminds me of my teen years, I had a pair off lavender jeans I loved, loved, loved. Visiting from SITS. Have a great weekend.

That's my middle name! I love Lavender. Curiously, I don't seem to own any of it, but do grow varieties of it in the garden. :)

Lovely colour lavendar. I used to own a cute floral dress years back in lavendar. But now I would really go for the ray bans....:-)

Maurissa Mattson said...

I'm not a big lavender-wearer but that polish has my name all over it! Essie has such great shades.

Zhenya H said...

I love the lavender colored items! I have a few in my wardrobe already, but I wouldn't mind adding the dress and the top to my collection!
