Hands up girls, who fondly remembers the time when lilac was your favourite colour ever and everything from your bedroom walls to your knickers had to be the pale purple hue? Well, I don't know about you but I remember it all too well (read: still haunted by childhood photos and evidence everytime I go back to my mums, ahem). That phase passed me by rather a few years ago and up until now I've not ventured to that colour palette since! Popping on this lilac playsuit makes me feel all nostalgic (not enough for matching coloured knickers though - or is that too much information?), I just can't get enough of the sugary hues.

Pairing with a simple string of pearls and my trusty go-to black bag and shoes combo, you've found me all set for an afternoon out. Please notice too, that I have lost (not actually lost) my coat in these photos. I'm not giving in to spring weather am I? I know, shock horror. You never know, I might even have ditched the tights by my next post! ;) x

  4. Oh yes, I had a lilac bedroom, filled with unicorns and ponies, no less. I then favoured deep purple in my more angst-ridden young teen years. I still have a definite soft spot for the colour, and your playsuit is gorgeous. x

  5. I had a lilac bedroom with a bubblegum pink carpet. I'd not be so embarrassed but I think I was 16 at the time.

  11. Lilac is such a great colour against a red lip - uber femine but also kind of sultry and sexy! We love it!

    Love the use of soft focus on your photos too Emily, it gives the look a kind of vintage, nostalgic vibe reminiscent of the cinematography in Richard Ayoade's Submarine!
