Wearing Lilac in Autumn with Camel And Plum


 Oh camel coat how i love thee. Since my big coat debate i have worn this coat so very very much!! I've mentioned previously how i sometimes start from the outer layer of the outfit and work my way in, well it bodes well when the coat is this good! Camel goes with so much, which makes for very easy outfit making. I recently saw in Look magazine camel and lilac for a 70's type vibe, graced the catwalks on some designer shows. And I like this combo. It brings a pretty pastel  colour to autumn, when we used to be all about the browns and blacks. Fresh colours are always welcome, especially when paired with the wonderful neutral of camel.
I paired my new plum 'tube trousers' (fancy word for thick stretchy leggings if you ask me) in to the outfit for some depth next to the lighter colours. Black seemed to dark, jeans would work too but this lovely plummy colour added just the right amount of warmth.
I wish i'd taken my coat off to show the sleeves of this lilac fine knit sweater. It has lovely little jewels all over the sleeves for that extra sparkle. Love it! (have a look here plus it's on sale for £10!)
