Purple Reign is of course a play on words for Purple Rain. I am still sad about the passing of Prince Rogers Nelson. I am not celebrity crazy by any means, but two deaths had me in tears – Whitney Houston and Prince. The music of both artists was a big part of my growing up, of my becoming a grown woman. It sounds cliche but yeah both artists have songs that are the songtracks of my life, that take me back to specific places and times. When Prince passed, my college roommate and sorority sister posted on Facebook how we would watch Purple Rain a ca-gillion times in our student center. Gosh so many memories came rushing back. The color purple has always been special to me, it is the color of royalty and Prince is definitely music royalty. I have said the talent and genius of Prince will never be matched, that I know for sure. So in honor of Prince, I am rocking purple in today’s OOTD, take a peek…
This OOTD was so easy and as always beyond comfortable. The off the shoulder look is one of the top trends this season. I like how this top has the spaghetti traps, finishes the look a bit. This one is from Gwynnie Bee but here is a cute option and another cute option.
I have mentioned before that I use the Gwynnie Bee clothing subscription service to keep my wardrobe fresh without spending all my coins. With this subscription, you can borrow dresses, skirts, pants, tops, and even outerwear – wear it as long as you like and then return it or buy it. This top is remaining in my wardrobe for the time being and may just get purchased in the very near future! You want to try Gwynnie Bee? You can get a free month of clothes!
I paired this super cute top with jeggings, my first time wearing them. They look like denim but pull on like a legging. These were a little big so I would suggest sizing down to get the look of jeans. And stick to the darker wash for a more slimming leg. Finished the look with simple accessories, vintage clutch and lace-up sandals.
Do you have a song that brings to mind specific memories of good times?
