what i’m wearing {purple dress and purple sweater}

September 5th | what I'm wearing

I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration.

This isn’t really the type of outfit where you can blend in. A purple dress and red mary janes are kind of a statement, I guess. And no less than three people told me I looked like Snow White. I didn’t know all I needed was dark hair, red lips and an animated outfit–and I’d be a princess for a day.

Purple dress, Target. Caridgan, JCrew. Polka dot tights, Target. Mary Janes, Poetic License. Scarf in my hair, thrifted. Petite Crest necklace, My shop.

I’m off to Hilton Head today for a retreat with {in}courage. I can’t tell you how excited I am! It’s a long way to travel, but the time together is sweet. And I didn’t pack any tights, since the weather calls for flip flops and sundresses. I can’t wait to share pics with you.

    Enjoy your retreat, that is such a good thing to do. I just launched a women’s creativity retreat for the Great Lakes region. We too hope to nourish women’s creative spirit! I imagine Hilton Head is amazingly nourishing!

    You look adorable…love clothes, all kinds of clothes. AND I totally get when you say “this makes me happy!” Like your red Mary Jane’s. I have a pair of flat red Mary Jane shoes…got a steal on them and they are BORNS…love them AND they make me SO happy when I wear them. Sometimes it really is just about the “little things” in life:)
