Since I have such pale skin, sometimes I look so drained out when I wear a black or white top. For that reason, I thought it would be a great idea to add this colorful purple scarf that pops against the white top. I really love how the scarf adds color to my face and makes me look so much healthier and un-pale (invented word, jeje).

I also decided to add another more subtle pop of purple with these wonderful purple pumps. These shoes are actually one of my all-time favorites, so I was very pleased to be wearing them today! And to finish it off, the skirt ties together both pops of purple!

Do you feel that white or black tops drain you out?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this purple scarf:

  2. White totally washes me out as well. I have olive undertones in my skin and whites and pastels just do nothing good for me. But a warm plum like that scarf? Oh yes. Delightful.

  3. I always feel washed out in pure white unless I have a killer tan, which I usually don't. This outfit is so retro and ladylike and GORGEOUS, though. You totally avoided the washed out look. Well done!

  8. I absolutely feel like white drains me out a lot, but a bright scarf or necklace is the perfect way to wear white and still brighten your face. Gorgeous!
