After a holiday of red, white and blue, I started thinking about colors. Not just holiday colors or traditional colors – but more in general. For example, why do I feel lighter and a bit more carefree when I wear yellow? Or when I wear a black dress to work, where does that sense of power come from? And of course, why does red lipstick seem to instantly make everything seem a better? So today I thought I’d offer another color: Purple. Purple does happen to be my favorite color, however I haven’t worn purple in quite some time. So for a purple outfit for a gorgeous post-holiday sunny day, I went with something simple, elegant, with just enough shine to keep that skip in my step!
