Purple Sunset

I am a big fan of combining vintage and new items together. Most of the time I prefer them to still look modern and as if I just bought it from the store today. This vintage purple silk top is a favorite in my closet right now. It is so soft and the color is a dusty dark purple. Many of you ask me where I vintage shop in the area and I plan to have a post on it soon. However to be honest with my schedule I tend to vintage shop online a lot. I love Etsy and eBay. I tend to favor Esty since the prices are better. 

I have a crazy schedule over the next week and I will be in San Diego for a work sales recognition trip and then I will be Orange County for the Crossfit Regionals. I am working out with my gym's affiliate team. Trust me ladies- with work, family, the blog, it can be hard to do Crossfit the way I want, but I have tried to realize I can only do MY best and I am just going to have fun out there and work hard. My boyfriend on the other hand does this competitively and he competed in the Crossfit Games last year. Here is a video of him doing kipping pull ups and my little head in the bottom of the screen.

Gorgeous top - it really does look quite modern. The necklace looks lovely over it and the floral skirt is perfect. Love those peep toe boots as well. Good luck with all you have to do! Busy times these days, just have to keep in mind that there is something meaningful we are working toward :)

Cute outfit!
Crossfit sounds so intriguing. No wonder you are in such great shape.

Michelle Elaine said...

I've got a bunch of tops like that too. ♥ thrifting. The weather hasn't been nice enough for me to wear any of them though.

Have fun!

Love the skirt and I love how you paired it with a plain top. Gorgeous! xoxo

Gorgeous shots per usual. The blouse is lovely with your hair.

Your man is a machine! I'm stoked that Crossfit got me doing regular pull-ups. And I'm sure we can agree on burpees. Love to hate 'em. You work it in the OC! :)

I love the skirt. The blouse looks contemporary, probably mostly because vintage has become current in a way. I know what you mean. I never have time to even just work out!

Melanie said...

Very pretty way to modernize your top. I really like it--it's such a flattering color!
