Purple all over

Sweater: Banana Republic (similar at Gap and here) (at Target,)

Button up: J.Crew (buy here, similar here)

Pants: Loft (great options here and here)

Shoes: Sole Society – no longer available 

Bag: c/o Handbag Haven  (nice option here)

I must have been craving purple today and wore the all purple items I own. Might as well, right? Right!

I’ve been eyeing this button up, well pink one really. It went on sale and the pink one sold out in my size. Purple eventually was marked down and when I received an email from J.Crew with subject line: “take an additional 30% off sales items” I knew this shirt had to be mine. Love me some J.Crew sales!

Have a fantastic Friday!

    Love all of the hints of purple!! Those shoes look great. I was eyeing them when they showed up on the website and was really tempted to get them. How do you find the comfort of Sole Society shoes?

    It's a lot of purple but just sort a wink at it instead of full-on. Love it! I've got purple nails at the moment 🙂

    Really, really cute outfit! I just discovered your blog through Pinterest. There was a pic pinned of your 2nd outfit from August 1, 2011 (with the striped shirt & yellow flats). I clicked on it because I have that Charlotte Russe necklace. Anyway, I'm so glad I clicked over because I just love your style! I flipped through some of your pages & your style is definitely "me!" I live where it snows too & am still learning how to dress for the weather (after oh, only 7 years!). Consider me your newest follower! :o)http://cairelchronicles.blogspot.com/

    I love the preppy touch that the checkered shirt gives and then the bag sets it off. Great outift.

    Thank you on your sweet comments girls :)@fshnonmymind – these ones are my first pair and they're kinda tight in toe area. I though about ordering .5 bigger but I think my heel would slip right out. Hope they'll "stretch" out a bit. @Christina – No, I've just seen it online. I really like my purple one :)@aradicia – I'll keep my eye out. 🙂 They definitely should make more of these pants, the cut is great and they're really comfy.
