outfit: colors and views

First things first, we’re settling in to our new apartment, and it is *magic*. This is our view at night:

Also, I went for a run the other night, and it was perfect – I was so completely reminded of what made me fall in love with this city, and I’m thrilled to be back in the heart of it. Just thrilled!

On to the outfit! During Me-Made-May I used one necklace in particular a whole lot. I got it from John before we were even dating, so it’s obviously special! It sits a little high on the neck, and I’ve found I don’t like that with a lot of the necklines I tend to wear (like low scoop necks, or deep v necks), but with the addition of an extra chain, it’s just right!

I really love the color of this necklace, and I’ve been loving pairing it with a bit more unexpected colors, like maroon, or grassy green, and today, olive yellow and a dusty lavender (or is it wisteria? I should add browsing wikipedia for colors as one of my favorite pasttimes).

The same color turns up in all sorts of places, like this chair – with a kimono draped on it at the moment (this is a random picture that happened while I was trying to take a picture of myself, but it fit right in today!):

And let us not forget nail polish, which is also now decorating my housekey:

Love that color. On a side note, I’m getting on very nicely with my fancy new phone. So much that I used the silly thing to take all these photos! I’m not really planning on making that the rule, but between not sharing things and sharing things with smartphone pictures, the blurry fake-old stuff wins. And that’s ok.
