Daily MelWear: Red and Purple

I have to be honest...the red and purple combo scares me a little. It makes me think of the Red Hat Society and I'm just not there yet. However, I do kind of like the two colors together and figured I'd try it with this skirt. 

I wore this to church on Sunday since I figured the combo would be a little much for my office. I'd originally wanted to pair the skirt with my purple sleeveless top, but I wore that earlier in the week and hadn't done laundry yet. I'm not sure if the two satins are a little over the top together, but I went with it anyway. 

I actually napped in this outfit too. I was too exhausted to get changed. Rest assured, I did change before I went out that night, though. 

Hey, guess what?! I was featured on Kimberly's blog yesterday as part of her Prim & Prismatic series! Go check it out! 

And have a fabulous Tuesday!!!












 



Today's outfit:

  6. I might have switched out the top, but I think the skirt would be perfect for any ice cream getting, man-meeting, social event going there might have been!

  12. I like the colour combo but your boss will have a fit if you wear 2 shiny pieces together :)

    I am so thankful my dress code is mostly self imposed

  14. I think the colors came out great. I'm usually not a fan of purple and red, but I think the color tones matched up perfectly, and you didn't clutter more color into it. The black accessories are perfect.

  16. I also think of the Red Hat Society when I think of those two colors because the older women I used to work with were all members lol...but your top is a darker purple so it's all good :)

  18. I am also afraid of red and purple. Less so now than I used to be. For the past 4 years one of the 2 color combos for our bedroom is red and purple. (we have 2 comforters and 2 sets of sheets so sometimes that's not the combo. 1 comforter is white. the other is red. one set of sheets are purple and the other are red) My husband loves red and purple. I love the colors independently but am scared to put them together.
