Layers of Purple

I'm trying hard to shop my closet and rework pieces I've owned for a while. Mixing and matching things in different ways to create new looks can be a lot of fun. I've had this blouse for years - literally. I love the color and the flowey tiers but for some reason it spends more time in my closet than out. Once I pulled it out I was determined to wear it so I layered it under a cropped cardi in a deeper shade of purple and tossed on cream ankle length trousers. I prefer ankle length or cropped trousers because they show off your shoes instead of hiding them like longer, fuller legged pants do. I'm thrilled pointy toe pumps are making a comeback this season! To say I own a few pairs would be an understatement! These leopard beauties are ancient but I still love them as much as I did when I first brought them home.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you all have a savvy and stylish start to your week! Today I'm linking up with Harpers Happenings, Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday and with Glamamom, Momtrends and BonBonRoseGirls for Monday Mingle!

You are doing the "shop your closet" too, I see! Terrific results - you look very fresh, as if you'd just bought everything this morning. Love those shoes too, aren't you glad you've kept them? Thanks so much for sharing your look with Visible Monday, and have a great day.

Purple's my favorite color (although I don't have much of it in my closet). Love it with the leopard!
