OOTD- All In the Family





I don't know if I should admit this, but I read Teen Vogue despite being out of my teens for about (oh, let's not calculate the real amount) what feels like a million years ago. But I can rarely afford what's in the grown-up version of Vogue, so the teen version offers some things that are a bit more attainable (sometimes) to my paycheck. There was an editorial in it months ago that I still remember to this day and tore out as inspiration of a model wearing an outfit with all shades of purple. Although, I'm not the matchy-matchy type, I got dressed with shades of purple and pink in my mind and created an outfit that I really like. Now, I'm not ready for shoes, bag and make-up to match, but baby steps are sometimes necessary when trying out something new. Hey, I took a step further...my toenails are pink!!! 

Do you still read teen magazines as a bona fide adult? Oh, and since I'm confessing, I still flip through Seventeen magazine too.

Outfit Details:
Gray polka dot cardigan- Old Navy (cute alternative here, chambray alternative here, alternative top version here, cool tee alternative here)
Lilac scoopneck tee and pencil skirt in bright dahlia- J. Crew (similar tee available here) (similar color skirt in  knit jersey here, warmer weather version of skirt in lots of other fun colors here)
Black double-buckle belt- Target (similar belt here)
White handbag- Forever 21 (similar here and designer version here)
Black laced wedges- Chinese Laundry "Dantie" (taupe version in limited sizes on sale here, limited sizes in black here, similar shoe in black available here)

  4. Love this outfit - I am really into purple pencil skirts right now. Those shoes give it just the right amount of edge/sex appeal too!

  6. I like your mix of pink, purple, grey, and white. You look quite ladylike!

    I read Teen Vogue all the time in college, mostly for the clothes, but also because it easily fits into a purse.
