Seeing Purple...

Of course, while "grocery" shopping at Target the other day I came upon a coupon on my Cartwheel app for 25% off select Women's Scarves (sorry, the offer expired yesterday - bad timing on my part).  Well, can't pass up on an offer like that, so I headed to the accessories department.  As soon as I saw this scarf I knew it was mine.  I love the colors - bright, cheery, somewhat tropical...all good, happy things.  In my basket it went!  Of course you can wear this particular scarf with many color options (i.e. white, mint, navy, khaki, olive, chambray/denim), but all I see in my head is Purple!

Guess what I don't have a lot of in terms of color in my closet...purple!  How can I love a color so much & yet have very few purple items?  Hm...anyway, noted & will be on the look out to pump up the purple in my closet soon.  In the mean time, if I did have lots of purple options, I would wear this scarf something like these options...

Purple with Neon

Gap blue dress / American Eagle Outfitters white tank / J.Crew chino shorts / LOFT studded t strap sandal / Kendra Scott earrings / Forever 21 rhinestone jewelry / Forever 21 plus size bangle / Floral scarve

I'm definitely admiring the Purple Striped Maxi from the Gap shown here.  I'll be watching for that to go on sale for sure!  Coincidentally, they are running a sale June 11-15th so check it out for sure!  Also, how fantastic are those Kendra Scott earrings?!

Purple with Navy

Mossimo dress / Banana Republic skinny ankle pants / Dorothy Perkins navy purse / Stella Dot rose gold ring / Blu Bijoux turquoise earrings / Xhilaration rhinestone jewelry / Floral scarve

Of course I'm also loving this lavender dress from Target (not sold in stores, but on sale right now for $18).  The ankle pants from Banana Republic are a great, classic option.  Can you really have too many colored skinnies??  I think not...

If I end up with any of these specific items I'll report back.  The top 2 on my watch list are the 2 dresses.  You can also follow me on Instagram if you want to see how I do end up wearing the new Scarf (minus the purple for now)...I post more daily outfits there :-)

  1. Haha I grocery shop at Target too, it gets me every time! I LOVE your picks, I love purple but don't have a lot either. I'm really loving those Kendra Scott earrings :)

  2. Oh Target, you temptress! Seriously though, I absolutely love that shorts outfit set. I never wear scarves once the temps go beyond 78 degrees, but this is really making me want to try it. I love the AE tank you chose and of course, the chino shorts. :) Thanks for reminding me that I don't have them in lavender!
