I’ve never really been a purple girl, it’s not that I don’t like the color, but for some reason, it’s the one shade I have the least of in my wardrobe. When Topshop asked if I would share a summer look with all of you, the first thing I thought of featuring was a white dress. You see, a white dress just screams summer to me and I thought it would be perfect for the theme for this collaboration. However, before I even made it to the dress section of topshop.com, I spotted this skirt and immediately did a complete 180 on what my plans were for this post! I loved the bold print and of course, the shape of the skirt (so lady-like) but I think the thing that I loved the very most was that it was a total different color scheme than what I typically wear (It’s made me want to keep adding more shades of purple into my wardrobe). Happy Thursday everyone!

  1. Love your skirt,it’s so colorful and just amazing.I agree with you about the shape of the skirt,I really love it but I’m kinda afraid of trying it,I don’t think it would look good on me but it looks great on you. <3

  2. Rachel we are in the process of building a new house and I am designing my dream closet. I am dying to see your closet in full detail for ideas and tips. Your previous posts only give me a glimpse and it is killing me! Can you please send me pics of the full deal or any tips you have. I would be thrilled! Thanks for your time!

    1. Liz! So excited for you, congrats on the new build. All I have to say is be sure to check the blog tomorrow and on Monday (if you know what I mean ;)!!

  3. So pretty! BTW, I think the link to the YSL Lip Stain #6 might be wrong….it says that color is camel but it looks like you are wearing purple gloss. Please let us know the color of your gorgeous gloss please :)

    1. Gena,

      Sorry about that! I meant to put #26 but I left the 2 out ;) So it’s YSL Glossy Stain #26. I just updated. Thanks for letting me know!

      xo, Rach

  4. I love the color on you! Although, I’m not much of a purple person. I need purple shades in my wardrobe as well.

  5. Purple is my newest color crush, so I was thrilled to see this post!! I love all shades, especially the color of your top! This is such a fun and flirty look! I love the amazing colors of the plaid skirt. Great outfit to transition into the fall. That YSL lip color looks amazing on you! I actually picked up a similar MAC color last weekend:) Beautifil as always!! Loving your hair straight!!!

  6. I completely understand why you changed your mind: the skirt is so beautiful! Perhaps, you will reconsider purple after this photo shoot? I am also a brunette and I feel that purple works for brunettes. May be purple is a new pink for Pink Peonies? ;)
