Sunnies: Gucci (option) | Scarf: Express (option) | Jacket: JCrew Factory (similar) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (smaller version HERE) (shop other "Love" style bags HERE) | Sweater: Banana Republic | Lace trim tank: Grace and Lace (in taupe) | Bottoms: Express (option) | Booties: Me Too

I need more purple in my life. I just do. I always forget how much I love it until I wear it again. I just never think to buy it or look for it. But last week when I was randomly shopping New Year's sales, I found this jumbo Rebecca Minkoff bag for 60% off. The price was unbeatable and the color was so saturated and gorgeous. I could not resist it. It showed up this weekend and I immediately had to wear it. That's when I rediscovered these purple booties in my closet. Whoops! But they're gorgeous, too!

This outfit formula is super similar to the one I posted last week. Pullover sweater. Lace peeking out from underneath. Field jacket. Scarf. Sorry for being a repeat offender, but when the outfit works, there's no reason to reinvent the wheel, you know? This is the first time I've tried the Grace and Lace extender, and I gotta say, I'm quite the fan. It's very comfortable, and even more layering friendly than my lace tunic I was wearing last week

This palette just makes me all sorts of happy!



  1. I love your purples. How fun are those boots? {Stopping by from WIW by The Pleated Poppy.}

  2. This outfit is perfection. I love purple on you! And I'm also pretty envious of that bag you scored for such a deal!

  3. That bag is stunning, I love this extender so cute.


  4. I agree with you on purple! It's my favorite color but I don't wear it all that much! I think it just hasn't been the "it" color in fashion for awhile and there aren't as many good options to choose from. But that bag is definitely a good option! I really love the way these colors blend!

  5. Love this outfit Carylee! Purple is one of my favorite colors too. And if I could wear heels, I'd be all over those booties; they are the bomb! Totally jealous of your amazing deal on the purse too!

  6. Wow, I would have had to buy it at that price too! Major score. You are so right, I forget about purple too, but I always like it when I wear it. Loving your combo.

  7. Loving the pops of purple in these outfits! I am in LOVE with your bag and your lace trim tank under your sweater is such a great detail!!
