Purple Rain

It was a very rainy day. Not an ideal day to be out and about, but my son had an appointment with the eye doctor, so duty called. He needs glasses, and we had fun picking them out. We ended up going with the first pair I picked up. I think I'm a pretty good glasses-picker. He looks so good in them! On the way to the doctor, he said out of the blue, "When I grow up and get a wife, I'm gonna put a secret code on the computer so she can't shop." Smart kid, that one. LOL!

I'm stepping out of my my usual fashion box today and wearing purple tights! I ordered these from The Limited last week and had no idea what I was going to wear with them. As I stood in my closet this morning half asleep, the Southward Stop Shirtdress passed before my groggy eyes. A match made in fashion heaven! The rest is history.

The rain and lack of light forced us inside for pictures today. My dear husband, I love him and he takes fantastic pictures outside, but inside - not so much. He was actually trying to give me some direction today for some strange reason. I think being inside made him feel more powerful or something. Anyway, everything he told me to do ended up looking crazy. I told him he needed to stick with taking the pictures and let me handle the posing. I guess I can't complain, though. He is sweet to take my pictures everyday. There are not alot of picturesque places in my house, so I ended up taking most of them on this bench in my bedroom. Well, I'm gonna go crash on the couch and eat some Heath Bar ice cream. Have a good night!

  1. So so pretty, I really like this combo and love how the shoes look with colored tights!

  2. I love that sweater with the dress...the tights with the dress...the belt with the dress...the shoes with the dress. The whole outfit is perfection. Good job!

  3. What a great outfit! The tights offset both the shoes and the dress wonderfully! Perfect color!

  4. Yay for purple tights, they look fab! I wore my SS dress yesterday, wasn't quite brave enough to break out my purple tights yet though!

    I love the shots in front of your picture on the wall with the trees & pathway, a little bit of outside inspiration inside :)

  5. Those are great color combinations and that's another great belt choice for the dress. I love when I see pretty outfits like this because they get my mind working and thinking about how I can recreate it!! Thank you!

  6. You are making me want purple tights! Love this look!

  7. Love the purple tights, what a perfect fall outfit!

    Cindi: Aww...thanks girl!

    Ady: Thank you, I wasn't sure about the shoes at first.

    Louise: Thanks! I felt a little insecure about the purple tights, but I went for it. The shots in front of the picture were my husband's idea, so I'll let him know you like it.
