Birthstone Purple

My birthday was Sunday, so I took full advantage of the fact that my birthstone is amethyst & wore a lot of purples. I wore this outfit to a picnic with friends at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, followed by hands-on geeky fun at the adjacent Exploratorium.

What I'm wearing:
Black knit dress, Target | Purple long-sleeve knit top, Old Navy | Purple lace-print leggings, Target | Tall black leather boots, Clarks | Amethyst necklace, gift from my husband for my bday last year, bought in Kauai | Purple dangly earrings painted with tiny bats, made by a local artist | Black flower hair pins, random accessory store


Cupcakes topped with pink bats, brought by my friend Wendi

  2. Wow I love that necklace!! Purple is such a pretty color. Happy birthday! Oh, and I love the Palace of Fine Arts. Spent a few hours by myself there with I was in SF. I have a thing for any remnants from World Fairs. There's something kind of spooky about them.
