Purple Week Day #1

As I was selecting outfits on Sunday, I noticed that my first 3 had purple in them. Well, far be it from me to ignore that, so I swapped out my fourth outfit to something with purple. I don't usually plan my casual Friday outfits in advance, so I only pick out four outfits each Sunday. But I know I've got a couple of choices to stick with the purple theme come Friday. And I told some coworkers that it's purple week and I think they are going to throw on some purple tomorrow too. Yay! I love a good community play-along event.

I had to run home in the morning to meet the plumber. I hate leaving work in the middle of the day, bu it meant I got some pics in the natural light. Always a plus.

What I Wore While the Plumber Fixed 2 Leaky Faucets:

Hi, I'm a (relatively) new reader. I love all your thrift store finds... How often do you go thrifting?

Kari said...

I absolutely love this outfit - the pattern of the jacket and tights go beautifully together with the solid pieces, and I love your thrifted necklace!

Fiona said...

This outfit is so chic on you, and especially so in the picture with your scarf draped and holding your handbag. Fabulous!

GeminiJulia said...

Oooh-great outfit! Are those tights from LB a recent purchase? If so, I might need to invest...

I too have been wearing a lot of purple lately. I can't wait to see the rest of the purple treats you will unveil this week.

Tina, RE: your dancing comment, I'm actually pretty uncoordinated myself. You might just give Irish Dance a try if you've always wanted to do it - I haven't done it myself, but it's somewhat similar to Scottish Country Dance and tends to also have a friendly, close-knit crowd.

Very classy! And yet still fun!

Shuttsie - Welcome to the blog! I would say I go thrifting about every 10 days or so. Some weeks I go twice, and sometimes I don't go at all for a few weeks. There is a Goodwill very close to my house, and I often pop in there for 15 minutes on my way home from work. A lot of times I leave empty handed, but over time I find good things.

Kari - thanks!

Fiona - thanks! I felt very posh with my scarf on. :)

Julia - I got them at the Lane Bryant outlet store in Houston in October. I don't know if they have them in the regular LB stores. I know they don't have them online.

Dr. Da - thanks! I'm going to check out your blog right now.

Em - thanks!
