The Color Purple
This post is not about that movie where Oprah was nominated for an Oscar. No, this post is about my current obsession with the color purple. I used to hate purple but for some reason, I'm into it right now. Maybe it's the fall weather...I can't get enough.
It all started with a pair of purple tights. I was at Macy's a couple weeks ago and saw these bright purple tights. I had nothing to put them with but I bought them anyway and started my search for a cute church outfit.
I ended up with the dress (pictured above) from Dillard's and cropped sweater from Charlotte Russe (don't judge...cropped purple sweaters are hard to find) Forgive me for my awkward poses...now you see why Barbazon never came calling
But when I tried on the outfit with the purple tights, Luke said "Why do you have on a Halloween outfit mom?" I knew the tights were too much. Of course, it looks best with bare legs.
Black tights are okay too for fall:
So I put the purple tights with a black pencil skirt and purple tank (also purchased at Dillard's). What do you think? Is it too crazy for church? (Sammie was my photographer and cut off my legs):
I'm not that conservative in what I wear as long as it is dressy...don't get me started about t-shirts and flip flops at church!
And when this line goes on sale at Janie and Jack..I'm totally picking up the bubble skirt, top and shoes for Sammie so we can coordinate:
Oh, and I found this handbag in the back of my closet that was a free gift from Lancome a couple years ago...I am going to be so matchy-matchy!:
Does anyone else out there where colored tights to work or church? Do you like bare legs or black tights for my law school reunion with the dress? I want to look hot but lawyerly....but not too lawyerly or I would be wearing a suit.
