This is without the flash. The purple is really more vibrant, like in this next picture:
Top and pants, both Banana Republic. Black heels will most likely be Nine West since my Cole Haan's haven't arrived yet.
I think this is a good outfit because it's not too boring, but it isn't form-fitting and a distraction. Both the pants and the top are super-comfortable (hoping my shoes don't kill me tomorrow, I'm used to wearing my New Balances, Shox, or Rainbows all day, every day!). Plus, the total cost of my outfit is less than $50 for the top, pants, and shoes.
