50 Shades of Purple

Jacket: c/o Sammydress   Sweater & Dress: thrifted   Tights: Target   Litas: c/o Style Recognized   Necklace: c/o Romwe via latexfashion


It is ridiculously difficult to find a time during the day to get outfit photos. Daylight savings time has screwed my schedule up! However, in the dying light of the day, Kirsten and I managed to race over to our old, favorite haunt (remember these railroad tracks?) and took some pictures.
I actually wore this for a coffee date (I know, I have a lot of get togethers centered around caffeine, don't I?) with the girls. It was such a good night spent with old friends and just reconnecting.
Check out how much purple I'm wearing - it's head to toe basically, only broken up by bits of brown here and there. And although I'm wearing only a dress with tights, I felt perfectly toasty with my knit sweater and new cozy jacket from Sammydress! It's got a fur lining on the inside that keeps things plenty snuggly and warm. Which is amazing for me - during winter my general body heat is...well, freezing. 
And remember these Litas?? I forgot how much I absolutely adore them. Definitely the most amazing heeled pair of shoes I own. 5 inches and I swear I can skip in them. You really do get what you pay for. I'd love to own more Litas, but the only reason I even have these is because I was lucky enough to win them in a giveaway. 
So I was driving to Kirsten's house earlier this week, and I distracted by Christmas decorations out on not one, but two houses already. And I mean they had decked. the. halls. It started the festive holiday buzz inside me,  and I've got this ridiculous excitement built up inside me. 
It also got my wheels turning...what are some good Christmas gifts to get?
I really like doing small, meaningful ones too, so I'm going to have to brainstorm over this, but have any suggestions? Specifically, for a significant other? Aha, I need some ideas to get me started!

Your shoes look perfect for the winter, so pretty but warm too! Daylight saving is totally messing with my outfit posts too, grr.

Rory said...

I am SOOOOO excited for christmas too! Its my favorite time of the year-i love the buzz, the decorations, being with my family, getting presents, eating cookies---ALL OF IT! :) oooo i dont know what you should get him! Hmmm....im not very good at coming up with gifts ahah!
I do very much love your outfit. Those Lita's are sure something! I forgot about 'em too! haha :) Daylight savings has screwed me too. I dont get home from school until 5 and the sun is gone by 5:30...ughhhhh! PLus what little light is left isnt even worth it. I have taken to saving the outfits I've worn during the week and recreating them for super quick snaps on the weekend. It's funny to run inside and change real quick but I just can't do it during the week so I have to! How have you been doing it??

I love all the purple in this outfit, especially that sweater! And woah that cardigan does look warm, especially with the fur lining. haha I get cold super easily too. Those Litas are such a nice neutral color, it looks amazing with the burgundy tights~! YAY i'm so excited for Christmas too, although I haven't seen any decorations yet. But hopefully I will soon!

Grrr, daylight savings is the worst, as if we aren't losing our light at a quicker pace, now we have to lose an extra hour of it during the evening? Genius idea. :P

However, I love your outfit! that sweater looks SO soft and comfy and I love the mix of it with the floral dress, such a cute mix!

I love how you're wearing a sweater over that dress! What a good way to stay toasty. You look so lovely in purple, my sweet! <3

And oh gosh, I know how you feel about the holidays, Linda! I AM SO READY TO DECORATE AND BAKE AND PUT UP LIGHTS AND SING CHRISTMAS MUSIC AND SMELL PINECONES AND *faints*

sip-n-wear said...

i love layering cozy sweaters over summer dresses! great job with layering! and Christmas shopping!?!? ahhhh so not ready!!!

Dominika said...

I absolutely love this outfit, your dress reminds me of the one from Lana Del Rey's H&M collection... Also, how I wish I had some Litas, they seem to be perfect fall shoes. I have currently been on the lookout for some heeled, yet comfortable ones. :)
And as for Christmas gift, I wish I could help you, but I've always had a problem with that... I usually end up buying some perfumes or jewellery if it's a present for my mom. I could really use some advice as well. :)

LOVE this outfit. I really like how you "warmed up" all those "cooler" colors with your tights and boots (if that makes sense). This photo location is great. I have been having such a hard time during the work week finding picture taking time, its the worst!
Hope you're having a great day!

Ugh, I agree, because of the seasons changing and the daylights savings it's gotten harder for me to catch the right time before the sun sets to take my photos since I'm pretty busy during the day.... but I love this outfit especially the cozy sweater, perfect for this weather! It also makes me regret selling my taupe Litas :( Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

I'm glad I got to discover your's! I'm your newest follower as well!
