12 Sep Purple Spectrum
Let me start off my saying TGIF!! Today’s outfit was brought on by confusion. See, it can be 90 one day in Sept, then 75 the next, and lately it has mostly been hot. So, we went to lunch at a delicious place called 131 Main here in Lake Norman, NC. I wanted to introduce some fall-ish colors today with my attire, so here we are.
As I mentioned, it remains hot in Charlotte, NC until maybe the end of October, when it begins to get a little chilly. This is the time where it is hard to know what to wear, and one must just go by either sticking your head out the window, or relying on the weather forecast. Today is was in the mid 70s, when just yesterday it was 90. It probably will be in the 80s for a bit.
I have to say Fall is my favorite season, and this was the requirement when we moved here from Pittsburgh. No winter, but we wanted a change in seasons, and we do get that here, albeit a bit later than my parents do in the ‘Burg. So, the best I did was put this little purple shrug I purchased from Poshmark, ( where there are great deals to be had) over my purple and plum dotted dress from Ann Taylor. Again, if one can wear clothing that is as comfortable as pajamas, it is a WIN in my book! This dress is that .I liked the ruching on the sides for more shape, but it was the colors that attracted me. I do beleive my favorite color is red, but I also really love purple. Shades of purple. The purple family. The wide spectrum of purples. Ok, you get the point.
So, my little nod to the shade and the season, is mixing various purple colors in this outfit, and accessories. Now, I bring your attention to the food. Can’t take your eyes off my salad to look at my outfit! Well, I will tell you why. It had grilled salmon eggs, mushrooms, greens, and THE best cornbread croutons you could get anywhere from here to the south of the Mississippi! ( I really dont know if they make em there, thought it sounded good), and I HAD to go with the theme of dark purples, by ordering a fantastic Malbec that went down smoothly and tasted so good after months of the requisite Pinot Grigio, that I enjoy but makes you want to drink it down like water.
Enjoy your weekend!!
p.S. I also painted my nails in Essie’s Lacey Not Racy vintage burgundy color.
