One Purple Jacket

At the end of summer, I purchased a Grace Elements ponte knit jacket at Stein Mart for about $28.  I love it and have found so many ways to wear it!  That is when I know a garment works for me...is when I actually have too many ways to use it! I should never spend money on an item that only has one moment...that would be a budget killer! 

Purple has always been one of my favorite colors and I love it
with grey, black, green, white, blue....even red!  Also, the knit is so comfortable and moves well for my active lifestyle!
One Purple Jacket has made autumn so much fun for me!  What do you think your favorite autumn garment is going to be?

Have a fabulous Tuesday everyone!!!

  1. It's a fabulous color on you Pam, and that particular purple especially goes with so many other colors it's almost a neutral! Great find.

  2. DSW! Im going there asap. Love the shoes.

  3. Very pretty in purple, Pam, and I love the flower necklace. I am loving all the dark shades of blue everywhere this fall.

  4. That is one beautiful jacket, Pam and you're right. Purple is like a neutral in so many ways in that it plays well with so many colors. I think it would be great with that other amazing neutral, leopard print too. Loving your unique accessories and your radiant smile.

  5. I love that you're budget shopping and fashionable too.

  6. I love the purple jacket. Such a powerful color. Most of all I love the flats. So versatile. You look great in all. I'm happy to have found your blog and fashion tips for women over 40.

  8. Purple is such a great color for you. Love the 2 looks.

  9. I love you in any colour, but it is true that purple loves you nearly as much as I love you in that gorgeous skirt, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

  10. Love both purple combo's!! I really am intrigued by the flower necklace and I'm studying it to see if I can recreate it!

  11. You are so right about making our wardrobe work hard for us, Pam - and this purple jacket is wonderful. I bet you will be loving it all different ways.

  12. Purple looks fantastic on you! The olive necklace really works well with your color scheme.

  13. This purple jacket is really a winner! Like you said it combines well with so many colours, and your hair is so beautiful against it! The flats are lovely too, and the necklace that we don't talk about...

  14. I'm loving that beautiful, bold yet delicate, flowered necklace... heaven!

  15. Purple is one of my fav colors, too! You wear it SO well!
    My go to fall garment has to be the trench coat. Great for cooler mornings and late evenings.
