Love for Magenta

Top: Gap, $9
Bottoms: Gap, $35
Booties: Forever 21, $22
Purse: Love Culture, $20
Scarf: Rue 21, $10

Things I'm grateful for:

a) 50 degree days in the dead of winter
b) Treadmills and diet ice cream 
c) The makers of this magenta cross-shoulder bag

I literally have been planning my outfits lately around this purse. It's just so bright and fun during these gray and snowy winter days. Turns out that not a lot matches well with magenta, except for black, gray and white. That's actually probably not accurate at all, but that's all my brain has come up with. Maybe that's what you all can do for me. What, you think you can read my blog for free? No, it's up to you to come up with original content for me to post and claim as my own original content. I'd say it's a fair price to continue watching me post mediocre outfits and talk about my husband and my job.



Also, I've been nominated (AGAIN!) for the Liebster Award by Angela at Selfless Ambition. That's two in one week, my friends! I will not be answering the questions or nominating anyone this time because I'm sure last week's questions were more than enough private information about Lynette than anyone wants to know. But I did have a moment like this for getting two nominations in one week:

    1. Looks like I need to buy some navy! I don't think I own any. But that combo does sound like a dream!
      Although, truth be told, the stripes on my top are navy. Like super dark navy. Secret's out.

    2. Ugh! See Mo Go fail! I thought they were black. :) But I think you need to go buy a really cute silk-ish navy shirt dress or a navy pencil and try it with this bag. I don't think you'll regret it.

    3. I raided my closet for navy after this comment today, FYI. :)

  4. i'm wearing the same color combo today! i'm actually jealous of your 50* weather because it's 37 in Austin today and i'm going to put off outfit photos for as long as i can. i really want a bright statement bag now. i've been thinking orange, because it's my signature color, but this bright magenta is awfully tempting.
    stay warm & inspired!

    1. My twin sister actually lives in Austin and she's been whinin' about that "cold" weather too. ;) Check cheaper stores like Forever 21 (especially that huge one at the Domain) for cute bags like mine! They'll be $25 or less, as opposed to the similar ones I'm seeing elsewhere, for double that price or more!

    1. Oh yeah, and what about purple? I feel like pink and purple are a great look, especially since bold colors are where it's at this spring!

    2. I'm soooo ready for spring colors right now! For some reason, I don't have any purple in my closet! May have to pick something up.
