I went to the Nordies anniversary sale this past weekend, and needless to say, I was like a little kid in a candy store! Amidst racks of sweaters and coats for fall, i managed to find a cute peasant top, and two dresses...all in the color purple! Now, I've never been a huge purple wearer, but for some strange reason I am now officially in lust with this royal color. I think purple looks good on all skin tones and hair colors. It's a very powerful color, but with much more subtlety than say, red. I have been obsessed with dresses this summer because they are so easy to just throw on and head out the door. Where I live in California, it is so incredibly hot! So a dress is the perfect remedy. You can make a dress as casual or as fancy as you want, depending on shoes and accessories.

The first dress I bought is dark purple with a plunging neckline and a self-tie waist. Super comforable and flattering!

The second dress I bought is a magenta/purple knit that has ruffles at the neckline. It reminds me of a shirt dress because it doesn't have much shape, but I can always wear a belt with it to accentuate my waist. I love it!

My third purchase is a lilac peasant top. It is sheer, so a cami underneath is a must! But I already wore it yesterday and I love the color and how it pops. When I think of casual dressing for summer, this top is what I think of. It is lightweight and breezy :)

Just to throw a different color into the mix, I also bought a wallet in a pretty tan color. I already have a wallet that I adore...and it's purple! But I can't wait to use it once i retire my current one.

Overall, my shopping experience at Nordstrom was fun and the deals were great. Everything I purchased was under 40 dollars, and that's amazing for such a high end department store! Sales are the best, and I think I have enough purple to last me a long time.
