Purple Haze

I've been really good about my goal to shop the closet.  Just a few minor transgressions! Two of them are pictured in this photo.  I really, I mean really cannot resist playful items in purple.  It's my favorite color! These violet heels and this lavender top both hit me in my weak spot. But let me tell you, I live a life with no regrets! Love, love LOVE both items and I'm sure they will be staples in my wardrobe for seasons to come. So I am comfortable about it all.

I secretly wanted to be a pointy toe shoe person for a long time before I finally got myself this pair. Honestly, I wasn't convinced they were right for someone as petite as myself.  But then I realized, it's all about the attitude. The right confidence is all you need to make most any item you love look great on you.

It was love at first sight for me and this ruffly lavender top.  I'm a sucker for the short shorts / long top look and this tank is a flirty way to achieve that look. I may have taken the short shorts concept to a bit of an extreme here, but I like to push the envelope with that sort of thing. Black and leather balance the femininity of all that purple.

My dear husband was worried about that last picture.  He thought it needed editing.  Guess what? That's my real body. It's all mine and I love it.

Happy Thursday, everyone!
