I’m so excited that today we honor one of my favorite colors, and my favorite causes. March 26th is Purple Day– a globally-recognized day of epilepsy awareness. So while you peruse some of these lavender goodies, be sure you also take a second to read these safety tips, goodness forbid you’re ever in a situation and witness a person having a seizure!
As far as life mottos go, I say this is a pretty good one. I am fully obsessed with this cosmetic bag-turned-clutch courtesy of Kate Spade New York’s surprise friends and family sale a few weeks ago. It has a nice little way of reminding me to not always play by the rules. Savor life’s sweetest moments. Things like that.

I wore this dress exactly one year ago on my graduation day. It’s amazing to think about how much has changed over the past year. And how much is exactly the same. Time + life are funny little things, ya know?
Ok and all that being said, as the daughter of an OSU alum I do need to give a big HELL YES to the Buckeyes on crushing Cinci last night :) I usually only pay attention to Ohio State football, but this year I think that deserves a change.
I’ll tell you one thing: celebs seem to love it. In addition to Jessica Alba, Rhianna, Kim Kardashian, Cheryl Cole, and Camilla Belle have all been seen sporting this trend. Vogue and Marie Claire have also showcased it on recent covers.
To be honest, I didn’t love it at first. But when I found this purple skirt with orange details on sale for $30 at Free People, and I knew I had this tank from Anthropologie in burnt orange sitting in a drawer and only belonging to one other outfit, I thought, ok I can give this trend a try.
I complemented it with gold jewelry and black crochet TOMS to bring together the other black details in the skirt. The thing about this combo is the colors are so striking on their own, so I wouldn’t try to add a third unless it’s a neutral or black. There are also some specks of turquoise in the skirt, but I found that adding any more brights or bolds in shoes or accessories would be pushing it. After all, I’m still new to this color thing!
What do you think of purple and orange together? What do you think the next bold-color pairing trend will be– or better yet, what are you hoping it will be?
