Purple is one of my favourite colours. I hadn't thought of pairing it with yellow...and I LOVE it. The purple leggings with the yellow shoes look tres chic! :)

Elle said...

What a fun post! I love yellow, specifically that mustardy/brown kind of yellow, but my complexion looks terrible with yellow so I tend to stay away from it altogether...

Leah said...

Oh love those yellow rubber boots! But all these pics are so dreamy!

Well you know I love the yellow, and that picture of the bike with the petals stuck to the tires, has me squealing. It makes me think of Trish! I have missed you, trying to get caught up!

Indie.Tea said...

I never realized that yellow and purple could look so nice together. How lovely!

Kimmy said...

Purple is such a regal color and you can never go wrong with yellow wellies!
You have lovely taste, cheers!

Taj Acosta said...

Girrrrl this combo goes waayyy back with me! My fav color ever is purple and then I became a Husky at the UofW and purple and yellow are our colors! Heaven for me! It was destiny! I'll digress. Love it!! hugs

Mackenzie {Design Darling} said...

what a wild color combo — so pretty and so full of contrast! lovely images; i adore the one of the flowers on the bicycle wheel :)

Cornflake said...

That first picture is adorable! I don't have wellies in Australia (don't really need them although the other month of non stop rain made a good case for them!)otherwise I'd be wearing some at my local beach! :-)

For a moment I thought the third photo was you as she looks a little Kirsten Dunst!

Hope you're having a great week.x

Monica from Hola!design said...

Beautiful! yellow is such a happy color, and next to purple looks so vibrant, definitely makes an impact.
I'll keep this color combo in mind for design projects, I really liked it.

Hey Miss Poppie!
Great color combination!
A mysterious color, purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality.
Yellow is sunshine.
I always like to find the meaning of colors, I think it is so intersting!
Hope you are having a wonderful week so far!
Hugs and smoochies

Hey sweetheart! WOW from the looks of this comment section there are a LOT of fans of your purple and yellow combinations! I am so tickled with this post, you are so uber-creative with a brilliant eye for photography! Now! Onto my fave photos: The purple tights and yellow shoes, yes yes yes, I would totally wear that, the blonde in the lavender gown in the field...DREAMY! The purple shoes in the hands of the person strolling the beach, absolute heaven. Of course I adore the blossom petals on the tires of the bike, that's really what they look like in D.C. during Cherry Blossom festival! :)

Glad you saw I tagged you sweetie, you deserve a million more awards! xoxox Hugs!!
