This most recent skirt from J. Crew is a good example of one of these new arrivals that has inspired me to put together an outfit. While the purple and blue pastel hues of the skirt could easily be construed as being strictly for spring, I'm trying to see if these brighter work tones for fall. Since the weather here is still warm and balmy, dark colors and thick fabrics just seem out of place, despite it being almost November. This wool blazer I donned for the cooler mornings and these photos is the closest I am going to get in terms of dressing for fall at the moment.
While my skirt is something new, my purple bag is something old. Purple is my favorite color and a color that can easily transfer from season to season. Below are some of my purple picks for this fall and beyond.
