Purple Plaid & Mint

Posted on: August 3, 2015

I bought this top on clearance from JCP recently last month

because I needed more purple in my wardrobe, especially in lighter lavender shade. 

It was just $9.99 and is now sold out.


My first thoughts were to pair it with my mint necklace and pointed toe flats. 

I really love purple and greens together and these lighter shades of each feel like Summer.  

I couldn’t help instantly thinking of the versatility of this top and color combo..


My hair looks so red today…

I can’t remember where I bought this mint necklace,

but I think it was in Vegas from Charming Charlies. 


I am picturing the sleeves rolled down and the addition of my mint faux leather jacket, and Old Navy Pixie Pants tucked into black riding boots as a Fall/Winter version of this look.

I always think of 3 ways to wear a new item and with tops, I love to think of ways to wear it for multi seasons. 

There are so many ways to layer this for the cooler temps with cardigans or even a chunky pullover sweater, with just the collar and hem showing.  

I could easily see it paired with white bottoms for another Summer Option.  

I wish I was more disciplined, so I could stop purchasing new items and live up to my blog title and show the versatility of pieces.   My blog anniversary is coming up next month and perhaps I will wrap my brain around trying to be more focused on creating such a feature.  I would also like to do some great recipes that are keeping me on track with eating healthier. 

A lot to think about as I turn 50 and explore what to do with my blog next year. 

Dear Readers chime in and tell me what you would like to see?  


I am grateful that my migraine headache finally got better. 

I am grateful for a day alone ( no boys) with my daughter on her first day back and the wonderful conversations we had all day! . 

I am grateful that the boys were having a guy day in Richmond, moving most of my son’s things into his apartment and that doing it early means not dealing with the chaos of moving in during the busy time , a nightmare for a city college location. 

I am grateful for the quietness of the house, and the sweet moment of cooking and eating with just my daughter, a rare occasion .
