1. Purple Chic.

    As we all know, I love patterns and prints, and mixing them with a texture, such as this tweed skirt and tweed/boucle shoes, is an added bonus! The blouse is actually sleeveless, so I added a matching cardigan to give it a twinset look appropriate for work. I added a belt because i belt everything (it accentuates my waist!), and I did matching earrings and bracelets to complete the look. A necklace would have competed with the cool collar, so I opted for matching earrings. I chose a dark red bag to pick up the red in the blouse because I liked the contrast of red and purple. All done!
