The best purple of all

From Al: I saw these photos on Alison‘s flickr stream and fell in LOVE with the colors and the outfit. It was time for another update! Welcome back, Alison!

Dress: ModCloth (www.modcloth.com)
Tights: Eddie Bauer outlet
Scarf: gift from my grandma
Long sleeved shirt: Penney’s. About a decade ago.
Boots: Famous Footwear

Jeez, give a girl a shining moment on a style blog and it goes directly to her head! She does a crazy thing like going out to buy tights. Tights, I tell you, with the intention of making my summer dresses push into the colder temperatures. With the intention of pairing them with boots. With the intention of creating outfits. Holy hannah.

 

I’m a 365er and I’m in my second year. So, what that means, sans code, is that since January 2010 I have taken at least one photo a day. It’s a lot of photos. (To be completely honest, I took Jan-Mar 2011 off because I wasn’t sure I wanted to head into year two, but I missed it, and missed it bad. So technically year two is running from April through the end of March. More than you cared to know, I’m sure.) I don’t do a whole lot of self portraits because they always feel so self indulgent, so me-focused, so awkward. But with this infinitely thought out outfit and the courage from some dear online friends across the globe, I headed over to the bike path near our home, set up the tripod, and took to snapping. I do really love this dress, and an excuse to push it past August is well worth a day in tights for me.
