Southern Fashion Bloggers Group Post: Mardi Gras

As I've said before, Mardi Gras is a time for the extravagant, the loud, and the easy. Anything goes. There are no rules. You can dress up, you can dress down, full costume, no costume. It's totally up to you! I tend to go for the glamorously comfortable look, if there is such a thing. And I usually don't wear that many accessories to make room for the beads.  For this Southern Fashion Bloggers group post, I thought I'd focus on the essential Mardi Gras colors -- purple, green, and gold.

Purple Dress: Looks lightweight and easy to move in. Perfect Mardi Gras combination for me!
Color Block Booties: Could they be any more perfect for Mardi Gras?
Purple Shorts: Perfect little dash of color if you're going for a more subtle look. Add some flashy green or gold to stand out a little more.
Purple Top: Sweet and simple and saving room for beads.
Suede Brogues: Another simple purple color addition to any easy outfit.

Dazzle Earrings: Dress it up with these pretties.
Tights: A funkier way to add a Mardi Gras color to your outfit. Save these for the St. Patty's Day Parade soon approaching. ;)
Maxi Dress: Another dressier look that stands out.
Paisley Tunic: I actually will be wearing this exact piece on Sunday except in gold instead of green. Found it at a local boutique. Extremely comfortable and can easily be dress up for night time.
Sequin Bag: I mean come on, sequins pretty much always = Mardi Gras.

Sequin Top: Darn those Tumblrs and their crappy crediting. I can't find the original source to this picture, but it was too good to pass up. If you know the origin, please give me a shout. LOVE this pic. Perfect for Mardi Gras in my opinion.
Leggings: Fun way to add some color.
Nail Polish: Glittery nails. The best. Mine are currently a glittery gold.
TOMS: Comfortable and sassy. Perfect.

And one more color combo just for lagniappe -- black & gold!

Alice+Olivia Top: Too fun.
Glitter Shoes: If you know the credit to these, please let me know! I love these feet. The black socks are a perfect Who Dat touch.
Feathers, and Backless, and Sequins, OH MY! I can just see her walking down the streets of New Orleans. And to be completely honest, I wish I was her! So perfect.
Dress: Very appropriate. 
Feather Shoes: Wow. If these don't scream New Orleans, I don't know what does!

I like all the looks, but especially the purple. Mostly because I think purple is flattering on almost anyone. That Modcloth dress is adorable!
