an outfit post: purple passion

It appears as though purple might just be my new favorite color. Nearly half of the recently-added items to my wardrobe are violet hues. What can I say? I just love looking regal. And this fantastic J.Crew skirt (which is way cheaper in store people!) made me feel like the most glamorous girl on the block.

Also can we talk about this Lo & Sons bag for a second? It has seriously saved my life. I feel a million times more organized since everything has a place in here. My train pass and my work swipe are always in easy reach; my keys have a home; when I tote in my laptop it has a safe space; heck, even my iPad has its own special slot. It's safe to say I'm seriously obsessed, and now I'm looking into getting another one.

 Oh, and this new necklace? After lots of hmming and hawing, I pulled the trigger and ordered myself a Spike the Punch necklace. At first, I was leaning toward the Rainey, but I soon realized the color combination of the Pretty Shiney Sparkly Necklace was perfect for me.
And can I just say, wearing sleeveless tops to the office is a tricky game. I was sweating on my way to work since it's so damn hot here, but then I found myself shivering an hour later. Thanks, overpowering air conditioner. Guess it's time to start packing sweaters into my tote in the morning.

  3. Love that color! Its a great shade on you and is perfect for summer. The bag is also wonderful, I'm in favor of large purses because I like to have everything handy in one place for work.
