Day Three: No Shopping Challenge
Perfectly Purple

I love to begin and end the day with purple! Especially a beautiful purple like the one in this blouse. I added this to my wardrobe last year. It is a Coldwater Creek, no-iron blouse with feminine touches on the sleeves. I highly recommend their no-iron line and they do have some incredible saturated colors.

It was perfect for another hot day in SA! I just let the scarf hang down the front to elongate and add some more beautiful colors. It has a deep brown in it, so I like to wear this with these brown slacks.

Detail is important!

Steve Madden Flats

Final touches are my gold Steve Madden flats and gold earrings which also bring a touch of red.

Remember, I am caring for my mother, who just asked me what I am doing…….

“I’m writing a blog.”

“A clog?? Yes, I was clogged today. I sat on the pot for hours just trying to get it going!”

(Sigh) Glad my outfit made me happy…it might be a stressful evening!

Love Her Blouse!

I have to add Gigi’s colorful knit top and her fashionable heels to my wish list. She found these heels at Marshall’s for only $20 and they make her over 50 legs look fierce.

These I love…..Marshall’s!

The other wish list item is this knit jacket the forever smiling Mrs. Joy is wearing. I love the slouchy pockets and her grey & black scheme. This outfit keeps her feeling and looking cool on our warm autumn days.

Jacket Make the Look


  1. Purple and Brown are one of my favorite combos.

    You better hope your mother doesn't figure out it's a "blog" you're writing and discover what you've told us about her — you'll be in trouble then!
