The Purple Top

The Scoop

I am a fun girl at heart. I love to laugh and play. If I don’t put some fun into my day I feel low. Life is just too short not to smile and feel joy. And also to be eternally grateful for good fortune. Because “But for the grace of God, there go I.” It’s hard lately. I am so sad for all the children and parents on the border being caged and treated less humane than dogs. I just think about someone taking my sons away from me when they were young. I know I would have curled up and died. I guess the only reason to keep going would be the hope you would be reunited. My heart breaks for these people who only want to make a better life for themselves and their families. Just like all our immigrant ancestors.

My Look

Here I am wearing a fabulous purple top that has a tie in the front and is really long in the back. I love the deep purple look and think this will be the color I add to my closet this fall. I paired it with a pair of white Levis that are at least ten years old and a pair of white sandals. I got my fun bag at a thrift shop a few years ago and use it every summer. My necklace was bought at a consignment shop a few years ago. And my bracelet is from Chico’s a few years ago. I had fun mixing old, new and consigned or thrifted items for this look!

I’m linking same top, same sandals and similar jeans and fun bag.

The Fun Part

I always have fun putting together a look and then taking silly pictures. It is quite a workout running and trying to pose in 10 seconds before the camera clicks. Over time I have become less worried about how the pictures turn out and use the good, the bad and the darn right silly.

This shoot was tricky because I didn’t have my contact in and I had to keep taking my glasses off and on. But it was just that much more of a challenge and fun!
