I am so excited to show off all the awesome finds I brought back from Memphis with me! It will probably take months, but that, it seems to me, is the best kind of problem to have! So, without further ado, here is a color blocked look I put together for a breezy Sunday afternoon.
You can believe your eyes, reader, for it is true: I am now in possession of purple jeans!! My life is complete! I found these at Goodwill in Memphis, and they fit like a glove. Hurray! I am also now the proud owner of red heels. I have been looking for shoes like these for ages, and I finally found them at City Thrift in Memphis. The best part is that they are so wonderfully comfortable. The soles have this cushiony padding that makes me feel like I’m not wearing heels at all. Good job, shoe makers of the 80s!
When I saw this pink silk blouse on the rack, I fell in love with it. I adore all the delicate embroidery and the open part at the top, to say nothing of the adorable little necktie. Although Valentine’s Day is behind us, I was still thinking of pink and red, so I put on these earrings that one friend of mine said could double as tongue depressors, and reached for my brightest red lipstick. Fun!
Eric’s sweet parents gave me this pretty purple bracelet, and I wear it all the time. I love the colors, and I love the way it feels on my wrist. In this picture you can also see the pretty wrist detailing on the blouse. I didn’t even notice it until I put it on, but it’s the blouse that keeps on giving! (And you can also see my latest battle scar from the Microplane grater–I must develop more hand-eye coordination!)
I had so much fun wearing this outfit. There’s nothing better than bright colors, especially when they’re your favorite ones! And, as always, a huge thanks to my wonderful husband, who takes these lovely pictures. It isn’t hard to smile when I’m looking at him. Not at all!
