Fashion Over Forty: Purple Colored Top for Late Summer and Early Fall

Hello and welcome! 

I'm taking this Friday off from posting, so I'm sharing this week's outfit post a day earlier. Hope you've had a good week so far! Our schools started this Tuesday ... hard to believe I now have a senior in high school as well as a freshman. Time flies! Our district decided to go the virtual learning route for the time being. It's different for sure but I think they are making the best of it. I even got to assist with recording my son's physics lab in the backyard :-)

While it seems like fall weather arrived here this week with the rainy days and cooler temps, we had a beautiful long weekend when these pictures were taken and I think this muted magenta colored  top colored top is the perfect color choice for this time of the year. The color reminds me of the purple mums.

I wish I could link to this sleeveless top from LOFT, but I've had it in my closet for a few years. I love the loose fit and banded bottom, as well as the details on the neckline. I did find a few alternative options and they are linked at the end of the post. 

My crop jeans are by Kut from the Kloth, Lauren. There are a few sizes left at Zappos and they are marked down to under $40. These are 24" inseam and love this inseam on me for a straight crop jeans. (I'm 5'2.) I'm in a size 0 and would say they run true to size, but size down if in between sizes.  
Amazon has a couple of sizes left as well. 

My rose gold slides were an impulse buy from Marshall's earlier this summer. I couldn't find a link to their online shop and they are probably sold out now, but this pair from Amazon does look similar. 

I accessorized with a simple gold toned leaf necklace I picked up last year from LOFT. This was actually a two piece set and also included a longer necklace with a larger leaf. I'm wearing the smaller one here. It's no longer available but Amazon has many to choose from. 

My handbag is a few years old. I found it at Target, it's faux leather so was very inexpensive. This tote bag is similar from Amazon. For a 100% leather option, this bag from Everlane would be a great choice but it's quite expensive.

I love that magenta color. I just wore a short sleeved sweater in that same tone last week.

Oh Beerentöne im Spätsommer ❤️ Das steht Dir soo gut. Du siehst klasse aus. Hier ist es wieder heiss geworden, bis 32 Grad. Verrückt.
Liebe Grüße Tina

So beautiful! LOVING the color!

Ellibelle said...

Isn't it such a pretty color! I need to get my sweaters out soon! Had to turn on the heat yesterday, but I think it's supposed to warm up again this weekend.

Ellibelle said...

Dankeschoen, liebe Tina! Wir hatten eine ziemlich kalte und regnerische Woche, es soll aber auch wieder warm werden :)

Ellibelle said...

Thanks so much, Jennifer!

I can't wait to wear jeans ! Giving a last twirl to some of my very bright bottoms and hoping for cool weather soon!

Mica said...

That top is such a nice colour on you and works really well with your jeans! :) It's good you are all enjoying online learning! It was so hard for me trying to juggle online learning with a 4 and 5 year old and work from home at the same time - I'm so glad schools are back here!

Hope you are having a good weekend :)

I love the colour of your top. I dug some of my sweaters out the other day, but the weather in the UK is crazy. Cold and wet one minute and hot and sunny the next! :)

Very pretty! Love the color!

Ellibelle said...

Thanks for stopping by, Elizabeth!

Ellibelle said...

I think they are perfect for this time of the year!
Thanks for visiting!

Ellibelle said...

I can imagine being so ready for a bit cooler weather after a hot Georgia summer! Early fall is possibly the best time of the year!

Ellibelle said...

I can imagine how hard it must be for parents with small children trying to do online learning!! Happy to hear your schools are back in session! Hope it's happening here soon too! Online learning is ok but I know the kids miss the daily interactions at school.

Ellibelle said...

My fall clothes are all still packed away. Hope you're getting a few more sunny days!

Ellie, I love this color on you. What a cute top. And the dark washed jeans are so, so good, too. Perfect styling for this time of year! Thanks for linking up.

Way back I had a friend who was into creating a colour palette based on hair and skin tone. Blues are great for me and I like them. The red colours clash with my red tinged hair. - Margy
