Sunday Edit: A Passion for Purple?

Not anymore!  Quite a few years ago, anyone who knows me would tell you “this girl loves purple, it’s her favorite color.”  And surely it was!  I was attracted to all things purple since basically kindergarten and I’d like to belief I’ve grown past that and matured a bit.  Over the last few years, I’ve grown to love the simplicity and the clean aesthetics of white.  I’m trying to make white happen, but like I mentioned in my minimalism post, I am trying, but I’m not good at minimalism.  Most things turn out much busier then I like or intend them to be. 


But back to the purple discussion. 
Sometime last winter, I mentioned to my husband that the most fashionable color for 2014 was going to be some sort of lavender purple (radiant orchid) and that he wouldn’t find me partaking in this trend.  And then I thought about it for a minute and realized I had already stocked up on pastel purple nail-polishes and I even purchased a lavender cream sundress.  Ha! 

(Note the purple dress, purple phone case and purple charms on my bracelet.  Ha-ha.  Besides the obvious excess of purple, it also WASN’T my intention to match outdoor greenery.)

Rummaging through my closet, I was shocked to find quite a few remnants of my purple loving craze.  I think I'm okay with it.  I still love purple.  I’d still wear it on occasion.  I always said purple is my snow-white color as it makes my skin paler (in a good, ivory kind of way) and my brown hair darker.  Also, now that it's Spring, almost summertime, there are purple flowers everywhere—and they are beautiful:  Purple tulips, purple pansies and recently, massively large purple onion plants (allium). 



I like them too. 
I guess I don’t mind that purple is so mainstream popular this year.  However, this does NOT mean I’m going to get decked out in all purple again, or that I would dye my locks lavender to join the unicorn hair trend.  I’m sure you have seen girls (and boys) with pastel purple, blue or pink hair this year or even as early as last summer.  No worries, this is not going to happen :)
