If you read my last post, you saw a lot of purple. I actually called it wine or berry, but it was definitely a variation of purple. Today I am showing you another outfit that has purple in it.
When we lived in Florida, I never wore any clothing that color, because my husband did not like purple, and always made some kind of negative comment if I wore it. This is a man who always compliments me on my appearance, so I figured if he made a negative comment, he must really hate it.
Funny how things can change! We moved to Georgia and it just so happens that the nickname of the local high school is the Purple Hurricanes. Everything in our town is purple, especially during football and baseball seasons. Since my husband is the Superintendent of Schools, he is the biggest high school athletics fan here. And guess what? He has dozens of purple shirts, jackets, hoodies, and even ties. The color he used to hate is now his favorite color. Funny how my wearing a beautiful purple outfit could not change his mind, but high school kids wearing sweaty sports jerseys could. LOL
Here is the top I started with. When I tried it on, I knew I would have to put something over it, but what else is new? 😉 It was on the clearance rack at Belk ( our store has the most awesome clearance racks) for $6.00.
Isn’t this cute? HAHA I would never wear this top like this, but I see people all the time (if you recognize yourself, stop doing this at once!) who dress like this with their their midsections highlighted for all to see.
I guess I could actually try to lose a few pounds and then I would not have to worry about it. But for now, I am stuck with having to camouflage.
I started by adding a jacket. Fooled you! No sweater today. 😉
Still did not look right, so tried tucking in the top and adding a belt.
Much better. Camouflage is working.
