Royalty


{Oxfords -- Rack Room Shoes -- Tights: H&M -- Dress: Modcloth -- Cardigan: Anthropologie -- Belt: Thrifted -- Hat: Modcloth}




Love my new cap I received for Christmas. It somehow magically matches this cardigan I got last year! Plus it kept my ears all nice toasty for the day!


Purple has always been one of my favorite colors. Up till recently however, I didn't own any purple clothing! Thanks to my loving family and the holiday season my wardrobe is now filled with purple goodies, including, dresses, scarfs, hats, and tights! Why is purple my favorite you ask? It's majestic and girly soft at the same time. The best part is common folk were not allowed to wear purple back in the day, it was reserved for royalty alone. Which is just a little fact I picked up through my obsession with the Tudors {no, not just the TV show! Though it was really good.. } I feel connected to them somehow, which I am sure is silly. I have this little belief that I was on of Henry VIII's wives that her head chopped off. I'm super sensitive to things touching the front of my neck... I can't even wear turtle necks or shirts buttoned all the way to the top. I know it's a weird theory, but maybe in a past life, who knows!

Just want to mention quickly here that Modcloth is having a sale on hundreds of items, up to 70% off! I might have snagged four dresses already... anyways check it out!

My sister is the same way about things around her neck. How funny! Also, I love purple! Mostly because it is my daughter's favorite color and she is irresistible. I love your hat and the cardigan and how they ever so subtly match. Great look!

Super cute outfit! the grey and yellow in the sweater compliment the purple dress. I've totally been raiding Modcloth too. As soon as they posted that they were having a sale, I hit that up!

You look so good in purple and I love your white tights. I have never been brave enough to pull them off.

And omigod, I bought five different pieces. And it was under the price of one of their dresses. Now that's how I like to shop!

You look absolutely stunning miss Kaylee! I LOVE the purple mustard and grey mix! I'm doing that color palette in my sewing room. At first I couldn't figure out why I didn't like the purple so much and then when my mom recommended that I use mustard as an accent color I was like O.O you are god. Hahah! (Sorry I'm off subject, it just made me think of that!) ;)

You are so funny! I can't stand things even being remotely close to my neck after someone tickles me there! It's like the tingly feeling doesn't go away! Haha. Who knows! Maybe you are King Henry's inlaw! ;P
