Fauxionable Outfit – Stripe Accents

Looks like we have gone from a cool Spring straight to Summer here in DC! This means my dresses and skirts will be on full rotation mode! Wearing this purple dress today in my rotation of dresses (last seen here). I’m pairing the dress with a stripe sash instead for a fresh outfit and it matches the stripe lining of the ZARA blazer, hence the title of today’s post. 😉

Fauxionable Outfit – Purpley Prints

It’s much warmer today, or rather the weather is more apt of Fall with a high of mid-60s. Thus, a lighter coat and since it’s a Federal holiday – Veteran’s Day – I’m wearing jeans to work on a Monday! (I work for a government contractor, so Federal holiday = no clients)

Fauxionable Outfit - Purpley Print

I usually pair this top and scarf together as a go-to outfit but decided to add the argyle vest into the mix and mix prints together. Since it’s all different shades of purple, I think it worked out pretty well. That or maybe I’m biased!

Hope you have a great week ahead!

Fauxionable Outfit – Purple with Mixed Accents

Trying to maximize the use of my scarfs and sashes in this outfit as mixed accents to compliment the purple shirt dress.
