'Now Purple With Love's Wound'

Enjoying the Spring sun in one of my new Zara knit sweaters. Love the $19 price tag; hate that it snags very easily. Still, it's a great buy, and I love the peek-a-boo cut-out in the back. Paired it with my purple, cotton voile skirt for a little play on texture. Perfect combo for those not-so-warm/not-so-cool Spring days.
