Loving Purple

I didn't even realize it until I was uploading my pictures tonight, but apparently I have a thing for purple this week. Two days in a row now I've sported purple...and to top it off I'm starting to think I may need this in purple now too...since it is only $20...geez! I'm helping a friend find one of her own but I think I may have to snag one up for myself if I can find two!!
Today was only in the 70's...I loved it!!! I broke out the boots because I knew I'd be out and about tonight when it would be a little cooler...totally boot appropriate weather. I'm sure by the end of winter I will be SO OVER boots, but for now I'm loving the chance to wear them again.

Here's what I wore today:

-Dark Purple Open Cardigan-Gap Outlet (Fall 2010)--I know it's not showing up super purple in the picture, but it is!!
-Viscose Tank-J Crew (Spring 2010)
-Skinny Jeans-American Eagle
-Snakebite Belt-Anthropologie
-Kachiri Boots (Taupe)-Target
-Ring-Charlotte Russe
-Earrings/Bracelet-Old Navy

This is the first time I've worn these boots and I have to say, I love them! I am in love with the color...they're called taupe but they're sort of grayish-toned. They're very comfortable. I do need to get a protector on them though for when the rain starts up.

Like I said I've had purple on the brain this's yesterday's version:

-Purple Tiered Tank-Old Navy
-Striped Cardigan-Old Navy (Winter 2010)
-Matchstick Jeans-J Crew Outlet
-Wedge Sandals-Old Navy
-Earrings/Ring-Forever 21

Tomorrow I'm going to make a conscious effort to avoid purple...give another color a chance!

I didn't pick anything up from the Anthro sale this week (yet), but I did make a return to J Crew the other day and brought this home in it's place after it went on sale. It will go perfectly with this(in purple again--imagine that!) wrapped with a skinny gold belt. In my head it's super cute so hopefully it'll look cute in real life too! I've been eyeing this shirt ever since it came out a few months ago so I was excited to see it hit sale so soon. Some things go on sale so fast at J Crew while other things never seem to budge (like this). Grrrr...losing patience!

Well, I"m off to's almost midnight here on the west coast. Sweet dreams!

  3. Cute outfits, I'm loving all the purple on you! I also got that set the course cardi for $20 at anthro. It was just too good a deal to pass up!
