Wear Purple Day

First off, I apologize for the lack of posting in the last few days.  I was working the weekend shifts at work, and by the time I was done for the day, I just wanted to crawl into pjs and relax.  Weekends are always super hectic at work.  The plus side is the day goes by super fast, the downside is being tired.  To make up for it, I have a bevy of pictures today!  The weather is simply gorgeous and I didn't know which pictures to use, so you get them all!  

Oh and I am super excited about dinner tonight.  I like to make beef fajitas, but I always over cook the beef so it gets tough, and that really is not very tasty.  I found a recipe for making the beef in the slow cooker, so that is quietly cooking away right now.  I will report back on the findings later.

In honour of Wear Purple Day, I am wearing, well, purple.  I was thinking to myself "hmmm Jess, you do not own much purple"  but that is really not true, I have more then I thought!  So today is a purple sweater, purple socks (which you can't see) purple in my dress, and I really think that is some light, my boots take on a purple-ish tone.

I originally fell in love with the Frye lace up boots from 2 years ago, but out of my price range.  Then one day my friend Vivienne took me to a consignment store in West Vancouver called Second Suit (I think?) and I found these there, almost perfect condition. Thank you Vivienne!


  1. I love the dress! I have more purple in my closet than I thought, too. I wanted to wear purple today, but I have to wear a work polo everyday. Plus, I've been too sick to do anything except come home and fall on the couch. You look great!

  2. Oh no Viktoria :( I hope you feel better soon, it sounds like you have been out of it for awhile now :( Ack, I know all too well about the work polo thing, give me colours and patterns please!

  3. Great outfit... Love those boots!! I love it when I find stuff that I wanted new but find in a thrift store!! That is meant to be!!
    I like the style of that belt too, very cute!!

    I don't know about you but man its damp and cold here.. all I want to wear is sweaters.. maybe I have to adapt after being away in Hawaii in the sun... I had all these outfits organized in my closet and now its too cold to wear them!!

  4. That was such a fun shopping day! We must do it again, but this time look for more!!
    And better parking..... I know just the spot!

  5. I love the colours in your outfit. You look really nice in these shots. I don't eat beef, but my hubby does... i rarely cook it though. I don't like touching and cutting up red meat. I'm a bit of a wuss actually :-)
