Why You Should Start Wearing Purple

FILED IN: Pretty For Real

When I'm shopping, I tend to buy the same colors over and over again. Blush pinks, creams, grays, anyone? But this winter, I decided to start wearing purple and I have been in love. I feel like the lighter shades are universally flattering and look great on every skin tone.

(Please disregard the sickled foot in this photo. You see NOTHING.)

I love mixing different shades of the color together or adding an unexpected purple accessory as an accent color. I also love using the leopard bootie as a neutral.


Check out some of the amazing pieces I have found during my wine-fueled online shopping expeditions and start wearing purple! Most are under $100, so I'm definitely going to be stocking up on a few of these to carry me into the warmer months. Comment below and let me know you favs! Or, if you buy any, tag me on Instagram when you wear it! Dying to see.


As always, thanks for reading and sharing!

XO, Christi

    I love this so much! I’ve just recently started a fashion and style blog and you are my inspiration! I’ve added a couple of these items to my wish list though it will take till next year to save for them, so you’ll be tagged in the posts very very late! Love your style so much ❤️

    I really like the added purples, they are very pretty on you with your light hair. Also the boots are great! I love that print.

    Christi purple looks amazing on you !!
    Isn’t there something about purples and lilacs that make everyone happy . It’s such a fun colour.

    Now the target link for the blazer/ cardigan doesn’t work 🙁 I so wanted one .

    Thinking I may need to hide my card statement from USA shopping 🙈

    Mum said to say you look fabulous and keep being amazing ! And also thank you for always been so kind to me . 💗 messaged passed on .

    Seriously so behind on your blog sorry I’ve not been well as you know .

    Love from
    Michelle xoxo ☘️
