Today's Everyday Fashion: Purple Prints

I'm normally not a prints girl, but lately I'm so drawn to them! Today, I show you two looks with my latest find at T.J. Maxx (I won a $500 gift card there recently, totally unrelated to the blog). I just couldn't resist the colorful pattern of this shirt, especially since it goes perfectly with this purple cardigan!

Cardigan: Banana Republic, $12
Shirt: TJ Maxx, $15
Necklace: Stella & Dot, c/o Lori McMinn

  1. Love the outfits! And loooove the cardigan and printed shirt!

  2. Love both looks. I think prints are so underrated. And I like your 2 looks :)

  3. Looks great. I adore print and color!

  4. I love this! Its one of my favorite of yours! I am a huge fan of color!

  5. What is the brand of the top? What an awesome find!!

  6. I really like both looks! Possibly the khaki version best! Both shoes are great and I feel like staples for every closet.

    Have you heard of Kendi's 30 for 30 challenge? I am signed up. You should join! It's right up your alley!


  7. I'm a huge print-lover! I love it both ways, but I think the tucked in one is my favorite~ it feels so modern and fresh.

  9. Thanks everyone!!

    Shelley, the tag says Agora.

    Katelyn, I've seen challenges like that before and I honestly just can't get behind them. I really want to make getting dressed a more positive experience and the idea of only having 30 items makes me so nervous!! It's like packing for a month-long trip, and I HATE packing. I of course totally support the idea of not shopping for a month and focusing on what's already your closet, but I think that choosing 15 items that you never wear and them making yourself wear them that month would be a lot more productive (and less stressful!). :-)

  10. Cute Outfit.

    I was think of doing the 30 for 30 and I told myself no b/c I just got done doing a challenge.

  11. thats so exciting that you won that gift card. its like a mini shopping spree! i like the pants version better but the capris are still cute.

  12. LOVE this outfit! That top is gorgeous!

  13. I love both outfits!! The cardigan and blouse look fabulous together :)

  14. J can you do a feature on what to wear to holiday work parties? I am always over analyzing if it's ok to be all dolled up or not.

  15. Anonymous, I recently posted 4 looks for winter weddings. I would totally rock any of those 4 to a holiday work party. Of course, it depends on the party and where it is held. My husband's company does this huge thing with a DJ and whatnot, but if you're just hanging around the office I would go with rich holiday fabrics (sequins, velvet, lace) in an office appropriate look - pencil skirt, cardigan, tights.
