It's Not Easy Being A Purple Dinosaur...

For some reason, I feel like I am forgetting how to dress up for work.  I have been focusing on putting together casual looks and when I had to get dressed for work this morning, I was blank!




Skirt/Cardigan-LOFT/Flats-Naturalizer/Jewelry-F21, Black Sheep

Yep...I have am sporting a lot of purple today.  I started with the skirt...when I bought it, I thought is was purple...but, I brought it home and realized it was brown...oh well...I will consider it brople!!!
Just bought this cardi and since I thrive on instant gratification...I wanted to wear it NOW!  Grabbed this tank...another shade of purple and got dressed.  Since my knees are a big mess of pain and I have to wear flats for a while, I figured since I already looked like Barney the Dinosaur had barfed on me,  I would finish off today's look with purple flats.  





Dress, Flats-Target/Jewelry-F21, Black Sheep, Target, BR

This outfit screams..."I'm tired, hot and easy..."  Me...I am definitely tired...when am I not.  Hot...well it has been in the 90's here in Chicago...I am drenched in sweat just breathing.  Easy...definitely not.  Unfortunately things are never usually easy with me...well, except this outfit!!

Ooh I am loving that dress!
And I hate when things look like one color in the store then you take it home and its different...that happened to me with a blazer once

I can totally see myself in that sweet little dress with the braided belt and cute peep toe flats! I love it!

I'd think that if you ever have trouble getting dressed, you could just flip through all your photos for inspiration. But I know that's easier said than done - I hate those mornings when I have no idea what to wear.

I love your purple in the first outfit! I actually have that cardigan (of course), and hadn't thought to pair it with a dark shade of purple like that - I've thus far only worn it with other pinks (which I might post, since I just remembered I have pictures of that lying around).

Love your nail polish too!

I love these outfits!! The purple really looks good together - and you have fabulous bracelets! The heat is killing me too. I'm just grabbing whatever is easy (usually another dress) and hoping I stay semi-cool.

You're collection of accessories is astounding. The black and white necklace you're wearing in your first outfit is such a fun piece!

Don't worry, I think the awesome skirt in the first outfit keeps you from looking like Barney. But if you start singing about how you love me, we may have to talk ;)
