OOTD: Violet, Violet and More Violet

I don't know why, but violet sounds so much more elegant than purple. Maybe because I associated purple with a certain dinosaur. Or maybe because purple reminds me of grape flavored things and I don't like grape flavored things. Artificially flavored, I mean. Because grapes themselves are delicious and so are their liquid, fermented version. (Eh? Ehhhh?)

In any case, I went with tone on tone for today's clothing selection. The sweater on the sweater skirt was kinda bulky, but it created an hour glass shape, so I guess I'm ok with it. Yay for larger than normal hips to create a small waist!

It's getting all chilly up in here, so warmth is of utmost importance!  That and I love the season where you can layer everything -- which is pretty much the next 6 months in the Bay Area since we don't get snow or anything.  Boo on lack of snow, but yay on not having to punch your iced over car just to get inside in subzero weather.  Seriously, I do NOT miss that.  
Anyway, thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love this outfit! The pink belt is the perfect touch.

  2. I think this is one of my favorite outfits you have worn!!! That skirt is so seriously cute ;)

  3. @Kristen - Thanks and welcome back! Seems like you had a fantastic wedding, hope it was as amazing (or more so) than it looked!

    @Mommyblogger - oh wow -- thank you! I usually tuck shirts into skirts so this is great feedback.
