Purple Rain

So…. what’s with the title Purple Rain?  Hubby’s comment when he saw my outfit.  For those of you not familiar, it’s an old movie with Prince.  I actually loved the movie!

  1. Hubby has a great sense of humor and a sharp eye! Right to the point about the jacket.
    Perfect match with your scarf…
    These animal pics are irresistible. I am sharing with all the family!
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Just right … this little military jacket with everything else. You just have this genius at putting these diverse elements together in such tasty, tasteful ways.
    Have a great week … the pet and animal memes are always so welcome and funny!

  3. I grew up in Mpls, same as Prince, and he’s always been a favorite so I think the Prince reference is a compliment. You look fabulous!

  4. I always knew you were a rocker at heart! I love Prince’s music, not sure why I never saw the movie. The animal pics made me laugh out loud – loved the tigers!

  5. Purple Rain……. OOOOOHHHHH-KKKKAAAAYYY!!!! I’d call your outfit FABULOUS!!! I LOVE the booties!!

    I always adore when you post the pet pictures. I want the chi puppy–so dear!!

    • Hi Susan! Thank you so much! As for bf jeans, I have three pairs. Two of them are 7 for All Mankind and a pair of Joe’s Jeans. All three are relaxed fit and very comfy. I’ve also heard Gap and Zara jeans are great, too. I’ve not had experience with those brands to tell you how they fit. Here are the links to two online shops that I love. piperlime.com shopbop.com and you might find something at amazon.com .

      Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you in anyway!

  6. purple rain? I must have watched that movie a million times. Loved it. And I had to laugh! You look better than Prince!

  7. Haha, now I have a a Prince song in my head 😀 I remember as a child asking my dad as to why the dude had a woman’s voice? And dad did such a fatherly thing… saying go ask your mom 😀

    As to your outfit? As usual, Jeannie. Chic chic chic ;)x

  8. Jeannie…sometimes the guys don’t get it. This outfit is a study in knockout accessories. Love the Missoni scarf, the BOOTS and the fabulous LV bag. I have issues….I want them all so bad! LOL!

  9. LOL, my sister was obsessed with Prince and Purple Rain. You animal pictures always make me smile. Your booties are so cute, love that scarf and the jacket is pretty special too. But once again, you have a purse to envy. The color is gorgeous. Have a wonderful weekend, pretty lady!

  10. LOVELY post:) I follow your wonferful blog and I hope you follow me also.

  11. You look fabulous but that’s nothing new!!! 😉 The scarf is beautiful and I love your booties!
    You really know how to put it all together for a totally fashionable look!

  12. LOL! Those captions are hilarious!
    Love your outfit! Everything is just perfect – can’t decide which I love most but I guess the boots – want them now! I’m trying a bit of pattern mixing myself for Visible Monday tomorrow.

  13. This post is great, I’m still laughing, mainly because we all remember Prince and ‘Purple Rain’ like it was yesterday. At least your husband is paying attention to details, although you do look A LOT better in the jacket than Prince did. Love those beautiful booties, they look so soft and comfy. You look perfectly classy as always.

  14. Those totally made me laugh : ) Especially the first couple. I really needed that.

    Purple Rain is a classic! How can you find any fault with that? I love the jacket.


  15. I love everything about this look!! So cool! But that bag…. that bag is beyond FIERCE!!! I love it! And I also am a huge Purple Rain fan (Prince fan in general but Purple Rain is definitely my favorite)!!

  16. I’m glad I’m not the only one that loved Purple Rain. You can’t beat the antics of Morris Day and the Time in that movie! And who didn’t want to be Prince’s girlfriend back in the 80’s? LOL Love the look, love the purse!

  17. Hubby’s right; that jacket is amazing! I love it and the whole outfit is really edgy and cool.
    Thanks for all the sweet animal memes. You know I have a soft spot in my heart for the furry creatures of the world 🙂

  18. I do remember Prince but didn’t see “Purple Rain.” You look fabulous, as usual (I just want to look fabulous once!!!!!) ;-). Anyway, LOVED the pics at the bottom. They really made me laugh and you have no idea how badly I needed to laugh tonight. THANKS!!! I’m going to post the first pic of the little girl and the cat on FB. I’m still laughing!!! 🙂

  19. Hi Jeanie, I always enjoy your animal pictures – love them all 🙂 I DO remember the movie and ALSO enjoyed it. This is such a great look and perfect for Seattle life. I’ll be in boots until June.. Speaking of boots, your booties are adorable. Thanks for sharing the links!

    Have a great weekend!
