what i wore :: purple & pink

:: head to toe ::
scarf :: thrifted
necklace :: Stick Man
shirt :: Ivan's great aunt
belt :: thrifted
skirt :: thrifted
shoes :: thrifted

Of course I could not resist wearing some pink and purple and snapping outfit photos while we were visiting the lilacs. The weather was so perfect on Saturday and we tried to spend as much time outside as possible. 

I am pretty excited about my guitar necklace! I got it at a store in Guelph but Stick Man is actually on Etsy as well. I have been playing guitar since high school and although I am not super amazing and don't play that much anymore I still love all things music themed. Now I feel like I should pick up a guitar and play a bit today!

You probably can't really tell in these photos but I have lightened my hair a little bit more. I can't wait until it is white again! I really do wish it was pink or purple for this photo though. That would have been so perfect!

  8. You look so pretty hanging in the lilacs...I am sure it smelled just delicious, too! We have a lilac bush out front and the whole house smells so good right now...I wish they would bloom all summer. xo

  9. COOL! Love your outfit! What do you use to edit photos like that? Is there a specific program you would recommend! I've not seen your blog for a long time, and was really surprised when I saw that you were blonde now! I love it, but I think I prefered it before! Anyway, great outfit, great post! Neevie x

  13. Oh I totally called the hair lightening thing! I thought I was just imagining it. I'm excited to see how it turns out! Totally loving your skirt and the whole look--it's perfect for lilacs.

    (Also, you and Kaylah totally posted outfits in the same exact color palette and your posts were back to back in my google reader. It kind of blew my mind a little.)

  16. Hey Elycia,

    Just wanted you to know that I've been a blog follower for about 2 years. I love how creative you are and how you really put yourself out there. I've read every post of yours and you and other creative bloggers have given me the courage to step out there a little myself. No, my style isn't quite as quirky as some of yours are...but I am wearing things that I love and don't try to conform myself to what other people think I should be wearing. I have yet to make an outfit post but perhaps in the near future...

    Anyway...just wanted to say thanks.

    :-)

  18. Oh man, these photos have me so pumped for things to be in full bloom. It feels like it's taking forever for things to grow out here in the mountains. I could definitely go for a stroll through some lilac bushes right about now.

  26. Oh am I ever in love with that shirt! I've been searching every thrift store I go by for years looking for one just like it. My grandma used to wear blouses like that and the older I get the more and more I wish I was just like her. Great outfit Elycia (as always)!
