purple, summer to winter

I wore this dress for my grandparents, 89th and 90th birthday celebration in Maine this summer.  I layered it with browns and teal to make it winter worthy.  My mom and I went and looked a tiny bit at the Christmas trees. I just wasn't ready to get a tree yet.   

Instead she was so kind to take outfit pics for me! Thanks mom!  :)
With "Daddy Elvis" in the same dress at the bday party.   Gramps turned 90 this year and Grammie, 89. They've been married 67 years!  I want a love like that!!

It's amazing how much layering and a change of footwear can transform an outfit. I like how it pops against the red of the fence- cool picture. :)
