Hi everyone! Today is Friday, and I’m so excited to be participating in my first link up with “a year of color”. Each month there is a different color theme and this month the color is purple. Naturally, I wanted to do an outfit post with the color purple, but when I went to my closet, I realized that purple is a color that my closet is lacking in. I’m not really sure why. I like the color purple, but sometimes I think it gets overshadowed by pink.
I remembered that I had one purple dress hanging in my closet. It was actually a $3 thrift store find from the Salvation Army. It’s an empire waist dress from Forever 21. I actually bought this dress with the intention of wearing it one day as a maternity dress, but since Jack was born in the winter, I never got the chance to wear it with my baby bump. However, I did get a lot of use out of it last summer when I was nursing. That’s one thing that I love about an empire waist dress, it’s so versatile and can be worn during every stage of motherhood. I also love the shade of purple that this dress is. It’s such a rich color and perfect for summer or year-round. I styled my dress with my denim jacket, cognac tote purse, and wedge sandals.
I found some really cute purple dresses on Amazon. They are defiantly worth checking out, especially since they are all under $30!!
